    Wow....what a Mess....thanks for linking that. Lazy Nezumi has a Command Prompt fix that makes it normal again.

    Oddly enough before I used that fix.....I tried the Surface WIntab driver.....It did not work at all with CSP set to Wintab......but once I did the Command Prompt fix.....now both Wintab and Tablet PC/Ink work in CSP (at least for now)

    NP, glad it helped. What was the command prompt fix that worked for you? Might be helpful for other sufferers to know :)

    "Greetings to the Windows Ink Community!

    In response to overwhelming feedback from our Windows Insiders, the Windows 10 Fall Creator’s Update changed how the pen behaves when it isn’t doing its primary function of laying down ink. The pen now scrolls/pans content, but the previous behavior of lasso/text selection is still accessible by depressing the barrel button before making contact with the screen.

    To deliver a consistent experience we also changed the behavior for legacy Win32 applications that weren’t specifically designed for pen. These applications instead rely on Windows to convert pen input into another form of compatible input, such as mouse. While we try to test as many of the most popular applications used with pen before releasing, there is a chance that one of your favorite applications wasn’t covered as part of our validation, relies on input conversion, and may not function as intended after this change.

    While we closely monitor application compatibility issues and work with our developer community to resolve them, we understand that in the interim you need to use that app. Starting with Windows 10 build 17110, we’re putting you in control of your pen experience with legacy applications.

    By executing the following from an elevated command line, the next time any legacy application starts it will get the prior pen behavior from the Windows 10 Anniversary Update: “reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pen /v LegacyPenInteractionModel /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f”

    Anytime you want to switch legacy applications back to the behavior introduced in the Windows 10 Fall Creator’s Update, execute this: “reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pen /v LegacyPenInteractionModel /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f”

    The Windows Ink team is working on improving the UX for controlling this via our settings UI in a future flight and we’ll keep you posted as this progresses. We really appreciate your feedback and would love to receive more of it! For our Windows Ink fans, please check out the most natural way to enter text with your pen with inline handwriting in the latest insider builds. You can now handwrite directly in to the text boxes of UWP applications with your pen; simply tap in the text field and start writing!

     Thanks,  David

    omfg........Now my freshly updated Mobile Studio Pro is doing the same bull.....good thing I had the command prompt on hand.....Man......this is a huge f-up for Microsoft. I don't even want to think how many art students and illustrators are no doubt confused and frustrated today. And regardless how simple the command prompt fix is....that's not a suitable solution for the masses.

    Yeah, it was messed up enough that I always had to look up how to enable hover right-click (and I'm still annoyed with Samsung for not allowing one to easily enable that).

    Switching to Android or Linux or an iPad Pro/Apple Pencil paired with a Mac Mini is looking more and more likely.

    For the first time in my life I'm wishing Apple would make a tablet Mac (can't believe I'm saying this) so i can get far far away from the gong show that appears to be Win10. I don't understand why MS is touting their Surface Studio for artists and creatives and then pulling nonsense like this. Why would they not offer this as an option rather than just breaking basic functionality by default?

    Thanks for the command prompt post DM. It's insane that they're literally breaking equipment that costs thousands of dollars.



    Probably someone ran out of 'work' to do on the wink team and had to justify their pay grade...

    I didn't find the time and didn't think about it too much either lately, i only made that WinToGo flashdrive i mentioned and dowloaded the offlines updates (i hope i still have the updates somewhere cause i ended up downloading them two times... ) but that's all i did... No idea when i'll find/take the time / decide suddenly out of the blue to look into it.

    At the same time, besides the whole Win 10 "rolling" update clusterf-mess that's awful in so many ways (the broken updates stuff - that i mainly hear about - i dodged most of it i think for now - the many newish/updated useless apps/change i don't want and so on), i end up liking Win 10 enough - As a tablet PC OS - at least.

    Many little usability things i like better on a tablet/convertible type of device than on Win 8. On a desktop/normal PC i still go with Win 8 (when i need Win8). Although for now, i block updates and only manually trigger them (Disabled Cortana entirely also). I started looking into removing some of the default apps too, just in case that silly OS would end up filling up the SSD one year later by itself... -- And hm i need to remember into looking about cloning its system/install as soon as possible in case something goes very bad some day.

    More or less related but i kept my GB SD card formatted as ExFat apparently, when i got the GB10 i read somewhere i "really" needed to do that for some reasons i forgot (perhaps related to SD/FS wear?).
    (I had my SD cards on other Win 8 tablets as NTFS for installing Windows software on them - And i saw recently there's a pinned topic here with a link saying they have to be formatted as NTFS to be able to install apps on them (But Windows Store apps? or just good old Windows ones? The good old ones i suppose?). Only thing i tried related to that recently was a setting to have Windows 10 install newer Store Apps to the SD directly and it seems to work so far...? (I'm on the latest major update currently). I may still have to format it again as NTFS of course. (UGHH)

    But yeah my main concern was about the little 4gb RAM... So far it hasn't been a problem for me, but even if i've been used to laptops with 16gbs of RAM for years now, i haven't the same use for them, so... It's not indicative of anything :/

    Anyway. Yeaaaah, long post again / and i repeated myself .
    If i do test it on Win8 tho, rest assured i will come back here at least reporting about the basic drivers stuff (BT/WIFI/sensors) and of course what i can test initially about touch and a few drawing softwares/apps...

    Although i'm totally not up to date/aware enough how the different WinTab/Windows Ink/etc drivers-stuff is supposed to work generally on Win with different softwares, so i don't really know what i should expect.

    i'd bet someone manage to test all that before i do tho...

    (i'm tempted to look for my flashdrive/s and update files right now and steal a few hours from this night to finally be sure about it, buuuuut... I have a feeling all the drivers stuff would steal more than a few hours to sort out.)

    Thanks for the into! That was good to know. Sounds like they've fixed this recent stupid messup too with the Win10 windowsink fiasco. I'll experiment with stuff once tablet arrives. I got a surprising amount of work done on the 2gb Note 8 so the SGB 12 should be mindblowing...
