Lenovo Flex 5 & Lenovo Active Pen -Pressure sensitivity?

Q: Lenovo Flex 5 & Lenovo Active Pen -Pressure sensitivity?

So I have a Lenovo Flex 5 and a Lenovo Active Pen and the touchscreen works great with it. When I use writeIt by Lenovo, the pen has pressure sensitivity, but when I use any other software, I can't use that feature, and it is a pretty important one. Specifically, I need to use it with GIMP. I'm not sure if there's anything I can configure on that end for pressure sensitivity, but I hope there is some way I can use the pen for pressure sensitivity. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hey guys, I'm having some issues with pressure sensitivity. Does the Lenovo yoga 3 support pressure sensitivity? (I thought it would, being a touchscreen laptop)I am using Adobe Illustrator CC with a stylus - the Adonit Jot Pro. I can't seem to use the pressure sensitivity functions on illustrator. I tried downloading a few Wacom drivers, however they did not make any difference. If the Yoga 3 Pro does actually have pressure sensitivity functions, how do I enable them or which drivers do I download.. basically, how do i fix this??Thanks!

A:Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro - Pressure Sensitivity - Stylus

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
The Yoga 3 Pro has a multipoint capacitive touch screen (vs an active digitizer).
 
If you need Wacom-style functionality (pressure levels, fine-point control, etc) you'll need a suitably equipped machine, such as a number of ThinkPad Yoga models, the ThinkPad Helix, or the ThinkPad Tablet 10.
 
Hope this helps to clarify.
Regards.

I just got a new laptop last week, and i got the pen, but i am having issues with the sensitivity. I don't know if i accidently un-installed a driver for the pen, but all i have is the wacom pen desktop app for it. I've tried it in Paint 3D and the sketchpad, and still no sensitivity. I am trying to also work with Paint tool SAI, and it is not working for that either. I've tried everything to fix this, and i just can not. The pen works by itself, but i need sensitivity for me to work with my artwork properly. Please Help!

Hello.I'm an artist that just got the Flex 3 and I want to use the touchscreen for drawing on Paint Tool Sai rather than my Wacom tablet, so it's one less thing to carry around, but I'm not sure if I have to edit the screens pressure sensitivity in the settings or if I need a specific stylus for it. I've tried to edit Sai's settings but it didnt seem to work. If anyone can help me with this issue that'd be appriciated.

I have an HP Envy x360 touch laptop and I bought a HP Active Stylus from HP.com. The pen worked in the screen to draw but the pressure sensitivity has not worked. I have tried changing all the settings in Windows and looked for updated drivers, but nothing changes the pressure sensitivity. Has anyone used the Active Stylus and gotten it to work on an HP Envy x360?

A:HP active stylus pressure sensitivity not working on HP Envy...

Hi Brian, HP Envy x360 Touchscreen Notebook has Capacitive screen, that means it responds to electro discharge when we touch the screen bare handed. So the Notebook screen will not repond/bare minimum respond to Pressure Sensitive HP Active Stylus as it works on the principle of Resistive where you have to apply little pressure. So You can check with a Capacitive Stylus as most of the Smart Phones has*.   ****Click the White thumb to say thanks********Please mark Accept As Solution if it solves your problem********I am an HP Employee****

There's absolutly no mention about the pressure sensitivity level on Dell Inspiron 13 7373 + Dell Active Pen.
It's very important aspect when choosing touchscreen products with stylus.
Also, which pens do exactly work with Dell Inspiron 13 7373 and are they all have same pressure sensitivity level?

A:How much is the pressure sensitivity level of Dell Inspiron 13 7373 with its designated Dell Active Pen?

The system has a touchscreen - not a digitizer, so it's not going to be pressure sensitive at all.
If you want that feature, the only Dell that has it is the 13" XPS 2-in-one (XPS 9365).

Hey guys, first time here and I just want to inform you that I'm not a genius so please talk like you're talking to a 9years old kid..

So my problem is as the title says.. Well it started when I opened my laptop from sleep mode then it was hanging up and then it suddenly turned blue with sad face.. I didn't read the problem clearly but i remember it saying a problem about "kernel_????_????"..

I tried to hard reset my laptop cause it was taking so much time then it ended up stuck on the logo... Now I'm the one with the blue sad face...



Hope you guys can help me as soon as possible., thanks in advance..

Right, you mentioned it turned blue with a sad face, that is a Blue Screen of Death (or proper term is Kernel bugcheck) which indicates something has gone wrong.

I?m currently experiencing issues with inconsistent digitizer pen pressure/sensitivity.When painting within CS6, the strokes will suddenly and randomly grow thick and bold, despite brush settings for opposite results, and without a change in the pressure I apply to the screen. I am running CS6 on a Lenovo ThinkPad S1 Yoga, with a Windows 10 64-bit OS.Is this an issue with my Lenovo, Photoshop, Windows 10, the pen, or something else?What steps can I take to resolve this matter once and for all?

Hi
 
Maybe you can try updating some of the driver related to the Pen.
 
There is the Wintab Driver for Windows 10. Check if you need to update it.
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds041384
 
Other thing that also may help is doing some "trial and error" with other pen related software, link using Inkscape and configuring it with the pen just to try it out.

Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to adjust the pen pressure for the pen that comes with the YOGA920? The sensitivity works fine on Paint3D so I assume it would work on other drawing programs as long it is adjusted. (Similar thing happened for my Windows Surface, I had to download an app to adjust my pen sensitivity and it all worked. I'm assuming Lenovo would have a similar process) The drawing programs I use are PaintToolSAI and/or ClipStudioPaint, I have tried on both programs and there's no pen pressure.  If you can help please do, thanks in advance!

Hello everyone I was wondering if anyone knows whether the Lenovo Active Pen is also compatible with the yoga 920, or whether only the Lenovo Active Pen 2 works. Moreover, I was wondering if the Lenovo Active Pen also looses contact when writing if you hold the pen close to the nub. Thanks! for your help

A:Lenovo yoga 920 compatible with Lenovo active pen

Hi huQbbTCi,
 
Greetings.
 
Lenovo active pen 1 is also compatible with Yoga 920 as shown in the accessories search tool here PART # GX80K32884. It would be less sensitive to depth perception but with palm rejection enabled then you may not have the same issue on losing contact with it. 
 
It would also be favorable to have it tried first before any purchase specially if you have someone that have it and compare it with other active pens whichever would be comfortable and efficient to your writing style.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Here's the problem: I recently got a new computer with Windows 7 on it. I downloaded THE most recent Wacom driver for my intuous tablet but the pressure sensitity won't work. I think it has something to do with the fact that I can't save any software into the folder called Program Files which is always a folder where software goes. There's a strange folder I've never seen before called "Program Files (x86)" and some software doesn't approve of the strange characters; this is the folder that the software is installing on (unless the software rejects it). On my new computer, "Program Files" folder a read-only folder and I can't remove the read-only setting even though I'm the administrator. I get an error message saying "An error occurred in applying attributes to the file: C:\Program Files\Commo...\Alphabet.xml Access is denied."

I've saved Photoshop into a folder that I made called "Graphics Programs." So, my tablet is working just like a mouse except there is no pressure sensitivity for programs like Painter and Photoshop and probably Illustrator is the same. This is a huge problem for me. I also tried reinstalling the graphics software thinking that maybe it didn't work because it was there before I installed the tablet's driver...this didn't work.

I went to the control panel and opened the tablet settings. It allows me to test pressure sensitivity there and everything looks setup properly.

Anyways, it would be nice to fix this ... Read more

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.

A question about the deliver mouse (no wireless) with USB connection. By a minimum pressing on the sroll wheel, it activate by itself de "tact switch" to activate the Microsoft app "Auto scroll" modus.  Mostly without the knowledge from the user. As a result into (from view of the customer) a strange behaviour of his PC.  Study the Autoscroll app and you understand what I mean. Read the forums with a lot of complains about this item.Example: Help, my PC make me crazy.......... Reason: The mechanical pressure resistance on the scroll wheel is negligible. Therefore,  I open the mouse by myself andI was a little bit amazed  because HP used for the "tact switch" component (scroll wheel pressure detection) the most sensitive selection (minimum pressure needed to make contact). I replace it into another type (red color) and from now on it is a magnificent example how to use it conscious. The identification (mechanical pressure) from these components are to be  recognize on the form and the top bottom  color. Also the "click" noise on the original product is almost not audible by the customer, therefore the confusion........... My question is:   Is this a mistaken product (mouse) and is this topic well-know in the HP community ?With kind regards,Trumb

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to read this.I got a Lenovo Flex 2 15 a while ago. Over these three months I've tried to find information wether this laptop supports a stylus to draw with to begin with, and which models would those be.After searching in forums, sent pms to Lenovo support via Facebook and being utterly ignored, contacting support of styluses makers (Adonit for example) I always get the same copy pasted get X stylus for Ipad and X for *other lenovo models, like Yoga700, etc* which do not seem to list my model among them. Perhaps it is because of the year or because Lenovo Flex 2 is not being made anymore, which I noticed after getting it, sadly. So I ask once again... perhaps this time someone will know! Does the Lenovo Flex 2 15 support Wacom or any other brand styluses to draw on the screen with? If so, which is the model I should go for? Thank you again for any answer that you could provide.

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
When you press the Power to turn it on start hitting the Fn+F2 and F2 only simultaneously.
It should get you to a bios settings
   Go to the Configuration tab and look for the "Hotkey Mode" option Toggle that to Disable the hit F10 or Fn+F10 to save and Exit
 
It should switch the use of F keys to legacy
 
Hope this helps

My wife's Flex 14 stopped charging. I am thinking that battery is old and need replacement (I hope), but when I look on the Lenovo site, I do not see the battery. I tried contacting Lenovo, who argued with me that the battery is sealed (wrong), but finally send me to Emcompass parts. They looked up the serial number and was able to correctly identify the computer, but could not find the part number for the battery. They then transfer me to Geek Squad for some reason. I did see a few battery on sale at Amazon, but they appear to be greatly smaller in capacity (2200 instead of 3560 ma). Anyone know how I can order the higher capacity battery or at least locate the actual part number ? Is this normal, I never had issue getting batteries for my Dells. Paul

Does anyone have a Lenovo - Flex 4 1470? (Win10/64bit) I bought mine in July 2016 and yesterday when I signed on I got a pop-up from Lenovo telling me about a "critical" Lenovo update. I am pretty sure if was referring to BIOS update = v.0vcn.22ww / 120 MB.
I clicked for it to install and then another pop-up saying something about it (possibly) changing binaries, etc. I didn't know what that was all about and so I cancelled the downlod.
Today I phoned Lenovo and spoke to a woman who said "they" didn't recommend downloading/installing updates to BIOS unless I was having problem with this laptop.
As I asked, does anyone else have a Lenovo Flex 4.1470? If so, did you get this critical update notice and if you did, did you install it?
I am 81 years old and know nothing about these things and wonder if I should just forget about downloading the BIOS update? Or whether it MUST be downloaded for this Lenovo to operate properly.
