Issue when drawing

Postby mustanglou » 25 Mar 2020, 14:36

Not sure if this was happening before or I'm just noticing it but I think it's new. The ink is not starting where I put the pen down. When my stylus touches my tablet I don't get a line for about 1/8 - 1/4 of an inch. Everything is calibrated. This also is causing an issue when sketching small lines and nothing appears on the tablet

I take that back. It's better but not fixed. I still can't draw small lines or circles. I get the multiple circles around the stylus but it doesn't paint anything

I just added but nothing changed. It's like it's requiring a certain length of stroke in order to lay down paint so when sketching or trying to make black circles for eyes or nostrils nothing paints

It's set to 13%. I did turn it off and it didn't change anything. Also FWIW it's not happening in other programs
