Hi, so when I use the brush tool in Flash CS6 and I have the pressure set it'll work like normal but every time at the end of the line itself it'll leave a dot of whatever brush shape I use. it makes it really difficult to just get a sharp end to a line and I gotta fix up the stupid blob at the end of my line. I'm running flash on my mac with High Sierra 10.13.6 OS and I'm using an Ipad pro with Astropad to draw. any help would be appreciated.

If you can borrow a Wacom tablet from a friend to test, it will be good.

CS6 is quite old, but works perfectly well on Windows with Wacom. It should work perfectly well on High Sierra also.

I'd suspect incompatibility with the pressure data that Astropad sends.

I originally started out with a Bamboo tablet years ago, had no issues until I wanted to upgrade. Had a cintiq break on me outta the box so I'm never using wacom again. Had a Huion didn't have the pressure issue but that thing sucked, so now I'm using my Ipad. it may be Astropad, I'm just curious if anyone's had that little dot at the end like me and if they've found a way around it.

I understand, mate!

I've seen this 'dot' in Flash 8 many many years ago with an extremely old Wacom, only when I sketch very fast, and only occasionally, say one out of 15-20 strokes.

This was on an XP machine. At the time I thought that the processor couln't cope. But on the same computer CS6 was working flawlessly.

 

Good luck!
