Stylus scrolls rather than selecting text? How to drag-select with a stylus and select text?
Since the days of Go Corp.'s PenPoint and Windows for Pen Computing, I have been accustomed to select text by just dragging the stylus --- that no longer works --- for some reason the stylus has now been dumbed down to be an 11th touch input which scrolls.
How can I get back the far more expressive behavour of drag-select text with a stylus and using touch when I wish to scroll?
As an FYI, I handed a stylus and my Samsung Galaxy Book 12 (running Windows Build 1703 which predates this change) to a technician at the local Best Buy and they had no problem selecting text --- when I challenged them to select text on a Galaxy Book 3 Pro 360 running Windows 11 using the stylus they were unable to to.
Could we please have an option to restore the traditional behaviour?
The fix suggested at:
isn't directly available in Windows 11, and the equivalent setting:
Settings | Bluetooth & Devices | Pen & Windows Ink | Additional Pen Settings | Let me use my pen as a mouse when it's available
doesn't seem to work when it is enabled.
