Since Windows 8, Microsoft introduced a new API to use your tablet with Windows program: the pointer API. Since Aseprite v1.2.19.1 you can configure what API do you prefer to use:

Tablet section

  • Windows 8/10 Pointer API: This option might be enough for most modern devices, you can give a try how your tablet works with this (might work better with this option than with Wintab)
  • Wintab: This is the default option at the moment to support pressure sensitivity on older systems (Windows Vista/7) and older devices.
  • Wintab (direct packet processing): This option might not work well in some devices, but might be useful in other devices to avoid losing packets and getting smoother strokes.

Pressing the OK/Apply buttons will change the tablet settings immediately, there is no need to restart the program.
