Lenovo Yoga Book - some questions

Q: Lenovo Yoga Book - some questions

Hi everybody, ever since a friend showed me the Lenovo Yoga Book online I've been in love with the device. I'm a big note taker and writer, and I think this could be perfect for me. However, I live abroad in a country where they don't sell the Lenovo Yoga Book. I'm soon going for a short visit to the Netherlands where I can finally see (and most likely buy) it, but I have a couple of questions that I can't seem to figure out from searching online (and I will not have enough time in the Netherlands to keep going to the shop ). I am interested in buying the Android version. First of all, because I am buying it as a tablet and not a laptop; second because of the 100 euros price difference (yes, welcome to Europe...) and third because of the ability to take notes in tablet mode with the screen off. However, I struggle to find out how to digitalize handwriting notes and I read contradicting statements on this. From handwriting to textAs I understood, you can't digitalize (meaning change handwriting into text) with the app that Lenovo installed (Note Saver). Is that correct? If that is the case, I am looking for a programme that can do this. Does it exist for Android? I've been looking into OneNote. Is it possible to write using OneNote and then convert the handwriting to text? Or do you know of any other apps? Evernote for example? Furthermore, when using those apps (especially OneNote), can you convert it do a .doc document? Taking notesAnother thing in terms of taking notes: Isn't it hard if you, when you don't use paper, keep track of where you have been writing? I saw people make amazing drawings, exactly knowing where to put the pen, but it seems rather difficult to me. Anybody had a problem with this? (especially when you fold the tablet and only use the writing side, without the screen). Oh and if you take notes without the screen, is it only possible to do it in Note Saver? MouseI'm also wondering if you can connect it to a bluetooth mouse (I understood the scroll pad isn't that great). I think that's it for now, thank you in advance!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Is the android version suitable for flipbook style animation (is there an app with something similar to paint.net where you can set the transparency of layers)? Also can the images be easicly exported as png files? I already have a microUSB to USB 2.0 adapter for actual file transfers. Also what file format are notes drawn on the drawing surface saved as?  Thank you!

I've been having a couple issues with my pen in Adobe Animate CC and several other apps. Basically I was getting a common issue where when I go to draw something the cursor is delayed and after a short moment it jumps back to the pen leaving a straight line behind it. The fix for this would usually be to disable flicks and the press and hold feature. On my Yoga book however when I would do that the pen would only leave a dot on the screen when I went to draw, and I wouldnt be able to move it from that spot until i went back into the halo keyboard and moved/clicked the mouse. I almost forgot to mention that I've installed MULTIPLE different versions of the wacom feel drivers however none of them fix it. Actually the newest wacom feel drivers make it so I cant use my pen AT ALL and it just gets stuck in the top left corner of my screen. So what I've done is installed some older drivers but all that did was fix my pressure sensitivity issue. Now the issue I'm having is when I go to draw something it just drags the canvas. I've tried many different things, nothing works. If no one knows how to fix this I was thinking of buying wacoms "Bamboo Ink Smart Stylus". Could that possibly fix it? The apps I've tried on the yoga book that work are Sketchbook pro and Clip Studio Paint. The ones that don't work are Adobe Animate CC, Macromedia flash 8, and the free flash alternative vectorian giotto.

So about a month ago I woke up one morning and went to use my yoga and discovered the halo keyboard was cracked and half it was unusable. I?ve never dropped or anything and it?s always been in a case not really sure what happened to it but the several times I?ve called the highly unhelpful customer service people they keep insisting that I dropped and refuse to give me an estimate of how long it would take to get it looked at if I sent it off or how much it cost and this is my tablet that I used to use everyday for my school work and now I?m managing with a kindle fire, but I?d like my yoga book back. The most that customer service has ever told me about sending in too is that I have to sent it to Kentucky, no instructions beyond that and absolutely no address ever given and it?s impossible to find on the website. I wanted to know if anyone else had this problem or at least even knows how to send it in for repairs. I?ve also only had it since November.

Hey, I just got my Lenovo Yoga Book with Windows 10 today, brand new. When I first booted the machine up there was no new user startup, it automatically logged me in to the "Administrator" account. The desktop has some generic wallpaper with bright red Chinese text one it, with programs on the desktop like WoaProc.exe, rework.cmd, Server_RunInPad.exe, shutdown.cmd, and TelephonyTool_Eng_V1.1.exe. There is also another user account, "WWTE." Upon researching this myself it seems that I have a test unit that Lenovo forgot to wipe. Is it okay for me to continue using? Should I just use it as is? Do I wipe the unit and reinstall Windows (btw, the unit itself has no recovery drive). Should I return it for a new unit? This is the first time something like this has happened to me, so any help would be appreciated.  Thanks, Jon

I just bought the yoga book mostly for games and YouTube.  One of the main games I got it for was Pokemon go.  When I got it, the game ran fine. After updating it to Android 7.1.1 the game will not load. It crashes and says the game has stopped working. From what I'm reading online it has to deal with the security patch from August 2017. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this without a factory reset?

I have had the problem of not being able to use pressure sensitivity with  some art programs that i've downloaded onto this pc, so i downloaded the wacom feel driver. Now i  can not use any programs except the one art program that i wanted ti use, due to the cursor beign in the top left side corner. I have tried to fix this by deleting and dowloading the wacom driver again. I hope i'm not the only one with this problem, and that someone can fix it.Thanks for the replies in advance !

So, my husband bought me a Lenovo Yoga Book last year for Christmas. I like it. I think it's cool to be able to draw on the paper (which is what I do traditionally) and have it show up digitized on the screen. I was able to do a couple of cool projects sketches on it, but I haven't used it to it's full potential I believe, so I put it down for a while. Then, I started to research different drawing apps, seeing all the amazing artwork that people were creating in these different apps and stuff, and it got me excited about going back to drawing on my Yoga Book. So, I went to try to draw in ArtRage, and when I would try to draw on the Wacom tablet with my pen, nothing would show up. However, when I would draw on the screen with my finger, everything showed just fine. I tried to update it several times, I tried starting it over, I tried using a different drawing app; NOTHING. The only time the pen would work on the Wacom Tablet is in Notesaver. Even if I had ArtRage open, anything that I try to write on the tablet will only come up in Notesaver. I wasn't trying to just factory reset it right off so I called technical support to see if there was anything that they would be able to do to fix it without me having to factory reset it.So, I called tech support and they told me that I would have to pay a fee of $40 to be escalated to their software support. So I paid the $40, and within 3 MINUTES  of speaking to me, the tech tells me to just factory reset it. I was LIVID. Like, th... Read more

A:Lenovo Yoga 900 Few Questions

Hi Hisayuki , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Higher resolution is not a significant threat to power as compared to lower resolution on normal usage as full LCD panel is still lit . Higher pixelated displays type needs higher power (HD vs. FHD vs. QHD). In gaming setting higher video setting would requuire more power to be used by the video card . Dimming the brightness would lessen power draw. 
 
About the browsers , features offered by Edge would lead most test and others may claim otherwise but may also depend fairly on the user and the websites visited. Limiting number of open browsers sure would lessen processes therefore less power consumption. 
 
Adjusting to lower resolution manually to what suits your vision can help as other simply use applications to automatically do it . 
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

I've purchased (hopefully they'll send me the right one) a used Thinkpad Yoga 15 on eBay. I was informed that it was one that does not include the Nvidia 840m card. I'm not sure how often I'm planning on gaming with it, but I'd like the option if it was cheap. I got the laptop itself for about $210 total and saw an NVIDIA 840m chip for $10-$20 on eBay. Would it be possible to install? I'm sure I've read that it's not possible to change it if it comes with it installed because it is soldered on. If it IS possible to install (as I believe there should be an empty spot for it if it doesn't come with it), would it be possible to install a slightly more powerful chip?  Another question is could I install an mSATA 256 GB SSD into the available mSATA slot without any issue and use it as a second storage space?

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

I've looked at the problems concerning the pen on the forums here and none of them seem to pertain to my problem specifically so I figured I would go ahead and ask. I have a Lenovo Yoga Book (the 64GB version). I reinstalled Windows 10 because it was locked out due to bitlocker, the Halo Keyboard wouldn't switch to the sketch pad mode so I reinstalled the drivers for that per the official instructions by Lenovo, and now the pen only interacts with the very top left hand corner of the screen no matter where I use the pen. I'd really like to start drawing again!Thanks in advance for any help I might receive!
