    hey all,

    I just bought a refurbished HP x2 1013 g3 (wacom AES 2.0 MPP 1.51).
    With the recent wacom drivers (> 7.5.1-xx), I can't find any option to map the middle click on the side buttons of my stylus.
    On my Yoga 720 15IIKB with wacom feel driver 7.3.4-38, the option is still here.
    If I use the HP Rechargeable Pen on the Lenovo, it's recognized and the side buttons work as middle click and right cick. Unfortunateley I can't get 7.3.4_38 to install on the HP.

    It seems Wacom removed the option to map middle click sometime between 7.3.4-52 and 7.5.1-29.

    7.3.4-52 revA gives me right and middle click option, but I loose tilt sensitivity and there's an issue with the right/middle clicks sending 'scroll down' command when they are pressed, so I'm currently trying to find older drivers (>7.3.4-52 and <7.5.1-XX) to get the middle click functionnality on the HP x2 1013g3 (ideally with tilt and no issues).
    anyone had old drivers somewhere ?

    alternatively I'll have to find a way to remap the barrel buttons. TabletPro is not working reliably on HPs.
    any help is welcome. Thanks

    edit : just found this wacom component drivers page but no drivers fits my requirements :

    edit 2 : Nevermind, the side keys can be remapped with autohotkey (somehow it didn't work with HP's customized drivers, but it works with wacom 7.6.1-22) so everything is working fine now.

    Hello.
    I asked that in NotebookReview forum.
    But I have T902 and some others wacom-tablets.
    Can you explain this---
    edit 2 : Nevermind, the side keys can be remapped with autohotkey (somehow it didn't work with HP's customized drivers, but it works with wacom 7.6.1-22) so everything is working fine now.
    1---what is autohotkey? Is it HP utility or Lenovo?
    2---Where I can get wacom 7.6.1-22 drivers? (For some strange reason I can't open that wacom-link)

    it seems the Middle Click is back in the latest wacom Feel driver 7.6-29 (see the release notes, under 'Resolved Issues').

    if it fails, then you can try to remap the buttons using autohotkey or auto-it. refer to the documentation for in-depth explanation.

    TDLR :
    • install autohotkey
    • using the Wacom Driver, assign unused keys to the side buttons of the stylus (in my case, F11=TopBarrel button, F12=BottomBarrel Button)
    • create an autohotkey script to remap F11/F12 to RightClick/MiddleClick.
    • save the script with ahk extension (ie : remapbuttons.ahk) and place it in your auto-start folder ( %programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp ). Make sure `.ahk` are autorun with autohotkey.
    the script would look like this :
    Code:
    #IfWinActive
    F11::MButton
    return
    F12::RButton
    return
    note that you can also remap different keys depending on the active program like so :
    Code:
    #IfWinActive CLIPStudioPaint.exe
    F11::^!
    return
    
    #IfWinActive Teya.exe
    F11::^
    return
    
    #IfWinActive
    F11::MButton
    return
    F12::RButton
    return
    the script above detects if ClipStudioPaint is the active window, if yes, then F11 (my side button) become CTRL+ALT. if TEYA.exe is the active window, F11 becomes CTRL, else F11:MiddletButton, F12=RightButton. You can remap any key to any program using this structure, you just need to know the active window name/running process name, and use the correct autohotkey syntax (refer to the ahk list of keys).

    Please report back if you have a working solution.
    good luck.

    Hi.
    Unfortunately, it even doesn't install correctly driver. It gives the message
    "This utility requires Wacom Pen driver. " and http:// address Wacomfeel. Was Tested also with Fujitsu T725 (its own driver has 3 buttons)-- it shows 3 buttons but they are work incorrectly all don't work at all in some selection.
