Help SonanrPen works on your Windows device

SonarPen driver works immediately after calibration. However, here are a few tricks to make the SonarPen works with your app and closer to your habit on a Windows device

Make drawing apps Windows INK compatible

SonarPen is compatible with the latest Windows INK stylus standard which works with almost all the drawing / note-taking apps released after 2017. However, some apps might still setup to use the older WinTab stylus standard by default and it needs to configure to use Windows INK stylus.

The setting is different from app to app, but is usually located in the Preferences, Settings or Options menu. Here are the steps to enable Windows INK in Krita, Clip Studio Paint, PaintTool SAI V2 and Rebelle 6
