Type of device: Graphics Tablet
Brand and version of the device: Wacom Intuos S
System: Windows 10
Running Krita Ver 4.4.3
Generally, I have my Wacom Tablet Properties set to use the Tip-side button as the ‘Erase’ function and that would allow me to use the Eraser as long as I held that button down and switch back to brush on release. It’s worked just fine with Sai and Clip Studio (which is using WinTab API) , but not Krita. Whenever I try to use said function I get Krita’s Pan Mode instead as if I pressed Middle-Mouse.
Honestly I’m at my wits end, and will probably lose my sanity without any help solving this. Any help is tremendously appreciated.
Unbinding ‘Pan Mode’ from Middle Mouse in ‘Canvas Input Settings’ does prevent Panning but still doesn’t erase. The cursor just disappears with nothing to replace it.
I’ve tried switching the Tablet API from the default ‘WinTab’ to ‘Windows 8+ Pointer Input Windows Ink’ and while that did bring back the Eraser switch I was looking for, it introduced a whole bunch of issues that make it not worth it.
Looking at the Tablet Tester yields the following info from each Tablet Input API:
I don’t know exactly what the above data means but I thought it could be useful. I feel like WinTab API should be calling the eraser function like the Windows Ink API but it just doesn’t for some reason.
Enabling ‘Use Mouse Events for Right- and Middle-mouse clicks’ did not fix.
Reinstalling Krita did not fix.
Reset+Reinstalling Wacom Tablet Drivers did not fix.
When testing in Krita Version 4.3.0, The Eraser still didn’t work (even with changes listed above), but bizarrely would instead create phantom brush strokes in the Brush History.
