Problem with holding buttons on the Artist Pad
« on: February 03, 2016, 12:00:38 am »
Hello. I hope I can explain myself because my english is not great.
When i use Zbrush i have an Alt button on my artist pad to navigate. The thing is that i have to keep the button pressed with my finger to pan, but when i press it and put the surface pro 4 pen close the screen it "unprsses" itself for a second, but enough to become a very annoying problem when working.
Maybe I am doing something wrong, i hope someone can come up with a solution for this.
Thanks in advance.

Well, i got it working now. It seems like its not a problem of Tablet Pro but from the hand rejection of Windows.
To make it work you have to go to Pen Settings on Windows and switch it to left hand. That fixes the issue and makes the "hold" buttons on the artist pad work like a charm.

Hope this helps someone.

Grosher, this is true but switching the pen option causes other issues. un-wanted palm presses.
The other option is to use the modifier buttons to be 'toggles' press its on press again its off like how capslock works. This works however it requires a different thought process when working.

I wish there was a better solution.

I'm having lots of problems with this issue as well.  It's killing me in Photoshop when retouching.  When using the healing brush tool I need to sample patches of skin by pressing the alt key.  That can easily be over a hundred samples and the current solution to toggle the alt button slows thing down to an unacceptable level.  I'll try the left hand fix and hope not too many other problems come about.

I tested the right to left hand pen setting and it does take care of the holding button issue but adds a new dealbreaker for me.  The touch slider, using Frame(with R-drag), that I use for changing the brush size stops working when in left hand mode.  I switch back to right hand and it works.  Also the palm rejection stops working properly and your hand starts clicking on all sorts of things.  No good at  all.

I've tried setting mine to left as well, but still have no luck.  When i bring the pen close to the screen it triggers a click or something, and releases the alt button being held down.
