Pen doesn´t draw until I drag it.

Postby Plantara » Mon 20. Aug 2018, 02:11

Sometimes my pen will work properly, and sometimes it doesn't.

The problem is > I put my stylus on the tablet and it wont draw, just until I move it a a certain distance, ink will appear, this limits me from doing small lines since, for lines to appear, I have to drag it away from the starting point.

This happens in every drawing program, I am not sure if its a shortcut or something I set up by accident, or anything else, It has been driving me crazy for the last months, restarting my computer doesn't fix it either, the problem just comes and goes and I have no idea why.
Please help me!

Which OS is this?
Windows? Then please check if unchecking "Use Windows Ink" in the driver helps.

Pen pressure is working just fine, the problem is after placing my pen down and pressing it wont do anything, after moving my pen a little bit then the line will start off, like a certain distance away from where I started.

Kind of like this:

Starting point is when I pressed my stylus on the tablet.
(Starting point) (Blank space)(Line finally starts)

Is this it the visual issue you are referring too?
