It's been years, what's new!?
« on: May 08, 2018, 05:17:48 pm »
Hey, I was an early adopter of tablet pro when I first bought my Surface Pro 4, it wasn't doing quite what I wanted and so I ended up going the route of plugging in a Wacom Intuos tablet, and disregarding the touch-screen/stylus stuff.

But now I'd like to see what's changed, but I thought I'd come here and ask first.

I'm a 3d artist, and spend most of my time sculpting (in 3dCoat, not Zbrush), I'm very tempted to purchase the wacom bamboo ink pen, but I have read many things about microsoft not letting you re-map the 2 side buttons, which is insanity if you ask me.

Even without the bamboo ink however, the lack of a proper right click, or middle click on the default stylus simply makes it impossible to sculpt.

Can Tablet Pro be of use now? I've seen videos with re-mapping the stylus buttons, though it looked to still be in development, how has this progressed?

Can I have a proper right-click on the stylus I got with my SP4? (by which I mean, none of that hold side button and tap nonsense)

Do hold-buttons work on the tabletpro UI now? ie, holding "space" to pan, and have it stop panning when you release your finger?

I would just install it again and try some things out, but I'd purchased Tablet Pro back in the day, and can't for the life of me find a license or any form of email aside from registering here on the forums (back in 2015!)
