    I use the touch keyboard with the pen a lot when I sign in.

    Twitter is to communications as haiku is to literature.

    I suspect that the reticence the sign in keypad has for the pen is caused by enabling the instant note in TrueNote feature.

    And the pen is just too slippery.

    Anyone have an elegant solution?

    I'm not aware of any substitute pens being available yet. Are there any other Wacom AES tablets out there?

    One of the recent Dell Venue tablets is Wacom AES. And then there's the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14 currently sold at Best Buy in the U.S. Neither of those pens works on my Encore 2 Write, though.

    @WillAdams, have you tried updating the Wacom feel driver to see if you experience any improvement in pen response? You might also consider a screen protector to reduce slipperiness.

    It’s the pen itself which is too slippery. Can’t stand screen protectors.

    I’m currently wrapping the pen in blue painters tape strips (which I have left over from 3D printing) which helps.

    Is there any jitter and, if so, is it less noticeable than the Surface Pro 4/Surface Book?

    Has anyone tried installing the 64-bit version of Windows onto a Toshiba Encore 2 Write?

    Apparently I'll need to do so in order to run the Windows version of Affinity Designer.

    Also, on the screen flickering thing, it seems to be caused by the machine turning the AC connection on/off while plugged in --- you can keep it from happening by setting the screen brightness for AC and battery usage to the same values.

    Okay, it's been over a year, and I've begun having battery problems

    Managed to reset the battery system once (holding down the power and volume up buttons?) once, and that fixed the problem for a bit, but it's just not charging or holding a charge, even when powered off, or sleeping.

    Anyone done a battery replacement on one of these yet?

    I still have the balance of an extended warranty --- worth it to pay and send the unit to Toshiba (after backing it up?)
