Install questions / Can't download Tablet Pro manager from store
« Last post by AdamSJ on May 08, 2018, 08:00:07 pm »
I've only made it as far as trying to get the app from the Microsoft Store. When I press "Get" it does nothing but appear to refresh the app window, no download or anything starts. I've tried numerous solutions to fixing store bugs but no change, no other apps I've tried had an issue downloading from the store, just this one.

How do I???? / It's been years, what's new!?
« Last post by GaryDave on May 08, 2018, 05:17:48 pm »
Hey, I was an early adopter of tablet pro when I first bought my Surface Pro 4, it wasn't doing quite what I wanted and so I ended up going the route of plugging in a Wacom Intuos tablet, and disregarding the touch-screen/stylus stuff.

But now I'd like to see what's changed, but I thought I'd come here and ask first.

I'm a 3d artist, and spend most of my time sculpting (in 3dCoat, not Zbrush), I'm very tempted to purchase the wacom bamboo ink pen, but I have read many things about microsoft not letting you re-map the 2 side buttons, which is insanity if you ask me.

Even without the bamboo ink however, the lack of a proper right click, or middle click on the default stylus simply makes it impossible to sculpt.

Can Tablet Pro be of use now? I've seen videos with re-mapping the stylus buttons, though it looked to still be in development, how has this progressed?

Can I have a proper right-click on the stylus I got with my SP4? (by which I mean, none of that hold side button and tap nonsense)

Do hold-buttons work on the tabletpro UI now? ie, holding "space" to pan, and have it stop panning when you release your finger?

I would just install it again and try some things out, but I'd purchased Tablet Pro back in the day, and can't for the life of me find a license or any form of email aside from registering here on the forums (back in 2015!)

Bugs / Re: Problem with holding buttons on the Artist Pad

I've tried setting mine to left as well, but still have no luck.  When i bring the pen close to the screen it triggers a click or something, and releases the alt button being held down.

are there future plans to have to ability to change the grey key overlays to 0% opacity so that it can allow a 100% full opacity of a background artwork instead?

Exactly the same issue here with a new Surface Book 2 Windows 10

Iīd like to use Zbrush in tablet mode, but seems I have to get a keyboard now.

How do I???? / Pen and touch at the same time? How?
« Last post by LieDem on April 30, 2018, 08:29:53 am »
Hi,
I have the trial version of tablet pro right now.
I specifically bought a surface book 2 in order to use zbrush with tabletpro in tablet mode.
So Iím already trying to get it working for 1 week now and canít figure out how to press alt (not toggle, press and hold) and using the pen to rotate (zbrush works like that).

First thing is, I canít get Alt to turn off when I am releasing my thump,

Second: when I have the thump on alt the pen is not working. So I canít rotate.

Iím using Windows 10, is there a way to allow simultaneous using of pen and touch? And I donít want to toggle alt on and of, I want to hold it, like a real keyboard would work.

I really like to buy TP but the program sadly is useless for me if this is not working :(

How do I???? / Artist Mode at the bottom of screen in portrait
« Last post by Hawkswift on March 20, 2018, 06:45:05 am »
Is there any way to do this? Or fake it by using Bottom mode but set modifier keys like Alt not to toggle?

Hi guys, I need your help...

I am looking for a new tablet pc for me to have so that I can work on the go. I bought a surface pro 2017 i7 256gb 8gb ram 2 weeks ago, I thought this was the answer to my problems. Before I bought this I was thinking about either having this or the wacom mobile studio pro 13" i7.

I've researched online for reviews of the surface pro and most always have positive reviews, they have pen jitters here and there, but its minor that you can just erase and do it again. there were reviews that seem to make the drawing look flawless and accurate. One review said it just takes time to get used to...

I was still leaning towards buying a wacom though as I have already trusted the company ever since I became a professional, but then we saw a huge sale from a local store selling the surface pro that I have now for 2078.00 NZD from 2466.00 NZD. this made me really jump on it rather than the Wacom MSP. I was eyeing the i7 13" for 3444.00 NZD. I thought the price is just too big of a gap, I am willing to take that "time to get used to" for an almost 1500 nzd price difference. I bought the pen and the keyboard with the surface and... this was an up and down battle until I called it quits from today...

I started having those jittering problems and accuracy from the get go. I use photoshop CC 2018 for almost all my paintings and artwork. I am an inker, so I take line art very seriously. reviews said seldom but I am not happy with my lines at all. I am ok with slight imperfections but I found 8 out of 10 times I stroke its bad. Now I am researching why I am having this jittering and apparent parallaxing. i thought it just needs updates and drivers but no... I stumbled upon tablet pro and believed this would help me immensely as I needed all the shortcuts I can for work, but the problem still persists. I can just undo my lines much faster. I found a thread in the microsoft support site about this... using a glove helps but not always works:

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/forum/all/intermittent-pen-inaccuracy-when-hand-is-on-the/28ef8566-0003-4c68-a964-6c2562423eb0

I can't believe, from the beginning of production of Surface pro 2017 its already a problem until now. I don't know if it is an electrical problem due to the palm rejection or the tilt function of the pen. The life of the surface pro is nearing a year old now and I don't think they are treating this seriously or just have no answers no matter what they try. If a new user raises up this problem at the support site, it is like they are hearing this for the first time.

breakdown of what I did for the Surface Pro:
-updated Windows to Fall update (no improvement)
-updated surface driver (no improvement)
-calibrated pen (I did this more times I can count and the best setting was the original the surface came with... I think they know about the parallaxing and thought to re-align the cursor behind the pen then once the pen touches the screen it jumps to the tip. )
-installed Tablet Pro (helped undo my "mistakes")
-installed intel gfx card driver specifically for Surface (improved my power management)
-bought the nib set (no improvement)
-used gloves to not touch the screen (improved drawing but still jittering... just not as wild as before.)
-paired the pen in bluetooth (improved the accuracy a lot but not the solution. I don't trust NTRIG)

Now i just give up... I'm wasting more time fixing this than working... I am returning all the stuff I bought soon and looking at other alternatives... shame really... I still want to hear if there are any SP2017 users out there that maybe isn't having this problem...

I am still thinking of buying a Wacom MSP but I might just get the i5  128gb priced at around 2950.00NZD but it really stings my pocket. I hope you guys can suggest some good ones that won't break my bank.

Sorry for the long rant. hopefully it helps SP users and artists who plans to buy.

Thanks and hope to hear from you guys.

UPDATE: I am using a trial of Lazy Nezumi and right now its doing well for my line art. It just doesn't feel natural sometimes. does anybody have some tips for this?
