Using tab+pen zooms in too much

Postby superego » 18 Jul 2016, 19:07

Hello! I'm hoping someone can help me with this.

Black Ink works fine with my mouse. I can draw with no issues.

I bought a Wacom Bamboo CTL-470 and as soon as I put pen to tablet, my view zooms in and the only way I get anything on the canvas is by tapping the pen on the tablet - it draws in dribs and drabs like this. If I try any constant long strokes, nothing happens other than the cursor moving around the canvas. If I zoom out again, the view zooms in to the centre of the canvas. It doesn't matter where on my tablet I try to draw, the view in Black Ink zooms to the centre.

Any ideas? Have I overlooked something?

Do you have setted some shortcut on your wacom ? ( or do your hand touch the zoom area of the Tablet ? ).
It's seems tha you got a problem in this area ( tablet shortcut ). Try to open your Wacom preference and add Black Ink then try to configure your shortcuts.

If you still got problem go into the Main Menu > Preferences > Stylus and disable the "Precise stylus position"
