    On a different note- did anyone figure out how to get the right click button to just be a right click? And not use the Samsung stuff? Did you just uninstall the Samsung program? Or did it run deeper than that? Button control is very useful.

    My Thinkpad had to be sent in for repairs at the depot, and I'm considering picking one of these up and testing it for a few weeks.

    Based on Lisa's review, you'd have to wait for Wacom to allow the standard wacom drivers to be installed on this device in order to customize the button. Hopefully it gets updated soon since I like changing stylus sensitivity and disabling the button. Based on the review, she said there were no stylus options, which is weird but my Galaxy Note devices practically had no settings other than showing the shortcuts when pulled and detecting when the pen is removed. There also no mention of s pen related settings on the manual.

    It's probably a stupid question, but somebody indulge me...

    What happens if a user installs one of the old Wacom Penabled drivers? Does the computer refuse to run the install? Does it just not recognize the hardware?

    Has somebody already tried this and I just failed to read the post?

    What happens if you plug in an Intuos tablet or a Cintiq and install its drivers?

    Waaaait a second...

    What does a stylus side button actually do on this computer?

    Can it be used the way the old single-button Penabled pens were, where the button can trigger a mouse equivalent right click?

    Can you set the pen to perform that convenient "hover click" feature?

    As far as I know, the answer is no. It only pulls up Samsung's stupid pen interface program.

    Samsung's Pen feature menu looks like this:

    It's fine in Android, but on a full fledged windows PC they better allow us to install the Wacom driver or use the windows 10 pen menu to customize the button stat! I would not be able to use this machine at all if I couldn't right click with the pen.

    I tried installing 7.2 Wacom drivers on the Galaxy Book. No go- you get the no supported tablet found error. We figure it's because the hardware id is different enough that it doesn't recognise it.

    It's haaaaard and it sucks. :( Especially since CSP doesn't do hold to right click.

    Maybe if we all complain to Samsung collectively...

    With regards to the driver, what is the closest device that supports the wacom emr of this tablet? I'm thinking maybe we can hack the driver and application to detect the Notebook 9 Pro as another device. Preferably one that has tilt too with the same amount of pressure. Samsung support doesn't want to confirm or deny if it will ever get the feel drivers.

    Oh. My. God.

    Did somebody utter one of the Tablet Deities' names in vain? Or not make the annual goat sacrifice in accordance with the Law? This on-going bait & switch, "So Close And Yet So Far" cosmic joke has been running for years.

    Well.., I guess at least I can stop grumbling about the lack of units available in Canada.

    I wonder how hackable the driver code is... Maybe the Bongofish people could do something about this.

    But seriously: Wow.
