It's a pain allright. I have experimented with several different stylus's. One that will slide across the surface seems to be best. I find if you put the pressure on just off the screen, then follow through keeping the pressure constant, seems to work most time. Not so easy making a small change though.
I had problems with the scrolling, and I still haven't mastered it, but I'm a lot better at it now. The selection seems to happen if you briefly touch the screen. If you deliberately plant your finger, or whatever, on the screen and hold it there for a fraction of a second before moving it, you won't select, you'll scroll. OTOH I have an Ecotox flashed M001 and a standard one, and I don't know if it's the firmware or a difference in the screens, but the standard 1.74 version seems to work better than the Ecotox one.
ive found that it SEEMS like that SOMETIMES it seems like even if i maintain pressure the screen acts like i let off on the pressure. so it might be a hardware issue too.ive found i have better control with a nintendo DS stylus than my finger though.
I reckon it's counter intuitive. Because you keep selecting things when you try to scroll, the natural reaction is to try and scroll quicker and lighter.What you need to do is press firmly, then drag and slowly release. Even if it lights up to be selected, as long as you start dragging you won't actually select it (once you get the timing right)
It works well provided you do a couple of things. 1. Recalibrate with a fine-tipped object like a stylus. Do NOT use your finger. The tip is far too fat. 2. When you scroll, Touch-press (don't "flik")....and then move your finger up or down, keeping it in contact with the screen surface at all times. Then release. Or use a stylus.
[quote name='jacobius;31328]hey ive done all that' date=' its just not top of the line in functionality. im at peace with it, but i can recognize its shortcomings[/QUOTE'] Ok. I know I had trouble with scrolling at first, too, but either I have learned how to do it so it works best or the device has been modified in some way so it works better. Maybe both. I generally have very few scrolling issues now.
