    I tried the Ink on the new Surface Pro and nothing. I also tried it on the Yoga 720 whose Active Pen 2 will supposedly offer tilt. (I'll believe it when I see it.)

    I don't get those same results, I suppose you're using clip studio paint without stabilization?
    There's something odd on my part then, will give it a try and do a video tomorrow.

    No those tests are done in Sketchpad which doesn't have a stabilization option

    Are you seeing a lot more jitter in Clip? Should probably test after they release 1.66 which is a Surface Pen and Dial specific update.

    In the midst of the tech discussion, it sounds like something more human - congratulations - are in order. Kudos for a fatherly job well done.

    @surfaceproartist take a look at this, I used Sketchpad but I'd say the result is more or less the same in Clip Studio.
    Basically, if I use a ruler it tends to do fairly straight lines, but as soon as I switch to freehand it just goes on full randomness: sometimes it's a perfectly straight line and sometimes just wobbles, even during the same line.
    My guess is that the plastic of the ruler gives some kind of shielding or another electrical phenomenon and falses the result.
    That or the line being straight is the result of some software working deep at system level and it's not working well.

    Very weird. How long does it take for lines to stabilize? Or is that the best you ever get? Try re-seating your pen tip or using a different hardness?

    I tried everything that I could think of: changing tips, changing battery, not using Toolbar Creator, uninstalling the Wacom drivers for the Expresskey remote. No change whatsoever.
    The only other two options remaining is either a defective surface or a defective pen but I don't have a way to test that.
    It would be useful to know what results have others...



    Edit:
    Can you do a print screen of the updates you have on your surface?

    Is this an issue for all your drawings or just when you do slow diagonals? If it's more than this isolated method of inking, I'd return the nSP.
