when I hold my pen in a position for too long, a large pop up takes my brush away, it is a LARGE wheel that takes up 1/6 of my screen where I was drawing, and has sections on it for if I wanted to change my brush, which I don't, I'm just indecisive lol and keep my pen on whatever I'm drawing on until I decide what I want to.
is there any way to fix this? I've tried looking at settings (not that I know what it'd even be called), and I've tried looking at settings for my pen and tablet, no dice. I have used other programs, and other computers with this tablet, and this has never happened before, so I'm not sure where to go from this but damn is it annoying as it changes my brush anytime I try to draw, and I have to fix my brush again after it happens. it's really hindered my want to draw, because I know what I'm going to have to deal with.
Thank you whoever replies lol.
