Problems with Tablet input in ArtRage on Windows

If you are experiencing problems with ArtRage not reacting to the pressure of you strokes or not painting at all when using a stylus please follow the troubleshooting steps below. For any other problem please Contact us and we’d be happy to help.

Checking ArtRage Input Settings for Stylus Type.

ArtRage supports two different types of tablet input on Windows: The older ‘Wintab’ standard, and the newer ‘Realtime Stylus’ standard. In many cases where the stylus is not producing pressure changes or is not producing paint at all having support for both of these turned on at once can be the cause, so they can be turned off independently.

Follow these steps to change ArtRage input settings:

  1. Open the ArtRage Preferences panel from the Edit menu and locate the ‘Input’ section.
  2. Make sure ‘Use Wintab’ is turned on and ‘Use Realtime Stylus’ is turned off.
  3. Click OK and restart ArtRage.
  4. If the problem persists, return to the Preferences panel and turn ‘Use Wintab’ off, and turn ‘Use Realtime Stylus’ on.
  5. Click OK and restart ArtRage.

This tests whether the problem was caused by ArtRage incorrectly handling information when both standards were supported. If it does not solve the problem, please do the following:

  1. Make sure that any drivers for your tablet are up to date.
  2. Contact us and let us know what version of Windows you are using, what type of input device you are using, and exactly what the problem is.
