If you USE the Pen Tool - Please Support our Growth

This month (September 2021) is my first month trying to go FULL TIME with Tablet Pro. This means, more and better tutorials, better software, faster development and big improvements everywhere! While I’m excited about those things for all of us, it’s a scary leap of faith. The easiest and most meaningful way you can support me and Tablet Pro during this transition is a good rating in the Microsoft Store. Please feel free to be honest and transparent and then rate the software based on it’s usefulness, not it being perfect. In your ratings please let others know where you struggle or what the Pen Tool allowed you to do as this will help answer questions for new users. You can click below to rate and from the bottom of my heart, thank you!!! 😁

Unlock Advanced Features on the Pen

When you purchase the R520 2 button stylus built for artists from our store you get a free copy of the infamous Pen Tool. The Pen Tool lets you adjust, control, modify and improve the performance of you Pen. It gives you the ability to change the side buttons to countless functions including CTRL, ALT, SHIFT modifiers useful in 2D and 3D software like Photoshop, Zbrush, Krita, Blender etc… Or just a simple “undo” command to make life faster and easier. If you have a Surface Pen or alternative like the R520, you want the Pen Tool.

Actually I don’t know yet, this affects a very limited number of users. Please send me a support email as we are trying to figure out what this bug is.

Unfortunately, yes. However, the Chupacabra or “el Chupacabra” can be defeated and your cursor restored by following the following steps…. First make sure you don’t have ANY goat blood in your body, this is critical to prevent a possible fatal attack or worse. Second, or as I like to say “secondly” you can switch the pen to one that displays both buttons, invert and barrel, and make sure that “mouse mode” is not selected, please select “none”. Save. 

In the pen tool settings window select the program that you want to associate and hit the edit button. In the Tablet Pro tab select the mode you want to associate and the preset file as well as the mode of Tablet Pro. Make sure that you apply and close the settings window for for the association to activate.

Get the Tablet Pro Pen Tool for Free when you purchase the R520. The link to download your free Pen Tool with included license will be sent inside your purchase confirmation email when you buy the R520 stylus. 

please use the “Tap to Unlock” option with modifiers to override the programs default behavior. Tap the side button, then use the stylus with the modifier applied. 

If you are using the Invert or Barrel buttons to navigate in a 3D program like Zbrush, please turn on the 3D modeling toggle. This will add the Lbutton of the mouse to aid in navigation. NOTE / WARNING / BEWARE / WHY??? if this toggle is on, you need to tap the pen tip down to disengage the mouse Lbutton. Otherwise it will draw while hovering. (we hope to improve on this but it may not be possible)
