Hotkey support for "switch screen" in the driver please

 Hello , i got a kamvas 22 plus, and it doesnt have hardware buttons. This is no problem becasue i use my keyboard anyways

But one function from inside the huion driver can only be mapped to one of my pen-buttons , which is "switch screen" so i can use my pen on another monitor, which would otherwise be mapped to one of the buttons on the monitor (but my monitor doesnt have any buttons). I need the pen buttons for middle and rightclick obviously.

now i always have to use the mouse to get to another screen , which is not optimal.

As you already have a working "global hotkey" in Settings -> Hotkeys, please add a second one with the switch screen function , at least on the kamvas 22 (plus)

i made a quick mockup , your programmers could probably do that in under an hour , the code already exists for 90% of this request

  • Hi Alex Mehler, thank you for your suggestion. The Switch Screen feature can only be assigned to either the pen or tablet buttons. The Hotkeys you show in your picture refers to the keyboard combination to launch the Huion Tablet driver. Thus, I'm sorry that you only have 2 buttons that you can configure for your Kamvas 22 Plus tablet since the tablet itself doesn't have any buttons. 

    If you need more buttons, our Kamvas Pro series have tablet buttons that you can configure.

  • Alex is right! This function NEEDS to exist and it would be so easy for your team to implement. I'm having such a hard time without it. PLEASE ADD SWITCH SCREEN FUNCTIONALITY FOR SOMETHING OTHER THAN THE PEN BUTTON!!!!! I just got the Kamvas 22 Plus and i use it for a few different 3D modeling programs. Switching between screens is imperative. I'm considering returning this screen if this is not addressed.

    There is another option I wanted to propose. What if you allow a keyboard button press in conjunction with the pen button? So, for example, you could set the Switch Screen function to Alt + Top Pen Button.

    I understand the current setup doesn't work, but your programmers should be able to figure out SOMETHING. Please help. I've been struggling with this all day. Thank you.

  • Hello, any news about this ?, It would be great if at least this function was enabled in devices like the "Mini Keydial KD100", so that it was worth buying.


  • Hi Francisco Meneses, you can assign the switch screen to a button on the pen or tablet. Please see screenshot below:

    However, I'm sorry to let you know that as of the moment, the Switch Screen option is not yet available when using the Mini KeyDial KD100. I will forward your suggestion to our software engineers so they can check the feasibility of adding this feature in our future drivers. Thank you for your suggestion! It is much appreciated!

  •  For everybody interested , i HACKED the driver !  Switch Screen is now back !

    you can find my script here :

  • hello everybody , i fixed this annoying problem with a little script , it puts "switch screen" on the capslock button on your keyboard , it actually works better than hardware buttons (these hardware buttons are crappy on every brand , even wacom)

    its a autohotkey script so you need to install the amazing autohotkey first.  

  • blub blub test test 

  • That's amazing, Alex! Definitely going to try this out. I've actually got the right mouse button assigned to my CAPS LOCK button right now haha. I've gotten so used to it I wonder if I can go back to using the button on the pen. Thank you for your efforts. Stoked to have the option again
  • Hi Alex Mehler, thank you for the update and for sharing your script. I have informed our software engineers about this as well so they can further look into this.

  •  Hi Darcy .. you can easily change the hotkey by editing line 1491 in script to whatever you like, and delete line 1443(which just disables the capslock lock). i used capslock becasue its useless otherwise.

    does it work for you though?  , its the first time i programmed something like this ... maybe it needs the exact driver version as mentioned in the github page
