       cellwriter - grid-entry handwriting recognition input panel


       cellwriter [options]


       CellWriter  is  a  grid-entry  natural  handwriting recognition input panel.  As you write
       characters into the cells, your writing is instantly recognized at  the  character  level.
       When  you  press  'Enter'  on  the  panel,  the input you entered is sent to the currently
       focused application as if typed on the keyboard.

       See the program website for details:


       The following options are provided by CellWriter  using  the  standard  GNU  command  line

       --help Prints the command line options.

              Determines the detail level of log output:
              0 = Silent
              3 = Errors only
              4 = Warnings (default)
              5 = Informational messages
              7 = Debugging information
              8 = Function traces

              Redirects log output from standard error to a file.

       --xid  This  option  starts  CellWriter in embedded mode. You can set gnome-screensaver to
              call CellWriter with this option to  embed  CellWriter  into  the  unlock  password

              Specifies the full path of a profile file to load instead of the user's.

              Prevents changes from being saved to the profile.

              Places  CellWriter in keyboard-only mode which prevents profile loading, suppresses
              the no-samples prompt, and only displays the full on-screen keyboard.

              Show or hide the main window regardless  of  the  saved  profile  setting.   If  an
              instance  of  CellWriter  is  already  running,  you can start a second instance of
              CellWriter with --hide-window to hide its window.

              Specify the position of the main window in pixels, overriding the profile setting.

              Controls window docking:
              0 = Not docked
              1 = Docked to top
              2 = Docked to bottom

              Sets the extended window manager struts hint when docking. This  causes  all  other
              windows  to  be moved out of the docking area. This works with some window managers
              (XFWM4) but can cause severe problems with others (Metacity).

              CellWriter needs to modify the X server keymap in order to generate keystrokes  for
              Unicode  characters that are not already in the user's keymap. This can potentially
              cause stability issues. Use this option to prevent CellWriter  from  modifying  the
