windows – Use an Android tablet for drawing on PC while seeing only a zoomed in portion of the entire screen

I’m looking for a way to utilize my 10″ Samsung tablet as a drawing display tablet for use with arbitrary Windows 10 apps (like Photoshop, any pixel art tools, basically without hard limitations) with support for only seeing a zoomed in fragment of the screen, while the screen still shows everything without cropping/reducing the resolution only to what the tablet can show.

Because my desktop monitor’s resolution is 3840x2160px at 48″ and the tablet is 1920x1200px at 10″, I would like to be able to match up the scale and visible region on the tablet to that on the monitor, with a pinch-to-zoom gesture on the fly, so I can only work on a part of the screen at a time. Seeing the contents of the entire monitor on the tablet or having to lower monitor resolution to match the tablet’s is not very usable for drawing. With Teamviewer, I can’t figure out how to use it to draw at all – it translates all touches into drag motions for Photoshop, and it only shows the entire visible screen, without the ability to zoom in on a small part.

I don’t have any special touch pens for the Samsung tablet, and it this model does not have any special pen support. So I guess I’m looking to translate all touch as mouse clicks to PC.

Is there a modern piece of software for Windows 10 and/or an Android app to make this work?

grub2 – after updating to 20.10, cold boot up “freezes” with black screen and not seeing grub screen. Warm boot sometimes freezes

Ubuntu 20.10 only (not dual boot)
Dell XPS 13 9360
with TB16 dock
running two external monitors (1-hdmi, 1-dp)

Not ideal, but to get passed it, I have to hold down the power button to power off and then power on the laptop (while it is plugged into the dock). I have also had the same issues when the laptop is unplugged from the docking station.

I don’t have the link, but I did see one Google result that I tried:
add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
ubuntu-drivers autoinstall

But that doesn’t appear to have fixed anything.

Any suggestions, besides wiping and reverting back to 20.04?

suspend – Ubuntu 18.04: Screen not turning off or suspending when the lid is closed

I hope you’re well! I’ve been having an issue with my laptop, a Dell XPS 13 9370 running Ubuntu 18.04, where the screen does not turn off nor does the system suspend when the lid is closed. My laptop spends a lot of time in my backpack and this issue can cause the laptop to grow very hot very quickly. I’ve tried the solution using systemd, I’ll paste the complete file from systemd/logind.conf below. However, this still isn’t working for me. Does anyone have any ideas?

How to exclude some post from admin edit screen

I want to restrict which post appears in a user edit screen based on its role. The roles are mapped to category.

  1. I am trying to add some conditions at the time posts are retrieved so that only posts belonging to a specific category are shown in the edit screen.

  2. I am not able to find out the appropriate hook to fire. I tried ‘pre_get_posts’ and then try to modify the query which satisfies the condition
    if (is_admin() && $query->is_main_query()) {
    but to no use.

Gmail notification remains on lock screen after email has been read/deleted on another device

I recently switch from iOS to Android (Google Pixel 4XL). One problem that I can’t figure out:

  • When I receive an email, I get a notification on my device’s lock screen. Good.

  • If I read (and/or delete) said email on another device, the above notification remains (until I unlock my phone)

Is this just a deficiency in Android vs iOS, or is something not working correctly?

Thank you!

ACPI BIOS Error (bug) black screen

android – what do you think about that comment delete screen UX/UI?

There are two options…

1- Change the text to alert the user to what he is about to do ” Are you sure you want to delete, because, you will lose this information…” as an example. Then give the user two options: “No” / “Yes”. But in this situation, the user will probably click the “yes” option as Peter mentioned, because users do not read and are used to the “yes” as if it was a “Continue” action.

2 – Therefore having a screen where the user has an undo option would be the best solution in my opinion. In this case we wouldn’t need the screen A1 at all.

In the examples below I created a screen where the user is being asked if he wants to save. If he clicks “yes” he will only get an automatic confirmation message that the information was not saved.

The best option is a screen with a “undo” option… Option B.

I want to get some ground biography about these points and would be happy if someone would list some books and sources here, please.

touchscreen – Resize screen for Dead touch zone

I have Star N7189 (5.5″) with the lower zone of touch screen dead

Dead zone

The menu and back buttons don’t work,but the physical home button works.

I tried to press hard on the edges of the screen, I tried to apply a twist from the short sides as if it were nothing but a wet towel. I did the hard reset but it did not work.

Sometimes pressing dead area, the phone takes it as menu button

As well as replacing the screen what other methods can I try? Is there any app, launcher or trick to resize the screen usable only to the working area?

P.S. a few hours after leaving it in airplane mode suddenly the touch had this problem but I do not remember if I inadvertently placed something heavy in that area of ​​the cell.

accessibility – HTML Aria function not being read by screen reader – Bad design?

I’m looking into how accessible some websites are using WebAIM’s WAVE tool. Many websites nowadays use the burger menu symbol to indicate the menu (YouTube and Gmail for example) and often I see the Aria attribute being used to say ‘open-menu’ or something of that sort. However, when I test it with NVDA and hover over them, the screen reader doesn’t return anything.

For example here:

On the left is the burger symbol, a magnifying glass (for search) and text-links. NVDA only reads out the latter text-links when hovered over, but not the former two non-text symbols. The two symbols (burger and magnifying glass) don’t change colour or give any indication that they’re clickable when hovered over besides the mouse pointer changing.

Is the Aria label supposed to be function (or not function) this way or is this just bad code/design? Or am I just completely misunderstanding how a screen reader is supposed to function?
