Click and Tap
Would it be possible to add a functionality (as an option) to the tablets and screen tablets, so that secondary buttons (the buttons on the side of the pen) activate their functions only when the tip of the pen touches the tablet/screen (and the respective buttons of course). This is a feature that for example Wacom tablets have (they call it Click and Tap), and it is really useful because it makes the precision of the click for secondary buttons be perfect.
When disabled (in their brand), it works just like Huion's. But this way, whenever you want to use "right-click" for example (assigned to a side button), the precision of the click will be unstable because whenever you press the button with the pen in the air, your wrist slightly tilts making the pen tilt as well, moving the cursor and with that the selection. It's less than a millimeter, but depending on the application and the tablet size, it can make the input displace considerably, and ruin the experience. It's most noticeable in applications like Blender for instance, in which you need to use the right click for making some strokes in sculpting, and you need to make the on the air, making it impossible to use.
On the othe hand, if this feature was implemented, it would work while clicking the side button, and then making a stroke (or click) using the tip button (this is called clicking and tapping, for side button and tip respectively), then it would make only the side button's function work, while retaining the precision of the stroke that the tip is making as you precisely tap or stroke on the tablet (not in the air). And since you are using the side button, the tip buttons functions would be disabled while the side button is pressed. Since not even in a mouse, pressing at the same time right-click and left-click is possible (or at least makes only one work), it would be the same in the tablet, and no feature would be lost.
Thanks in advance!
