The Windows Developer Day – Fall Creators Update event just happened and I was delighted to see a session on ink.

Long time readers of FranksWorld.com know that I have a soft spot for digital ink and the tablet form factor and that has not changed.

So, watch the video below and start adding ink support to your apps. Smile

The Windows Ink platform, together with a pen device, provides a natural way to create digital handwritten notes, drawings, and annotations. The platform supports capturing digitizer input as ink data, generating ink data, managing ink data, rendering ink data as ink strokes on the output device, and converting ink to text through handwriting recognition.

Sha and Xiao will dive into Shape, Text, and layout recognition along with talk about the Ink canvas and toolbar!
