When using a laptop touchpad to input Chinese via handwriting on Windows 8, I either have to double tap or press down in order to write. On a MacBook, I just write without needing an initial double tap or pressing down while writing. Is there a way to do the same in Windows 8? I read through some of Pinyin Joes pieces on Windows 8, he doesn't seem to have any info on this.
Also, I tried using an iPad/iPhone stylus on a Windows 8 laptop touchscreen, it doesn't seem to be as receptive as on iOS devices. For example, if I write 我, it will miss every other or every third stroke. Is this a function of the touchscreen as it is a budget laptop or the stylus? Are styluses for Windows 8 different than those for Apple?
