I saw in one of the apps developed by MyScript that there is a pad in which the user can write notes and use a lasso tool to select specific words and convert it to text (the app is called MyScript Memo). Does the current text API offer that lasso tool? Also, is there a way to integrate the text widget without any lines; in other words, the user can just write freely on the device without line breaks. If there is, what is the documentation for incorporating those features?
Thanks for the help,
About text selection, I think the gesture selection available in the Interactive Text Component could fit your needs.
I advise you to have a look to the API list of this component (iOS):
I am not sure to get your second point, I would advise you to try the Single Line Text widget sample and its documentation.
Please let us know if you have any other question.
