Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re seeing strange crashes in Windows 10 when you zoom, rotate, or interact with menus (or other random movements of your stylus or touch gestures) then the culprit is probably Press & Hold for Right Click. This is a tablet and touch input setting that can conflict with tablet drivers and software in strange ways.
- Go to your Control Panel > Pen and Touch > Change touch input settings
- Disable or enable ‘press and hold’ (whichever it currently is, change it)
This feature has also caused strange zooming or ‘right clicking’ behaviour with older Wacom drivers and previous versions of Windows.
If you are using ArtRage 3 Studio/Studio Pro and are seeing crashes, this might be due to an incompatible feature that you can disable: ArtRage memory crashes on Windows 10
If you can interact with the menus and buttons, but can’t make any marks on the paper, or can draw fine but can’t use the menus properly, then the problem is usually the tablet driver settings.
If you are using ArtRage for iPad or ArtRage for Android, make sure that you haven’t set it to ignore touch input from your finger or use a different stylus.
If you are using Windows, then the issue is usually tablet drivers. Go to Edit > ArtRage Preferences > Input Devices.
If both Realtime Stylus and Wintab are ticked, this is almost always the problem (ArtRage tries to autodetect the one you need to use, but if the tablet driver or operating system sends the wrong signal, ArtRage can’t use it and appears to not be responding). If only one is ticked, you might need to change to the other one.
- If you are using a separate graphics tablet to draw on (or a mouse!), turn off Realtime Stylus and restart ArtRage.
- If you are using a touchscreen device (e.g. a Cintiq or Surface Pro), turn off Wintab and restart ArtRage.
