Affinity Photo Freehand Polygonal Selection Tool Using Pen Tablet

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I want to use Freehand Polygonal Selection Tool to select my photo. Everything works when I use a mouse (Check the video I provide), but I can't close the selection when I'm using pen tablet. What should I do?

It works here on Mac OS 10.14.6 with a Wacom tablet.


MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) Mac OS 10.12.6 || Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 10.14.6

Affinity Designer 1.8.4 | Affinity Photo 1.8.4 | Affinity Publisher 1.8.4 | Affinity Designer Beta 1.9.0.2 | Affinity Photo Beta 1.9.0.199 | Affinity Publisher Beta 1.9.0.742

Hi @Krisna,

My sincerest apologies for the delayed response here.

Can you please confirm for me:

What version of Windows are you using?

What drawing tablet are you using?

Do you have Windows Ink enabled outside of Affinity? What about the setting within Affinity for Windows Ink, is this enabled?

Is it only this tool, in this configuration that you cannot 'complete' a selection with? For example can you draw a rectangle using the pen tool, with all 4 nodes successfully connected when using your drawing tablet, or do these also fail to join?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi, thanks for you response.

I'm using Windows 10 Home Single Language, and Wacom Intuos Ctl-4100. My Windows Ink is enabled in Wacom settings.

Yes, Freehand Polygonal Selection Tool is the only tool that can't complete a selection. Everything is fine with pen tool.

Thanks for confirming that, could you please try disabling Windows Ink in both Wacom settings, and within Affinity (Edit>Preferences>Tools). Restart the application then try again - does this resolve your issue closing the selection? :)
