The Logic Trace software requires the computer to have the Tablet Mode turned OFF in Windows 10.
There is only one pen stylus. The tracing board has an electrical grid underneath the surface - a bunch of wires going up and down and across. The pen stylus generates a magnetic field. Get the pen stylus close to the board and the board senses the magnetic field and knows exactly where the tip of the pen is. The pen does not need to be touching the board. Push a button on the pen and points go to the computer which the logic trace software turns into a DXF file.
Usually most people have no troubles tracing the outside of parts with the pen stylus it is the inside holes that cause issues. There is an easy fix. At the hardware store in the paint department they sell brown paper for protecting floors when painting. That paper changes color when wet. Try placing the paper on the board, place the part on top of the paper, trace the outside of the part, with a misting bottle spray water droplets in the inside holes, lift the part up, and then trace the wet spots.
If the template is nonmetal for example a cardboard template, some people will trace the top of the template using the pen stylus or the cursor.
