Can I use my X1 Yoga's touch/pen to control an external display (similar to Wacom tab)?

2017-01-09, 7:48 AM

Hello all,


If I connect my X1 Yoga to an external monitor, can I either make the external monitor mirror the built-in monitor and keep the built-in monitor's touch capabilities, or alternatively only display on the external but still use the touch abilities of the built-in monitor to control things as if it were a tablet?  


Basically, I'm interested in knowing if it's possible to use my touch screen and the fancy pen even if I'm working on something on an external display.  Any tips about the best way to do this, and/or the differences between HDMI/Display Port/Dock etc. are welcome.
