    Hum, I tried reinstalling everything, both AutoHotKey and Artdock 2.0, but I still have the issue.
    To be clear, I am using dpi set to 150 (sometimes 125, but never 100).
    To do so, I added the "GUI -DPIScale" in the .ahk file.
    What happens now is that, if the artdock is in its original position (top left in 2.0), as soon as I move it (I prefer the left bottom part of the screen, and btw I'm used to move this interface a lot according to which tool I'm using), when the pen goes over it, it starts flickering, and disappears very soon.
    At this point, as TGuard is enabled, I'm not able to use touch neither the pen (for some reason the pen too stops to take inputs): the only touch gesture I'm allowed to use is the one that allow me to slide the win8 properties bar on the right and shut down/restart the surface pro.

    I wanted to install a more recent version of AutoHotKey to be able to not resize the ArtDock when using different dpi settings (at 150 the ArtDock is giant), but for now I believe I will go back to the previous version of AHK.

    Thank you again!

    Artdock 2 seems to have fixed the touch issu while pen sensor is near, hopefully.


    Now, some questions:

    1- Can you integrate a zbrush dock into the new verson too? WOULD BE AWESOME!

    2- What does the "posMonitor" and "Delay" options stand for in tGuard?

    - the "sketchbook" one should work for everything except PS. Photoshop has weird undo/redo, so it has a unique icon. Ill try zbrush to verify.


    Just tweaking options for how Tguard works. I wouldn't mess with it unless you're having errant touches.

    Alright, man thanks!

    Actually now im not sure if the "posmonitor" default position is on or off. Can you tell me?


    Also, Im having this weird behavior with tguard: When I set to touch off, nothing works with finger-touch except the artdock itself, and the pen only works within the tool bar.

    Now, when I set to touch on, the pen works everywhere, but I still cant touch a thing except the artdock.

    Ideas?

    Use the windows button to pop in and out of the start screen. Then try it.

    Thanks, will try that!

    And about the default posmonitor, do you know if it~s "on" or "off"?

    greetings DoctorBunsenHoneydew;

    new member here, and its been a delight using your version of artdock for photoshop. :)
    needed quite a bit more keyboard shortcut keys though for the work i do with it,
    so i edited your ahk file and now can completely go almost keyboardless and use the SPro
    sketchpad style now.

    was just wondering if i could post an edited version of your dock here and in a personal site
    ( of course will add in your credits and the ones that started the artdock )

    thanks for this great tool :)
