ThinkPad X1 Yoga - TrackPoint Sensitivity

2016-09-27, 23:54 PM

I've owned ThinkPad laptops for the past 20 years.  My most recent purchase was a ThinkPad X1 Yoga running Windows 10.  My prior version was a ThinkPad Edge 520 with Windows 7.

 

What I've noticed is that the "sensitivity" option is no longer available for the TrackPoint mouse.  I've attached a screenshot of the old Ultranav utility which allowed for the sensitivity to be adjusted from Light to Heavy touch.  On the new version, there is only the option to adjust the speed from Slow to Fast (which was also available on the prior version).

 

I have no idea what the sensitivity is set by default, but it's definitely not a Light touch.  This is annoying especially if you have to scroll through log pages (web page or documents).  This is a real annoyance because it is so much more diffcult to use the TrackPoint, so much so, I'm debating whether to buy a mouse, which I haven't used in over 20 years.

 

Anyway we could get UltraNav to add that functionality in soon???

Thanks for posting this. I have this issue with the X1 gen 5 carbon and I think you've pinpointed the cause - no sensitivity adjustment option. Here's a related topic: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-5th-gen-thinkpad-trackpoint/m-p/3779395#M79106

 

Might just have to try putting a ticket in about it.

So I've had my X1C 5th gen for about 8 months and just replaced the original trackpoint with a fresh one (part number 4XH0L55146). The original was gray and cleaning didn't brighten it up. And I'm happy to say that the new one is much more sensitive! In fact, I would venture to say that it is sensitive enough! 

 

I knew these are consumables, but perhaps we should think of them as more consumable than just replace it when it looks gross - replace it when it feels sluggish.
