One of the things in ArtRage that causes much confusion is the 'Use Mouse Mode' option.
ArtRage, by default, uses high-resolution Tablet packet coordinate information for generating its strokes. But in certain circumstances those coordinates are incorrectly reported. As a solution, we put a 'Use Mouse Mode' into the menu to use mouse coordinates instead of Tablet packet coordinates. The mouse coordinates are always correctly reported, but aren't 'sub-pixel accurate'.
I would like some feedback from the people using graphics tablets. From the ArtRage 'Edit/Preferences' menu, select 'Use Mouse Mode'.
This will switch to using mouse coordinate input. This is the way almost every other graphics application uses tablet input.
Use ArtRage for a while with this setting. Does it change the 'feel' of ArtRage? Does it make it more difficult or easier or just the same to do your work? Do you even notice a difference!
In a future build, I will probably remove that menu option and leave it 'hard wired' to use mouse input coordinates. It would solve whole bunches of confusions and allow me to put twice as much effort into producing smooth stroke paths from the single coordinate input pipeline.
