    Teaching your handwriting does not work. It does not provide a sentence to write.

    This is a clean install of AU (updated to .51) on a Surface Pro4. Anyone experiencing same problem?

    Hi,
    I have a Surface Book running (Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393) and I have exactly the same problem. I have Windows 10 Anniversary Update (New icon in system tray - "Windows Ink Workspace")

    My wife has just received a new Surface Book today running (Version 10.0.10586 Build 10586) and hers works ok.

    There must be others out there with the same issue. Hoping MS read these threads?

    Thanks.

    I have the same problem. I bought my SP4 this summer prior to the AU. The handwriting recognition worked fine and I had completed about 25 of the sentences in teaching it to recognize my handwriting. After the AU was installed I went back with the intent of completing the 50 sentences and I encountered the same problem. When I try to teach windows how to recognize only singular letters, it appears to work, but upon saving and exiting, I get a notification that it did not save.

    I type in my own words that the Surface has trouble recognizing. Type in your own sentence, then write it out.

    I have the same problem. I've taught W10 to recognise my horrible handwriting using the handwriting panel instead.

    Type it in the entry field in the screen prior to the one you posted. The yellow fields are for practicing your writing. You write directly in the yellow fields.

    But it's supposed to give me a sentence to write. There is no sentence

    I've replied twice, and neither reply was posted!

    @ttsoldier, you're right - if you go to the Personalize handwriting recognition window and select Teach the recognizer your handwriting style, you get 2 fields in which to write your text, but nothing to compare it against. Must be a bug.

    Instead, select the option to Target specific recognition errors. The next window gives you a field in which to type the problem words or expressions. After you click Next, you will get 4 fields in which to write them out. I find this feature very helpful.

    This is what Microsoft needs to fix.

    Certainly an Anniversary Update Issue. I bought an i7/16Gb/1Tb SP4 Specifically for the Handwritten Note to Text feature which was demoed by the rep (on a pre-AU) system ... still struggling to find anyone at MSFT who will even admit this has been broken!!! HOWEVER, I am such a die-hard MSFT fanboy I would consider typing the 50 recommended sentences into the "specific character and word" section (which works). Can anyone tell us what the recommended sentences are??? Or ... how about this Microsoft ... FIX IT !!! ... Standing By with Hope & Faith ... Beauvaidos

    And this was dated last August, today its July 22nd 2017. My "NEW" Surface Pro 4 that I bought in the sale of the MS web store has the old Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393 and I have the same issue of no text to copy and a 1 of 0. How do you go about getting the 10586 Build? Is there a way to get it? I bought the Surface due to it having Onenote and handwriting recognition. Come on MS why are we waiting for this?
