    Thanks a lot Acute,

    Please try this workaround and let me know how it goes! Do this: Find the file “qt.conf” (probably here C:\Program Files\Animation Paper\qt.conf). Delete it or rename it (to save it). Then launch Animation Paper again.

    This will force Animation Paper to use Windows Ink, which is probably what is needed.

    Amazing! Thank you, this is an excellent workaround.

    I can tell it’s still not doing the full range of input handling that I get in Sketchbook, Clip Studio, and Concepts (all those programs also seem to do some degree of taper based on speed as well as pressure), but now it’s legit usable!

    THANK YOU!!!

    (Consider a future feature request is to also have a touch rejection mode toggle, so fingers only ever do panning, zooming and rotating or manipulating selections, and the pen is required to draw/erase.)

    You’re most welcome.

    I haven’t tried it my self on a Surface, but I was under the impression that the fingers WAS automatically only used for panning/zooming/rotating – not drawing. I will investigate this and make sure we add such a feature as you suggest. Because it must be annoying without it! 😉 Thanks a lot for the heads up!
