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 decided I wanted to get a tablet to replace my laptop. I did a ton of research.I play a lot of games online. So that let out a lot of options for me. So then I started looking at the ipad...and even the ipad air. Honestly...I was not impressed.I wanted something that i could take pics with if I wanted to. But I also wanted something that I could use usb on without having to buy extra components. I looked ,finally at the surface and then surface pro. Yes it is a bit more expensive. but #1 it does everything I wanted it to.It supports flash witch no other tablet out there does. I got it with 128 gb but I can also upgrade that with micro sd if I want to. Very few others do. It is fast. I have had no issues when playing games. It runs very very smoothly. Its start up is incredibly fast.. Out of the box setup is a breeze.I have used it both with keyboard and without.. The onscreen keyboard is just s easy to use.Windows 8.1...very easy to figure out. And I have an android phone not a windows phone. I feel anyone could figure it out. Yes it is a bit different if you are used to windows 7 but fairly easy to navigate once you figure it out. I have to also say that I have found the touch screen to be very responsive. Both by touch or stylus..I honestly feel that Microsoft has gotten a bad rap over their tablets that they do not deserve. If people actually took the time to see what it really can do.Yes it may be a bit more pricey then the ipad....but the ipad you are stuck with apps from their store. This...you can download any program you want. if you can use it on your computer you can use it on the surface pro 2. The ipad has no option of a regular keyboard as well as no option for upgrading memory or a usb. So all in all I think it is truly the best tablet out on the market for the money.Of course this is just my experience,but I wanted to share for those who may not have purchased and wanted to know what others that actually have used it thought.
Did some research and decided to purchase a surface pro 2 over a cintiq companion. I wanted something portable and more casual and I'm hoping this will fulfill my needs. Hopefully will arrive in a day or two !
Sorry if this seems like a silly question, but I'm assuming everyone puts a screen protector on their Surface. Is the screen easily prone to scratches using the included stylus? Any recommendations on which ones I should look out for since there are so many? I noticed the Microsoft store sells the privacy and self-healing incipios. Are there any that would somehow interfere with the sensitivity to the stylus input...?
Any chance that...an old wacom graphire 3 tablet pen would work with these guys, what exactly makes the pen compatible? The driver?
I didn't buy a keyboard with mine yet but I was leaning towards the type cover 2, since I really didn't like the lack of actual keys on the touch cover. I heard that they will be releasing a "power cover"? Which is suppose to help with battery life, how bad/good is the battery life at the moment? Any of you looking to invest in one? $199.00 is pretty steep.
Apologies, I know it's a lot of questions, but I appreciate any input!
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?
