Touchscreen Palm Rejection in Portrait Mode

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello all,

Do people find that the palm rejection for pen inputs get significantly worse when writing in portrait mode on Windows laptops?

I spoke to customer support for Dell and they told me this is a problem across all laptops, but couldn't give me a definitive explanation for why palm rejection seemed to be radically worse when in portrait mode.

Any thoughts?

Well, all Windows based ones. If you want good palm rejection and note taking, nothing beats an iPad and an Apple Pencil.

It's likely that the software is just designed to work best in landscape mode. Not really anything you can do about it.

Well that's unfortunate to hear. At least now I can rest easy knowing there's nothing I can do about it on my end. Thanks for the insight.
