  1. I have Affinity Designer for Windows and it is fantastic.  I have a need now to edit two documents at once.  I cant seem to find a way to either "split" the screen to show two documents side-by-side, or I also cant seem to open multiple instances in Windows 10.  Is there any way to work on two documents at same time?  I have an ultrawide monitor so I have plenty of space.

  2. It's tablet hardware/software, not program software, --sort of. 

     

    Photoshop will register tilt & spray, but an app like Pixelmator won't. I'm not sure about Affinity as I have a non-tilt registering Huion, and if I need a sort of calligraphic effect with wide marks in one direction and thin in another, I just choose a digital brush that makes those marks, or a spray-style brush if I want that type of mark.

     

    So even though Ps & Affinity may accept tilt marks, because I'm using a Huion, I won't get those marks with the stylus.

     

    The Intuos Draw is actually the equivalent of an older Wacom Bamboo. A few years ago Wacom confusingly renamed their product lines. The pro old Intuos is now the "Intuos Pro" but any others that aren't marked Pro are essentially Bamboos.

     

    I had a Bamboo 4x6" and while it was okay while I was learning to use it, it didn't map to my wider iMac screen very well, and the small size was as constraining as the tablet drawing area ratio. My Huion 6x10 maps so much better than my Wacom Bamboo ever could, and is also MUCH more responsive. I have very little desk space and use it on my lap, but I'm so used to it that I don't give the equipment any thought, I'm just drawing or painting.

     

    If you're just getting into digital tablets I honestly don't see any down side to getting a $60-70 Huion 610 Pro tablet before investing in something more costly. You'll have to commit a couple of hours for a couple of consecutive days to get used to drawing on a tablet while looking at your screen ---and twiddling keyboard shortcuts with your non-drawing hand. 

     

    I am a professional artist and I don't feel I need to change my Huion tablet for a Wacom Intuos at this point, because it works just fine. I might consider something like a Cintiq in future but I think stuff like parallax & color differences would make me crazy. 

    The new 1060 plus is not much more money.  Is it same as the 610 but with a memory card?

    Thanks so much for the explanation.  I am thinking the Huion 610 Pro is a good starting point as well.

  4. Your list includes some very different sizes. The Intuos Draw is quite small, with an active area of only 6.0" x 3.7" (similar to the small Bamboo tablets and my old Volito2); the drawing area on the PTH651 is 8.8" x 5.5", whilst on the H610 Pro and the INSPIROY G10T it's 10.0" x 6.25". The active area on Huion's Giano WH1409 is a whopping 13.8" x 8.6", which may seem like way too much desk space until you take into account the fact that it's wireless and therefore doesn't need to sit on your desk.

    How does this one compare to the 610 Pro Plus? https://www.amazon.com/Huion-Graphic-Drawing-MicroSD-Express/dp/B01FTE9HS2/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1481294204&sr=1-2&keywords=Huion+1060+PLUS

  5. I also have an older version of the Huion 610 Pro, I love it. Still works very well, and the size is perfect.

     

    The only thing to note, difference-wise from a Wacom Intuos, is that the Huion doesn't register stylus tilt. This isn't a problem for me as I've never drawn non-digitally using the side of a pencil, I'd just grab for a wide lead pencil or a wide brush, but if you naturally draw this way you'll likely prefer an Intuos.

    Is the tilt just a software issue with Affinity Designer?

    I assume the Intuois Draw is the best model? http://www.wacom.com/en-us/products/pen-tablets/intuos-draw
