This software is fantastic. Thank you!

One of the recent updates no longer allows the Wacom Ink pen or HP pen to work with this software. The pen does not currently support right click and drag at the same time... I'm working on having windows fix this, but in the mean time, any suggestions on how to get this to work again with my pen?

I got a Wacom Intuous, now I never used tablets before, so I have no idea how things generally/used to work.

But to make it work for me as is, I had to assign a button to change modes, from tablet to mouse, then the button to right-click acted as a right down (and hold) and I could draw a gesture and release the pen button.

I'm still looking into better pen integration in the new version of S+, but touch/pen stuff will be a little down the road after the core foundation of the rewrite has been thoroughly tested and stable. Working with Pen and Touch are a completely different beast and I don't want to do anything to interfere with how they work normally, which is the challenging part.

From what I've gathered, S+ has to be the single window which receives all touch and/or pen input, then is responsible for relaying every event if S+ isn't using it. So I have to be very careful to ensure I don't negatively impact things, especially when people have different screen resolutions/DPI settings/different DPI per monitor/etc. So it will be quite an undertaking in terms of ensuring compatibility.

Windows should have a fix for these drivers soon. There are multiple problems with the pen at the moment, NOT a replace for the mouse.

I completely understand. Keep up the excellent work!

Excellent news! After much prayer, and hours on the phone with HP, I have broken through their defenses and they have heard my plea to re-write the driver for the pen and modify the list of buttons for the pen to allow for middle mouse click with the side buttons.

They have confirmed that their engineering team will be looking into my case for the right click driver and the middle click option.

My requested solution was to allow the pen to right click while the mouse is hovering over the screen. Currently you have to press the side button on the pen, then while holding that in, you press the pen to the screen. This confuses the computer and messes up the right click and the right click drag for many applications.
