When using the Wacom Pen, you've literally got a pair of convenient, customizable…controls at your fingertip, the side switches.…There are a lot of different ways to employ this pair of buttons.…And you can get pretty creative in what functionality you assign to them.…In this video, we'll take a look at some of the ways these easily accessed…controls can be utilized.…The first thing I want to talk about is the buttons themselves on the Pen, and…there's a couple of ways you can address them.…A lot of people use their index finger, and that works pretty well, but some…people find that this rear button, it just cramps up a little bit when you have…to move your finger in that position to address that rear button.…
So the optional way to do it is to turn it on its side and then just use your…thumb, and there is not quite as much crimping in your thumb when you go back…and forth between here.…So it's different for everybody, and it just depends on what works for you, how…your hand is built, and what makes you comfortable.…
