I. General Information
Welcome to the world of the computing pen! You are able to discover how easy
to control your personal computer by using a wireless stylus pen instead of a
mouse. The function of the stylus pen lets you draw a line very thin, thick, light
or dark (called “pressure sensitivity”). You also can write, sign, and annotate
documents, and draw, sketch or paint as easily as you would on normal paper
and simulate the functions like pencil, mark pen, brush, or watercolor pen by
using commercial software packages such as Adobe® PhotoShop™, Corel®
Painter™ and Corel® Paint Shop™.
2. Pen Tablet Functions
After installing the device driver, your pen tablet features the following functions:
– You can move the cursor to any location on the
screen by moving the stylus pen tip over the tablet’s surface (the pen tip
does not have to touch the surface).
Three-button mouse commands
- Your pen tablet provides all
functions of a three- button mouse by using its pen tip and two buttons.
– You can scroll documents and Web pages by pressing
the middle button of the pen over the tablet’s working area.

brushes and pencils and you can press down the pen tip harder, lighter,
stronger or thicker, and subtle pencil lines you will receive.

mouse, to “wake it up” if it has gone into standby mode. A built-in power

button to “wake” it up from the standby mode.
7.2 Tapping before you use the stylus pen
Before you use the pen, or after having not used it for several minutes, tap the
pen on any surface of the tablet to “wake” it up from the standby mode.
7.3 Double tapping

To store the pen, make sure the tip does not touch anything, and especially do

horizontally with the pen tip free of any pressure by other objects.
