Hej Stylus! V3 starts automatically, a folder with the application and presets file opens
find Hej Stylus! in /Applications/Hej Stylus V3/Hej Stylus V3.app
For Mojave Users: you will be prompted to allow Hej Stylus! to control your mac. Hej Stylus! needs this to function correctly.
Open system preferences/Security&Privacy/Privacy/Accessibility , click on the lock, enter your system pass, click on the plus icon and navigate to Hej Stylus! and you’re good to go.
Please note: We’ve changed our application host platform from Gumroad to Paddle starting with Hej Stylus! V3.2.0. If you owned V3 before check on your email - subject: We’re moving - please update right now! All instructions are in there.
FIRST RUN & PREFERENCES
On the first run you will see this screen.
You have options:
Continue your 14 days trial
Activate your already obtained License
Buy a license
Trial / Full vs. Free Basic Version
Note: When the trial period is done ‘Continue Trial’ changes to ‘Cancel‘. By hitting it you can enter ‘Free Basic Version‘. Only ‘Position Pull’ can be activated.
After choosing option two ‘Activate License‘ (see above) you have to enter your email and the license code:
Launch on Startup
Highly advised. :D
Deacivate on Eraser
…also highly advised.
Make your custom cursor color.
Define the Alpha to be less prominent.
Set to zero to have no indication at all.
If you're distracted by the bendy line
make it a stick! It only influences the Position Pull indication!
Auto Focus on Menu Hover
Hej Stylus! catches your cursor when moving into it's perimeter – it saves a click but can be distracting. If so: deactivate!
The Ruler has a configureable freehand detection radius.
Set it in the preferences.
Values between 1 and 250 (Pixels) can be entered.
(Change Value, press Enter)
How it works:
Instant drag – determines your moving vector and locks the cursor movement.
(The locking distance in px can be adjusted in the preferences.)
One click–locks one point of the ruler.
One tlocked and drag – draws a line towards/away from the locked point.
Second click–locks the second ruler point.
Two points locked - drag anywhere to make a line in the specified angle.
Points can now be dragged around for changing the ruler angle. Clicking on one of the points releases it, double-clicking releases both.
Pro Tip: Check ‘Deactivate on Stylus Eraser’ in the preferences – makes navigation with the backside of your pen and activated ruler easier.
Version 3.2+ is supporting custom shortcuts.
Click in the field next to the desired function and perform the shortcut as you want it to be. If it is refusing yours then try another one.
To assign a new shortcut press the x and record a new one.
Pro Tip: After setting up the shortcuts in Hej Stylus! quit and set up the desired shortcuts in the Wacom driver for express buttons or pen button(s). Big timesaver!

Save your favorites and send them to a friend. ❤︎
V3 NOT OPENING?
In some cases Hej Stylus! preferences seem to interfere with the new versions preferences.
Open Terminal app and enter: defaults delete com.eilertjanssen.HejStylus3
This will delete Hej Stylus!' preferences and make the new Version run properly.
GLITCHY POSITION IN ADOBE Ai / An
If your cursor seems to be glitching when using Illustrator or Animate try Wacom driver 6.3.20-11. This should solve your issue.
Unfortunately pressure-related issues arise when using this diver. We're in contact with Wacom – to make both functions work side by side.
Another possibility to overcome this issue is running Hej Stylus! in Root-User mode. Check it out here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204012
