Xournal Windows 8 Eraser not working

  • FloRun271192


    sorry for the bad english, i'm from germany.

    I hope you can help me with my xournal.

    Xournal is super program.

    Under windows 7 it's function very well, but under windows 8

    the eraser of my pen (Lenovo Thinkpad X230T , Wacom technique) is not function. I activate the Eraser Tip an XInput.

    But sometimes the Xinput is disabled as grey field, i dont know why, i must start a second instance.

    But the eraser doesnt work.

    What i do wrong?

    Or is it Windows 8.

    I installed the newest driver.

    I searched in Google, but nothing find for windows 8 64 bit.

    I hope someone can help me.


    greets Flo

    It is most likely a problem either with xournal or with the wacom driver… perhaps you can configure the wacom driver so that the eraser does a middle or right click instead of a left click, and then assign button 2 or 3 to the eraser in xournal ? (not sure if the Windows 8 version of the wacom driver offers this possibility).

    I'm sorry I don't have Windows 8 so I can't test or help…

    Actually, after recent updates to my Windows 7 system, the eraser tip is also not working properly for me. Not sure how to fix it… in the meantime, hopefully the side button works as eraser (it does for me). I will investigate when I can, but won't have time immediately.
