    Which would be fine if I used Firefox --- I need selection to work in Edge, Windows Explorer and everything else --- inconsistencies such as you describe do not make for a usable system.

    ...I can see that can be annoying. All I meant to say with my post is that the 1903 update does not make the GB12 explode and there are no major bugs. It does not solve that problem indeed. I suspect that won't ever happen unfortunately. :-( (I don't regard it as a bug because it was an intentional change ffrom Microsoft, that doesn't mean I don't recognise it can be very annoying)

    Would you be happy to have text selection work when pressing the pen button while hovering? I think that can be achieved in most programs modifying the scripts published a bit earlier in this page (the difficult part is UWP apps like edge, where you need to constantly sync the mouse position to the stylus. But it's doable if enough people are interested). It won't work for Word or Excel for some reason, though.

    The Staedtler Noris Digital Stylus which I prefer to use, and which I bought bundled with my machine doesn't have a button.

    I upgraded to 1903 last week and it's running fine. I love the new Light Mode. All the new UI changes makes it feel like I have a new device! It seems that battery life is a bit less, but that is totally subjective and based only on my unmeasured observations.

    Hi fotd, sorry for bothering you again.

    In the end, I've settled with using the Cinema Mode all the time (I have somewhat reduced color perception, and Cinema Mode is the only way I see decent colors without having the impression of looking through a dirty glass).

    If you have time, would you have a color profile for Cinema Mode (standard 100% brightness, D65 color temperature) to share? These months I've been scouring the web for Galaxy Book profiles, but there's basically nothing (as far as I could find).

    Thank you once again for the Basic and Photo profiles you previously shared.

    Hey.

    Has anyone succeeded in remapping the "pen button click and drag on screen" action?

    Its default behavior is apparently "eraser" in any applications, and I was trying to get it working like Wacom "pan and scroll" behavior.


    I read through this thread and found the "pen button click while hovering", "pen button long press while hovering", and even "pen cursor flicking while hovering" remapping script (http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/thr...-discussion-thread.71795/page-375#post-528538 and http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/threads/samsung-galaxy-book-discussion-thread.71795/page-223), but had no luck finding that particular action.


    "Pan and scroll" behavior, for Clip Studio that I use, is "Hold spacebar while dragging with the pen".



    Don't need to be a complete .ahk file, just the simple workthrough on how can I modifty the existing script file would be really appreciated.

    Thanks!

    The fact is that ahk and ahkhid do not block the input, so actions like "pen button click and drag on screen" that already have a default behaviour (usually eraser, indeed) cannot be remapped. You could make "pen button click and drag on screen" act as eraser AND something else at the same time, but that doesn't seem very useful ;-)

    (For the same reason the scripts earlier in this thread must be used once you setthe pen button action no "None" in the Galaxy Book Settings app.)

    Welp, that's a bummer. Thanks for the well laid out answer though (and for your script too!)

    I've been using a refurb 4GB Tab Pro S for a couple of years and looking to upgrade to a Book 12. I think the 8GB/256 model should be able to handle my light 2K video editing needs. What's a good price range for a used or refurb with those specs?

    I'm going to need a backup charger once I get it. Anybody found a better solution than buying the OEM replacement from Samsung?

    Thanks!
