    Sadly No....:(

    The Pen Mode that Basically disables Single Touch on the Canvas's of the Android Art Apps; Layerpaint, Artflow, & Sketchbook Pro....is still thus far only on Android.

    The most recent update to the Desktop Sketchbook Pro only recently just fixed the Mutli-touch controls, and they still doesn't work as well as the Android app.

    I would love more then anything to have this option added to major applications like Photoshop, Manga Studio, Art Rage, etc...but since Sketchbook Pro is the only art app on both Android and Windows....that would be the most likely app that would ever see such an update.

    With Windows 8 tablets starting to gain traction, I'm crossing my fingers the next update will bring Pen Mode.

    And better yet, rather than just turning off touch entirely in the program, software that recognizes your touch as only panning, zooming, so they are still useful input methods without a chance of ever leaving stray mark on the canvas.

    Although it's not perfect, I think the palm or touch rejection on Sketchbook Pro 6.2.4 is pretty good. Just testing it now on the Surface Pro, so long as the pen is close enough for the crosshair or cursor to be visible on the canvas, your fingers, knuckles or palm won't leave stray marks. And even with the pen put away, multitouch gestures for panning, zooming and rotating are recognized without stray marks either.
