Aww! Actually cross your fingers but I think I may have been able to fix my tablet. Not to bore anyone with the details, but it looks like the solution involves two separate things (the tablet driver and my computer’s settings) where if you don’t do them both you only get a brief fix before it stops working again.
I’m trying to test it out before I declare it a total success, but I remain optimistic!
Oh yes! Thank you so much. It’s just my tablet that’s not working properly. The pen’s doing something weird that has apparently happened to other people, but none of the suggested fixes so far have helped. I have a couple more to try, but haven’t had a chance this past week due to late nights at work. Hopefully soon I can try again and, if those don’t work, I’ll give up and get a new tablet. (Though naturally in the meanwhile I’m stuck in the shame spiral of feeling I SHOULD be able to fix it and not spend money on a new one, regardless of whether or not I CAN.)
So that’s the situation here. I hope you don’t mind me posting this publicly so others get the update as well. If so, just let me know and I’ll take it down and reblog w/o your question attached. =)
Tablet is still not working. I’m continuing to try to find out if this is a fixable problem before bagging it all in and spending money on a new one.
The upside is that google-fu says I’m not the only person to have the problems I’ve been having. The downside is that nobody seems to have a definitive answer for how to fix it. So, time and spoons permitting, I’m trying the various solutions I find to see which, if any, work.
Wish me luck!
My tablet is refusing to cooperate with me. It’s been persnickety for a while now but now it’s really kicking up a fuss. Can’t get comics done without it. So arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh.
I’ll let y’all know more when I do. Sorry about that.
