Hi All,

I recently purchased the whole suite of otherwise excellent Affinity applications for Windows and have been having major trouble getting any of them to function with stylus input on a Cintiq Pro. The usual support response has been turn off Windows ink. Well above are my findings.

As you can see various combinations produce differing results with "windows ink" turned on in both Affinity Preferences and Wacom Tablet Properties.

Line quality wise the only acceptable is with Windows Ink ON in both Wacom and Affinity preferences however the caveat is that anything requiring a single "tap" (such as with the Patch tool etc) doesn't function and you have to grab the mouse. Without Windows ink on in Wacom you get no pressure and with one or the other on you get "tap" functionality returned.

This is the same across all 3 apps with Designer being the worst due to the amount of "tapping" required. All lines were created with Comics G Pen brush

I am using the 1.8.3.461 builds.

Hopefully this is something that can be rectified with the next update.

Thanks,

Rob

Hi Rob,

This is currently a design choice however we are looking into possibly changing this in the future.

Thanks

This issue is critical for digital painting.     @Callum


The more restricted you put on the program, the closer you program is to idiot.

Yeah I agree as they stand right now the apps are pretty much useless for illustration and digital painting with a stylus. Functionality with a mouse is great for DTP, photo editing and simple design. Stylus work is a choice between poor performance or poor workflow

It is a design choice that needs serious consideration to be considered a fully featured application suite.
