I am trying to use the pixel pen on a pixel book with the jamboard app.  The pen does not work well at all.  Often it is not detected when trying to write or draw.

Welcome to the Google for Education forum! What version of the Chrome OS are you using?  I have the Pixelbook device and I am able to use my pen on the Jamboard app.  You may need to update your OS and or the Jamboard app.  Please try to do this and post an update to your status.
I hope this helps.

Hello thanks for the reply  

I .am using  Version 72.0.3626.122 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Jamboard is as of 14th February version.  The pen works intermittently.  Especially the writing auto detect feature it often misses words on the screen.  It works fine on other apps.

I am having exactly the same problem with my Chuwi hi9 plus and 1024 level pressure sensitive stylus. Unless I press very, very lightly on the screen leaving gossamer threads, the Jamboard app interprets my stylus as an eraser rather than pen. Finger input is little better. The app is thus unusable. The web version works perfectly. Any ideas? Is there an option of disabling finger as eraser functionality?
