V15 Driver Settings

After installing the driver and connecting your tablet to your computer, you're now ready to open your drawing or writing software. Well, not quite. There are times when you have to adjust some driver settings to maximize your tablet performance and usage. This article will help you understand the different parts of your tablet driver and their functions.


Pen Tablet or Pen Display

  1. Press Key
    By default, your tablet's press keys are set to Adobe Photoshop's shortcut keys. So, if you are using a different drawing or writing program with different shortcut keys, you may need to configure the buttons depending on your software's setup.
    1. Enable Press Keys - enable this to use your tablet buttons or press keys. Disabling or unchecking this will result in your tablet buttons not functioning. 
    2. Enable Soft Keys - this feature is available for graphic tablets with soft keys. You can enable this and use your pen to tap your tablet's soft keys to perform the functions you assigned to these soft keys.
    3. Dial Setting - you can refer to this article on "How to Set Up & Use the RaDial mode on Huion Inspiroy Dial Q620M and Mini Keydial KD100?". Other times, the "Enable Dial" option is also available, and unchecking this option will result in your dial not to function. You can set your dial to perform the following:
      1. Default - zoom in/out, adjust brush size, and scroll up/down. Just press the center of the dial to switch between these functions.
      2. Multimedia - choose this if you want your dial to move between songs or adjust the volume settings.
      3. Customize the Feature - you can set the keyboard shortcut to your dial to perform the function you want.
      4. None - choosing this means nothing will happen when you turn your dial to either direction.
  2. Working Area

        An option to use "All Displays" is only available for graphic tablets. If you have a tablet display, you can only choose one of the displays. It is recommended to select your tablet display and assign a button to "Switch Screen" to switch between different displays. 
    1. Work Area Options 
      1. Full Area - default (recommended)
      2. Screen Ratio
      3. Custom Area
    2. Monitor Calibration - only available on tablet displays
      1. Manual - clicking the red dots using your pen. Click the red dot precisely as you can.
      2. Restore Default - use your mouse to click this button to restore the calibration to default.
      3. Cancel Calibration - use your mouse to click this button to cancel the calibration.
    3. Rotation Settings
      1. 0 degree - default
      2. 90 degrees 
      3. 180 degrees - suitable for left-handed users
      4. 270 degrees

Digital Pen

  1. Press Key - this is where you can set the functions of your 2 pen buttons and your pen nib settings (valid or invalid). Setting your pen nib to invalid would disable it from functioning. More explanation on these settings below:

    1. Enable Windows Ink - only on Windows drivers. Enable this to 
    2. Mouse Mode - the digital pen behaves like a mouse where the pen's location on the tablet's surface is not relative to that on the screen.
    3. Game Mode - reduces the error caused by pressure sensitivity needed for certain games.
  2. Pressure Sensitivity Adjustment

    1. Pressure Sensitivity Adjustment - adjust the pen pressure sensitivity
    2. Pressure Test - the area where you can test your pen pressure sensitivity. 

Settings

  1. Device
    This tab shows your tablet model and firmware. You can also click the "Diagnose" button to test whether your tablet has any issues.
  2. Backup
    You can backup your current settings before uninstalling your driver, so you don't have to set it up from scratch. First, click the "Export" button to export your current setup and save the file. Then, after reinstalling the driver, click the "Import" button and locate your exported file. On the other hand, you can just click "Default Setting" to set it all back to default.
  3. General
    You can configure the following options from this tab:
    1. Language - as of this writing, there are 14 different languages to choose from.
    2. Color - you can change your driver's color from dark, blue, or light. 
    3. Start Menu - check the corresponding boxes to receive new alerts automatically, launch the driver when your computer starts (recommended), and alert you for automatic updates.
    4. Hotkey - lets you change your keyboard shortcut to open the driver interface. Just click "Restore Defaults" to use the default shortcut.
    5. Administrator Privileges - this button is only available for Windows drivers. We recommend you click this button to give our driver the necessary access to your system and can perform properly. Once clicked, this button will no longer appear, unless you've initially launched your driver with administrator rights.
  4. About
    This is where you can see your driver version, End-User License Agreements (EULA) link, Update Log, and the buttons to check for updates, uninstall the driver and send feedback.
