I’m not really sure what category to put this in, sorry.
So I started using Aseprite when I had a Toshiba laptop with a Wacom tablet, and it worked great. I loved it! Pen pressure worked, I could use keyboard shortcuts from my laptop while drawing, etc. I recently got a Surface Pro 4 and have been really struggling to use Aseprite since, which has been bumming me out.
One issue I’ve had is that I can’t use keyboard shortcuts nearly as easily on my Surface. There doesn’t seem to be an on-screen “undo” button, which is my biggest gripe related to that. I mean, there’s edit>undo, but considering how often I need to undo something going through a menu is vaguely annoying haha.
Pen pressure is completely nonexistent, which is disappointing but honestly not a huge issue because I’m usually working with a 1x1 brush or the paintbucket anyway.
The biggest issue I’ve had is that there’s a moment of lag between touching the screen with my pen and the program “noticing” or “catching up,” and then the program jumps from where I initially placed the pen to where the pen is when it “catches up” with a single straight line. Meaning it’s hard to sketch anything with curves, which is basically everything. I have to draw very slowly or else I have to erase the first part of every line I make, which is really irritating (especially without a quickly accessible undo button).
Here is a quick video I captured of the lag.
Is there a way for me to fix it or does Aseprite just not work with the Surface? I don’t have another program to do pixel art with but I really miss it since getting rid of my old laptop orz
