Affiny Photo - Paint Bush Bug With wacom tablet/mouse Windows

Recommended Posts


I have run into an annoying issue when using the paint brush in affinity photo with a Wacom tablet on windows 10. 
Attached is a gif of the issue, but to describe it, each time I try to paint some areas I cover with my bush don't get any colour added, and then i get some weird graphics glitches where areas I have painted are removed. 

Im using the latest version of Windows 10 and affinity photo.

That looks like you're zoomed in quite far. What is your current zoom setting?

As for not getting color added, what brush are you using, and what are its settings? Can you show us a screenshot of your complete UI, including the Navigator panel?

not sure why seeing my settings would change what is clearly a rendering bug but here ya go. In the gif that is not me zoomed in all the way its just a portion of my screen.

Hi @PattyQubed,

That looks like a pressure issue to me - most likely a very light pressure not being correctly detected by the tablet. Does this happen if you increase the pressure?
