Yoga 710: Is there a software/stylus combination to enable pressure sensitivity with the stylus?

2016-07-03, 22:02 PM

Apparently, the Yoga 710 has no active digitizer and is a capacitive touch screen. I've read that means that one cannot get pressure sensitivity out of a stylus. 

 

Is there software or a software/stylus combination that will enable the use of a stylus made for use with active digitizers and give the stylus pressure sensitivity on the Yoga 710?

I wonder if you found an answer and you can update us with it.

 

I found Adonit Jot but doesn't seem to be right either (no one is testing properly).

I asked the people at Adonit, and they said the Jot would not work with pressure sensitivity. We ended up returning the Lenovo and buying a Surface Book, which has an active digitizer.

That's too bad but good for you. I actually bought it hoping for a solution in the next couple of years that depends solely on the pen. I figured I was OK without it for years. The price doesn't justify paying double or more for the pen and a better screen.

Hi, thought I'd resurface this.

 

I've got a 710-14IKB and am looking for a pressure sensitive stylus. I'm aware of the following:

 

  1. The 710-14IKB has a capacitive touch screen
  2. The 710-14IKB does not have a digitiser
    1. ...this means Pens that are designed for things like the Surface and Yoga Miix's won't work. Pressure is determined by digitiser hence the incompatibility with machines without one..!
  3. Bluetooth active pens are on the market that are pressure sensitive. The pressure is "measured" by the pen itself and fed back to the laptop through bluetooth

Hi, thought I'd bump this.

 

I've got a 710-14IKB and am looking for a pressure sensitive stylus. I'm aware of the following:

 

  • The 710-14IKB has a capacitive touch screen
  • The 710-14IKB does not have a digitiser
    1. ...this means pens / styluses that are designed for things like the MS Surface and Yoga Miix's won't work. Pressure is determined by digitiser hence the incompatibility with machines without one..!
  • Bluetooth active pens are on the market that are pressure sensitive. The pressure is "measured" by the pen itself and fed back to the laptop through bluetooth. Other features like "palm touch disabling" can also be "calculated by the pen and communicated to the laptop
    • ...however, I know of only one such pen that could work with Windows, the Adonit Pixel

What I'm after is:

 

  • Is my understanding above correct?
  • Has anyone tried an Adonit Pixel or perhaps some other pressure sensitive bluetooth pen on a Yoga 710 (or other w/o a digitiser)?
  • If so, what are your experiences?
    • What's the feel, lag and compatibility like with note taking and drawing?
    • What apps do you use?

Much appreciated!

Did anyone test the Adonit pixel for use on the Lenovo Yoga 900 series?
