Precision Pen 3 does not work properly. Touching with it on the screen opens random app. Also, window resizing does not work.

Are people able to get the video output working on the China rom? Mine hasn't worked since the beginning, thought this mode might get it working but alas no.

Yes, I can use it with a USB-C HUB with HDMI output without trouble. But may be this related to problems about icons overlay.

After testing video output today, small issue on my desktop icons come (picture1 & picture2). The only way out I've found is to clean data of ZUI desktop home.
!!Don't clean red ZUI Home!!: ZUI desktop Home is hidden by Lenovo app manager. So I use Apps2SD PRO > Link app > search for ZUI > Seleect blue ZUI Home > (three dots bottom left) manage> (picture3) storage > clean data (you will lose all the desktop icons sent to the desktop, so you can try to clean cache only and report here)

Update: On the application manager, check "Show system" available in the three-dot menu at the top right. then look for PC Mode Desktop app and try clearing cache and data (clearing data will delete all icons sent to desktop)

Thanks. To be honest there's a good chance I ruined video output functionality myself with a fairly extreme adb debloat straight out the box. I'll get to the bottom of it eventually when I can be arsed, probably...

I've tried clearing both cache and data from the ZUI desktop app but still facing the same issue

    Update : I've finally managed to do it without need of installing "Setedit".

    As I have repeatedly read of users being disappointed with the lack of PC Mode in ZUI 14, so I decided to look into this.

    My application simply does this with no other manipulations than a simple click on the application.

    The first time you will run it, this will ask you permission to modify settings but your device will go to the desktop mode before you have time to do it.

    When you will be in desktop mode if you run again on the app. You will be asked again and have to allow permission to modify settings. For a strange reason that’s only really required, for going back to the classic mode.

    no, your apk file app-debug.apk.... if we install this apk file we can switch pc mode on and off ? or do we still need to do all the other stuff as well ?
    If setedit is installed and if you have already run it once to change zui_pc_mode. Install my app, allow it to change system and you can turn PC mode on and off just by launching it.

    I just uploaded a new version.
    Contrary to what I had first thought. The only really useful element in the source code of setedit, is as far as we are concerned: "targetSdkVersion 22" present in: build.gradle.

    The shared key, present in the Sources of Setedit, pushed me to do the same. For this new version made available to you, I did not make this mistake, since nothing prevents you from compiling yours with your own key.

    are you saying that if we use your application we dont need to use the staredit hack ? we simply run your app and it switches to PC mode ?

    does your app switch to pc mode even when the tablet is not connected to external monitor or TV ?
    staredit hack ?!?
    Yes like, with setedit you will be able to switch to pc mode even when the tablet is not connected to external monitor or TV.
