Well, Jon, that sounds great. I wish my MP2100 did that.

If I do the same thing you described, and start typing, I get nothing. I
have to pick up the pen and tap to get the caret into the note.

I wonder if this is some kind of difference between 130s and 2x00s (maybe
because the 130 has a native serial port instead of Interconnect + dongle?).
