good day everyone! hoping to get some insight on a weird behavior i can't seem to figure out.

i've tried affinity software off and on for a couple years now and have always seemed to have problems. i decided to bite the bullet and buy the latest release instead of trying the trial once a year to see if the issues subsided. they are still present (very slow, processes remain in memory after program closure, no pressure sensitivity, etc), but i'll deal with those once i get this behavior sorted.

i am using a dual monitor set up. affinity photo remains in one window (my primary) and i have no need to break it apart into separate windows. i use an intuos pro tablet instead of a mouse. i use a button on my pen to switch be tween monitors. the problem is this: when i switch to another monitor, or essentially move away from the AP window without focusing on another window, the cursor starts wigging out and cannot center properly in the window, nor behaves properly within the AP canvas.

here is a video that sort of demonstrates what is happening:

once i create a new document, you will see the cursor jump sporadically and flicker at times. this is me navigating to my other monitor and back to this one.

i don't know if there's a setting i'm missing, either in wacom or affinity, that is causing this behavior. all drivers are up to date, and this is the only program on my computer that is showing this behavior. any thoughts as to what might be going on?

A couple of things that affect my Wacom are below, to work correctly I have to...

1. In Affinity, disable "High Precision Tablet Input" in Preferences > Tools
2. Switch off Windows Ink in my Tablet settings

You could try the above to see if it helps


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

the second suggestion seems to have worked, thank you!

i have my drivers set to have windows ink turned off by default for all programs unless otherwise specified, but apparently needed to add the program manually and turn it off.
