About the Trackpad Handwriting input source
If you have a trackpad, you can use the Trackpad Handwriting input source to enter Chinese characters and punctuation with your finger.
When the Handwriting window is open, you can’t see or move the pointer on the screen. To use the pointer without closing the window, press the Escape key; to resume handwriting, click anywhere in the Handwriting window. To close the Handwriting window, press Control–Shift–Space bar or click Close in the top-left corner of the window.
