Persistence and interoperability are two vitally important features, especially for applications that use ink. To enable persistence and interoperability of ink, an application must allow users to:
- Save and open their documents with full fidelity of ink data.
- Move data to and from other Microsoft Windows–based applications by using the Clipboard.
The following sections detail ink interoperability.
- Ink Data Formats
- Important Interoperability Scenarios
- Persistence Formats
- Choosing Which Formats to Support
- Building Blocks
- Storing Ink in HTML
This document assumes a detailed understanding of the Clipboard. For more information about the Clipboard, see the Clipboard documentation.
