    And here it is: my review of the Galaxy Book 12 for artists.
    It's been a tough job to translate and dub al the 30 minutes of the video. :D

    That was great thanks for taking the time to make the video. I was tempted to get a GB12 but chose to import an N9P 15" instead. I hope the pen experience is as nice on the N9P as it looks on your GB12. I also ordered a Staedtler pen to accompany it.

    Looking forward to seeing your workflow video.

    Being a 15 inches, I suppose it'll be even better. :D

    Hi,

    Here's a script to map the spen button to right click.

    - Install AutoHotKey (https://autohotkey.com/)
    - Copy the code below into file spen.ahk
    - Put file AHKHID.ahk in same folder (https://github.com/jleb/AHKHID/)
    - Double click on spen.ahk
    That's all

    I do not understand anything to AutoHotKey.
    I just peek usefull lines from script found in this thread and hack them to make it work with spen.

    Enjoy

    Code:
    SendMode Input
    SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%
    
    global PEN_NOT_HOVERING := 0x0 ; Pen is moved away from screen.
    
    #include AHKHID.ahk
    
    WM_INPUT := 0xFF
    USAGE_PAGE := 13
    USAGE := 2
    
    AHKHID_UseConstants()
    
    AHKHID_AddRegister(1)
    AHKHID_AddRegister(USAGE_PAGE, USAGE, A_ScriptHwnd, RIDEV_INPUTSINK)
    AHKHID_Register()
    
    OnMessage(WM_INPUT, "Work")
    
    Work(wParam, lParam) {
    
        Local type, inputInfo, inputData, raw, proc
        static lastInput := PEN_NOT_HOVERING
    
        Critical
    
        type := AHKHID_GetInputInfo(lParam, II_DEVTYPE)
    
        if (type = RIM_TYPEHID) {
            inputData := AHKHID_GetInputData(lParam, uData)
    
        raw := NumGet(uData, 0, "UInt")
            proc := (raw >> 8) & 0x1F
    
        if (proc <> lastInput) {
            if (proc == 8)
            {
                Click right
            }
            lastInput := proc
        }
        }
    }

    Thanks, I will be able to let you know over the weekend, once I finally get my hands on it. I think the Amoled screen takes some beating though, so the GB's have an edge there. I'm not sure the way I abuse screens would end well if I had an Amoled screen though? The GB is also more portable as well so it all depends on how you want to use it.

    I read the comments in the Italian version of your review, and I'm with you on the whole Wacom thing. I think both of the Samsung's are worth while alternatives to Wacom devices imho.

    Ooo, definitely trying this out. If it does work, then we have a way to remap the pen button to anything!

    Didn't know Italians were so politically correct.
