  • Uniformity Compensation: Select On to automatically adjust different areas of the screen with respect to the center. This results in uniform brightness and color over the entire screen.
  • Battery Mode: If this setting applies to your device, it allows you to change the amount of maximum battery charge. You can select:
    • Mobile: charges battery to maximum: If your device is typically unplugged and requires a maximum battery charge.
    • Desktop: maximizes battery life span: If your device is typically plugged into a power source and does not require a full battery charge.
  • Energy Smart: Click On so that your pen display goes to sleep if you do not interact with it for more than a few minutes.
  • Dynamic Contrast: Click On so that your screen is automatically adjusted to maintain a constant contrast.
  • Auto Power Down: The default setting is On so that your pen display automatically powers off if you do not interact with it for over 120 minutes.
  • LCD Conditioning: Click Start to automatically adjust the display so that instances of color do not remain on the screen for long periods of time. This prevents image persistence.
  • Factory Reset: Click to return the display settings to their defaults.

Tip: If you change display settings and your screen becomes too dark to see the Factory Reset button, you can press CTRL + ALT + R on your keyboard to reset display settings to their defaults.
