Writing or drawing digital ink

You can use the cordless pen to write or draw over SMART Notebook software, SMART Meeting Pro software and other programs using SMART Ink. When you write or draw in an application or on the desktop, the digital ink becomes an object that you can erase, move, and manipulate in a variety of ways.

When you write in a SMART Notebook software or SMART Meeting Pro software, the digital ink becomes part of the file.


  • By default, SMART Ink starts when you first log on to your computer. If SMART Ink isn’t running, you can start it manually. To learn more, see Working with SMART Ink.

  • The interactive pen display ignores a palm resting on the screen.

  • If you are writing or drawing in a Microsoft Office application, see Using SMART Ink with Microsoft Office.
