The Paintbrush bugs out sometimes while I paint.

Recommended Posts

I paint in Affinity Designer in the Pixel Persona. Alot of the Time a bug shows up, its just a visual thing but it causes me to get headaches. When I paint the Cursor bugs at the spot where I start painting, it stays there and starts flashing while I draw the line. I later noticed it happens in the Vector Persona as well. I dont know what causes it. It just shows up, alot. Closing the Programm dosn`t help, when it shows up it just stays, I don`t have a method of getting rid of it. Sometimes I am lucky and it doesn`t appear. 

(I have a small Video of the bug but I can`t Upload it sooo)

I uploaded the Video. Its depicting the problem mostly correctly, it just didn`t capture the vivid flashing the Paintbrush produces when the stroke is drawn. The drawing Tablet is a Wacom Cintique 22qHD, the information on my Hardware are as follows:

- CPU: AMD ryzen 5 1400

- RAM: 16 GB DDR 4 2133

- 256 GB SSD 

- 3TB HDD 

- Windows 10 64 Bit

The problem occured with the 1.8 Update. Bevor that there was no such Problem. In the 1.7 Update was a diffrent problem, where the paintbrush stroke would bug out and would only draw short, straight lines. That one could just be fixed in restarting the Programm. That one never showed up in the 1.8 Update, but was replaced with the flashing Brush. I don`t know if these have a conection. Also all my Programms are Updated I run no outdated Software.

 

Thank you for your help!

Thanks for the video, unfortunately I don't have a Cintiq available to test this on, however I do have a Intuos Pro, but not seeing the flickering that your video shows. We did switch over to Windows Ink in 1.8, and that has been causing a few issues. 1.7 used WinTab which you can switch back to in Preferences > Tools and uncheck 'Use Windows Ink for tablet input'. Would you be able to try that and see if it improves your situation at all please?
