Here at the Community, one of our favourite features of the new Galaxy Book Pro360 is the S Pen. As well as drawing or editing videos, the S Pen is super handy if you want to take notes whilst you’re on the go, in class, at a meeting, or even just at home. With Samsung Notes, anything you write with the S Pen can easily be turned into text files, which you can then save, edit, email, or even make into a book!
Everyone’s handwriting is a little different – from beautiful, artistic cursive to our Community Manager’s illegible scrawl. Although on paper this gives everyone’s writing a bit of personality, it can make it a bit tricky for your Galaxy Book Pro 360 to recognise what you’ve written and turn it into text files. But fortunately, there’s a simple way to help your laptop recognise your writing. Read on to find out more!
Teach your Galaxy Book Pro 360 to recognise your handwriting
Open the Windows menu and click on the settings icon
Click on “Devices” and then select “Pen & Windows ink”
In the Pen section, select which hand you write with
If you want the S Pen to be even more accurate, select “Ignore input when I’m using my pen”
Scroll down and click “Improve recognition”
Select what language you’re writing in
If you’re having trouble with some words in particular, select “Target specific recognition errors”
If you’re having trouble with all of your handwriting, choose “Teach the recogniser your handwriting style”
Use the S Pen to teach the recogniser your handwriting, working your way through the eight screens
Once you’re done, click “Update and exit”
Your handwriting samples will now be saved on your Galaxy Book Pro 360
Test out your handwriting on Samsung Notes. If you’re not quite happy, you can delete your handwriting samples and start again
