    UPDATE: OK I discovered something else. As mentioned prior, In Laptop mode,..the mouse activates the Play button with a single click and stops the playback by single-clicking on the play button with no issues. HOWEVER, I accidentally discovered that when I put it back into Tablet mode I can actually get the Play button to indeed work… BUT….only if I double-tap/click it with the stylus. I must also double-tap/click it to stop the playback with said stylus.

    Niels,…the length of the animation had no effect. There is something that is interesting though and possibly helpful to you. The Samsung Notebook Pro 9 15″ is a convertible tablet. So when using the stylus to draw etc,..normally you close it up so it is in tablet form; this is how I work as well. After seeing that the play button would not work unless I accessed the menu bar I decided to unfold and put the tablet back into laptop form (in which nobody would ever use for art) and amazingly the normal play button control worked just fine when accessed with the mouse pointer!! So something is definitely going on in relation to the stylus.

    OK,..so last night I opened up AP to mess around in it and the brush lag was gone for awhile. Makes no sense. Later, I went back in and the lag was back. Again,..no logic behind it but wanted to report it. I always have touch disabled on the laptop because basically I hate it. Thought it could have a bearing on this odd behavior with the AP brush lag but it does not. Even when I turn touch back on, the lag continues.

    Niels, ok,…so I have put the pen through its paces and can report the following oddity. I notice a pretty significant lag when drawing. (Even at slow speeds) If I use a fast hand and create a fast stroke, the lag is even a bit more apparent BUT it is there even on a very slow and deliberate line stroke. It seems to do this with the pencil and brush. I tried 2 different styluses and netted the same strange result. It is extremely laggy when creating any type of curved line and/or loops. Pressure has no effect on the lag. Drawing a light straight line quickly has less lag but still is evident. This occurs with all 3 brushes. If I really slow down the stroke on diagonal lines is drags badly. Very strange.

    So the line variation is solved but it looks like there remain some troubling issues here. I promised to report back so that is what I’m doing. I have the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 15″ convertible laptop running Windows10 Home. I have no issues with ClipStudio Paint Pro or Photoshop (just as a reference).

    I think you guys are almost there with the pen solution but there must be something going on that has a negative impact on the pen lag now.

    Let me know if I can help further with this.

    I have faith that you will get this all figured out in the next update or two or three. I’m more than likely in the minority with this issue so its understandable that you are needing to stay focused on fixing and refining the lower hanging fruit first. I do understand that.

    I’m running Windows 10 Home
    I have a Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 15 Tablet PC
    It is pen-enabled and the pen has over 4,096 levels of pressure.

    After downloading APaper,
    I installed it.
    Secured a Key online.
    Entered said key.
    Ran program.
    Tried all three drawing tools with no pressure variance whatsoever.
    Adjusted all 3 pens via there individual settings and set the variable ranges at all different levels.
    Still No line variation.

    Closed program.
    Checked Windows Pen and Ink settings. (Really nothing much to adjust)
    All ok.
    Opened APaper again.
    No effect on Line variation in AP.

    Wintab settings are OK.
    No effect on drawing tools in AP.

    No other drawing program that I have has these issues.
    Clip Studio Paint Pro, Autodesk Sketchbook, Sketchable, Mischief all work fine with perfect pen pressure variation.

    I did try something else that generated even stranger results. I do not ever use “touch” as I hate it,…but I figured I would enable it to see if that had any effect on the pen pressure issue. Not only did it not help,…it made AP absolutely useless. None of the drawing tools worked at all. NOTHING!!!! That was crazy. I disabled “touch” again and the drawing tools worked again as before…but again with no pressure. Oh well, I have tried everything so I will just see where the AP development goes and how it progresses.

    This is obviously a flaw in the program that I’m confident the team is working on. It is very odd but at least I know I’m not alone. (Although I’m a Windows user) Hopefully, the next version will have this weirdo bug addressed. It is all part of the Alpha testing.
    In my situation, I have yet to get the pressure to work so I have just worked around that and explored the other features to see how the program functions overall.

    Tried both the Windows Ink and WinTab approach. No change.

    Thanks,

    Well I just performed a Windows update and a Samsung Update as well…still no go! I have to let this go for a while. I will check back another day to see if any other solutions may present themselves. Thanks again. Amazing how such a seemingly simple feature is really not to be taken for granted. It’s NEW software as you said Neils, so patience needs to prevail here for me. I know it will get sorted out in the end. Everything is up to date on my device and all other programs that I employ have zero issues when it comes to line pressure. So who in the heck knows…LOL.

    I use a Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 15 Model# NP940X5M. Windows Home is the OS.

    Thanks again to everyone!

    Hmmm ok..so nothing worked. What a big bummer! (for me at least)

    Wilfred: I know this seems hard to believe, but there are still some of us that do not use Apple hardware. I’m too invested in the Win PC arena and reinvesting in another OS seems over the top to accommodate one program. I use a Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 15″. I have 3 different Wacom pens that I use with it and have never had this issue with any of my other programs so this is a new one on me.

    There really aren’t any Wacom settings to adjust ( It’s a Wacom enabled pen convertible laptop and the pressure always works beautifully with every art program I have ever used )but again,..I have never had to.

    Hey,…it’s a price I must pay I guess for not being an Apple guy and I’m sure the vast majority will have no such issue after the official launch but I just wanted to report it in case a solution was possible.

    For me though this is a huge problem as I cannot even get the line sizes to change, let alone the pressure widths. I’m not going to dwell on this though any further than this as I do not want to be THAT guy who rains on the parade here.

    Apologies to Niels! The effort and work put into this program is INCREDIBLE!!!
