  • Publication number: 20200388244
    Abstract: A method of operation performed by a display device displaying an image on a display surface includes the steps of displaying a first image in the display surface's first area, and displaying second image in a second area different from the display surface's first area, displaying a third image formed by superimposing a writing image to the second image on the second image in second area instead of the second image, determining whether or not a condition for changing an image to be displayed in the first and second area is fulfilled, and changing the image to be displayed in the first area from first image to third image and changing image to be displayed in second area from third image to a fourth image when it is determined that the condition is wherein the first image is displayed in first area and third image is displayed in second area.
