Application-specific settings

Application-specific settings

Settings assigned to customizable components (ExpressKeys, pen buttons, etc.) can be further customized for a specific application. This makes performing functions in the application faster and easier.

Tip: Customizable components that you can create application-specific settings for include ExpressKeys, pen buttons, the pen tip, Touch rings, Rocker rings, On-screen shortcuts, Touch & gestures, and Touch strips, depending on your device.

The Application list at the bottom of Wacom Center's main content area allows you to add individual applications, and then tailor your customizable component settings for that application. For example, if you select an application icon and change the pen's settings, the changes will apply to the pen only while you are using that application.

Application-specific settings can be used with all Wacom devices, and with the ExpressKey Remote device.

Note: When Application-specific settings are added, the All icon changes to All other applications and an application icon is displayed for the newly added application(s).
