    Solved Sp3 Pressure Fix - And my thoughts/fixes so far

    I'm glad we have narrowed down a solution for people. I would like to also remind people that the pressure curve app was released from Microsoft recently. It can be found: Surface Hub http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/surface-hub/a0ccf2f2-defa-45b9-8a81-510b819333ef Allows for...

    How do YOU watch movies (off line)

    Using built in network sharing I transfer files to the surface over the home network. No need for usb or sd cards. I use Mplayer classic for videos. Winamp for audio. go to codecs.com for the latest codec pack to play most all formats in one simple pack (klite is what I use).

    Googled it. Tip pulls out with finger nails. Eric, you deserve the cookie on this one. Removing the tip and putting it back in, completely fixed the pen. It now works just fine in Freshpaint, whereas before I had to press very hard. I now it clean lines. I'll give some more input when I...

    I took the other half of the pen apart. Took out and reset the small screw and battery @ the eraser end. Does the tip just pull out or twist?

    Have you run the calibration, using your pen how you would actually hold it, rather then hitting the points directly. (if that makes sense.) You should give Artrage a try. Use the pen settings within it. And let us know. I'm really anxious for Microsoft to come out with the extra options they...

    Love/hate relationship with my new i5/256gb

    Adding a 3rd party Start menu dock (Classic Shell etc) And using an Artdock (http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/threads/toolbar-creator.63014/#post401226) Solved majority of irritations. A good Bluetooth 4 mouse is crucial for some operation. I have a Mouse M...

    Bit of a follow up here: I have tried many, surface pro 3 demo & displays and all the results of pressure are the same or worse than my own SP3 so I figure nothing is defective (as mentioned before) or not how it "should" be. I have however succeeded in achieving natural feeling drawing using...

    Freshpaint is a good example to use. Especially since it uses the native pen drivers, not the wintab. Photoshop CC properly updated uses the native drivers. CS6 Uses wintab Having simlar results in all apps. Including: Maya, Z-brush (& Skulptris) The problem in my opinion is getting the...

    Solved Sp3 Pressure Fix - And my thoughts/fixes so far

    When I use non pressure apps the pen tracks flawlessly. But it feels way to heavy to draw even just thick consistent lines without tons of pressure, or having the pen completely upright. Super disappointed this fundamental functionality has no out of the box fine tuning. At least they say...

    Yes in the original post I mentioned I installed the wintab drivers. Unfortunately they didn't offer and extra settings, just increased compatibility. I really just need to adjust the pressure sensitivity and the device will meet my needs. It tracks the pen very well, and definitely smoothing...

    Does the pen support tilt? I know some of the Wacom tablets do and I see the settings in Photoshop.

    Thanks for the quick response. I read your comment and it was something I had taking into consideration, I figured I would make 100% sure it wasn't my foolery before driving the long distance back to the store to test and replace. So much work has been done installing programs etc and the...

    Solved Sp3 Pressure Fix - And my thoughts/fixes so far

    Hey everyone, Posting here as a last resort to a problem that may either be software or hardware based. The pen takes far to much pressure to make solid lines. I know Microsoft is "working" on a pressure control panel tab, but at the moment the tablet feels either defective or unusable as I...
