Re: Yoga 13 Win8.1 no more multi-touch gestures

2013-10-20, 7:19 AM

My two finger touch isn't working after upgrading to 8.1. Very annoying! This must be an 8.1 bug because I have the latest synaptics drivers. I want to know as soon as somebody solves this.

The Multi-touch and two finger click is working for me, although not originally after the 8.1 upgrade

 

I noticed it wasn't working after running across this forum.

 

  • I went to the desktop and "right-clicked" on the Synaptics driver app in the system tray.
  • Went to "Pointing Device Properties"
  • In the "Mouse Properties" under the "Device Settings" tab I went to "Settings..."
  • Went under Scrolling and then Two-Finger Scrolling.
  • Unchecked both checkboxes for vertical and horizontal scrolling. Clicked Apply
  • Re-checked them and clicked Apply.
  • After doing this I clicked Practice and it worked in synaptics tool.

I was then able to do it elsewhere in the Windows and the two finger click for a right click worked great. It shows I am running v16.2.21.4. Hope this helps some of you.

 

Been loving 8.1. I haven't tried the new Bluetooth/WLAN driver yet.

Actually, I found that the two fingers right click work if you actually 'press' on it..
I move around with my middle finger normally, then when I want to right click, I then press any place of the touch pad with my index finger. Then it works.

I think it senses two fingers, but you have to press on it to make the right click works.

Does that make sense? Hope this resolves little thing. Though I still prefer the two finger tapping rather than pressing with two fingers are sensed. :(

It seems as though the latest Synaptic drivers do not support two finger tapping for right click.

 

But as pointed out before a two finger clicking (press down hard until the trackpad clicks) is supported.

 

What a backward step! It would be nice to know if this is a Synaptics issue or one imposed by Microsoft in Windows 8.1?

tmortensenii, did it work for a 2-finger tap for you? Or did you have to actually press down on the touchpad?

Sadly no. I even tried to adjust some other settings to see if it might have the same affect as the earlier fix. No Such luck. You have to actually two finger click, not two finger tap.

This showed up in the RSS feed today:

Synaptics Touchpad Driver for Windows 8.1 (64-bit) - IdeaPad Yoga 13 - 22 Oct 2013

 

Could someone who has already updated let us know if this fixes the 2-finger tap issue? :)

Just tried the driver from the link in the previous post.  Once updated the driver date is listed as 8/20/13.  It did not fix my Two Finger right click.  I went into the setting then Synaptic Control Panel, which has a different appearance than my previous driver.  The two finger clicking is enabled by default but still doesn't function.  I tried disabling and re-enabling, but that had no effect.
