In Development : Wacom automatic monitor switcher

by
So I was talking to

and he mentioned something about this lil  app some guy made for bamboo tablets only that switches the monitor your stylus is locked to in pen mode with a hotkey or hitting the side of the screen with your cursor.

I looked at the readme, and sure enough, he mentions that the wacom control panel window needs to be open ^.^ Then my AHK hacking senses started to tingle. And about an hour or so later I whipped up a lil something that automatically switches the current monitor based on tapping the left or right sides of the screen with your cursor. It takes a bit of time to get used to though, because the moment it switches, your cursor snaps to the other side of the monitor next to your current one. So you gotta do this "pull back" every time you switch. It's not a bug or anything, just how the tablet itself works.

At the moment, I only have this working with my own Intuos2, based on it's control panel. I'm really close with the bamboo thanks to

^^ Still have to workout some tricky parts however. Another thing I want to do is make it to where you can hit a hotkey to switch, and also make a lil optional button popup at the side of the screen where your cursor is to switch.

I've always wanted something like this, just never quite understood how to make it work until I really dig into it ^_^

*imagines some software where at the touch of a button, both screens will all of a sudden grow legs and switch places physically!*
