Have you had any luck finding a pen that works? I've been trying to figure this out, too. I contacted Lenovo support today, and they didn't seem to have any idea what I was talking about. The first guy I chatted with referred me to a basic stylus which definitely won't work for the software I'm trying to use.

Apperentley it can not have a digitizer pen (from lenovo UK)

 

 

Thank you for contacting Lenovo,

After having a look through various forums, it would appear the Yoga 700 doesn't support a digitizer pen.

Yes I am 100% sure. The Thinkpad Yoga 14 is the only model which contains digitizer pen support.
 

unbelevable !!!!

One of the Lenovo support people I talked to said the same thing, but he didn't seem particularly well-informed.

If that's true, it's definitely disappointing. I'm trying to use StaffPad (music notation software), which I already purchased, so that might turn out to be a waste of money.

Unfortunately the Yoga 700 machines do not have an active digitizer solution, which is why none of the pens you have tried work. You can likely pick up a capacitive pen (dumb stylus) that will mimic your finger.

Question for you: why do/did you believe that it came with a digitizer pen solution? I'm trying to understand if you purchased this believing that it was offered.

Hi thank you for the update, i had already came to the same conclusion.

 

I had assumed it would have being that everything else is there, a bit like my Samsung note 4.

I just assumed anyway its not but still a device very pleased with it !
