WACOM pen and table causing a slow down

Recommended Posts

I put out a scream thread about Affinity Photo blushing lacking behind the pen 🤬
After some very helpful comments, and experiments I have isolated the lacking to the Wacom Intuos
But it doesn't happen when working with the Older Lightroom 5 (EDIT: I have notices the pen doesn't fully work after a file has be saved from Affinity .
WIN10 Pc -- plenty of power/dics sizes/ram and all that stuff
I use the pen only and none of the buttons -- eye/brain/fingers too old for all the fancy stuff . But I use the pen in the right hand and mouse in left hand -- as someone said "you have got to be sick!!" 😀
My main pen use is for Dodge/burn and similar
I use only a small part of the tablet --- no idea how/why some use the bigger ones (??)
I find most online stuff to detailed -- for artists mostly so far more complicated than I need --- do you have any links to share ? I generally use a basic round brush very similar to the Lightroom 5 adjustment brush

So the questions about setting up the Pen/Table to work with Affinity Photo
How have you set up your Wacon to work with Affinity ?
Is running the mouse and pen together likely to cause problems? I will do some testing myself in the meantime.
How do I know if the nib needs replacing ? Have replaced it a couple of times only because I thought I should .

Your open thoughts, ideas, and questions about your mouse and pen (problems) welcome
