I want to have different touch and digitizer pen calibration for each orientation of the screen.

The touch settings are not too bad since the location is based on the tip of the finger. It feels a little off, but it could just be my lack of practice with touch screens.

The digitizer pen on the other hand does not use the very tip of the pen for location, but instead, the sensor is about 1/4th to 3/8th of an inch from the tip. So when the screen orientation is changed, the current calibration actually works against the proper location. The more one writes at an angle, the worse it becomes.

If anyone knows of a decent fix that would be great, if not, I would not mind creating a program that looks for a rotation then updates the registry with the proper calibration. Worse case I just have little scripts that I activate manually when ever I change orientation. But, I don't know where those values are located. This was a hell of a lot easier in Linux.

If needed, The computer is a Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T1C (XE700T1C-A01US) with Windows 8 x64.

Thank you for any little help you can give me,
