    I have a weird problem with Office 2003 on my Lenovo X61t with Vista Business.
    I can find the ink tools ok, but I cannot select them. If I click on the ink tool
    in, for instance, Ink Annotations, nothing happens. The regular pointer stays selected. Has anyone seen this before? The pen works fine in other
    applications and as normal mouse in Office.

    I personally haven't had this problem (I'm using Vista Ultimate with Office 2007) but I suggest downloading the latest driver for the Tablet PC from the Wacom website (www.wacom.com/tabletpc/driver.cfm). I know it helps with pressure sensitivity issues in some programs, and it may fix your problem in in Office. Hope it helps!

    Thanks, I'll give it a shot. But the click actually does register, the pen
    icon becomes shaded when I click it, but as soon as I remove the pen
    the normal pointer is reselected.

    Did you download the Tablet PC pack for MS Office 2003? 2003 doesn't have native tablet functionality so you have to get this extra pack for it to ink properly. Google for it if you need it or check out an earlier link on the forums about office 2003.

    Doesn't this apply to office 2002 only? 2003 seems to have ink support
    since the ink menus are present.

    I've had no luck with updating the Wacom drivers and Office 2003 is
    completely up to date with patches as far as I can tell.
