I was wondering if there is a tool that allows for freehand text writing?

Thanks

Simon

Hello Simon,

From what I know, you can use Windows' input method to achieve that:

Thanks Alex, I'll look into this.

I did also notice on the end user editor forum that people have been discussing this and said that the pencil tool is good in PDF change for freehand writing. But it was said that the line smoothing value in PDF xchange needs to be reduced in the registry for the pencil drawn text to be clear. As I have the API, is there a way to change this setting via code instead of in the registry?

Thanks

Simon

Hello Simon,

If you can pinpoint me to the registry value that needs to be changed - I can tell you how to do it via the code.

Cheers,
Alex
