Nicholas Rishel (nicholas_rishel) added a comment to D7840: Wintab refactor - high frequency events.

Will the debugging info be something we'd need on a regular basis from end users? if so it may be better to add a startup parameter to blender, if it's more 'it's handy to have now to diagnose things, but once the dust settles i don't see anyone using it 6 weeks from now` it may be better to keep it a build option and remove it before landing.

Nicholas Rishel (nicholas_rishel) added a comment to D7660: GHOST: Add support for precision touchpad gestures on Windows 10.

Unfortunately Chrome's use of DirectManipulation (by extension this adaptation) is a hack to get around Precision Touchpad's lack of Pointer API support. DirectManipulation's intended use is to tie user input into DirectComposition, so compositor scaling and translating. This is why multitouch touchpad interactions like rotation are notably absent.

I found that untangling the memory safety of BLI path utils while pushing/popping from directory history to be non-obvious without pessimistic string copying; as is this fix is likely the safest and most time effect way to solve the problem as it keeps the string manipulation close to the declaration.

Hi Nicholas,

I've tested the new build. I still get the issue that sometimes a click doesn't work. It's especially apparent when you click on a pop-up menu entry, such as pressing F4 key, then clicking on Preferences. About one in two or three times the click isn't registered and I have to make the menu re-appear to try again. This is not the case in the latest 2.83 beta builds and 2.9 alpha builds.

Nicholas Rishel (nicholas_rishel) added a comment to T68496: Hardware: Tablets: Problem with Trust Panora Widescreen graphic tablet .

The issue is that during creation of the window, there's a period of time where the window is asynchronously being shown and remains iconic (no visible window). Currently when the tablet api is setup it relies on this isiconic detail before it is guaranteed to be true, so we have a race condition. Why this isn't an issue when Support Tablet PC is set is anyone's guess; maybe it forces synchronization behind the scenes before the window creation returns or maybe it just creates a timing difference.

That's exactly what's happening. This is a driver bug and I see at least two issues. 1. it's not respecting a change in overlap order and instead continues delivering proximity events to the most recently opened context, 2. the information provided with WT_PROXIMITY events are possibly non-complaint to the wintab spec.

(Note to self) I suspect one of two things is happening, either the logic to differentiate stylus vs erasers has a faulty assumption for mapping cursors indices, or tilt values can in some cases be large enough to "wrap around" to the other side.

Visual Studio didn't swap /Zi for /ZI leading to cache misses, possibly not running cmake's configure step?

I don't know what this means, support is currently ninja only so the IDE should not be involved at all?

/ZI isn't special cased, and it cached correctly when I tested

I'm somewhat suspicious here, the issue linked says they can't cache when .pdb's are involved, ZI and Zi both are stored in .pdb files, the only format that logically should work is Z7 as far as i'm able to tell

Keep this issue open, IMO it's still a bug until a fix is found, or a decision is made to either prefer the new or old system.

@adli (adli6333) @anger (jemian)
T68496 describes a situation where pen input is inverted until "support tablet pc" was enabled in there tablet's preferences program. Could you check if there's something similar in XP Pen's settings?

@Xotherz (Xotherz) Could you upload a screencap of the tablet settings where you changed "Support Tablet PC"? If there are any dropdowns on the same page it might help to screencap them too.

@michael williamson (michaelw) Could you check if you can reproduce this in the current nightly builds https://builder.blender.org/download/? There have been a lot of recent changes to both tablet apis.

I checked Krita and Gimp to see if they had a solution here; neither handled this use case.

Yep, this is a consequence of how the Wintab code is attempting to correlate Windows mouse buttons to Wintab buttons. I'll think through it a bit more but this might become an issue of either getting high frequency tablet input or support the old button workflows.

Can someone confirm whether this test build fixes the issue?

@Alberto Velázquez (dcvertice) to clarify, can you repeatedly cause problems in 2.82a by having launched 2.83 prior, and repeatedly fix it by restarting the PC?

For posterity I'm documenting a difference between Wintab and Win32 Pointers that I think is important. If there's a better place to document this let me know.
