cellwriter - grid-entry handwriting recognition input panel
CellWriter is a grid-entry natural handwriting recognition input panel. As you
write characters into the cells, your writing is instantly recognized at the
character level. When you press 'Enter' on the panel, the input you entered is
sent to the currently focused application as if typed on the keyboard.
See the program website for details:
The following options are provided by CellWriter using the standard GNU command
- Prints the command line options.
- Determines the detail level of log output:
0 = Silent
3 = Errors only
4 = Warnings (default)
5 = Informational messages
7 = Debugging information
8 = Function traces
- Redirects log output from standard error to a file.
- This option starts CellWriter in embedded mode. You can set
gnome-screensaver to call CellWriter with this option to embed CellWriter
into the unlock password prompt.
- Specifies the full path of a profile file to load instead of the
- Prevents changes from being saved to the profile.
- Places CellWriter in keyboard-only mode which prevents profile loading,
suppresses the no-samples prompt, and only displays the full on-screen
- Show or hide the main window regardless of the saved profile setting. If
an instance of CellWriter is already running, you can start a second
instance of CellWriter with --hide-window to hide its window.
- Specify the position of the main window in pixels, overriding the profile
- Controls window docking:
0 = Not docked
1 = Docked to top
2 = Docked to bottom
- Sets the extended window manager struts hint when docking. This causes all
other windows to be moved out of the docking area. This works with some
window managers (XFWM4) but can cause severe problems with others
- CellWriter needs to modify the X server keymap in order to generate
keystrokes for Unicode characters that are not already in the user's
keymap. This can potentially cause stability issues. Use this option to
prevent CellWriter from modifying the keymap.
