One of my main usage in my computer (and the main reason I bought this model 2 years ago) is taking notes in lectures using onenote. The problem is that often the ink disappear or spread all over the document. This is a very frustration problem because I can't use the computer for the main reason I bought it. I could not find any pattern in the appearance of the malfunction or any way to predict it. I had search for a solution for a long time over the internet and have yet to find any reason or a way to fix this. I am using office 365 university and windows 8.1 pro.
I will be very happy if there is a way to solve it.
(BTW, I also tried MS support and it is a terrible one)
Thanking you in advanced,

It was only an assumption, I don't really know what's going on with your X220t. Mine is running Window7, but you might open Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Pen and Touch. Normally you should see a tab named Touch, and a checkbox “Use a finger as a pointing device” (or something like that). Uncheck it. This will turn the touch feature off.
I’m not sure if this will change anything. It's more likely a driver issue.
Could you please post a screen shot of "the ink spreading all over the document" ?

I wonder why do you assume the problem is with the touch drivers. The Problem does not happen in real time (the ink can "jump" long after I wrote it.). I had an experiment and tried to disable the automatic switch between touch/mouse/pen via onenote, I still encountered the problem.
Anyway, I will try to disable the touch and see (though Im having no hopes for that).
Do you happen to use onenote also? I do not know if the problem is my machine or with onenote.
I exported a page with the problem to PDF. There are some parts when there are writings on top of each others but I guess that will be hard to spot if you don't know the language :-). But there are sections that you can see clearly the problem.

I enlarged your Pdf to 300% and went carefully through it, but didn’t see any problem, except here and there a word covering another one (but I don’t know if you meant it or not).
As long as I know, the X220t has not been designed for Windows 8, and particularly the screen. Numerous forums report problems with the touch feature, digitizer, hotkey feature integration, power management, etc., even on the X230t. That's why I said that it might be a driver issue.
Why not downgrade to Windows 7? If your main purpose in using the X220t is taking notes, do you really need Windows 8? OneNote 2010 works fine on my X220t running Windows 7, and I guess oneNote 365 would do as well.

MS Word also allows you to "ink". This gives you a way to test if OneNote is your problem. Try inking in MS Word and see if the problem persists. If so, then the problem is not One Note. Alternatively if you're worried that its some MS code common to both applications that could be the cause of your problem, then download something like Evernote and test again.
I hope that helps
