    So perhaps I am missing something, but I tried working with Radial Menu, particularly the Toolbar portion of it and I cannot get it to do what I am wanting. What I want to be able to do is hold down a button in the toolbar (like alt for instance) and then use the pen. So I need to be able to use toolbar independently of whether or not the pen is already down on the screen etc. From what I can tell, it does not support this. At least, in all my tries I cannot get it to work this way.

    Perhaps I'm just crazy!

    Thanks Cleft for bringing this to my attention (and to CaptainPorcupine for good tutorial) - This is a wonderfull programme that does exactly whats needed.
    My Weapon of choice is Sketchbook Pro7 - Here´s my interpretation of a usefull touch toolbar for Sketchbook on Surface Pro 3:

    Some buttons are normal, some are toggle - where I find it usefull.
    The Icons are the ones from Sketchbook + some of my own making - Feel free to use and refurnish at will.

    Note: It takes up most of the space on one side in Sketchbook, so I move the "Lagoon" to the opposite side.
    Instruction:
    1: Move original "touchkey2_8_5_0" folder to C:
    2: Move downloaded "img" folder into "touchkey2_8_5_0" folder
    3: (Backup first) Replace "macro" in "touchkey2_8_5_0" folder with downloaded "macro"
    4: Run "TouchKey" programme

    Hello! I have the surface book and am trying to get one of the many toolbars to work including this one. I can only get touch key to work in simple mode on new surface book with i7, 16gb of ram, and dedicated nvidia gpu. If I try to pick surface pro 3 (I realise it's a different screen size, Yada yada) but I tried it thinking it was the closest and it was ntrig..ofcourse I get ano error in a language I can't read. I'm assuming it's complaining about not knowing the hid info. Anyways, the big thing I need out of this toolbar and a couple others is the ability to hold down the alt key while using the pen. Any help would be greatly appreciated from any of you awesome people so I can get up and running again with my art like I was on the pro 2.

    @Landis
    Did you have any luck with RadialMenu or Tablet Pro?

    @Iwan
    Can't be certain with the ativ 500t, but it's known that TouchKey works with Dell Latitude 10, which is the same generation as the 500t.

    @Iwan
    Yes TouchKey can do the same given that your device is fully compatible (eg: samsung ativ700t, dell latitude 10, surface pro 3 etc). You will need another good old app called TGuard to disable touch on Windows 8+.

    Be reminded that you will no longer can use any touch gestures (zoom/pan) or interact with the tablet without a pen, unless you enable touch again (by killing TGuard). Some apps like Manga Studio i.e. ClipStudio Paint don't register touch as brush stroke, so turning off touch to absolutely avoid stray marks might be unnecessary.
