So I'm going to keep this short and sweet. So recently Animate won't let me draw a small circle unless I zoom in and draw a big one, then zoom back out. Even this way, my circles are never actually circular, the top part is flat and the bottom is circular. Like a hemisphere. Please help as soon as possible. Thanks!

As of today, the team has tested Animate on Wacom devices and there are no major known issues. The team is working towards improving the experience on Surface Pro as well. While several improvements have been made in past releases, there are a few that the team is still working on.

Thanks,

Preran

Hi mate,

There have been multiple such topics in the past so look for them if you like.

You have not given information on your input device, but probably you will and it will change nothing.

There has been problems with various digitizers and Animate, most notably Surface Pro.

As far as I know there is no solution yet.

So this is what worked for me. In addition to disabling press to hold, I disabled "Show visual effects" and enabled "Let me use my pen as a mouse in some desktop apps". Between the two I can now draw a tiny circle 60% of the time, although I have to wait two seconds before drawing another small circle.

Hey so I got mine fixed somehow after trying a bunch of things and I'm not completely sure what triggered it to work but you can try all these...

-Restarted PC

-Uninstalled then Reinstalled Drivers

-Charged pen some more to make sure it wasn't in battery saving mode or something

-Reinstalled Animate

If none of this works, try the pen or tablet on another pc pc check to see if the problem is with your PC or your tablet. Anyways, good luck, hope you get it fixed!

I have this same problem but I'm drawing from a desktop with windows 10 and a huion drawing tablet/pen I reported this as a bug and they suggested that I do 

  1. Edit-->Preference-->Edit Preference-->Drawing-->Tablet Input-->Windows Ink(Beta) -->Press OK

However I have a new problem that when I switch to Beta I can draw my curved lines without the straight line at the begining but with Beta I have a new problem. For some reason I can't draw more than one line without having to re-click the frame over and over when I draw with my pen but doesn't do this when I draw multiple lines with a mouse

Is there any fix for this in the works? I have a lenovo yoga laptop and I can't draw small circles or strokes, it's really irritating.
