Any pen technology not working in Yoga 3 8 tab.

Hi, I bought my tab yoga 3 8 android last week only, but the any pen feature is not working at all with anything other than a stylus.

Is there anyway to activate the feature. All other touch features seems to work perfectly.

 

I even tried lenovo companion app & ran all the diagnostic tests. All is OK. But no way to test this feature.

Need help !!!

There should be an option to toggle between On and Off in the Settings. It should look like this: large.jpg

Where is this setting? I do not see it on my Yoga Tab 3 8. I am running the stock OS on the latest update.

Re: Any pen technology not working in Yoga 3 8 tab.

Have searched in all the settings options on my Lenovo yoga 3 tablet, cannot find the anypen icon anywhere. It says on the box it has this feature. Can someone advise where it can be found and activated please?

Re: Any pen technology not working in Yoga 3 8 tab.

The anypen on my tab has also stopped working. I've got two yoga tabs and the anypen works on the newest one but not the oldest, which recently had a replacement screen. I've tried updating the system to see if that refreshes the drivers but nothing works. I want to use the older one as its got all my apps - any help? I also can't find the toggle option.

Re: Any pen technology not working in Yoga 3 8 tab.

(in response to Caz_t)

I had the exact same problem - no settings and none of my styluses work. Found the solution - the AnyPen tech doesn't work with pure-plastic stylus. Beats me why. Most stylus are made of pure plastic. The answer to making AnyPen work on the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 tablet is to use a metal-tipped pen or a graphite-tipped pencil. The tech "learns" pretty quickly - the first few attempts may not work well, but the tablet soon learns that you're using a narrow-tipped stylus instead of a broad-tipped finger and adapts. Have fun!

Re: Any pen technology not working in Yoga 3 8 tab.

Thanks for responding. I still cannot see how to get the Anypen technology function to work. I have tried using a graphite pen and metal ballpoint nib on the screen, nothing happens. I cannot find a setting to turn the function on. Still confused! I wish Lenovo would take some responsibility for answering questions about their products!

 

Thank you for your help and we'll done for discovering how to get yours working. The product details and packing on my Yoga 8 tablet says I should have this function, but it seems that I have not? I will try to get in touch with Lenovo direct.
