Yoga S1 Digitizer Pen Question

2014-07-15, 14:51 PM

I just got a Yoga S1 with the Digitizer Pen.  Is the pen supposed to behave similar to a standard touch?  In otherwords, can I use it instead of my finger when touching the screen?  So far it doesn't seem to have any affect on the windows start screen.  I know the pen works because I found an app that translates the writing to text (can't remember the app name, still learning what came on the computer).  I'm just trying to learn the capabilities and limitations of the pen.

 

Thanks in advance

The digitiser pen works like a simple finger touch. When you click on the button on the pen, does it open a dialogue box?

The pen works in OneNote, but clicking the button does not open a dialog window.  I tried clicking around within various apps and the windows 8 start screen using it like a finger touch, but it was spotty at best. What is the expected behavior?

i recorded the above video to show you the basic behaviour under both finger touch and pen digitiser. Compare this to your laptop, and see if it is the same.

Also, it would helpful to do a video recording of what you are getting, then upload it to say flickr or something. This will allow us to troubleshoot more easily.

I get the same behavior, so I guess it's just not knowing the limitations of the pen (e.g. not being able to scroll the Start screen). Do you know of any real documentation on the digitizer pen? The documentation that came with the laptop is pretty lacking in that category.

Thanks again for your help.

I have never seen any real documentation regarding the Wacom pen.
