There is a setting in preferences called Handwriting Recognition that
allows you to set Printing or Cursive and to adjust the spacing. Also
the item "Writing Practice" should help your Newt to learn your writing.
 But do keep in mind the "cursive" recognizer is not as good as the
"printing" one. But changing this setting will definitely help it.
