As you might tell by the low volume of posts in recent weeks, things have been a little slow on the Windows tablet news front lately.
Thanks to reader Michael Pearman, we just learned that N-Trig has issued a new update to its Wintab driver, available here.
This driver is required for older software that does not support Windows' real-time stylus.
According to the N-Trig post accompanying the release, the September 2014 update addresses pressure issues with the following software:
- Adobe Illustrator
- Adobe CS6 After Effects
- Adobe Flash Professional CC
- Adobe Fireworks CS6
- Autodesk Maya Entertainment Creation
- Autodesk Mudbox
- Softonic PaintTool SAI
I'm downloading it now and will update the "Surface Pro 3: What Runs, What Doesn't" feature accordingly. N-Trig has published its own extensive list of compatible software here. If you have a chance to test the driver with older software, please let us know your findings in the comments section below.
UPDATE: Sad to say, the new driver doesn't appear to help the performance of Illustrator CS6 or CC on my Surface Pro 3. The software still misses about every fourth pen stroke. Let me know if your performance varies.
