Hi,

Whenever i try to use the brush tool it draws somewhere different to where the cursor is.

I need help!!!

Hi,

Thank you for the tips.

I found that my DPI settings where too high.

I changed it from 125% to 100% and now both pen pressure and the offset are both  working properly together.

For anyone having the same problem, i fixed this on Windows 10 by:

  1. Right-clicking on the desktop and selecting display.
  2. Then, under Scale and layout, find where it says "change the size of text, apps and other items"
  3. click on the drop down box below and select 100% (or a lower percentage to what it's default is)
  4. This should fix the problem, if not then look at Trevor.Dennis​ 's reply.

100% works the problem is, 100% is just too small for me to see or read on my screen.  I mean it's tiny.  150% is (Recommended) by windows is barely viewable and still doesn't work right. I prefer 175% for it to be functional for me.  I mean I don't have the best vision but I'm not blind.

You could probably mess with other scaling settings, such as text scale, while keeping it on 100%.

 

Another tip:

On your desktop hold ctrl and then scroll the scroll wheel up, it will make icons on the desktop larger.

That is nowhere near going to cut it.  I mean I need to get within inches of the screen to read the toolbar.

Hmm that sucks, there might be a work around.

 

Like I said, my main issue was with 2 monitors, so if you have 2 try using your tablet with just 1, or changing the tablet setting to only work on 1 monitor.

What tablet are you referring to?  There is no mention of any of this thread.  I do, however, have a Wacom tablet, but this issue persists with or without the tablet.  So as to not confuse the issue, I would prefer not to bring that into the discussion.
