    How to use stylus/pen as cursor/mouse on microsoft whiteboard?


    When I connect my stylus & drawing pad and load microsoft whiteboard it detects the stylus as a pen, whilst i want it to act as the cursor. I've tried changing the settings and clicking "act as cursor on some applications" but it has not changed anything!

    :)

  3. Whiteboard troubleshooting. Missing pen cursor.

    Hi,

    I'm using Microsoft Whiteboard with a XP-PEN drawing tablet.

    After a few minutes of sketching, the Whiteboard app freezes for some seconds and, afterwards, the pen cursors disappears. I can still draw, but without the cursor visible it's not feasible to sketch anymore.

    I've tried to disable the pen and enable it again, but it doesn't work.

    After I restart the computer, I get the pen cursor working again.

    I really like the Whiteboard app. It helps make teams meetings more productive.

    But I can't really use it like this.

    Can anyone help?

    Problem with selecting pen in Whiteboard

    I have a laptop with touchscreen and a (active) stylus. I use the whiteboard a lot but I have a problem with selecting a pen/brush in the toolbar: when I click on it with the stylus it keeps selecting 2 pens - the first selected pen is still active. The result is that sometimes the program switches between the two selected pens. This morning I even had three pens at the same time selected! Is anyone familiar with this problem? I couldn't find any info about it elsewhere. I'm on Windows 10.1909 Home. My laptop is a Lenovo Yoga C940.
