-I got a MS Surface Studio 2 to do annotated reviews.
-To my surprise (but kinda not surprised as SG is awful), it appears SG review doesnt work at all with Windows Ink.
-No matter how much you draw with the stylus, you only get the occasional dot. Finger input as well.
-Please don’t tell me to turn Windows Ink off, because for a MS Surface Studio, Windows Ink with stylus is the primary input method.
-Please don’t tell me to use RV, as I need to be able to do this in browser.
-Yes I tried in multiple browsers, all up to date. I am on Windows 10 latest build.
-How could such basic and obvious functionality not be supported in SG? I am sure tons of creatives use MS surfaces. (Studio, or laptop/tablet).
-I have 1000s of shots to review. Please help!
I dont have any issues using this feature on my Wacom with Windows Ink enabled so I suspect there is some sort of translation layer not working between the browser and the way the pen works on Windows Tablet Mode.
I have 2 sugestions:
Both add your problem/feature request to the Product Roadmap: https://www.shotgridsoftware.com/roadmap/
The Roadmap is what the product teams use to assess what features are requested most by the community.
Create a Support case (if everyone using tablets does this it will be a louder voice). Post Purchase Support → Help Using my Software → etc…
While my suggestions do not immediatly fix your problem they help log this missing feature/bug/breakage in the official systems rather than being a forum post.
