yoga book turn off touch for pen input

2017-02-22, 7:53 AM

hi

 

is it possible to turn off touch screen input by fingers when using the pen ?  i tried the windows option "ignore touch input when i'm using my pen" this however has no effect.

You can turn off finger touch input in the Device Manager under HID devices by disabling the device - but that's not something you'd want to do on a frequent basis. This shouldn't affect input using the Anypen because that's a different device. (It might be possible to create a script that would deal with it and a desktop shortcut to run the script but that's beyond my skills.)

 

There has been some disatisfaction expressed elsewhere in this forum about the lack of palm recognition. It may be that, if and when Lenovo address that, it would do enough for what you want.

 

I think the reason "ignore touch input when i'm using my pen" doesn't work might be because it was built for Surface devices and only works with pens that use similar technology.

thanks for the reply. I tried switching of the HID device in the device manager but without much success.  If touch is disabled also the pen stops working. which is indeed a pain as palm recognition does not really work if there is any.

Oh, sorry about that. I didn't expect the two to be linked.

Just a thought:

When you disabled touch did you test it with an app that you know the pen works with? I only mention it because I find the pen doesn't work with the screen on Sketchpad at all, which, because it loads quickly, I might have used if I were testing something like that - and I would have come to the wrong conclusion. Using One Note to check it would be better.

I've tried it on my Yoga Book now and as you say it didn't work. Got nothing else to suggest I'm afraid.
