@surfaceproartist Thanks for replying I tried Paint too and definitely did notice the jitter. I think I could see that in Ink Workspace's Sketchpad the lines are being 'fixed' automatically, but I might be totally wrong. I would be happy to purchase Clip Studio Paint for $49 as long as it's not another monthly subscription. Whoever came up with all those subscriptions (Amazon Prime, Adobe, Dropbox, Spotify, Audible..) was damn clever I found an 8GB RAM Miix 700 for £900, that's still pretty expensive to me considering it would be more like a gadget rather than a tool for everyday work, but I am thinking about it! I guess I could always return it if it turns out to be not satisfactory. @surfaceproartist I can see you know your stuff - do you upload your work somewhere online so I could see it? (ideally the ones created with your Surface tablet Thanks!
