Hi. I am working on a Microsoft Surface Pro 1 with windows 8.1 using LR5.2. The right click option using the provided stylus barely works (press and hold the button on the stylus then place it on the page produces a right click normally). I have submitted this question in the lightroom forum and it seems I am not the only person to have this problem. In all other programs and applications that I run I can access the right click every time however in Lightroom I cannot get it more often than I can. It can take me 20 or 30 attempts and even then I am not guaranteed success. Can you please provide me with some feedback or a solution to this problem. Many thanks

I hane exactly the same problem. Sometimes if you do it very very quickly it works but otherwise its a real problem.

Fixed it !!!
Download the latest Wacon Driver thats the first step .... But still doesn't work as you then need to set this up now.
Go to Control Panel and look for Pen and Tablet Properties. You will see a pen with two buttons ... Set both to "Right Click" then go to Advanced and set the "Hover Click" and click OK. Then exit.
When you go to LR5 to right click simply hover over where you want and click the button. No need to touch the screen. Took me ages to figure this out, hope it helps everyone having a problem
