Yoga Book - Keyboard issues

2016-11-16, 13:39 PM

Hi all,

so I have my Yoga Book - Windows version - for several days now. I am very happy with this device however there is one issue with the keyboard I just do not know how to solve - except for connecting external keyboard.

In general use its fine but it does not cooperate with games - you can not use key combinations (wd;wa,sa;sd or any other for that mater) to move. As soon as you press "D" while holding "W" the keyboard stops sending continuous imput data. You can hold "W" and tap "D" to move right strait right (not forward/right) but it is a single imput... you can not hold "D" for continuous imput while holding "W" at the same time as in normal keyboards.

This seams very strange to me as you in fact CAN hold several key for continuous imput just not the character keys. For example: shift+W (2 keys) will give you continuous imput of capital "W" and crtl+alt+v (3 keys) will give you continuous imput of "@" sign. Clearly the technology supports multiple simultaneous "key" press, it just does not behave like regular keyboard.

I believe that this is an issue of halo keyboard's drivers but I might be wrong. Anyone have any glue how to solve this?

Not at the moment. It's not a machine designed for gaming with any keyboard input, so I have doubts Lenovo will ever spend time to add this feature for the keyboard.

I realise that gaming on this device is not intended and I certainly do not plan to play games on it - if I did, I would already returned the device - but sill Minecraft or Terraria on the go would be nice.
I do not think it is unreasonable; you can already use 3 (or even 4!) keys at the same time and in this device's case the "keys" are basically coordinates on one touch surface so why should one set of coordinates work fine and another would not.
If this is indeed issue of drivers (and not some hidden setting or on/off switch) the function is already there, expanding it should not be that difficult.

Hey,

so after few more test I found out that the same issue applies to arrow keys as well - meaning no diagonal navigation in file explorer, table documents or navigation services (google maps). So I am probably returning my Yoga Book, but just to be sure that this is not an issue of my device, could anyone with Yoga Book test this issue?

I have been wondering the same - I've had the device for several weeks and love it! But it would be perfect if I could play my low end racing game, or some others I enjoy (which really run unexpectedly well on it) without having to connect a BT keyboard.

 

I've updated to the latest drivers, and at least now the touchpad right-button areas have been fixed and there are more options for haptic feedback, but sadly this issue has not been addressed.

I wouldn't call it a "problem", simply because the Halo Keyboard is not designed for this purpose.
Regards ?

Hello, I also just bought a new Yoga Book but it has the QWERTZ keyboard :(

Did you find a way to change the layout to QWERTY?

 

I'm running Win10 Pro.

 

Thanks a lot, Michele

@Faris

Well...  Seems like we have different opinions on this. I think it's a shame. These are very basic functions. But seems I have to deal with it. Unfortunately.

 

@Michele

I don't know exactly but I think it's impossible to change it. For me it's absolutely fine, because I'm from Germany. I just mentioned it, in case there are some important differences regarding the drivers.

Thanks a lot. For me it is an issue and I am quite disappointed that the keyboard layout can't be changed. However, I appreciate your feedback, hopefully I will be able to see a clear statement from Lenovo about this
