Just Wondering A Couple Of Things

Recommended Posts

How do you guys draw on your Surface Pro 3?

I mean I have trouble since I am using Paint Tool Sai and every time I want to transform something I need to attach the keyboard and hold control while I drag with my pen.

 

Do you have a way of keeping the keyboard underneath you? Or an extra button?

You can fold the keyboard cover beneath the screen while you draw. This can be awkward as you have to unfold it and refold it, but at least it will stay connected.

 

I recommend a compact bluetooth keyboard that you can keep within arm's reach as you draw.

 

Another alternative is an on-screen toolbar like Toolbar Creator or RadialMenu. Check out my posts on the subject over at SurfaceProArtist.com.

Is it possible that one of the buttons on the pen could be mapped to do what needs done? Just a thought, and seeing that I do not have an SP3, I might be way off base.

Pen button remapping is one of the features that's still missing from N-Trig devices like the Surface Pro 3.

I use a Logitech K810 bluetooth Keyboard when I work. I put it behind my SP3 so I can have my unused hand on it while my SP3 is closer to me.
