Sorry, been away. No, the HP Create Control panel is pretty extensive. You can fidget to your heart's content in there. Forgot about the Spectre fix - this could be why sometimes even an illustration file goes slowly. Oh no! I can't help anymore, I had to sell my Canvas when we moved home and the new house has way smaller rooms. (House cost more through GRR) I just had nowhere to put the thing which is a real shame. Sounds like you've had a right old experience with the Dell. I'm more and more convinced you got a faulty model and then 2 faulty pens - wow.! I have started looking at the Huion Kamvas models (not the 22) as my 13 worked great alongside my old Macbook but was just too small. Love the zbook but I still hanker for a big screen.
