Does ANY stylus work with the Yoga 900 for PhotoShop et al?

I have been very happy with my Yoga 900 i7 with 64 bit system and 16GB of RAM.

 

Until I discovered I cannot get anything work as a stylus when trying to do drawing and sketiching, and simple pen tracing in PhotoShop.

 

I saw a Youtube video on the Wacom Pen (they did not say what model) that demonstrated it being used on a "ThinkPad Yoga."

 

But will it work on the 900? Will ANY stylus workw the 900?

 

Thanks!

 

I saw one on Amazon with the Lenovo brand, saying "Not compaitible with the Yoga 900."

Good day.

 

The Yoga 900 works with capacitive pens only. Those are the type that mimic a fingertip. These might be ok for some Photoshop features, but not likely for fine-point control. In addition, there won't be pressure-level sensitivity, at least of the type that one gets with a Wacom-style digitizer / active pen.

 

Hope this helps to clarify.

Regards.

Thanks. I will try to find a capacitive pen.

 

I do not need a great deal of detail, just a thinner line than my finger produces.

 

But I truly regret looking into this until after my 30 day return policy  ran out with Best Buy.
