did something change or anything? My pressure sensitivity doesn't seem to be working (and it did in the past with other versions). I got the button next to "More" enabled and in the "More" buttons, under the tab Dynamics I have the size jitter set to pressure and 100%. Yet it doesn't change in size. And there is nothing wrong with my (Wacom) tablet, it indicates it does sense the pressure.

Photo (1.8 and later) now uses Windows Ink by default, on Windows. If you don't have it enabled on Windows and in your Wacom settings, and you've got the latest version of Photo, then check Preferences, Tools for an option to use Wintab instead. Or enable Windows Ink in the system and Wacom settings, too.

"Use Windows Ink for tablet input"

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Thanks, that helped!
I knew there was a hack for Photoshop users, because the same Windows Ink screws up the pen pressure in several case. Since my Wacom (Intous 3) tablet is already around 13yo, new wacom-drivers seem to have mess up more than fix. So I have a driver that works flawlessly, but doesn't have the Windows Ink option in it to disable it. So it is nice to see it is an option in Affinity which makes it a hassle free feature.

PS: why do I actually get blocky edges in my strokes? Mainly at angles around 10°. I have the Spacing down to 1%.

Thanks again.
