PenOffice 3.1 Offers OpenOffice Inking Support

image Phatware has released version 3.1 of their PenOffice software.  If you are an OpenOffice.org users with a Tablet PC, then you need to check out this update.  The new version of PenOffice now includes support for OpenOffice.org 3.0 or later documents.  That means that programs like Writer, Calc and Draw documents can now have handwritten notes and annotations! 

Using the PenOffice markup mode with OpenOffice.org applications is simple: launch the supported OpenOffice.org application, choose the markup mode from the PenOffice toolbar; then draw or write on the OpenOffice.org document’s window. When you are done writing, after a short timeout, the digital ink will be embedded into the OpenOffice.org document.

The program is $59.95 and there is also a 30 day trial if you are interested.  Check out the Phatware website for more information about PenOffice 3.1.

    Considering the full Microsoft Office suite can be had for the same price for students, this isn’t a very feasible proposition for students with tablets. With Open Office being free, it’s hard to justify the price of ink support at this level.
