Thinkpad X380 Yoga pen not working

So i got this laptop during orientation for the college i'm going to. I got excited when i saw the drawing programs on it so that i could sketch anywhere anytime without carrying a sketchbook to classes just in case i had time in between to draw. But the pen doesn't work. I have a Thinkpad Pen Pro, and while it seems charged and sometimes work, it's rare. In the 3D paint program, i can get a quick line out of the pen but not again. It's like the connection with the screen is wonky. How do i fix this?

Re: Thinkpad X380 Yoga pen not working

Same for me - we have several X380 yogas but one of them seems to have a problem with the smart pen - the lenovo pen app from windows store shows the battery as half charged but no response when touching the screen - using fingers works as intended, all BIOS and drivers up to date. Going to try another stylus to see if it works when possible.

I don't have the same problem as you, but had some other problems with stylus, and the driver from wacom(different from what lenovo offers) really helped. Maybe this can help fixing your problem as well.
