    For the version I made, I docked it permanently to the left side, and removed the drag bars to make it as simple and consistent as possible.

    Yeah you might want to try the original ArtDock in the meantime, while I get a lefty version going.

    Thanks, I will try that one for now. Is there a large difference between yours and the other one?

    Mine is super minimal, whereas the original has a ton of buttons.

    I would like to 1st say thank you thank you for changing the org script into this one it is 95% perfect for my use. I am a zbrush user and it would be super great if you can tell me or post a file where I can place the dock anywhere on my screen Please it would make my day.

    I am using the New Samsung Ativ smart pc pro and it is an 11.6 display so I need to have my thumbs a little higher. The attached file is used my new tablet and your setup to model I thought I would share. But from artist to another if you can sett it up to be placed anywhere I could move a lot better when modeling. If you could help it would be great. Thank you again.

    Glad you find it useful :)

    This coming week, I'll add a small handle that will allow you to move the window around. It will always default to the corner position, but you can move it anywhere after that. Would that work?

    ok, updated the script.

    on the newest version, you can drag the window wherever you want by dragging the ps/sai/sbp/zb button.

    Strangest thing, after I installed AutoHotKey and the script, everything was working great. I shutdown the Surface Pro and went home. When I booted it back up, my touchscreen would stop working after I logged in every time. I had to Reinstall the OS to get it working again. Tried it out one more time and same thing happened. So not sure why since it is working for others. So no Artdock for me at this time. :-(

    On windows 7, you can dynamically turn touch off and on, but on windows 8, they changed it so you have to restart for the change to take effect.

    So if you "lost" touch, all you need to do is open art dock, press the enable touch button, and then restart.

    Sorry you though you had to reinstall, because that's totally unnecessary.
