    I tried one in the store and when I press and hold the button on the pen it takes a screenshot of either a web page or photo, then I go to the gallery to annotate on it. Is there an easier way? Do you need to take screenshots of photos to annotate on them or is there another way?

    Thanks.

    You don't have to go to gallery. You can start drawing on a screenshot as soon as you take it.

    That is not working for me. Is there some setting somewhere that has to be enabled? Are you pushing the button on the pen or doing any other sort of command when drawing?

    Thanks.

    To take a screenshot, do a long-click on the screen with the pen while holding down the pen button. This will put you into edit mode, with a row of tools along the screen, and you can annotate the screenshot. Press the 'tick' icon to save it.

    What about for photos? When I press the pen to a photo in the gallery it pops up with what looks like a mini crop tool and it says manually detect. Im not able to draw on them unless I take a screen capture of the photo.
