So I ended up completely uninstalling my tablet again (while also making sure it didn't automatically start grabbing the newest software) and attempted to download the previous driver update from September, and everything is running smoothly again! No more weird, unwanted straight lines messing with my beautiful curved strokes. haha
I guess there is some sort of weird bug on windows 7 that they might have to work out with the 10/12/2017 driver update...until then I think I'll just avoid it for now and keep on trucking with the slightly older drivers. Anyways, thanks for the replies and suggestions everybody. ^u^
So about a day or so ago I downloaded the latest driver (6.3.25-3) for my month and a half old Wacom Intuos tablet that was previously working like a dream, and then suddenly THIS...
...frustrating bs began to happen.
Every time I initiate a curved or circular stroke my pen cursor hiccups and creates an unwanted straight line or sometimes a jagged line just before correctly following my input.
This happens in both Photoshop and Paint Tool Sai.
What's happening here and how do I fix it??
I tried replacing the nib and the problem persisted.
I tried stopping and restarting Wacom Proffesional Services multiple times...and it kept happening.
I tried rolling back to the previous driver...and it kept happening.
I checked if "press and hold" was enabled, it wasn't, and nothing changed.
I turned off "flicks" and nothing happened.
I tried stopping and restarting Tablet PC Input thing-y, and it kept happening.
I even tried uninstalling everything and only downloaded the previous driver, but then the tablet just stopped working all together. So I updated to 6.3.25-3 and everything began to work again...but the jagged line problem persisted.
What am I missing? Any help with this would be super appreciated.
My OS is Windows 7 btw
