User Guide

Installation

For information on installing the ScripTouch Toolbox please see:

Information Tab

ToolboxInformation.PNG

The Information tab provides various information about the attached device.

You will most often use this to retrieve the Device UUID when registering the device in portal.scriptel.com.

You can also retrieve the Serial number here if the sticker on the device is covered or obscured.

Any firmware errors will be reported under Last Error Message.

Firmware Tab

ToolboxFirmware.PNG

The Firmware tab can be used to download newer versions of the signature pad firmware to the attached device. Select the firmware version you wish to install and click Download. The device will automatically restart after the firmware is loaded. Do not disconnect the device during the firmware download or the pad may become inoperable. Depending on the device's previous firmware version, you may be prompted to recalibrate the device. If calibration aborts without waiting for user input, the device has detected that it does not require recalibration.

It is possible to load an older firmware than the device currently had, but this is generally not recommended except during troubleshooting.

Output Tab

This tab is only available for Easyscript devices

ToolboxOutput.PNG

The Output tab allows you to modify settings specific to the Easyscript protocol. The most common use for this tab is to disable Streaming and Compression to use the Easyscript pad with older software that does not support these features.

  • Output Mode: Easyscript devices can output in Proscript format to be used with software that does not support Easyscript. Note: only Easyscript devices can change their output mode. Proscript devices cannot output Easyscript data.
  • Compress Output: Compresses stroke data to reduce the amount of data that must be sent by the device. This option may not be compatible with some older software.
  • Stream Output: Signature data is transmitted by the device while the signature is being drawn. If disabled, the signature will only be sent after pressing the OK button. This option may not be compatible with some older software.
  • Packets per second: The number of characters transmitted by the device each second. If the software receiving the signature is unable to process the data at full speed, reducing this value may prevent data loss.
  • Timeout Delay: The number of seconds before a signature will be automatically canceled if the user does not press the OK button.

Display Tab

This tab is only available for devices with an LCD display.

ToolboxDisplay.PNG

The Display tab allows you to modify the brightness and contrast of the signature pad's display. The brightness slider adjusts the backlight; the contrast slider adjusts the LCD. Some older models do not allow these values to be adjusted.

You can also show an image on the device's display, though this is primarily for diagnostic purposes.

Card Reader Tab

This tab is only available for devices with a mag strip reader.

The Card Reader tab can be used to test the device's mag strip reader and change its output protocol. Testing can only be done while in ProScript mode.

  • ProScript Mode: Sends track data via Proscript connection protocol
  • EasyScript Mode: Sends track data as keyboard input, starting with !STCARD A preamble.
  • Keyboard Emulation Mode: Sends only track data as keyboard input, identical to many common card readers.

Sensor Tab

Note: This tab is not visible by default. You need to select "Show Advanced" in the "File" menu to make it visible.

This tab is only available for devices with an LCD display.

ToolboxSensor.PNG

The Sensor tab is most commonly used to re-calibrate the pad when the signature on the pad or computer does not match your pen input. Scriptel signature pads are designed to not need to be re-calibrated in most circumstances, however rare and severe changes in environmental factors may cause it to become necessary.

You can also see a visual depiction of the Error Correction Table and export it as a binary SRecord file.
