Hi there, newbie here. Just got myself a Surface Pro 2, and I'm looking to put some software on it. I bought a copy of Manga Studio Ex 4.0 awhile back, but it's on disk. Is there a way for me to install it? Preferably without having to buy another piece of hardware?
I tried putting the disc contents on a jump drive, and that seemed to work, but after I put in my serial number, it told me it couldn't do things until I put the disc in.
I bought a Surface Pro 2 in Europe with the Touch Cover 2. The Touch Cover 2 has the EU QWERTZ layout versus the North American QWERTY keyboard. That I could live with BUT the SP@ doesn't recognize the QWEERTZ layout an a bunch of keys don't work correctly. I chatted with MS Support and their answers was the TC2 must be broken. Not likely in my mind, must be a setting somewhere - HELP
I turn to you becuase I have a serious issue with color banding. I've seen fixes with this by sorting out preferences in the Intel graphics menu- but I have no idea how to pull this up or if I need to install special drivers to do so.
I've been trying to paint and ANY darker shades just equal banding blobs. It's awful!

Have you all encountered this? What was your fix?
I hope someone here can help me. I just bought a Surface Pro 2, and am loving it. However, one thing that I need to find a solution to is character codes. I use dozens of special characters a day, and so typing out character codes is second nature to me (©, ®, °, é, •, etc.) I'm wondering if anyone has a solution for how to type (efficiently) character codes on a Surface, since it does not have a number pad. (For those not familiar with character codes, to type © for example, you would make sure Num Lock is turned on on a standard keyboard, and then hold down Alt and type 0169 using the number pad. This cannot be accomplished using the numbers above the QWERTY keys.) The experts at the Microsoft Store confirmed that I can't type character codes on my Surface keyboard. So I'm looking for some sort of solution. For some bizarre reason, the bluetooth number pads (Microsoft and Logitech) are discontinued and CRAZY expensive (look on Amazon or Ebay, all upwards of $150 or $200 depending on brand). I have a cheap USB number pad, but when I hook it up (to the one coveted USB port), it doesn't work with the SP2.
Most of the time I expect to have my SP2 hooked up to a docking station with a traditional keyboard, but for those times when I'm not (which seems to be more and more, now that I can truly be portable thanks to the SP2), I really need to figure out a work-around.
Thanks in advance,
i just bought a 64gb surface pro 2, as it was the only available where I live, and reads all the opinions about it been fantastic. Im mainly a mac user but well i say: so many good reviews. I worked in Win 7 a yeae ago because I read win 8 was having problems, but what the hell now I have 8.1 and the errors are supposedly corrected right?
so in ios is really strange to see an app freeze or the whole Os to freeze when clicking.. but in windows..that seems a daily thing if I overclick some app or window in explorer, and is driving me nuts...
why do I over click? seems I dont know how to calibrate the double clic quickness oor mayhaps I'm doing something really wrong since Im not use to win8 ormaybe is a bug?
so here my problem, I was testing illustrator (i installed the wacom feel driver since I also use psd) and I use the hack for turning the Ui into an acceptable size...that was posted in the tips section.
I opened the color guide, and for some reason if I use my foam size finger I can pick the color, but if I use my stylus, I click and seems selected...but it doesn't. so I click again and seems to pick another colour but didn't bring it into my object... and so is when I realize I need to double click, but no! so I click it like more than thrice or more and illustrator freezes, never picked up the color and so I finished cliĉking it with my finger. but I think, wait! It needs to work with the stylus too right? and I have change the settings of the wacom feel driver, about the speedness of double clik, but nothing changes! and then illustrator shut down unexpectedly "too much overclicking"
same happens when trying to open a folder in win explorer....the ui is so small still that i rather use my stylus than my enormous finger, but again! the double click is a pain in the ass and never opens my folder till I use my giant finger! and suddenly I over click again too many times with the stylus and my Os freezes!
someoneee help, I dont want to start hating my new toy! is it the wacom driver ? or the native or what? is it justme? noo I dont lose thepatience that fast so don't think as me clicking so frenetically without waiting the results!
also the windows store apps turned out to be crappy versions of the ios store. but well I have the whole windows 8 to run tumblr or pinterest right? like I dont really need Tunein for hearing the radio (win store version is crappy) if I can just google the station by itself or open my tumblr via chrome...etc.
