    If I have used the pen for handwriting or highlighting or something like that, then when I tap the Select/Type tool or Panning Hand tool, the moment the stylus approaches the screen it will revert to pen or highlighter. Hence, I'm not able to select anything using the stylus. It is however no problem if I use the mouse.

    It's part of the updated Inking API in Windows 8.x and Office 2013, the idea is to make the pen act like a pen in inking aware applications.

    So basically the "mouse" functions are now only for the mouse and "pen" functions only for the stylus? In other words, nothing is broken?

    Correct what you are seeing it's by design.
