ThinkPad Yoga doesn't support press-to-select?

2013-12-03, 1:48 AM

I just bought a ThinkPad Yoga and it seems like Lenovo, in their infinite wisdom, took out "press-to-select" (the ability to push in on the TrackPoint to do a left-click). Here is what Control Panel --> Mouse shows me. Why is there no longer an "UltraNav" tab with a settings button that lets me enable press-to-select?

 

This should be standard functionality. It was on my old T420, it's on the X1 Carbon, and so it should be on my ThinkPad Yoga. This is a high-end machine. I bought it specifically FOR the TrackPoint, and they shouldn't be gimping the TrackPoint like this.

Hi,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

Please check what you find under “Mice and other pointing devices” in control panel -> device manager.

 

Probably, you haven’t installed the Synaptics ultranav driver in your system. Go to Lenovo Support page, enter MTM number in quick patth and find the synaptics driver under mouse and keyboard category. If you find any difficulties, please share the MTM number of your device and the operating system you are using so that i can assist you.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Best regards,

Mithun.

mithunr, you can clearly see from my screenshot that I DO have the drivers installed. I already have installed the driver 17.0.12.52 from this link: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS034647

 

I am running Windows 8.1 and that 17.0.12.52 UltraNav driver. 

 

I suspect that it is simply like Jin Li said and that they have stripped this functionality out of the ThinkPad Yoga, even though that makes no sense from a practicality perspective.
