Hi maunakeaone,


Welcome to Autodesk Discussion Group.

If you are running Sketchbook Pro 6, I'm afraid it has yet to be certified to run on Windows 8.


Thank you.

Hello. This could be the environment itself, certainly. At best, I would try the basics:

  • Update video drivers
  • Test older drivers
  • Uninstall and reinstall
  • Adjust display settings (test other resolutions)
  • Test other display settings
  • If you have mouse or stylus specific drivers, you could uninstall and reinstall/test

Basically, I would consider any input devices that could work with the software, and installed, a possible source of the issue. Uninstall, reinstall, and adjust any display settings that may be connected.


Thank you for taking part in our community!

3. acept.

3. exit from sketchbook.
