Hi All, I'm an artist in the conventional realm (watercolours plus other media) looking to up skills and try out concepts in digital realm prior to rendering with paint. Trialed Corel Painter 2022 for a couple of weeks and purchased yesterday. Does anyone know of compatibility issues between CP 2022 and MS Surface Laptop Studio (Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, NVIDIA® GeForce RTX) plus MS Pen 2?Been messing about to familiarise with CP: a) with brush set on colour 1, after switching to colour 2 (as selected and represented on the colour panel ring and main colour), the brush strokes still appear as colour 1. Only fixed by selecting another brush from the tool and then re-selecting the original brush. b) using the magic wand to select a colour region, when going to paint in the selected region, even though a brush is selected, the wand does not become de-selected and prevents painting in the selected region. Only able to fix by restarting the program. c) using the MS Pen 2 (which works excellently elsewhere) appears to show zero response to application of pressure, tilt, etc. There's others, but they were the main ones from today. Cheers!Brian
Had no pressure response- Correll support said “no plans to address issue”
Corel needs to list compatibility issue with MS Surface laptops- seems everyone has a problem with Painter but not other programs.
Corel's customer support was nothing short of deplorable. Rather than working to address it or even an admission of incompatibility, the responses were simply half-hearted attempts to appear as though they were looking into it while effectively doing nothing. Given the pressure functionality is a major component of rendering digitally I gave up the ghost and got a refund - shame as I liked the features Corel offered. So many other apps are compatible, why not Corel? Rebelle 5 looks good and while they don't appear to have the presence of Corel, their customer service is responsive with well-considered replies - get the sense they care about customer experience, while Corel most definitely does not. I will 100% not recommend Corel.
Really disappointed to hear about declining Corel Painter support for newer Surface devices. It still works on my SB2, but it seems like there's not really a path forward with Painter.
IMHO it's shortsighted of Corel as the latest range of Surface devices are garnering highly favourable reviews - I tried the Pro 8 and own the Laptop Studio - both excellent and address flaws in prior Surface devices (owned the SB2 for awhile as well but that hinge didn't grab me, went with the Laptop 2).
