Hello dear Forum,

I tried to draw with my Wacom Intuos 4 in Affinity Designer unsing the pencil tool in the software. The problem is that it is always drawing a staight line, even if I draw curved lines, using my pencil from my Wacom tablet.

If I draw with my mouse/cursor, everything works fine.

I also have Affinity Photo. There is no problem neither with my tablet nor with my mouse. Everything works nicely.

I think it must be a setting issue but I can't find out what I have to click on.

Would be awesome to get some fast answers, so I can start working today :D

Welcome to the forum ericodl :)

Do you also get this issue when drawing with the Vector brush tool?

Thanks for confirming. What happens if you go into the Pixel Persona and use the Paint Brush? Does Affinity Photo work correctly when using the Paint Brush?

In Preferences > Performance, what do you have selected under Display?

Pixel Persona is also the same!

As described, Affinity Photo works perfect.

Thanks for the screenshots. If you go to Preferences > Tools, can you try toggling High precision tablet input (experimental) to see if that improves things?

Hey Leigh! This worked! I had to set High precision tablet input (experimental) off!

Thank you so much for your patience :)

Hope this thread might help some other people trying to fix the same problem I had!

Not sure this will help but...


I have also had the exact same issue on numerous occasions; (It has been reported a couple of times in the forum)...It occurs in AD 1.6 and AD 1.7 beta...

I initially thought that this was a bug in AD/AP but when I watched this video over the weekend I am not so sure. (Video Link)...

With the issue occasionally  re-occurring; where the Wacom simply stops responding to movement and resorts to drawing straight lines (AD1.7 Beta)..really annoying but still...O.o

Previously I would close the App and re-open it with the issue gone..but I have also found that 'toggling' the settings (clicking on app icon or adjusting sliders) within the driver/pen properties; and/or adding the Wacom Apps directly to  the application tablet properties (something I do not normally do) can fix the issue without closing AD or AP....

NB

I disabled Windows Windows Pen and ink completely(hopefully!)...The issue that caught me out here was the fact that it's not simply a matter of disabling the check-boxes but also setting the values in associated dropDowns to 'nothing'


APh & AD 1.7.0.367 + Beta AD 1.7.0.367 | APh 1.7.0.367 + Beta AP 1.7.0.367
