This is a feature of native Wacom drivers, that I kinda like (and it seems like [1] I'm not alone). However, I believe that the 'hover click' could just emulate a normal click (ie: the pen goes down even if it's up actually) instead of trying something more complex that applications may not understand.

I would like to see “hover click” initiate active buttons state; however, I'm not quite sure how to reword the WD to capture this subtlety.
