I can use the Surface Pen to move around the interface quite happily but it doesn’t register when I try to use any of the drawing toolsApril 4, 2020 at 7:22 pm #1995
OK, thanks for reporting. We will have to get a Surface Pro to test on for sure!April 4, 2020 at 8:09 pm #1999
Oddly, it also doesn’t work on the Surface if I use my Huion pen tablet either. Its all “just” Windows 10, so a bit odd. I will try from another machine later
Seems its just to Surface compatible for some reason 😢April 4, 2020 at 8:20 pm #2001
Updated the driver for the Huion and i am in business
Phew!April 4, 2020 at 9:37 pm #2015
Oh, that’s good to hear, Ross! Thanks for letting me and everybody know!April 4, 2020 at 11:12 pm #2030Josh JertbergParticipant
Hi! I think the Surface Book suffers from the same possible driver issue as the surface Pro. The pen wont work for drawing, only menu selection. However if I change the pen settings to recognize the pen as a mouse in some applications the pen will draw but only as a mouse, so the line has no pressure etc.
So excited to be using the Alpha! bummed the surface is having problems, I know these issues will get sorted though.
Thank you!April 4, 2020 at 11:52 pm #2035
I had the same issue on my N-trig based Sony Vaio Flip 15. The pen only worked as a mouse, with no pressure-sensitivity… But then I installed Wintab 64 bit drivers, and now it works like a charm! Try installing it. The link is below:April 5, 2020 at 12:07 am #2043
Try the wintab driver that I described above, Josh.April 5, 2020 at 3:38 am #2048Josh JertbergParticipant
It works! Thank you!! I had that diver installed, but I did repair operation on it and that did the trick. Thank you so much, now to do some animation..April 5, 2020 at 5:04 am #2054
Good to know I could help, you are welcome!May 4, 2020 at 1:17 am #2752Anthony MaioloParticipant
I am still having issues with not being able to draw using my pen or even my finger. I can only draw with a mouse. I have tried to install the wintab driver. I also restarted my tablet multiply times and even tried to repaired the wintab driver. I use Sketchbook to draw often and my pen works great there.
Here is my specs to my windows surface pro 3:
Surface Pro 3
i5-4300 CPU @ 1.90Ghz 2.50Ghz
Windows 10 Pro
Any help would be greatly appreciated! I am excited to use animation paper!May 4, 2020 at 3:41 am #2754
I dont know the specs of the surface pro 3 digitizer. Previous versions had N-trig based devices, which worked with wintab drivers. I suggest you to uninstal and revert all drivers, and search the web for the touch-related specs and the software needed to make them work. In other words, contact Microsoft…
