Activate Pen Shortcut in a simple way
« on: January 13, 2017, 01:26:19 pm »
1. Go to ''this pc'' if you cant find it do a search in the search box on the bottom left corner(Windows 10) Now open C. Right click outside the folders and files and create a new folder in C, name the folder Tablet Pro.

2. Now pick 1,2 or 3 ini files you want to use as pen shortcuts and paste them in the new Tablet Pro folder you just created. They can be files you have made or premade ones.

3. I have attached a link with a premade shortcut called Medium Template( https://www.dropbox.com/s/luzjsnnoja7icnd/Medium%20Template.lnk?dl=0 ) Download this template and place it on your desktop, it can be moved later.

4.Now right click on the Template and click on Properties on the bottom, next click on the Shortcut tab, under this tab you will see a text ''Target'' to the right of it you will see a path that looks like this

"C:\Program Files\TouchMousePointer\TouchMousePointer.exe" /show /artistpad-medium /layout C:\Tablet Pro\Paste the name of your ini file over this text


Now replace this text Paste the name of your ini file over this text
with the name of one of the ini files you pasted in your new Tablet Pro folder

For example if your ini file is named Photoshop.ini your changed text should look like this

"C:\Program Files\TouchMousePointer\TouchMousePointer.exe" /show /artistpad-medium /layout C:\Tablet Pro\Photoshop.ini

Click apply, to test if the shortcut works dubble klick on the shortcut, it should open and load the ini file. If it does not work retrace previous steps. Now you can also change the name of your Shortcut to Photoshop shortcut for example.

5.To make more shortcuts copy the first one you made and replace the last file name with one of the other file names you pasted in your ''Tablet Pro'' folder

6. The template i made is made for medium presets, if you want to use a large preset or a small one this is easy to change. right click on the shortcut, click properties, then click on the shortcut tab. You will see this text

"C:\Program Files\TouchMousePointer\TouchMousePointer.exe" /show /artistpad-medium /layout C:\Tablet Pro\Paste the name of your ini file over this text

If you want to use a large or a small preset change the name of artistpad-medium to artistpad-large or artistpad-small.

7. To load the shortcuts to the pen, go to pen settings, if you can't find the pen settings do a search in the search box in the left bottom corner,once opened  scroll to the bottom, here you will see settings for the pen shortcuts, pick ''Lauch a Classic App'' in the top box then click on browse and load one of the shortcuts you made on your desktop, repeat the steps with all 3 shortcuts if you need more then one.

8. If you are using a surface pro 4 make sure you have Bluetooth on and that your pen is paired, if Bluetooth is off or the pen is not paired the buttons on the pen will not work.

Hope this helps!
