Erase Ink on Desktop through Infopath 2007 with Tablet SDK 1.7?

Posted on 2009-04-30

We have an Infopath 2007 solution with ink fields in some of the forms.
When in a tablet pc, the user has access to the "ink" bar at the top allowing erasing of the fields.
It also allows ink colour to be changed.

For desktop environments we installed the Tablet PC SDK. This allows writing in the fields using the mouse, but seemingly it doesn't allow the user to erase?

Is there anyway to enable this?

    No replies - but incase anyone stumbles across this thread in future searches I found a solution:

    By installing these:
    "       Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 Recognizer Pack -
    "      Ink Analysis and Input Supplement for the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition Development Kit 1.7 -

    A desktop machine then has the ink panel toolbar enabled, allowing the colouring of ink, and the erasing as per a Tablet PC.
