Once the pen is in the pen-up position (which you can set from your computer before starting the session), there should not be any need to manually lower or raise the pen again while setting up different pens and papers, even during a full day of use. So, I’m not sure exactly what it is that you’re doing.

It is possible to hard code something like this into custom firmware if that’s your preferred way of coding. But, it is also something that could be done with a custom Inkscape extension, a modification to one of ours, or an independent script on the computer — without any changes to the firmware.
