Newton Glossary

An almost definitive guide to Newton-related terms and trivia.


A cursor symbol (^) that indicates where the Newton will insert text written, printed, or typed by the user. The caret is only used in Newton OS 2.0 and later. Earlier versions of Newton OS used a blinking line cursor to indicate where new text would be inserted. A caret shaped gesture can be used to when editing text to indicate where a new insertion point should be placed.
