Note: This feature only works on systems that support scalable fonts, e.g. TTF.
The lupe comes with a scribble pad, a small screen area for writing practice. This feature is only available when looking at a single character. To open the scribble pad, tap to the left or right of the character shown in the lupe, depending on whether you're left- or right-handed. (Left-handers will know right away why this is important ;-) To clear the pad, press the black X button, to close it, press and hold the button.
This feature is only available when looking at a single character. To make use of it, you will need animated GIF images of the characters you'd like to see animated. If you place them in Babbletower's Java classpath, you can start the animation in the lupe. The name of each file should be the Unicode code of the character it shows, in hexadecimal.
If for example you have a collection of animated Kanji GIFs, you can place them in a Zip file and add that to the classpath when starting Babbletower. Whenever a GIF is available, a little red square appears in the lupe to the bottom right of a Kanji . Tapping on this square starts the animation, tapping on the Kanji stops it.
