James Fulop (Yam) added a comment to T51948: Pen pressure cannot be detected on Wacom Cintiq Pro 16.

I was testing with some different tablets and had a similar problem with a Wacom Intuos 4 Model PTK-640. After digging into it, I found the cursors being reported as values that aren't handled in GHOST. The following diff fixed it for me.


Looking into it more I think that there is a programmatic approach to knowing which cursors are active according to Wintab, using WtInfo and WTI_CURSORS, which might bullet-proof this more. I'll look into this more next time I have access to a bunch of tablets.

On the other end, since '@' file is written first, would be the first one to hit permission issue, so…

Bastien Montagne (mont29) added a comment to T52080: File Permissions Bug in Windows - Blender ignores Windows folder permissions and fails to write in valid folders with proper permissions..

Hmmm… the '@' file is a temp .blend file Blender uses to dump its binary data in, before renaming it to final file name - it avoids potentially running an existing .blend file whe you write over it.

Bastien Montagne (mont29) triaged T52106: Render window don't close from Windows taskbar thumbnail as "Low" priority.

Not sure we can do much here? It’s kind of Blender not having focus issue most likely, so it cannot handle own events, or something like that I’d guess… We need a windows dev to have a look at this, but would really no consider this as high priority issue.

First of all, when you do assumptions, you should speak more gently. Nobody should do what you say or want.
Second, Blender does respect permissions, I couldn't reproduce your bug. If I try to write to a folder I'm allowed to write in, it works, whatever folder/partition it is, if I'm not allowed it won't.
So you have to better describe your problem and speak normally.

Probably this is some issue with NTFS file junctions. What is the exact error you message get, when saving a .blend to this folder?

I just found that problem for a project that I'm working one. There is any solution available or hack that we can do to solve the it? I see that the first report was done around 4 years ago, and blender 2.78 still don't recognise linked folders in windows 10.

I think disabling it is fine. Windows is already scaling the title bar correctly in 2.78c when you change the DPI setting.

I tried using SetThreadDpiAwarenessContext(DPI_AWARENESS_CONTEXT_PER_MONITOR_AWARE_V2) that is available in Windows 10 version 1703, but it has the same issue as EnableNonClientDpiScaling.

If we can't find a better solution to this, I think we should automatically not call this function for Intel cards. It's only a cosmetic thing for title bars anyway.

Jaimi McEntire (Jaimi) added a comment to T51959: SurfacePro 4 + win10: Blank area at top. Mouse click off by blank area size..

Is it worth adding a setting to optionally bypass the call to EnableNoClientDpiScaling? Current intel chipsets can run Blender at very good speeds, a lot of notebook and tablet vendors are choosing to not even include discrete chipsets anymore. Even the iris 540 in the surface pro 4 is a credible solution for Unity and Blender.

I can confirm an issue like this with an Intel HD 4600 on Windows 10, when setting "Change the size of text, app, and other items" in the Display settings to something else than 100%. Using an NVidia GTX 1080 on the same computer shows no problem.

Not sure we can do much here… we need a windows dev to investigate anyway. But issue is probably a mix of driver and windows handling of tablets that conflicts with older API… Supporting ink in Blender is more of a TODO than anything else.

Thanks for all the thorough testing, but am afraid this demonstrate once again that issue is with Intel drivers… Not much we can do here, unfortunately, besides waiting and hoping for issue to be fixed in a future driver revision. Thanks for the report anyway.

Please:

  • Ensure both your OS and drivers are fully up-to-date (and use official GPU drivers, not those provided by windows or tablet/laptop maker).
  • Try to start Blender in factory settings (--factory-startup commandline option) (this will ensure whether this is a userpref or addon issue or not).
  • Try to tweak OGL settings in UserPreferences, System tab.
  • Try to tweak your GPU driver settings (e.g. try different values between 'performance' and 'quality' if you have such slider, etc.).
  • Try to place this dll next to your blender.exe (software OGL, will be slow, but will show whether this is a driver issue or not).

No, it doesn't work at either resolution - but the amount of empty banding is off by a different amount.

My Blender installation on Windows 10 was done using blender-2.78c-windows64.msi
With this the thumbnails are missing on .blend files in the Windows Explorer.
Running blender.exe -R fixes the problem - but as said above, it would be nice if it was done automatically as part of the installation.

I'm a little confused now - these 3D previews come from the different blender versions (yours and official 2.78)
but obviously the bottom one, which is the experimental one, is different.
This has absolutely nothing to do with this bug, but I'd just like to know why that is
