About the HP x360 11 EMR Pen with Eraser
The HP x360 11 EMR Pen with Eraser is a lightweight digital stylus designed for touchscreen interaction on the HP Chromebook 11 G1 Education Edition notebooks. The pen is only compatible with touchscreens that have a digitizer. The pen uses HP Electro-Magnetic Resonance (EMR) technology to draw small amounts of energy from a sensor embedded in the panel into the internal circuitry of the pen.
  note:
The pen does not use batteries. The HP Electro-Magnetic Resonance (EMR) technology that draws energy form the panel, supplies power to the pen.
The pen is compatible with the Google Chrome operating system, and can be used to write or draw on the screen and to navigate the operating system and compatible applications.
Using the pen
You do not need to configure or pair the pen before using it with the Chromebook. It works directly out-of-the-box when used with a compatible Chromebook.
To begin using the pen, press the tip of the pen against the Chromebook’s touchscreen. The touchscreen will automatically detect the pen, and it can be used to perform the following touchscreen functions:
  • Select an item: Tap the pen once on the screen to select an item.
  • Right-click: Tap and gently press the tip on the screen to right-click an item.
  • Select multiple items: Press and hold the pen against the first item you want to select. Then, while still holding the item, press the Shift key, and select the last item. The Shift key function selects all the items between and including the first and the last item.
  • Erase items: Press and hold the eraser against the screen on the item you want to erase. Or, use the Erase tool in the Stylus tools utility to erase notes or drawings.
  • Hide or display the shelf or the taskbar: Place the tip of the pen on the bottom of the touchscreen and swipe upwards.
  note:
You cannot zoom an image in or out by placing a finger and the pen on the touchscreen and then spreading (zoom out) or pinching them together (zoom in). The touchscreen seamlessly swaps between pen-input and touch-input, but does not support the simultaneous use of pen-input and touch-input. However, to save power, the digitizer automatically deactivates if the tip has no pressure level and is out of hovering range for 1.5 seconds.
Using the stylus tools
With the Stylus tools utility, you can use the pen to take notes and screenshots, draw, or act as a laser pointer or a magnifying glass.
  caution:
Take care when using the pen. The pen tips are subject to breakage. The impact from dropping the pen on the floor can break or damage the pen tip. Do not apply excessive pressure with the pen on the touchscreen. Too much pressure can cause damage to the pen tip.
To open the Stylus tools utility, tap the Stylus icon on the task bar.

  4. Select the drawing tool, color, and the width of the line or stroke.
    The pen is pressure-sensitive, therefore, to increase the thickness you press a bit harder on the tip while using the pen. Apply less pressure to produce a thinner line. Some apps supported do not have the pressure sensitive feature, so it is necessary to change the width in the menu.
