    IF I turn off touch while writing in OneNote, I still get stray marks w/ the HP pen.
    If I use my old Cross pen, I have experienced no stray marks,
    whether touch is on or off.

    Any hints to prevent stray marks with the new pen?
    Thanks

    (I'm left handed, if that make a difference. Adjusted for LH in options)

    This will be old EMR - if it works perfectly on an EMR 2 board that might be odd.

    Yes, the old pen works. The offset is 1/4" from new HP Pen.
    Should it not work? Do I have something wrong?

    ...The only other thing I can think to suggest is to wear a drawing glove.

    I think @doobiedoobiedum meant the old EMR pen is expected to have offset etc...

    OK, I mis-understood what he meant.

    Steve S, Today

    Never had to wear a glove with a Wacom pen.
    It's stray marks like the Del pens used to do,
    very uncharacteristic for a Wacom though.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    I do think the stray marks are odd. I would probably try updating drivers and if not corrected, contacting HP support.

    Hi, just as DRTigerlilly said - there should be a (largish) offset if you are using an old EMR tech pen on a new EMR tech pen.
    Old EMR was just horrible away from a sweet spot in the middle of your screen - Wacom only bothered to improve the tech on 3rd party penabled tablets after at least 10-15 years because of competition from Apple and N-Trig. New tablets like the HP zBook should be using new EMR. The old EMR pen will still register some input but it will be off. (and should always be off)

    Sold out now at HP store.

    My Dreamcolor version has fairly significant light bleed as well which is very sensitive to touch on the bezels also..... I've debated the case as well, but also seen it out of stock/special order everywhere in the US as well.

    How's light bleed on everyone else's here? It's interesting how the Z Canvas bleed seems to be just on the edges and fairly in line with the scroll bars, where as on the Zbook it's more semicircular gradient in random places around the screen.

    Almost none, if any at all on mine. No unexpected touch issues ether.

    No light bleed on my screen, either. I tried poking and pressing all around the bezel area but nothing happened. My X2 was a custom build; don't know if that makes a difference?

    Non-Dreamcolor screen, no light bleed on mine either. I do get light bleed if I press around the edges, on some spots more than others.
