Re: Everlasting Verve tricks thread

;) got it as well ;)

Now I think all important shortcuts are there.
I left thinks like fluids, brush size (Space+drag) etc as they can be controlled with UI quite nicely.
This it how it looks like when popped up.

Attached the final text file. I really do hope that it's useful for some of you ;)
I will exchange the file in first post as well ;)

Just one download??
Oh, it seems that it is a bit complicated?
So let me repeat and give you an example:

Find attached all you need to edit your Wacom_Edit.dat you can find in (C:\Users\Yourname\AppData\Roaming\WTablet\wacom_tablet.dat) .
I can't guarantee anything as I am using the old wacom 6.3.15-3 driver, but it should work.
I used free sublime text to edit the dat file. Much more easy!

-First make a verve specific pop up menu and assign one silly named function to make a search for it easy.
-Go to C:\Users\Yourname\AppData\Roaming\WTablet\wacom_tablet.dat
-Make a copy of the dat file as backup and save your wacom settings with the preference utility..can't harm.
-Stop the wacom service.
-Open dat with sublime (or anything you prefer)
-This is how it looks in sublime text with the verve commands already assigned in my wacom prefs.. (just the very first entries ;)

-With (STRG+F) you can search in Sublime text for your entry already assigned as a pop up menu for verve.

-unzip attached txt document and copy all.
-go to your entry with the stupid name
-Compare it with my text to see what can be overwritten, and what need to stay there and paste my txt into your wacom dat.
-restart the service again and if everything went fine you will have same executable shortcut list.
-you need to assign one express key to open the pop up menu.

Good luck!!

P.S. This way is also cool to copy a bunch of functions from one prog. to another in the wacom prefs ;)

Ahh - that is the place to find it in Wacom properties app.

and the assigned express key - right side - for pop up menu.

Whenever I am searching for a hotkey, I press just this one express key. As I made the names with the real shortcut, I can learn them quickly. But no need to, I could just click on the entry and the shortcut is executed. ;)
This makes it so super fast and easy working in verve!

I also assigned some custom buttons like numbers for the brushes, numerical + and - for zoom, as seen in puds thread

As I am using the old driver, I just have 8 buttons per window available. Wacom changed later to 25. Anyway some are fine, but most I am happy to have them just as pop up when needed.

But I am afraid, none of you is following me? :D

Re: Everlasting Verve tricks thread

Oh, no, you're doing something really excellent there, Knacki! I'm just hesitant to get myself into that, because things are still finding their shape in Verve and are subject to change. If I hook myself into this Wacom stuff, I might get complacent, you know. :P
So, no, no, no, you're doing great and I hope people pick up what you're giving there! :ob
Here to help! :D

Re: Everlasting Verve tricks thread

well, if all my stuff looks too complicated, one can just fill those things he wants in the Wacom properties for pop up by his own.
Almost no tutorials out there:

Or use Touchkey to create your own:
