Stroke control
« on: March 04, 2017, 01:08:40 AM »
Last year I bought CSP while it was on sale, but didn't get around to trying it for a long time. Since I've recently reformatted my computer and acquired a new tablet (Wacom Intuos Art), I decided to test it. It took me a while to figure out how to get pen pressure to work and where to find the stabilization, but I managed it. (I still wish there was a global stabilization setting, though.)

But I still have one issue. Regardless of delays (which are turned off) and stabilization, I still feel as though I have no real control over my pen strokes. I could be writing a note on the canvas and write a lowercase L (l), and the resulting line would extend farther than I intended. Everything I try to draw ends up looking much smaller than I wanted even at 100% zoom.

The tools are great, but I feel like there isn't much in the way of actually controlling one's strokes on the canvas, so it's not really ideal for drawing at the moment.

Is there a way to adjust this, or am I just gonna have to make due with it?

Look at the brush engine and search for the "correction" tab.
Try turning off all of the stuff there, especially "brush stroke" as it will act like natural hair flow
so the stroke will have a "tail".

Perhaps you have "start and ending" option turned on which will model and correct your stroke
taking the given parameter you have set in the "starting and ending" drop down menu.

Also check File- preferences- tablet  menu, and change the detection to "wintab" or the other way around.
This caused issues in the past but it should be fine either way.

I am sure it is just some parameter turned on that's giving you trouble.
You can setup CSP pretty much spot on for any and all of your drawing needs.

Did you find your weird stroke culprit?
Please post the solution so that the other people, with the same problem, can resolve it.
