Now some things about the perception of the active surface:
Depending on the model of the touch tablet pc, it can accept the use of touch, pen, or both. However the touch and the pen cannot be used both in the same time.
On touch-sensitive tablet models, slide your finger across the active area to position the cursor. Use one or two fingers to click and navigate. Use two fingers for gestures that control other functions such as running or increase / decrease.
For tablets that support both pen and touch use:
Touch is disabled whenever the pen tip or eraser is located near the touch tablet pc. Pick up the pencil and remove the hand from the active surface of the tablet to re-activate the touch function. Active area for the pen is slightly larger than the active surface to touch.
Using the pencil:
The pencil works only on surfaces of a touch tablet pc that support pen use. Wherever you place the pencil on the touch tablet pc, the screen cursor will jump to the corresponding point on the screen. The cursor position on the screen indicates the position of the pen, and the cursor will move across the tablet surface as you move the pen.
For a touch tablet pc that supports the use of a pen, the active surface is a scale representation of the screen / computer screens. By default the active surface uses the entire screen or all the screens if you have multiple screens.
