    Works just like an external Wacom tablet.
    You drive the pen/cursor from the bottom section, however, you lose
    your keyboard. You'll need an external keyboard or have to use
    the on-screen one.

    I prefer the on-screen digitizing for drawing though there are instances where
    using the digitizer tablet works better for some scenarios

    My pen had jaggies and generally mis-behaved.
    Once you use the registry hack to enable the legacy thing,
    it works pretty good considering it's not a true EMR.

    It straightens out the dragging and scrolling when your pen touches the
    screen. The pen was almost useless in older programs.
    It was so bad, I was considering returning the Yogabook.
    ComicGuy put me onto this fix via Redditt post,
    it did help to make the c930 useful for what I use it for.
    Especially on legacy(older) programs under Windows 10.

    It settled the jitter from what it was initially, which was really wild/useless
    BUT it does not eliminate it! I think it's a Wacom AES thing.
    I wish this computer had an EMR pen, would be much more
    useful for fine work.

    The slow diagonal is still going to be wavy. You need to make
    a quick forceful stroke to get a straight line.

    AES seems to be between Dells(old) pen and the NTrig.
    You are not going to get the EMR smoothness. At least as far as
    I have experienced. I agree, this is not an artist pad, use your EMR
    tablet for fine work.
    But it works for rough sketching and note taking. The eInk side works great
    outside in the sun for rough sketches and note taking, even reading pdfs etc!

    Here's the registry hack:
    A couple of ways to accomplish this
    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
    Method #1
    Create Reg entry via Command Prompt

    1--Remember to back up your registry before diving in.
    2--Win+X
    3--Command Prompt Admin (Important to select Admin Command Prompt)
    3a--Type: cd\ (Takes you to the root C:)
    4--Enter the following:

    reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pen /v LegacyPenInteractionModel /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    5--Press Enter
    6--Restart Computer for Registry Entry to engage

    (7)--To undo, simply change to "1" to a "0" to turn off

    reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pen /v LegacyPenInteractionModel /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    Method #2
    Create your own Reg file

    1--Remember to back up your registry before diving in
    2--Type in:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pen /v LegacyPenInteractionModel /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    3--Save as "Enable Legacy AES pen.reg"
    (Without quotes) or what ever you want to name it.
    4--Double click the .reg file and it will auto enter in the Registry
     
    dproldan and Shogmaster like this.
