Astropad + Photoshop quick stroke issue


Hi there,

I am using the new iPad with USB-C with Photoshop on my MacBook. So far so good, but as soon as I want to make some quick sketch lines, Photoshop only recognizes a small part in the beginning and I end up with small bits of lines, instead of a full stroke. (Although Astropad recognizes the stroke indicated by the red line)

Thanks for your help, highly appreciated!

That can happen with poor data throughput, particularly over Wi-Fi. Maybe verify that the connection is still going through the USB connection and hasn’t reverted to wireless. Or perhaps a particularly CPU-intensive brush could be interrupting the data flow.

Try checking Astropad’s Vitals window to see if heavy latency seems to be involved.



I have the same problem. It’s very annoying.
The problem also appears via USB. I’m using a new ipad pro with apple pencile.
Is there a solution?




Hello Astropad Team,

the problem still exist. Do you have a solution?
I also bought the luna Display Stick, but the problem is not gone :frowning:
very sad…

--------------- Update: -------------------

I just found the problem.
BetterTouchTool was the problem. When I close this program the strokes/lines in Photoshop work as they should.

Does anyone know why there is a conflict with BetterTouchTool?
