A friend called round and showed me his Galaxy Tablet (GT-P7510) and showed how it has suddenly strated drawing lines whenever he swipes the screen.

There appears to be an X and Y axis marking along the top edge of the window, and tapping the screen produces cross-hairs.

I checked to ensure something like S-Pen isn't turned on ... he says it isn't.

Any ideas please?

R.

Didn't think to look there ... and yes a reference on the 'net suggests that too.

Will forward advice to owner.

Thanks,

R.
