Pen precision/Pen usage

2011-10-28, 17:27 PM

Pen precision gets a little flaky.  I am using Excel and grading Excel worksheets, when I try selecting items from the Pen Toolbar the Pen precision is off 1/4" or more.  This causes errant menu selections and is irritating.  I have recalibrated many times.

 

Is there a way to switch from Pen to Pointer mode?  I use my tablet for Power Point presentations and like to "add" to the slide with emphasis Pen stokes.  Pressing the ESC key works but when I am in a tablet mode ESC is not available.

I think the OP has a windows based convertible tablet.

to the OP: This forum is for the Thinkpad slate. I do not know if thinkpad has a windows based slate, but most of the users here are on the Android slate and you likely will not find anyone who can help you here.

I had a similar problem on my TPX201 Tablet.  I simply uninstalled the original ISD Tablet drivers and installed the most current version.  Problem solved.
