Re: Issues with pen input; microsoft surface book and surface pen SOLVED

Dear Daniel,

I still owe you a check mark.

I have been using the new option (i.e. "Allow Draw with a Finger Touch" unchecked) for a while now. It is really helpful and has worked reliably so far.

Thanks to you and the Dev-Team!

Keep up the good work!

Cheers

If it is ok for you, I will now wait for the next build, then test this in my productive system for a while and will then set this thread to "solved".

Re: Issues with pen input; microsoft surface book and surface pen SOLVED

This is like christmas and birthday at once :D Thank you so much!!! While testing this, I noticed one more interesting thing. The "ink-color-change-problem" was apparently only an issue in the "classic tool bar mode". In the ribbon-UI - which I never really used - you can select ink-color without ri...

one more idea: Maybe the "last selected tool" could be implemented seperately for all the input types: I.e. the software would keep track of the tool lastly selected by pen, the tool lastly selected by finger-touch, and the tool lastly selected by mouse-click. Then the inputs could be completely ind...
