Your tablet includes the NVIDIA DirectStylus™. This stylus enables precise control of handwriting, drawing, and touchscreen games that require pinpoint accuracy.
The stylus has a chisel tip, similar to the tip of a highlighter pen. For fine lines, touch with the pointed tip. For thick lines, touch with the full width of the chisel.
NOTE Some apps do not support variable line thickness. In those apps, the stylus produces the same line thickness, regardless of which part of the tip you use.
When the tablet is in stylus-only mode, the touchscreen only responds to input from the stylus. Touches from your finger or palm are ignored.
Before you can use stylus-only mode, you must enable access in the settings.
Before you can use stylus-only mode, you must enable access in the settings. For more information, see How to Enable Access to Stylus-Only Mode.
NOTE Your NVIDIA device automatically disables stylus-only mode when you return the stylus to its holder. The device also disables stylus-only mode when you press the power button quickly to put the device to sleep. This allows you to continue using the touchscreen even if you left the device in stylus mode but do not have the stylus with you.
Your tablet includes palm-rejection technology. This technology ensures that the touch screen responds only to the stylus while you are writing, even if you rest your hand on the screen while you write. When the stylus is not touching the screen, the touchscreen responds normally to your finger.
If your palm is sometimes misidentified when you reposition your hand on the screen, then you can change the DirectStylus pen-to-touch delay to optimize palm rejection for your writing style. Pen-to-touch delay temporarily suppresses non-stylus touches during and after stylus input. The default delay of 0.5 seconds works well for most users.
If you do a lot of stylus interactions with your palm on the screen, select a longer delay. If you do not put your palm on the screen and you switch quickly between stylus and finger inputs, select a shorter delay.
Left-handed users tend to place their palm on the left side of the screen. In left-handed mode, the palm rejection algorithm rejects stray touch inputs from the left side of the screen.
The draw cursor shows when the stylus touches the screen and provides precision visual feedback.
The DirectStylus Launcher provides quick access to a subset of your apps. When DirectStylus Launcher opens, tap any app icon to open the app.
You may add or remove apps from the DirectStylus launcher at any time.
You can select a single app to open automatically when the stylus is removed.
Follow these steps to prevent any app from opening when the stylus is removed.
