Remote Stylus & Apple Pencil

Starting v3.4.2.0, Splashtop supports stylus devices and pen events such as pressure, orientation, tilt, size etc. Before v3.4.2.0, only general mouse data and touch events were supported.

This remote stylus feature uses a pen input injection capability from Windows 10, so it is only available when connecting to a Windows 10 streamer. Remote stylus features can also be used with USB/Device passthrough for Windows starting v3.4.4.0.

Note: Supported since Gateway version v3.14.0 or above.
