Using blender on Surface Pro 4. I've set the virtual pixel mode to "double" and it's great for the display UI. But I can't manipulate anything with the rotate tool using either the pen or a mouse.

I've tried playing with the manipulator size and handle size, but that doesn't help.

I also can't navigate/move the view using the pen.

Anyone have any setup suggestions to get me going?

  • $\begingroup$ You should have Emulate 3 Button mouse enabled - you can find that under Input in the Preferences. This might be helpful blender.stackexchange.com/questions/75288/… $\endgroup$ – Patdog Jun 12 '17 at 21:13
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks @Patdog, Emulate 3 Button mouse let me use the pen. $\endgroup$ – chris Jun 13 '17 at 23:00

The Emulate 3 Button Mouse setting let me use the pen to interact with objects and the scene.

The problem I was having with the rotate manipulator turned out to be a separate issue, and was fixed by changing the selection mode under User Preferences>System from automatic to OpenGL Occlusion Queries.
