Papertrail Autohotkey Script

Post by lemec » 07 Oct 2010, 09:14

Creates a temporary blueline sketch that follows behind your cursor - Use this to make "airsketches" with the stylus by moving the stylus around without touching the tablet.

Lines are non-permanent and are confined to a small region of the screen that follows your cursor around.

Use it take "practise swings" and temporarily make markings on the screen without affecting your canvas or having to undo/redo.

Doubletap ALT to toggle it OFF/ON
Hold ALT to rapidly fade out the papertrail
Doubletap ESC to quit (or see the green task tray icon)

Tutorial is here

For PC only.

Glad you like it.
I will try to make some sort of options menu for it. (fade rate, line width, line colour, region size)
