    Oh damn, i just read through the posts again and I didn't realise this was a profile-specific problem, as I saw someone else commenting about having this issue with their Surface Pro 3 on the CHOMP Toolbar. At some point I will play around with my own touch profile, but I don't know how far I'll get in finding what can trigger it, and what the other variables are for. I presume theres some way in a script that you can fix this though?

    Is it a normal behavior when I'm using the pen and the hand holding the pen is touching the screen, these docks ignore any other touchinput?

    Edit: Found the answer myself. The script is of course just listening to the touch x/y-values specified in the profile. I can make it work to listen to the 2nd touch but not at the same time. Now someone with enough brain needs to modify the script to make it work with 2 or more touch-inputs :p

    At least on my device, it works with two or more touch inputs, i'm pretty sure it has to do with some of the unknown variables of the touch profile. I know some people have done a lot of work to increase compatibility of various tablets, and I would love to see their input and understand what they're doing :3

    Hey Takanu. I wanted to try setting up a touch profile for my x230t but it appears that the scripts you put up on your dropbox are gone. I was wondering how I could get a hold of those or if you could reup them.

    Thanks a ton for all the work you have done with this btw, I am currently testing between a Surface 3 and a x230t for my ativ tab 7 replacement and I gotta say, the CHOMP toolbar is working great on the Surface.

    Don't waste your time. User incrediclint and I did tons of work in getting a touch profile working for his radial menu. We found out that on the x230t all, I mean ALL, touch events get blocked once the pen is near the screen. That makes it impossible to make pen+touch possible. Sorry for raining on your parade.

    Really? Oh man thats a pretty big bummer. Drawing on this thing is great but the touch toolbar seems pretty crucial to sketching on the go. Think I might be siding with the Surface 3 now that the toolbars are working for it.

    Do you typically use the Radial Menu for your x230t?

    Thanks for the reply!

    Yeah. Sucks big time!

    Yeah. The radial menu or lblb's toolbar are the next best thing. In the absence of pen+touch at the same time, it has toggle functions. That is, press a button (say, Alt key) and it'll remain down/activated until you press it again. It'll hamper your productivity but it's the next best thing other than an ArtDock or Keyboard.

    Hi, is there something I can edit to enable simultaneous pen+touch in Windows 8? I'm using custom toolbar on Vaio Flip 15 (TouchKey is not an option for my hardware).
