Re: Wacom Intuos 4 pen doesn't work on Helix

Just tried it again with my stylus from the Lenovo x201t and the stylus from the toshiba portege m400. The pen always worked, just the eraser didn't seem to but it works now.

What's DOS?

Re: Wacom Intuos 4 pen doesn't work on Helix

FYI, the Wacom Penabled Digitizer system is not compatible with Intuos, Cintiq, and Bamboo Tablet pens.


Any other Wacom Penabled Tablet PC Pen will work (as mentioned, Series 7 slate, Asus EP121, Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2, Lenovo X61 - X230T series, Fujitsu T900 series, Motion F5t, Wacom Bamboo Feel pens to name just a few).


Additionally the Wacom Pen Display Pens will work (eg DTU- series).


These pens come in different shapes, sizes and button configurations, but the pen must match up with the digitizer system that is built into the tablet and many people aren't aware that Wacom have different systems.


The Penabled system is not as advanced as the Intuos or Cintiq unfortunately (fewer pressure degrees, no tilt angles etc), but still very impressive and useful.
