    On all my computer, i install the included language packs (mainly keyboard layouts, but more than that comes with it) for Spanish, French, and recently, Japanese, when I decide i want to try writing / practice in the few japanese kanji and hiragana that I know. :D

    In win 7, however, it seems like only english is allowed to use the writing pad??? spanish, french, and japanese give me only the on screen keyboard; writing pad is greyed out / disabled. The only way i can write 私, for example, is to show the language bar, click IME pad, draw in the box, and then click the icon for the correct charater to insert.

    :confused:

    that makes no sense of course. It seems capalbe of understand my japanese writing and will show its guesses....so why can't i use the writing pad?

    if you dont know about this, please try installing any language and see if you can use writing pad. i wonder if it's just not fully-implemented yet or something.
