Change pressure sensitivity of the stylus?

2014-10-03, 20:00 PM

So my stylus sucks. I can be holding my stylus off of the screen about 3 cm from the screen and it will write on the screen. This makes actually writing on the screen nearly impossible as my handwriting is completely illegible from this issue. I have replaced my stylus multiple times and that never fixed it. Then a few weeks ago I was messing with the settings and found that I was able to adjust the pressure that it took to make the pen write. And my problem was fixed. I noticed the other day that the stylus had reverted to the old ways and so I went in search of the settings for the pen, and I can no longer find the settings menu where I was able to change the pressure sensitivity. This menu had a picture of the pen and also gave you eraser options (even though the stylus doesn't have an eraser) and calibration options. I have searched high and low for this menu and I have taken it to the lenovo people (my school has a special relationship with lenovo so we have like a mini computer fix it place in the school where we take the computers when we have issues which unfortuantely happens a lot) and they have not been able to find the menu again either. Does anyone happen to know how to adjust this setting or know a driver I can download or some way I can make my pen usable again? 


I have the Lenovo Helix. I am completely up to date on software and this problem has been occuring since when I had windows 8. Currently running 8.1.

Good day and welcome to the community.


Sorry you're having difficiulties.

It would be helpful to know which X series tablet laptop you're using, along with which OS. That may well help fellow community members assist you.
