Abstract

This software subsystem enables handwritten annotations to be superimposed upon or deleted from electronically displayed documents using an electronic tablet as an entry device, so that the user of an electronic office system can annotate electronic documents by hand as readily as this can be done by a user of paper documents in a non- electronic office system.
