I just bought Sketchbook Pro and spent hours trying to get my Cintiq tablet to work with it properly…
The software was advertised as optimized for pen input but I couldn’t find any support for pen tilt or pen rotation. This is not professional at all.
In this forum I found requests from users about this feature from the year 2009. Is this really so hard to implement? There surely are dedicated APIs for this, provided by WACOM. How many people are there on your development team? One?
When are you going to implement these functions? Otherwise this is a great application so this is a big disappointment because I then have to rely on Photoshop only.
Furthermore I can’t configure the buttons on the Cintiq appropriately. How do I configure the Scoll Button, so that I can move the canvas with my pen, by pressing one of the Cintiq’s buttons?
If you look at the Help Files/Manual you will see that the Canvas Puck appears when you press the Spacebar. This allows you to scroll, rotate and zoom the canvas. My Cintiq has a key set to Space by default. Yours?
thank you for your reply!
I had the scroll feature directly on the button but it didn’t work. But now I have set it to SpaceBar and it is working fine.
Would you happen to know anything about the rotation and tilt features?
I don’t know if there are any plans to implement those features but honestly I wouldn’t hold my breath. SBPro isn’t Photoshop (obviously) but is so much better for being fast and easy to get projects and ideas started which can then be taken to Photoshop or whatever for development. For what it does and what/who it targets, I regard it as being VERY professional.
