    Hi!

    Today my new Tc4200 arrived. It seems to be exactly that thin what i have expected :) But one problem is going on. I can not erase anything with the Pen. The Description says you have to use the reverse side from the pen, but when i do this the pen writes again? Can anyone describe me how to erase with the pen?

    I know now what the problem is. In Windows "Journal" the eraser works perfektly. But in the entry filed in the internetexplorer it works not. Ok no problem...

    I have a similar question??

    I noticed that the eraser end of the pen is kinda spring loaded like a regular pen.

    I might assume this spring loaded end offers some type of option??

    but havn't had the time to look into it yet.

    does anyone know??

    maybe a middle mouse button?

    bowlrider, I am not sure what you are asking. Do you want to know if the pen buttons are programmable?

    barry, I was just curious on if anyone knows why the eraser end of the tc4200 pen is spring loaded It almost seems like it could be used as another button, but I havnt found any documentation on this

    I have a tc4200 as well, and from my experience, the eraser is springloaded because if you don't actually push down, it won't erase. I just tested it in onenote. If I flip my pen upside down, the eraser icon replaces the arrow, but if I don't apply pressure it won't erase anything. Hope that helped :). Oh and with some programs, the eraser end doesn't work, and acts just like the pen side. The eraser function should work in all windows/office programs though.

    I think what you're asking is can I reprogram the eraser to be a some other function like I can with some 3 button mice. The short answer is not that I am aware of. The long answer is possibly. If it were able to be reprogrammable, that would be a function of the Wacom driver, which at present does not support such functionality.

    ria...

    thanks for the info

    now i know and it did the same for me in onenote

    i figured there had to be a reason for the spring loaded eraser :)
