Keeps switching to the eraser tool

Recommended Posts

I'm on Windows 10, drawing with a Huion 22in drawing monitor. In Affinity Designer and Photo, every time my stylus approaches the screen, the eraser tool is activated. This'll happen several times while trying to select another tool. Clip Studio and Photoshop don't seem to have this issue. Thanks.

Hi @Nixart,

I know this sounds obvious,but  what you're describing happens when you use the eraser end of the pen, instead of the tip. 

Thanks,

Gabe.

A quick google search shows that many others have this issue in other apps, which led me thinking it's more of a driver issue. We don't have that model of Huion here, but it looks like there's an option in Huion Preferences to disable "Eraser Detection". See if yours has that option and if it works.

@Gabe I cant believe I didn't think about the obvious :D. I rarely use the buttons on my stylus pen and forgot that the driver automatically has the SWITCH BRUSH option activated on the stylus pen. Needless to say "problem solved". Thanks for triggering my brain to think :) properly.
