Customize Surface Pen

I have searched for this but no luck

Can the pen be switched from a writing tool to just a pointer/selection tool?

I use the pen a lot (great device) but on a spreadsheet I am constantly leaving "ink" marks where I do not want them. There probably is a setting that I am missing.

Can I customize the eraser clicks to switch between using the pen as a writing tool to an action similar to a mouse?
Thanks

I'll assume you need help with Office 2016...

I had the same problem with excel
Make sure you are in Normal Mode and not Display mode.
see 3 icons lower left on an excel sheet.
try both and use the one that does not leave ink marks.

I have the same problem except when filling in a Word template (.dotx). Checking the pen box as described above does not stop the pen from drawing when I'm selecting a text entry box. Frustrating. I must be missing a setting somewhere?
