    Hm. Are you getting wobbles while drawing on the N9P display, or are you using it like a 'blind' tablet with your external monitor and experiencing wobbles there?

    I only use the 2-in-1 by itself, so I don't know how it manages multiple screens. I have an entirely different computer driving my desktop drawing board.

    Can you describe your setup in a little more detail?

    While drawing on the display. I use my external monitor for reference and things like that.

    It's just the N9P with a 23" monitor connected via HDMI. Using "Tablet PC" mode has nice smooth lines, but it has the hitch whenever switching tools. Wintab has the wobbly lines when drawing slowly, especially with light pressure, and drawing circles can have that polygon effect where the line isn't perfectly round.

    I have an iPad Pro I can use for off-screen reference so it's not the end of the world. It's just not how I'd like it to be. Ha.

    Well, I don't know about your monitor setup or why it would behave that way. However, I came to the conclusion that the wobbly line and polygon effects are partly Clip Studio's fault.

    Paint Tool Sai makes perfect lines. In fact, just in the last couple of days, I have been serioyusly tinkering with SAI2; I reset my license so that the beta SAI 2 would work fully and allow me to save files, and have spent time re-coding my button bar, all exactly because the line quality in SAI doesn't suffer from the same issues as CSP. Somehow, SAI just has a better driver system than CSP.

    But I've not done any actual work in SAI2 yet; the lack of touch is annoying and CSP is fine when I'm just penciling, -and isn't that bad when inking.

    In your case, I'd probably tinker with video drivers and Windows settings. -I just installed a new monitor as well recently, and it took several tries to get things working correctly. There's still a bit of fickle voodoo involved with monitor settings, and weird things seem to happen until you juggle things just so.

    Good luck!

    I don't know. It doesn't happen on the iPad Pro or the N9P with Windows Ink.

    I appreciate your input, though! Your YouTube videos are what persuaded me towards purchasing the N9P, and I really do believe it's the best drawing experience on Windows. Too bad they don't make a 17', or Samsung doesn't release a 20" Wacom EMR display.

    Time to bring up this old gem from the grave.

    Hi. Newbie on the forums. It seems like most of the questions on how to get the s-pen button as a rightclick seemed to work. However, specifically on Photoshop it acts quite oddly. Usually when I draw, I use Alt Rightclick drag to change the brush hardness and size, but it stays stationary. Anyone manage to fix this issue?

    Huh! Neat. I didn't know there was an alt-right click function. That's the thing with super-complex old software packages; even after all this time, Photoshop has surprises.

    When I try it, (with the stylus button), I get a little postage stamp info-box with three data points, two of which I can change by moving the stylus up/down, left/right. I find it a bit too sensitive for accuracy, but it's an interesting feature. It works on mine, anyway.

    I'm using RadialMenu to get my right click function.

    I suspect it's because the native resolution of your external display does not match the native resolution of your N9P.

    Oh interesting. So yours works. I can't seem to get mine to react when I alt right click drag the mouse. I think the computer doesn't recognize the movement. I also should mention that my model is 940X5N and I disabled the Samsung pen service but could not find where to disable "Samsung firmware interface service"

    I think you mentioned you just picked a non-broken version of Win10 and everything seems to work alright, plus radial menu?
