View Full Version : shift-click brush with mouse, how to do it with tablet and pen?

10 October 2004, 01:45 PM
I'm starting to use the Wacom tablet more and more, however there is one feature from painting with the mouse that I miss a lot when using the tablet.

If you mouse-click once on point A of you canvas using the brush tool holding shift and you click again in point B, you get a straight brush stroke from A to B. If I try the same with the pen and tablet the stroke fades away in a few pixels. Is there a way to achieve this with the tablet?

I don't know this for sure, and I'm not near my tablet right now, but I think if you use the buttons instead of the nib for your click you should achive the same result. You will have to have one of you buttons mapped as a single click, which if I remember correctly is the default of the top button on the pen. I've reconfigured my settings which is why I don't remember for certain.

Go to the brush menu in the right top, turn off the shape dynamic.
