    The hover-click action of the Surface Pro and Vaio Z Canvas (and probably other pens) can be remapped using AutoHotkey. For example, it can be remapped to "Undo", or pretty much anything else that can be done with AutoHotkey. You can even remap it contextually, with different actions for different programs or do more complex stuff. For example, I use the script to quickly toggle with a hover-click back and forth between the eraser and the pen in Photoshop and PDF Revu, while it is used as a right-click in everything else. I couldn't do without it for a quick erase!

    A comment on Reddit made me realize that I shared the script on Reddit a while back but never shared it here on my beloved TPCR forum! So for those interested, you can download the short scripts from the first post here:

    Let me know if you have any questions! Cheers!
