Control PowerPoint presentations, Google Slides, Adobe Acrobat DC, Acrobat Reader DC, VLC Player, OpenOffice or LibreOffice Impress, record audio clips, take snapshots and image sequences from camera with Surface Pen! For all Surface devices compatible with Surface Pen it is possible to assign custom actions when you press the top button, for example opening OneNote or launching various other applications. With KeyPenX you can also assign PowerPoint controlling actions - go to the next slide when you click pen button once, previous slide when you double click and start slideshow, when you press and hold the button. Essentially, KeyPenX turns your Surface Pen into PowerPoint remote control! Unlike default fixed PowerPoint shortcuts for Surface Pen in Windows 10, with KeyPenX you can fully customize presentation navigation shortcuts, including starting slideshow. If you are an active Surface Pen user, especially if you are a teacher or a presenter frequently using PowerPoint and handwriting notes on your slides, it is extremely convenient way of advancing presentations using Surface Pen only. What is unique about KeyPenX? It is also possible to assign secondary actions when PowerPoint is not running. After presenting you don’t have to go back to your Surface system settings and change pen shortcuts to their default behavior. Even if you don't use PowerPoint for presentations, with KeyPenX you can control Google Slides in Google Chrome or Firefox browser, Adobe Acrobat DC, Acrobat Reader DC, VLC Player, OpenOffice or LibreOffice Impress. KeyPenX has embedded actions for recording short audio clips and taking snapshots from camera. How it works: - During the first launch KeyPenX makes a new sub-folder "KeyPenX" in your "Documents" folder and generates three shortcuts "KeyPenX-SingleClick.lnk", "KeyPenX-DoubleClick.lnk" and "KeyPenX-PressHold.lnk". - Follow instructions in KeyPenX main window and assign those file shortcuts to pen shortcuts in Windows system settings "Pen settings". - Define in KeyPenX secondary actions for situation when PowerPoint is not running - start OneNote, Cortana, Windows Ink Workspace, record short audio clip, take a snapshot from Surface camera or directly execute any classic app. Please note: KeyPenX cannot define pen actions for execution under the lock screen.
