    Hello:

    I have purchased the new Yogabook c930.
    It comes with the Wacom AES pen.

    I have used the regular EMR pen for years
    and this pen is very different.

    It doesn't seem to have a dependable click and hold
    setting that I can find. It just drags stuff around most of the time.

    Does anyone know how to get this feature?
    I have tried the updated driver, but no option is available.
    The buttons only open programs, no right or left click.

    Sometimes you can press and hold and scroll up and down,
    then sometime you can't.

    Definitely it does not work in CorelDraw/Photoshop etc
    for hold and drag an object to resize, etc.

    Thanks

    What do you think, guys? Is this a Windows problem? Should I direct our friend here to my crazy scorched earth 1703 build instructions?

    The last version of Windows 10 where the stylus worked in the traditional (correct) manner was build 1703.

    I made a post over on Reddit describing step by step how to put 1703 on your system and how to lock down Windows so that automatic updates don't overwrite it.

    I've been using that build on all my computers for a year now, and they all work perfectly and my pen doesn't stink. The downside is that you lose some Microsoft features which come bundled in with their automatic update system, including the Microsoft store and a few other bits of useless nonsense.

    If that sounds like something you're willing to try, then I can personally recommend it. A year running and no disasters so far.

    Thanks for the info ComicGuy.!
    I was about to return the computer.
    This my first time with an AES pen,
    always had EMR in Wacom products.

    Before starting all over again.
    I tried the Registry hack first.
    I was concerned about Lenovo's custom eInk drivers
    for the 2nd screen on the c930 Yogabook to reload
    whole OS.

    So far it works many times better than before.
    I have pressure sensitivity and the dragging/scrolling
    has stopped so far.

    Still wish the buttons could have right or left click option.

    Good to hear.

    I wonder if Radialmenu might allow for programming the buttons? It's abandonware, a little buggy, but free and I use it to achieve the otherwise impossible on my Samsung portable, (which doesn't allow Wacom drivers but sorely needs them. Radialmenu is the bridge between, making the Notebook 9 Pro a viable device. I use it to achieve a hover right-click function).
