Lenovo Flex 3 - Problem with capacitive pen use.

2016-04-02, 17:45 PM

hi im new to the forums and i cant figure out how to make a new thread but i have a lenovo flex three and i bought it to take notes on it but my capacitive pen wont write, i try and draw a line and it just glitches out and graws dots and dashes and has never drawn a solid line thus far. Using my finger works fine but i would really like to write with a pen

Hi Space,


Welcome to the Lenovo community!


Usually the pens that work with capacitive screens have a soft rubber tip or what looks like a smooth metal mesh tip. They mimic the use of a finger on the screen, but with a bit more fine control. Machines with active digitizers, on the other hand, work by completely different mechanics and offer very fine control. Hence you try with different stylus to confirm which is defective.


Let us know how you get on.
