Thanks for the reply, but that's not quite what I'm looking for. 
Flipping the pen around is actually very cumbersome for me. Yes, if I 
turn the pen around and use the "eraser" then the previous tool selected 
by the "eraser" will be activated again. However, I need the "eraser 
tool" far more often than I would use a normal eraser, and so I would 
like a quicker way to change tools. In particular, I would like to do 
like in Xournal, where the "right mouse click" event activates the 
eraser. Also, maybe I'm just tremendously uncoordinated, but I drop the 
pen half of the time when I'm trying to flip around to use the eraser.
