Brush offset while using two screens

Hello, I have an issue that is related to the way animate handles monitor sizes, i guess.

 

Whenever I use the brush tool the preview of the stroke is exactly the way i drew it. When I let go of the mouse however the brush stroke correction starts to happen. While this is normal, in my case the whole stroke is shifted to the right for about 1 to 2 mm, which makes it impossible to draw. 

As i tried to fix this error (working only with one screen, instead of two, changing the resolution, etc. etc.)

i found out that if I draw a small line in the upper left corner it stays where it should be, but the more i go to the right, the more the final line gets shifted to the right. 

Here is my monitor setup:

And here is the visualized offset I am trying to explain:

I don't experience any issues drawing with this setup in any other software, Illustrator and Photoshop both work fine.

 

If it is not a bug, and / or if someone has a solution for this problem, please let me know.

Thank you,

Michael

Hi mate,

 

Try to see if any of the older available versions of Animate work for you better.

 

You also can check all the other many threads on the topic of drawing tablets in this forum too. There are tens of them.
