Hello, Rob!
I'm very grateful for this software, it is totally amazing. Thank you very much for making it, and keeping it free!

My request is very small and simple. There is a little inconvenience when I'm running a second instance of StrokesPlus (I'm doing it all the time). It asks me if I want to run it, and it won't work until I click "yes".

So I wanted to ask can you add an option to bypass this question, so it just runs when I run it? I saw that the latest update was in 2016, so I'm expecting you to roll out a new release after my humble request. But maybe there is something that can be done about it? Thank you for your time, Rob!

Thank you so much, Rob, it worked perfectly!
I had no idea you released a new version of StrokesPlus, these are fantastic news! Definitely going to try it out.

when it comes to conflicts between instances, I haven't noticed any. I'm using one for FL Studio (drawing with the Middle mouse button), and another for everything else (drawing with the Right mouse button, FL Studio.exe is excluded). Working great so far. If you have any questions about setting it up, feel free to ask.

Also modularity, extra engine(s). There's indeed (mouse) conflict between the hooks of S+ and S+, but not so S+ and S+NET (by setting cancel delay in S+ less than S+NET, and starting S+ after S+NET, drawing to trigger cancel in S+ would let S+NET sharing the same stroke button to kick in). I wish S+NET can run multiple instances too.

I think it's just people who want to have an extra stroke button, which is now built into But yes, not really the best scenario in regards to conflicts between the hooks.

What are the benefits of running more than one instance? Seems like there would be massive potential for conflicts. Very curious.

If you open your StrokesPlus.xml file in notepad or something, search for "HideAdditionalInstanceMessage"

It will look like this:


Change the 0 to a 1:


That will suppress the message.
