After properly adding the "Chinese (Traditional, Taiwan)" Language and the "Chinese (Traditional) - New Phonetic " Keyboard on my 64-bit Windows 7 desktop system, I could not find the "Handwriting" Applet in the IME Pad. Multiple close re-examination of the configuration and settings rendered no answer to the mystery. What is even more baffling is that in the list of "Available Applets" in the Traditional Chinese IME Pad on the Windows 7 system, I found the Handwriting Applets for both Japanese and Korean without ever installing those Languages/Keyboards.
I have been using the Traditional Chinese Handwriting Applet on 32-bit Windows XP Professional for years and it is a very handy tool. After reading posts in this forum and on the Internet, it is amazing to realize that (1) I am not the only one unpleasantly finding the above out, (2) that Simplified Chinese on Windows 7 has the same problem, and (3) that other versions of Windows 7 also have the same problem. Was this an oversight? Will this be resolved in a future Windows Update? I certainly hope there is light at the end of the tunnel. Please advise.
