Welcoming the Bamboo Stylus fineline to your workflow? We’re here to help you get gliding across iPad glass with fine tip precision.

Charging

Apps Pairing Getting Started Bamboo Stylus fineline 1

The Bamboo Stylus fineline‘s internal battery lasts up to 26 hours, but before your creative binge can begin you’ll want to fully charge the stylus via its USB 3.0 port. About two hours is all it takes to bring your new note taking tool to a full charge, and then you’re all set to pair your stylus with your favorite apps.

Pairing

As long as your iPad’s Bluetooth functionality is enabled, the Bamboo Stylus fineline will work as a general input device, but pairing the pen with your app of choice ensures that you’ll enjoy its true potential, such as pressure sensitivity and its programmable button. After opening your favorite compatible app, press the Bamboo Stylus fineline‘s side switch to make sure it’s not in sleep mode. Its indicator light will flash blue for about two seconds as it establishes a proper connection with your iPad. In Wacom’s Bamboo Paper app, you can navigate to the wireless icon where a special menu will prompt you to touch the tip of the stylus to a circle for a moment to activate a connection. The process varies from app to app, though, and sometimes requires adjusting specific settings.

Palm Rejection

The Bamboo Stylus fineline supports palm rejection on a variety of apps, including Bamboo Paper. This functionality allows you to rest your palm on the tablet while using the stylus without registering stray marks. Palm rejection is designed to work automatically, but depending on the app, you may have to adjust your iPad’s system settings and disable Multitasking gestures to ensure peak palm rejection performance.
