The C-Pen Mac Beta software does not display the text you scan. The scanned text will be inserted at the cursor position.
This means that you can scan text into any standard program.
This is an example on how to scan text into TextEdit.
− First check that the C-Pen is connected. The C-Pen logo (in the floating window) is dark blue when the pen is
− Start TextEdit.
− Place the cursor where you want the text to appear. Do NOT click anywhere else as this will move the cursor and
make your program window “passive”.
− Place the tip of the C-Pen a few millimetres before the first character of the text. Press the C-Pen gently towards the paper and start moving it along the text line. Try to keep a steady line! Lift the C-Pen from the paper when you have scanned the last character.
− The text you just scanned will instantly be inserted into TextEdit.
The text is fully editable, e.g. you can change font type and size in your text editor to customise the text.
Note! that there is a small automatic trigger button at the tip of the C-Pen. This button activates the scanning when the C-Pen is pressed against the paper. It is important that it is pressed in during the complete scan. The automatic trigger is shown in the picture to the left.
