Q Can I use my own keycap skins?
A Yes, you can. Create an image of a square button and copy it to ...\Program Files\Claviature directory at your device. Recommended image sizes are 40*40 pixels for QVGA mode and 80*80 for VGA mode.

Q I want to use a font other then Tahoma for Claviature. Can I do this?
A Yes, you can. Copy any Unicode True Type Font (.ttf) to \Windows\Fonts directory. Make a soft reset. Now you can select and use installed font for Claviature.

Q I clicked at a symbol, but it was not entered...
A You don't need to CLICK AT a symbol. Please TAP a key containing a desired symbol and SLIDE a pen in the diagonal direction of the symbol. Another reason of your problem might be that your stroke is too short. You can set a comfortable level of Claviature sensitivity at Options.

Q Very often I get central commands instead characters.
A Try to reduce sensitivity of central symbols or to make symbol strokes longer.

Q What is the gesture mode?
A If the gesture mode is switched on you can use 4 additional strokes for fast input "Shift"/"Space"/"Backspace"/"Enter" commands.

Language Support

Q Why fonts in Pocket Word and Claviature are different?
A Claviature's font is used only for displaying symbols at Claviature keycaps. So font you use at other application might be different.

Q I installed Claviature, but there are no Thai layout?
A Claviature installation file contains all layouts. If you have no Thai layout that might means that you have an earlier version of Claviature. We recommend you to re-install Claviature from our site. If you have the latest version of Claviature, the reason might be that Thai layout file is damaged. Please download Thai layout from our site.

Q I want to use Claviature for Hebrew input, but in Hebrew layout I have only squares at the keyboard.
A That just means that the Unicode font you selected for Claviature doesn't contain Hebrew symbols. Please select another font or copy any Unicode TrueType font containing Hebrew to the device.

Q Claviature layout looks fine, but it doesn't display symbols in many applications.
A Some applications use Default System font Tahoma.ttf for displaying text. Your version of Tahoma might not support some specific languages. You need to copy a Unicode ttf font containing symbols of your language and set this font as Default System font. This font MUST contain Latin symbols also.

Q I have US version of WM SE and want to use Claviature for Japanese kana input, but can't do that. Any suggestions?
A You should have Japanese language support at your PocketPC. You can find more information on Japanese language support here: http://discussion.brighthand.com/showthread.php?threadid=74282
