PowerApps - Pen Input
It seems there is an issue with the Pen Input control on touch screen devices. Instead of being able to write freely with your finger or stylus, the pen now writes for a few milliseconds and stops - creating a bunch of short 'scratches' on the screen rather then linked up words.
Below is an example of what happens. You can only write for a split second before the ink runs dry and you have to start again. I have replicated on different devices (Android, Surface Book) and on different Office 365 tennants.

Everything works fine in PowerApps studio, the issue only appears when you publish the app and consume it on a tablet or mobile.
It may be a new bug as everything was working until Thursday or Friday 1 June 2018. I am more than happy to try suggestions if anyone has tips. Has anyone else noticed the issue, are other pen input Apps still working OK?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hey all - The fix for the pen input control should now be seen worldwide. If there are still issues, please let me know.
