I have just bought a Lenovo Flex 2-14.
Unfortunately, unlike my previous Thinkpad, this model has an Elan Smart Pad instead of a Synaptics touchpad.
And one feature I really use a lot is chiral scrolling, and the Elan drivers don't seem to support this. In fact, the Elan drivers are missing a lot of features I'm used to from Synaptics.
I tried installing the Thinkpad Ultra NAV driver as a workaround, but it doesn't include the chiral scrolling feature either.
The system won't accept Synaptic drivers. seeing as it's not a Synaptics device, but is there some way to "hack" this?
This is a huge workflow issue for me.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I did find some registry tweaks to enable the Chiral scrolling menu option in the driver (using the UltraNAV driver), but I couldn't get it to work unfortunately.
Such a shame. I know it's an Elan Smart Pad and not a Lenovo specific issue, but that makes me wonder: What is the advantage of choosing an Elan pad over a Synaptics pad? Is it cheaper?

I know, it's a shame as it's such a powerfull feature.
Oh well, will have to settle with edge scroll for now and hopefully chiral scrolling will be added in the future. Thanks anyway.
