It works, except that at the beginning of lines, there is a dot:

This also happens with Xournal, but not with any other software.

Thx for the feedback!

Yes, I knew about this one, it's because the very last point on the stroke has a different width, and the way I render the cap of the stroke is not yet very smart (I just draw a disk to do a "round cap", which also create issues when using strokes with transparency). It should get better in future versions.

Hello there :)

The tablet I am using is a rather old model and nowadays cheap (used is around $30 in Poland, new ones are about $60-70) so if the issue is tablet-dependent, you do not have to prioritize fixing it. The tablet's hardware and software was developed by Aiptek but it was also sold on a license by other companies, at least by two: Polish Pentagram and British Trust. Below, I;ve listed two of them, I do not know the extact name for the model sold by Trust, but they all work the same.

1. VPaint 1.5 beta
2. Windows 7 x64 Home Premium
3. Pentagram Thintype [P 2006] / Aiptek SlimTablet 600u Premium II
4. As viisble on the screenshot, the final point of a stroke has the default size, regardless of the pressure. There is no such problem in any other software I have ever used, from all the Adobe stuff, through open source GIMP/Inscape to ArtRage ot even the Window's tablet text input.

Regards


EDIT
As for 1.7, it looks the same :)

1. Version of VPaint: V1.5
2. Operating system: Windows 7 SP1
3. Pen tablet tested: Intuos 5 Pro PTH-450 Driver Version: 6.3.4-3
4. Your Feedback: It feels great to draw with the software so far. My only complain, but I don't think that is hardware specific Is that any kind of fast mark making is ill received by the program. I have to draw or hand-write rather slowly if I want clear lines, sometimes In animation though, you have to do gestural drawings really fast, so the vector information processing is not ideal for that kind of task just yet. Other than that it's great so far!

Thank you for the feedback! I take good note of this, and hopefully the drawing experience will improve over time.
