So out of the box, my Yoga 920 was missing the batteries and tips for the Active Pen 2 but I got an empty pen.  So Lenovo ships me a new pen but this one is a Lenovo Active Pen although it does list 4096 levels of pressure.  What's the difference between the pens and is the original compatible with the Yoga 920?I have it still in the box... Thanks.

I got a problem with the Active Pen 2 and the touchsreen of my Yoga 720-13Ikb. I changed the battery of my old Active Pen 2 because it was low. After that i reconnected it with my Laptop, but since then I can't write anything on my screen. The Active Pen itself works, because if I press the button, OneNote appears. The touchsreen itself also works, because I can write with my fingers on it. So i thought it might be a problem with the pen, but when I ordered a new one and tested it, the results were the same. The connection worked, the buttons too but the interaction with the Touchscreen wasn't still working. I have no clue what the problem could be, because both things work and are in touch but it won't let me write anything. Has anybody an idea?

Nachdem ich die Batterie des ActivePen2 ersetzt habe (da diese kein Energie mehr hatte), funktionierte einfach die Spitze nicht mehr. Die Verbindung zum Laptop steht und auch wenn ich auf den oberen Button drücke geht das OneNote Fenster auf, jedoch kann ich nichts mehr schreiben. Auch auf dem Desktop reagiert die Spitze nicht. Dieses Problem hatte ich gestern noch nicht als die Batterie noch ein bisschen Restenergie hatte, konnte ich noch wie gewohnt auf dem Bildschirm schreiben. Weiss jemand wo das Problem liegen könnte? Brauche dringenst die Funktion wieder, da der Stift sonst unnütz ist.

Hello, I'd like to know if the Yoga 520 offers an active digitizer making the use of an active pen possible. Not a passive/capacitive one, but an ACTIVE one. I've recently bought a notebook which said it had support for active pens and ended up with a touchscreen instead which offers capacitive pen support only. I aim to use Staffpad with it so if I could be informed of it's compatibility with the app that'd be better.

So recently I bought the Lenovo Active Pen (GX80K32882) off of Amazon, and it's been working fine. I decided to switch from the included pen because it was larger and gave more of a natural feeling. However, today when I pulled out the built-in pen, it didn't work. I've tried restarting and updating drivers to no avail. I'm not sure if it's because the charging pins were somehow bent and it's now out of battery, or because of some other hardware/software issue. Has anyone else had this issue and found a fix? Thanks!

I purchased a Lenovo yoga 720 earlier this year, however the active pen 2 has never turned on using the button at the top (no light has come on and neither of the buttons towards the nib provide any function), I can use the pen to point and on contact it will draw, however the quality seems poor. If I remove the battery then it will not draw or write on contact, I have tried two newly purchased batteries without any success. I contacted the UK customer service as that is where I had purchased it (with a worldwide warranty), however as I am now living in Cambodia they could only offer solutions of reinstalling drivers or purchasing a new pen locally. I tried taking it to a local Lenovo authorised service centre, whilst they were keen to try and help they either lacked the knowhow or the parts to repair it and were not authorised to request a replacement. Are there any other options available to me here? I'm not really satisfied with the service I've been receiving. I don't really want to pay a further $60 for a replacement for something which should have been working upon receiving it. Might the Thai or Vietnamese customer service be able to provide assistance with this? I appreciate I should have got onto it when I was back in the UK, however I had other priorities and it didn't get done.

So I recently purchased a Yoga 920 I am following the instructions to configure my pen.  I have connected it to my computer's bluetooth.    However the "Pen & Windows Ink" settings only allow me to configure the top button on my pen.  Not the two barrell buttons. The instructions says I need either "Lenovo Pen Settings App"  or "Wacom Pen App"  to configure the two barrell buttons.  It doesn't seem to be preinstalled on computer, and I cannot find where to download them.   The instructions say to go to  http://www.lenovo.com/support,  look up my computer, and download the app from the "Drivers and Software" section.  But none of the apps are listed there for the Yoga 920.    So, what am I supposed to do?  Where can I get these apps? These are the instructions I'm looking at btw: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/options/lenovo_pen_button_config_guide.pdf https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/options/lenovo_active_pen2_qsg_v2.0_201705.pdf And even this guide here says I need the Wacom Pen App: https://gtrusted.com/how-to-set-up-the-lenovo-active-pen-2-on-the-lenova-yoga-920-2-in-1-pc But,  How do I get it?? Thanks in advance  Edit: So I found the Wacom Pen App at the microsoft store and tried to insall it.  (And I already have Wintab (64 bit) installed.)  But when I try to run the app, it says "This app requires the Wacom Pen...

Hey Guys I'm rather confused about the pen support for the new Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 15. I've read quite a bit about it and find the information quite inconsistent. Some say it does support active pen some say it will in april and some say it doesn't. What I would like to know:A.) What kind of pen technology does the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 15 support atm?B.) Are there any changes in sight? / When? / What changes?C.) Can I write on it while resting my hand on the screen aka has it palm rejection?D.) How good is it for note taking? Can it keep up with my writing speed? Links to videos where I can actually see it being used / tested would be greatly appreciated.

A:Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 15 Active Pen

From what I know there isn't too much information out so far. But here's what I found out. First off, the current Thinkpad Yoga 14 and 15 don't support pen digitizers at all, and will not in the future.Secondly, the Toshiba Encore 2 Write apparently uses the same technology. See this thread. Here's what I know:- It's called Wacom "Active ES" as in Active Electro Static.- It's battery powered. Unlike Wacom's older technology, you need a battery in the pen.- Palm rejection is more of a driver thing and not the technology. So it works, basically.- People say it feels "different", not sure if that means better or worse.- Precision is apparently very good, perhaps even better than the older tech without battery.- Pen lag (speed) doesn't seem to be an issue. Might even be better than the older technology. Other than that I personally couldn't find any information about whatever will be built into the Thinkpad Yoga 14 and 15 Only that they call it "Active Pen" and that it will be out in April. Also that the displays will support something called "anypen" which basically means you can use any pen-shaped metal object to write on the display. But that isn't really of any interest to me because I want pressure sensitivity.

UNIT SPECS: -i5, 8th gen U-gtx 1050 GPU-8 GB RAM-1080p IPS display-256 GB of storage-90 Watt AC Adapter I know that this has another thread, but it'd marked as "solved", whereas the issue has not been solved at all.  So, the basics of the issue: CPU runs fine during normal use and when stress testing on XTU, but then immediately downclocks itself to between .4 and .8 Ghz when the NVidia 1050 is active.  During games or benchmarking (used UnEngine Valley), this results in a drop to 10-25 fps on average.  CPU power drops by about 75% and bottlenecks the GPU so that it can only perform around 30-50%.If you exit out of the app's window, the GPU will not be in use and the CPU will gradually clock itself back up to normal levels.Another user pointed out a workaround where you can disable Intel Thermal Framework to reduce the issue.  The problem is that ITF exists for a reason and disabling it increases heat, reduces battery life, and can damage your PC.  Theoretically it could also void warranty if any damage resulted from disabling the feature.No thermal throttling is occurring, which makes it odd that ITF would be strangling the processor.  Even if that were an issue, it could just lower the CPU to its base clock (not below) and temps would be fine. This probably some issue caused by acombination of Lenovo's BIOS interacting with ITF, but it could also be hardware related.   The takeaway is that you can't use the device'...
