Sprout Pro by HP G2 - WorkTools Input Virtual Keyboard

This information applies to WorkTools Input virtual keyboard included with the Sprout Pro by HP G2.
WorkTools Input is a virtual keyboard app on Sprout.
Recent updates to WorkTools Input
  • Keyboard and trackpad are now moveable; you can drag them around on the touchmat and put them where you prefer. The new active pen input tool is moveable and resizable.
  • Recent updates to WorkTools Input include a virtual touchpad. This, and other enhancements, are available in Windows 10 Creators Update and Fall Creators Update. Depending on the Windows version on your computer, the updated features may vary. This new update features virtual buttons on the touchmat to toggle on and off the keyboard and the new virtual touchpad.
Using the Input keyboard
WorkTools Input now features an Active Pen surface for input by an Active pen from the surface on the touchmat. Also, the virtual keyboard has enhanced palm rejection on the touch mat. This means that when the virtual keyboard is active, everything else on the touch mat is deactivated and touching the touchmat inadvertently does not cause unexpected responses from the keyboard. The keyboard, trackpad, and Active Pen surface can be moved about on the touchmat.
To open the virtual keyboard, tap the keyboard button on the Sprout Connector.

With the Input keyboard open you can type your input on Sprout without activating other actions on the touch mat.
Updated features for Input in Windows 10 Creators Update and Fall Creators Update
HP continues to update and enhance the features and functionality of WorkTools Input. The Input virtual keyboard is displayed on the touchmat. Updated features include automatic palm rejection so when using the virtual keyboard or the new touchpad feature, the touchmat is not sensitive to other touching by your hand, fingers, or palm. The keyboard can also be docked so it remains stationary or it can be undocked so you can move it around on the touchmat for your convenience. Some features, such as docking and undocking, might not be available in Creators Update.
Input features in Windows 10 Creators Update
