Display toggle

Display toggle

The Display toggle feature allows you to work with your Wacom device on all connected display screens, or on one display screen at a time. On the Display toggle tab, you can select and deselect the display(s) to include – or exclude – in the toggle sequence.

After you select the displays that you wish to include in the Display toggle sequence, you assign "Display toggle" to a customizable component, such as a pen button. Then you can use that customizable component to toggle your pen cursor from one display to another.

Set up Display toggle

  1. Open Wacom Center.
  2. Select your device in the Devices sidebar.
  3. Select Display toggle.
  4. Important: Display toggle is only active when your device is connected to a multi-screen setup and the computer's display properties are extended (not duplicated).
  5. Select or deselect the box next to a display screen to include or exclude it in the toggle cycle.
  6. Assign "Display toggle" to one of your device's customizable components, such as a pen button, ExpressKey, or On-screen shortcut. See Customize your Wacom device for detailed instructions.
  7. Note: Assigning "Display toggle" to a customizable component is required to toggle the pen cursor between displays.
  8. Use the customizable component you assigned to "Display toggle" in the previous step to toggle between your display screens.
  9. For pen displays, you can optionally set the following:

    • Force Proportions: Adjusts the size of the active area to maintain correct vertical and horizontal proportions between your pen display and the entire desktop or display. Depending on your settings, some portions of the active area may no longer be usable when this option is selected. When deselected, the correct scale or proportions are not maintained.
    • Use Inset Area: Limits the active area to a sizing of 6 x 8 inches. If Force proportions is also selected, this sizing may be less. When deselected, as much of the active area as possible will be used for device-to-display mapping.

    For pen tablets you can optionally change the following:

    • Mapping: Press the Mapping setup button to change the mapping for your device.

Example: Using Display toggle

The following example describes the Display toggle setup in the image below. The example assumes that the user is currently working on the Wacom One pen display and that "Display toggle" is assigned to a pen button.

The above screenshot is for descriptive purposes; it may not match your screen.
If the user presses the pen button assigned to "Display toggle", the pen cursor will move from the Wacom One (1) to the full display setup (2).
The next press of the pen button will move the pen cursor to the last display (4), skipping screen 3 because it has been excluded from the Display toggle sequence (A).
One more press of the pen button will bring the pen cursor back to the Wacom One pen display (1). The cycle then repeats until a new Display toggle sequence is created.
Tip: The arrows along the sides of the Display toggle setup screen illustrate the cursor's movement between screens.
