Screen Protector When Drawing?

Recommended Posts

elrafo

I was wondering if the use of a screen protector is necessary and if there is any loss in sensitivity when drawing. I have just bought a SP3 and intend to use it mainly for digital painting.

I was thinking to buy some matte screen protector to have some kind of resistance when I draw, but I am also concerned this resistance will ruin the nib of the stylus, Any advice?

I also use my SP3 for art. I don't find that a screen protector is necessary. I use my SP3 a lot with the stylus and have not gotten any scratches. I don't think that screen protectors will effect the touch sensitivity of the screen. However I do think that matte or anti-glare protector will effect the clarity and crispness of the screen, which would not be good for art. One of the things I love about the SP3 is the sharpness of the screen so that fine detail is easy to see even though the screen is not very large. My mom has an anti-glare protector on her iPad and it definitely effects the clarity of her screen. Edited by AuntieParticle

Unfortunately, results vary greatly between screen protector brands and pen nibs. The SP3's pen nib is the softest among N-Trig pens and I found it drags unacceptably on a Photodon MXF screen protector. The nib on the N-Trig DuoSense Pen2 actually leaves streak marks on the screen protector. Of the various pens I've tried, it seems that the Sony Active Pen's nib is best suited to that particular screen protector.

      Regardless of whether you have built your WHS or it arrived all in one piece there are certain steps you should take to get up and running with Windows Home Server.  This is not a step by step guide to installation.  They are all different.  This is more like Cliff Notes.  It's the stuff you need to know before you get started and some tips and tricks before, during, and after installation.  I will publish a check list or a cheat sheet list to go along with this podcast.

      Hi Dears
       
      I have a surface pro 3, recently i 've installed windows 10 pro on my device.
      everything goes well since i upgraded it wrong with windows 10 enterprise that my windows didn't active
      so i clean install a windows 8.1 pro on my device.
      since i did this installation touch screen of my device did not work well
      sometimes works well but it does not respond to my touches usually
      i installed all surface drivers that exist in microsoft site
      i guess that this problem causes firmware does not installed
       
      please help me
      thanks.

      I'm in a choir which is stuck on paper, and we have to use 3 ring binders for uniformity.  I was hoping to find an insert that fits into a standard 3 ring binder that holds a Surface Pro 3. I've scanned the music into OneNote.
       
      Thanks,

      I just tried the "Back to drawing board" app and it is really cool.  Imagine CAD on a tablet.  Works well with touch but really excels when using you cover or external keyboard and mouse.  I have tried on both WIndows 8 and RT and it works well.  I would not want to edit a super complex drawing on a Surface but it is nice to know you can.
