Type messages into the message area (See screen layout). You can use the normal cursor keys and the context menu displayed by right-clicking on the message area with the mouse.
Providing there is an active connection, messages are sent when return (enter) is pressed. This will clear the message area.
Messages are received in the message area on the note-taker's machine. These cannot be edited, although they can be selected using the mouse and copied to the clipboard using the context menu displayed by right-clicking on the message box with the mouse. They can then be pasted into other documents or into the main menu.
