So I sat down to learn synfig finally and cannot input anything with the Wacom pen. I can choose a tool, but on the canvas nothing happens (well the cursor + drags around). Ditto with pencil, or any other shape.
I grabbed my mouse and wa-la, circle.
So I searched and someone mentioned File>Input Devices in passing…
Pull up Input Devices and I have under WACOM Tablet Pressure Stylus X:1 Y:2 and none for the rest. I could not change any settings, using the mouse or the pen.
Then playing around while posting this I changed WACOM Tablet Pressure Stylus to Eraser, and Eraser from Disabled to Screen.
Changed back to Stylus item and now Stylus was disabled… changed that to Screen then Back to Eraser (still Screen) and back to Stylus:
Stylus is now “Screen”, the values X, Y, Pressure, X tilt and Y tilt are respectively 1,2,3,4,5 which I can change any of now (changing 3 to 5 swaps the values) and wheel is still none.
The pen draws now but I have NO IDEA what any of this means, why it wouldn’t change the values until I activated the Eraser and now what the values mean… ?! Can anyone explain the correct way to set up a stylus/pad input?
As a side, I’m guessing there are no pressure reactive tools… is that correct?
