    8.1 Update 1 fixes tap and drag!!!

    what? all that setting does is change the acceleration of the cursor. has nothing to do with tracking your finger on the touchpad.

    A Patch by any other name would revise no less

    i've got to say, this one is as bad for me as the botched december firmware update, when I sent them back for replacement. 8.1 update 1 is causing the system to crash every time it goes to sleep (fans full speed, then windows reboots); tap and drag is nice, but implemented very poorly; and i...

    Sometimes when turning screen off, the fan goes INTENSE for several seconds. Crash!

    i'm having the same problem. definitely related the 8.1 update 1 that just came out.

    8.1 Update 1 fixes tap and drag!!!

    i like that they have added this feature.. however.. i feel that the implementation isn't that great. for example, when i'm in gmail, selecting (checkboxes) my emails in a list, it now wants to drag instead of allowing me to select multiple boxes at once. IE the delay period for sensing a...

    if you use the function keys (F1-F12), more than the associated actions on them, you can lock it into F-key mode by pressing Caps + Fn together.

    Drag gestures with touchpad?

    i think that may be a windows 8 app, not a windows 8.1 app. simply because its functionality is built into the settings area now. it also doesn't work for me (type cover 2)

    Track Pad Driver Bug Type Cover 1 & 2

    Pen Accuracy and Calibration

    your new unit doesn't have any issues? i find the pen calibration/tracking is excellent in the middle of the screen, but it seems it loses resolution near the edges (ie. when you see the pen cursor on the screen, if you move it anywhere in the middle it will move pixel by pixel, but on the edges...

    Drag gestures with touchpad?

    i'm able to do them now as well, just wasn't swiping fast enough. i'm assuming the touchpad is using the same technology as the touch cover, which is why it's fairly inaccurate and doesn't use physical buttons
