9:38 PMMicrosoft Surface Pen Hot Key
As a Microsoft Surface Book artist, I know the frustration of not having hotkeys. Although your Surface Pen has buttons that you can use for things like opening apps, it has nothing for art programs.
I started looking for a programmable keypad that would allow me to use hotkeys, and I found this. It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but I was determined to make it work.
Here is how I did it:
Step 1: Download AutoHotkey, if you download it onto your desktop instead of in your downloads folder it makes it easier to run and set up the program.
Step 2: Create A Script File.
Right click on your desktop.
Hover your mouse over "NEW".
Select AutoHotkey Script.
Make sure that the name of the script ends with the extension;".ahk" or else the script won't be able to work.
Step 3: Create the Script.
#usehook ; on #NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases. #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors. SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability. SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory #f20:: ^z #f19:: ^v #f18:: ^mStep 4: Run script Right click on the AutoHotKeys Program Select "run script" and now you're done!
