Windows 8 and Sketchbook Pro 6

8646 Views, 6 Replies

Hello, I bought Sketchbook Pro 6 a few weeks ago (download from the online store) and have been using it with Windows VISTA.  I have just bought Windows 8 but haven't loaded it in yet. I understand that Sketchbook Pro 6 may not be compatible with Windows 8, or that I may need to reload Sketchbook 8 after I install Windows 8). I would need help with this. I haven't taken Windows 8 out of the box yet, so I could return it if it simply won't work with Sketchbook (which I use a lot), and go buy Windows 7. Please advise.

no autodesk products are supported on windows 8 yet

it doesn't mean it won't work it just autodesk did not test it on windows 8 so you may run into unforeseen  problems

I had sketchbook pro 6 and installed it onto my new computer with windows 8, and the tablet I have works just fine elsewhere, but sketchbook isn't acting pressure sensitive. Sketchbook always acts like I'm using heavy pressure, even when I'm not. I've played with all the setting with the tablet (Monoprice) and Sketchbook, but it just won't work. It worked on my old computer with windows 7 though...

Hi,

 

Is there any chance that Sketchbook pro will have the time lapse recording for Windows 8 or Surface? as it is available with iPad?

I'm also having this problem with Express. Did you figure out a solution?

I have a Monoprice tablet and Sketchbook Express on a Mac and there is no pressure sensitivity. I've searched a little bit with no luck. This was the best result I had, replying to AHEMI43.
