Hello everybody.

I am not sure if this is a bug coming from Affinity Photo or Windows or if it is even a bug bu here is the deal:
I know you can alter the hardness and size of the brush by holding CTRL + ALT + right click and if I perform the shortcut everything works as it should.
However, if I want to perform the actions with my pen stylus instead nothing happens. I only get this annoying white ring as seen in the attached picture.

My pen  (Wacom Pro L) is set to perform right click and it works. Only Affinity Photo seems to not get the right click input from the stylus...
Can somebody please help me? It slows down my workflow so much it really gets me angry and frustrated. 

Is there a way to set the shortcut combination to something different? I tried to find it in the settings but the only thing I can find for brush size ist [ or ] and that does not help me.

Thank you in advance for your help! I am really looking forward to it.

Best,
Gomorrah

Not sure if you are aware but we have now added a toggle for Windows Ink in Preferences > Tools. Disabling this will return the app to the previous functionality. 

thank you!

I am having similar issue also....with mouse as well as with pen.
With the mouse: I click Alt+right mouse button and I get a little double circle for hardness and width but I actually have to also click the left mouse button at the same time to get width or hardness to change

With Pen: I click Alt+right mouse button and I get a little double circle for hardness and width. Moving left/right/up/down does nothing and if I touch the pen tip to the tablet my computer gives off a bell tone and my double circle disappears and changes to a single circle. I have a "New Huion 1060 Plus" from 2016 so that might be the issue but I have updated to the latest driver that works with my tablet. I have absolutely no problem for zooming if I set a button to "z", I can touch the tablet and move back and forth to zoom in or out.
I only wish there was a way to reset the brush width/hardness key shortcut. And using the [ or ] makes such small incremental changes to brush size. Why would the "Alt+right button" be hard coded into the product while there are many others that users can change?

Kinda Frustrating.

Try to disable Windows Ink option in Affinity's preferences.
