Inking with Office 2007

2008-07-24, 18:29 PM

I appear to have all other funtions working, but when I click the "start ink" button from any of the office 2007 packages (Outlook, word, Excel) I do not get the ink toolbar, I have moved some of the tools to a shortcut and they still do not work?

 

I have tried everything, from loading new drivers for all the tablet options, updated vista and made sure Office is at the latest patch?

 

Please any help

 

 

Thanks

Just to clarify some things:

 

Has this function worked for you previously on the same tablet on an older version of Office or Vista?   (e.g. Office 2003)

 

What is it you are attempting to accomplish with inking, that might be done by some other method?

 

For example, if you are referring to the Ink Drawing and Writing menu that was in Office 2003, that is no longer available in Office 2007, however functionality of the toolbar is available through the menu or shortcut bar.   Some details on your tablet model and O/S version (e.g. SP1, Business) might be helpful.

 

Full disclosure: Not a Lenovo employee, just someone with a X61 running Win XP SP2

I can use ink just fine in Office 2007 (any programs, e.g. outlook, excel, word) review tab >> start  inking.

 

But I'm not quite sure if it is one in the option we can choose when we install the program. In case you miss it, re-installation--or repair--should be the way the fix this.

Not sure exactly what the cause was, I tried a repair, but according to another forum someone had an issue with Office 2007 and the registory key not being marked for tablet.

 

I re-installed office again, and this solved the problem

 

Thanks
