    To Pair and use digital pen in Word, Excel and PowerPoint to Draw & write with ink in Office 2019,

    * Pair digital pen with Windows 10*

    1) On your digital pen, press and hold the top button for about seven seconds to turn it on

    2) Right-click the Windows Start button.

    3) Select Settings.

    4) Select Devices.

    5) Ensure that Bluetooth & Other Devices is selected on the left side.

    5) Select Add Bluetooth or other device.

    6) In the Add a device dialog box, choose Bluetooth

    7) Select your digital pen.

    8) Choose Done to dismiss the dialog box.

    9) On the left side of the Windows 10 Settings window, switch to Pen & Windows Ink. At the bottom, select Allow apps to override the shortcut button behavior. (If the pen has a shortcut already defined for the top button, that shortcut needs to be overridden).

    *Draw and write with ink in Office 2019*

    1) On the Draw tab of the Ribbon, tap a pen to select it. Note: In Word, you must be in Print layout to draw with ink. If the Draw tab is grayed out so that you can’t select a pen, go the View tab and select Print Layout.

    2) Tap again to open the menu of Thickness and Color options for the pen. Select your preferred size and color.

    Tips: New options available in Thickness and Color options

    – There are five pen thickness settings ranging from .25 mm to 3.5 mm. Select a thickness or use the plus or minus sign to make your pen thicker or thinner.

    – Sixteen solid colors are available on the menu, with more available when you tap More Colors.

    – Eight effects are also available: RainbowGalaxyLavaOceanRose GoldGoldSilver, and Bronze.

    3) A Pencil texture is also available: When you draw with the Pencil texture while using a supported digital stylus, you can tilt the stylus to get a “shading” effect, just like you would get with a real pencil.

    4) On the touch screen, begin writing or drawing. Once you have drawn an ink shape, it behaves like any shape that you are used to working with in Office. You can select the shape, then you can move or copy it, change its color, pivot its position, and so on.

    5) To stop inking and select your annotations, either to modify or move them, pick Select The Select button on the Draw tab in PowerPoint on the Drawtab.
