Affinity Photo not working with Huion Graphics Drawing Display Tablet?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I have not long managed to get a Huion GT220V2 Graphics Drawing Display Tablet/Monitor. I have gone to use Affinity Photo (on windows latest os, and affinity version 1.6.5.135). When I put the pen to the display affinity photo changes the tool instantly to the background eraser tool. I cannot use any tool with my pen and display as when I try it just change the tool back to the background eraser tool? Has anyone else had this? I have even tried the beta version and the same thing happens! Anyone got a fix?

 

Thanks!

It sounds like you're using the wrong side of the pen. Try using the other end and you should be fine. 

Thanks,

Gabe.

Yes definitely got all the right drivers, I am an animator and use this tablet daily in other multiple software's fine. My pen does not have an eraser end. Only a pen nib end, if you want to erase you use the erase tool with the pen nib as you would a brush or pencil etc. It is only affinity photo that seems to have a problem.

I've had the same problem with a different Huion tablet.  I eventually fixed it while playing with the Windows Ink settings and deleting / reinstalling the tablet drivers.  Frustratingly, I've tried to replicate what I did but can't get back to the original problem!  The only thing I can think of that might help is to make sure that old drivers are deleted and don't hang around in memory  (they can be tenacious!).

Yeah, I have had a look at the windows ink settings but that didn't help. It seems as long as I keep the pen really close to the screen it can work. I will try re-installing the huion drivers later on, in the middle of an animation right now and can't be without my beloved pen and monitor ha ha!
