Dual Screen features - especially "Switch Screen" hotkey!
I received the new Huion Pro 24 4K model a few days ago and I'm enjoying it a lot so far. I did have a few concerns regarding using it in a dual monitor setup, and upon emailing support the options I was looking for were unfortunately confirmed to be absent. So I figured I'd put in a formal feature request here.
First and most simply, BEING ABLE TO ASSIGN "SWITCH SCREEN" TO A HOTKEY ON THE INCLUDED KEYPAD. I've always used the buttons on my tablet pens for two things: right-click, and double click. I've now had to replace the double-click function on the pen with the Switch Screen function, because I'm unable to do this on the keypad. This is fairly inconvenient in my workflow, as tapping twice with the pen is much less precise than double clicking with a mouse, but I need to switch screens often to manage windows and need quick access to the Switch Screen feature. I would hope this would be a simple addition, so PLEASE consider implementing this into they included keypad's drivers in an update soon.
Secondly, on my previous Wacom tablet, there were options to have the working area of the tablet change depending on which monitor is currently active. In short, this meant the cursor was accurate to the pen while drawing, but when switched over to the secondary monitor, moving the cursor across the entire screen used less tablet area and therefore required less wrist movement. As is, the working area on the Huion Pro 24 cannot be saved as a different size for each monitor. This means when I switch over to the other monitor, I have to move my pen across the whole tablet to use it and reach items on the screen. This is cumbersome due to the large arm movement required to reach the corners of the other monitor. Allowing each monitor to have a different sized working area saved at the same time would mean I can set the second, non-tablet monitor's working area as smaller so that I can use small movements like a mouse, then switch back to drawing with full accuracy.
I hope both of these features are in the cards for future updates. As a professional animator working with drawing tablets every single day, these small features make a big difference in my workflow, and admittedly I'm itching to have them back. I've previously only worked with Wacom tablets, and while I'm mostly enjoying the switch to Huion, small additions like these would make me much more eager to recommend this tablet to friends and co-workers over the competition.
Thank you for your time!
