Use the Pen Tool to use CTRL, ALT or SHIFT modifiers or keyboard shortcuts by pressing the side or Bluetooth button on your stylus while working in Photoshop, OneNote, Zbrush, Krita, Blender, Maya, Sai, Clip Studio Paint, Rebelle, Sketchbook, Blender, Expresii and many others by changing how the Pen works. Surface Pro 7 and Microsoft Surface Book 3 compatibility added! *(NOT compatible with Surface Pro X) *New feature update! "Quick input mode" - press and hold the bluetooth button to open the quick input mode or "ctrl+shift+\" and "ctrl+alt+\" will open the input panel per button. Click location can be used with keyboard shortcuts Alt + (Shift)+1-6 "Multiple *.ini presets per application preset" - use a keyword to create a drop down of presets to choose from per application (example - OneNote allows you to choose from a list of presets with the keyword "onenote" in it) Alt up, down and right allow you to navigate with the keyboard "Tap to unlock" - This option let's you use modifiers in programs that have a conflicting setting. When you turn on this option the button will turn on the modifier until the pen is used. Tap the side button to turn on the modifier, use the pen, when the stylus tip is lifted the modifier will turn off. "Auto Switching" - Automatically switch what the buttons do per the active program window. You can also LOCK the setting to keep auto switching from happening. In the LOCK state a single click on the Pen Tool icon will launch the current settings for the active (top most) window. "Smart Modifiers" - Tap to use a modifier, hold the button to switch to the next modifier. The modifier will stay on until you use the stylus or for 2 seconds. "Sticky Mods" - Like the Windows Accessibility feature that allows you to press one key at a time to perform hotkey combinations (not exactly the same) this feature turns on and off per application. It allows you to use touch gestures in combination like "ctrl" then "s" to save a file. "Click Location" - In the input mode "Advanced" you can choose to click a location on the screen with the stylus side button. Click - and then drag from the "location" button to the desired screen location. It will map the side button to that location. Up to 6 locations can be mapped to a single button. The Pen Tool has EXTRA features built in to manage switching and editing, not only the side button per program, but Tablet Pro preset modes. If you are looking for the Artist Pad (on-screen touch keyboard shortcut panel) from Tablet Pro please go to our website to install. Some of the extra features require Tablet Pro to be installed. We hope you see this as a benefit that is available to you. Super fast hover color picker for Photoshop and other programs that use Alt for color selection, choose "Alt + L click (H). We added an intelligent Screen capture tool that allows you to screen grab and paste with a single button. The Pen Tool now automatically can change what the pen/stylus does when a specific program is open. If you have a program that doesn't have a keyboard shortcut you can easily program the Pen Tool to click between 6 screen locations with a single button. (great for swapping back and forth between tools like a pencil and eraser or two types of brushes!) Use ALT + 1,2,3,4 to click those locations when not using the pen. If you want to purchase a stylus built for artists, check out our website. Please send feature suggestions or bug reports to This app won't work if you are in Windows 10 "S" mode. (this is a restricted mode) It does support normal Windows 10 and 11. The Tablet Pro Pen Tool has been updated to work with more than just Surface devices (Surface Pro, Surface Go, Surface Book) to change the function of the side button on the pen. You will want to use this in conjunction with any Windows Ink applications in the Microsoft store or Windows 10 or Windows 11 desktop programs. Great for drawing apps, writing notes, brainstorming and whiteboards. We now include support for Dell active pens, Renaisser Raphael "R520" stylus and allow for you to personally setup pens and stylus from other manufacturers. Support for HP, Lenovo, Wacom and other brands of stylus are likely possible at this time. Please download the trial and test if your device is compatible. Input a custom keyboard shortcut (like "ctrl + z") to perform an "undo" command in your favorite note taking app like Microsoft's OneNote. Select between modifiers or enable hover right, left or middle click. Great for use in Zbrush, Photoshop, Affinity Designer, or any program drawing or art program where you want to add extra functionality. The tool also supports two button pens like the Wacom bamboo ink and Dell Active Stylus. Please test the free trial and make sure this works for you before purchasing.
