Surface pen eraser button sluggish in Photo, misbehaving in Designer

Recommended Posts



On a Surface Pro 3 running Win10, pressing the eraser button on the pen takes about a second and a half to register in Photo, and if I put the tip down before the tooltip shows the eraser outline it continues with the tool it was on and never switches to the eraser.  In Designer, pressing the button changes to the eraser tool while the pen is within a short range of the tablet, but as soon as the nib touches the screen it switches back to the previous tool.  The battery has recently been replaced in the pen and I've tested it in other drawing programs, so there's not likely anything wrong with the hardware.  I'm on the current versions of both programs.
