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: http://risujin.org/cellwriter
The following options are provided by CellWriter using the standard GNU
command line syntax:
--help 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.
--xid 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 keyboard.
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 setting.
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 (Metacity).
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
