1.6.8 surface pen issue
#1
First I must say MS 1.6.8 feels much more stable!

Only issue so far: Surface pen cannot be used to scroll (readonly) lists. In setlist edit mode, it can change the order of songs but does not scroll the list.

I like doing everything with the surface pen in choir practice.

Unfortunately, Microsoft decided that the pen can't be used to scroll up or down lists like a finger. Instead, you have to use the scrollbars that normally popup automatically. I hid those scrollbars throughout most of my app, because with a finger, they are a nuisance that takes up screen space and can often cover up content. So let me ask you this, if I make those scrollbars something you can enable in the settings, is that going to meet your needs? I want to make sure you would actually use the scrollbars with your stylus before going through the work of setting that all up.

Mike,

I would rather use finger scroll then the pen with scroll bars, so it's not worth it..

I see in other Surface forums (not MS related) much has been written about this, with many people wishing pen scroll as an option and others preferring to just use your fingers.
