KS_WacomDisplayToggle

March 3, 2020
Portable utility for Windows and Wacom. Provides a keyboard hotkey to quickly toggle between display mapping on your tablet. For three or more monitors, gesture-based toggling is available.

Change Target Monitor:

Hotkey which toggles tablet mapping between two monitors.
For three or more monitors, it will activate the monitor in the direction you're moving the pen.
It also allows you to easily drag windows across screens.

Toggle Full Coverage:

Hotkey which enables and disables Full-mapping, where all monitors are mapped to the tablet at once.

 

Download

 

The application is free, but if you find this useful, consider supporting me on Ko-Fi. That will help me develop more tools and plugins in the future.

Tested compatability 

  • Windows 10
  • Wacom Driver 6.3.30-6

Info

This application is built using Autohotkey.
https://www.autohotkey.com/

The download includes the autohotkey-script file, and a compiled .exe-file for portability and does not require any installs to run.

License

Released under Open-Source GNU GPLv3 license. You are free to copy, distribute and modify the application under the condition it remains open-source and you document the modifications.

Configuration

If you wish to use the windows-key in a hotkey, check "WinKey" before assigning the hotkey, or else it will not be registered. You will need to restart the application for the hotkey changes to take effect.

The application is automatically suspended while the configuration window is open, to not create trigger hotkeys as they're being assigned.

"Ignore vertical mouse movement" disables measuring vertical cursor movement, to avoid the tool accidentally reading an "Up" or "Down" gesture when accidentally gesturing diagonally.

In monitor settings, you write the number-ID of the display you wish to toggle to for each direction of cursor movement registered by the script. The "force"-direction will bypass any movement detection, and toggle to the specified monitor regardless of pen movement. This is best used for setups with only two monitor, or for side-monitors with only a single neighbor.

If your monitors are configured like this:
[#3] [#1] [#2]
Suggested config would then be like the image above.

Autostart

If you wish to have this application start automatically when you login to Windows, you can make a shortcut and add it to the Startup-folder.

Create a shortcut by right-clicking the exe-file, and click "Create Shortcut".
Open the Windows Run window by pressing WindowsKey + R
Type in "shell:startup".
The startup-folder should pop open, copy your shortcut-file into that folder.
