Thinkpad Yoga and UP710E stylus, how do you make them work together?

2014-09-19, 7:29 AM

So my work just got me a Thinkpad Yoga as per my request

I have confirmed that in the Device Manager I do see: "HID-compliant touch screen"

 

I have also gone out on my own and purchased the UP710E wacom stylus, as suggested at various points on this board and on other sites, as something that should work with the Yoga

 

I've also purchased Manga Studios as an art program that is supported on this device (it seems to run fine) and with the pen.

 

I turned on Manga Studios (and MSPaint for good measure), pressed pen to screen and... nothing.  Eraser to screen.. nothing.  Mouse?  Works fine.  Stylus that everything and everyone indicated should work?  Nope.

 

So.... what am I missing?  Is there a driver I should be looking at?  Everything should be up to date.. some in-between program I need to install?  Try this when the wind is blowing south by southwest?

 

Help please?

I believe that you could use a capacitative stylus, which mimics a finger, with your system, but to use a true digitizer pen like you describe, the machine also needs to be equipped with the appropriate panel. These are often described as "Pen and Touch", or similar. "Multitouch", in my experience is used to describe multiple finger touch capability for the gesture features of Win8x.

 

Hope this helps to clarify.

Regards.

Good day and welcome to the community.

 

Sorry you're having difficulties.

If you could post the 10 character machine type-model number from the sticker on the bottom of your TP Yoga, that may help. The same sticker lists your serial number, but please don't post that.

 

Regards.

Thanks.

 

Here's how the support site describes your MTM:

i5-4300U(2.9GHz), 4GB RAM, 500GB 5400rpm HD, 12.5in 1366x768 LCD, Intel HD Graphics,

Wireless Option, Bluetooth, UltraNav, Secure Chip, 8c Li-Poly, Win8.1 Pro 64

 

I'll defer to others who might know definitively, but it's my understanding that the 1366x768 LCDs are not Wacom digitizer-equipped, whereas the FHD panels are. That would be one possibility for what you're seeing.

 

Regards.

Thank you for the reply.. i don't know about the support site of this system, I wasn't checking that when picking out a computer.  I do see many places saying the yoga can do this with this stylus, and I see the thing in the device manager that supposedly says this system can do this.  It's the only reason I got this otherwise inferior laptop.  So is this key feature not available (and I need to see if I can still return it and warn my co-workers not to get it) or is there something I'm not correctly enabling?  Is there a different but decent stylus that would work?

Thanks Sarbin.  

 

Beyond disappointing to say the least, just as I was starting to like Lenovo, but thank you for the clear answer.  Those two pieces are not visible in the device manager. I'll see if it's too late to return this and trade it in for something useful, if not I'll ride out the year until we change systems again. If not I'll try one of the giant rubber styluses, though in the past they've been less than useless for art.  Urgh.  Maybe this thread will at least help someone else avoid this mistake, since there is no clear info on this anywhere else.
