In this paper we describe aspects to be considered for designing an intelligent pen-based annotation system. The ideal aim of such a system is to automatically recognize unconstrained free-form annotations and save the interesting information in the personalized digital memory on the computer. A first prototype which recognizes handwritten annotations and interprets their semantic meanings is described in this paper. It serves as a basis for a usability study to assess the requirements before such a system may be used in practice. The results of this study might be interesting for developing an advanced pen-based annotation system in the future.
