Office Doesn't Recognize Your Pen's Eraser

The pen that came with my Tablet PC includes an “eraser” on the opposite end from the writing tip. When I turn my pen over and point to ink in an Office document, the pointer changes to an eraser, but nothing happens to the ink.

You've stumbled across a usability glitch in the Tablet PC interface. The eraser icon appears when you hover the hardware “eraser” over the body of your document, but the eraser function works only if you press down as you rub out the text. If it doesn't work, try pressing harder. If it still doesn't work, turn the pen over, click the Eraser icon, and use the pen point to remove ink.
