Fast stroke does not work, Bamboo ink, Yoga 720-15, ZBrush

Next problem with Bamboo ink and ZBrush.
Legacypeninteractionmodel fix is enabled (otherwise the setup would be completely unusable).

When I do a quick stroke in any direction, the drawing stroke is ignored. Instead, a popup occurs saying:
"nach unten ziehen" for down movement
"nach oben ziehen" for upwards
"zurück" for right
"vorwärts" for left (you guessed it, I have a german installation)
These sound like some swipe gestures - I disabled what I could, but cannot get rid of this. Slow strokes work as expected.

In the windows drawing app ("Windows Ink Arbeitsbereich - Skizzenblock") everything works OK.

Any idea?

Sounds like Windows is trying the use Flicks.
Try the following:
    Open the Control Panel
    Open the Pen and Touch
    Click on the second tab - Flicks
    Uncheck the box

I have the latest windows version 1803 and it seems the switch for controlling the flicks disappeared in that version.
To be sure, which windows version are you referring to? "Pen and Touch" does not exist in 1803.

That seems to be correct. I checked again today after running updates and it seems to be missing. Other users are reporting issues to Microsoft.

So what is your suggestion there? The threads you pointed to refer to more or less related problems, none of which were solved if I see it correctly.

OK, did some research.

Flicks are described here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/window ... s-gestures

And here how to switch them off:
https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/window ... -flickmode

The HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Wisp\Pen\SysEventParameters subkey has an entry called FlickMode that indicates whether pen flicks are enabled. I set this to 0 and the problem seems to be solved.
