To use PD1560 in left-handed mode, you should turn the desktop of PD1560 upside down in ‘System Preferences’ and make ‘Rotate Set’ as 180 degrees in GAOMON driver.

If you didn’t correctly set PD1560 into its left-handed mode, you’d only found the cursor moves opposite to the nib; the cursor doesn’t on PD1560 but on the computer monitor; the cursor gets offset from the center to the edges of PD1560. Thus, here give you some suggestions to set the left-handed mode correctly.

While setting, we recommend you to use the mouse not the stylus to operate. Here takes an example based on

System: macOS High Sierra
GAOMON driver version: 14.1.4

Solutions:

Firstly, make sure that GAOMON driver has been recognized by your PD1560.

  • Connect PD1560 to the computer based on macOS.
  • Boot the computer and then open the GAOMON driver interface

GAOMON driver shows 'Device Connected' in Mac--cursor offset in GAOMON

If the driver showed ‘Device disconnected’ in its lower left corner, please go How to Fix the ‘Device Disconnected’ of PD1560?
If it showed ‘Device connected’,  please follow the next solutions to set the configuration of displays.

Secondly, to flip the desktop of PD1560 in Mac System Preferences.

  • please click the Apple menu and then select ‘System Preferences’

Select ‘System Preferences’ from the Apple menu

  • Type ‘displays’ in the search box to find the ‘Displays’ menu and open it

Type 'displays' in search box to find 'Displays' menu

  • Now you may see a pop-out window named ‘PD1560’ and the other named ‘Built-in display’. Please only focus on the window named ‘PD1560’. There are three places you should notice as the following picture.

Select ‘180°’ from the dropdown menu of ‘Rotation’ and set Optimize for as PD1560 in the window of PD1560.

To set up the three places as in the red circles one by one:

    3. Select ‘180°’ from the drop-down menu of ‘Rotation’, then click ‘Confirm’ to save changes.

PS: if ‘Optimize for’ was not PD1560 but ‘Built-in display’, the cursor will get lag (also known as offset). Then the offset gap will widen from the center to the edges of PD1560 when you move the stylus.

  • Now the desktop of PD1560 has been upside down, but it doesn’t mean you can use the left-handed mode normally.
  • Please turn PD1560 by 180 degrees to let Express Keys on your right side.
