2023.03.22 08:13 QueenRosaliez Galaxy S7 FE - pressure sensitivity

I recently bought a Galaxy S7 FE tablet. The tablet's performance is truly amazing but the s-pen needs a huge amount of pressure to produce a proper line. Some drawing apps didn't respond even to the hard pressure I applied. The tip is white, which assume from what I've read here so far, is quite a hard tip and is mostly for note-taking not drawing.
I really like the s-pen, but I'm scared to break it every time I draw with it. Tips sold on Amazon are said to be garbage in the reviews and break easily. I even considered buying a Staedtler Noris stylus since some of you here said it works pretty well with S7 FE but I'm not really keen on getting a new stylus when I've barely used my tablet for a week.
Frankly, I'm not even sure if the tip of my s-pen is replaceable or not. Some comments said it is, some said it isn't.
Are there any compatible tips for drawing I can buy? How do I make sure they're the right sizes for my s-pen? Or can I just adjust the pressure sensitivity? Is that a possibility??

2023.03.22 07:17 Razhagal Offset Cursor With Drawing Tablet

Let me just start by saying I've already read through all other posts related to this issue and the same solution that worked for all of them has not worked for me.
I'm using an XP pen tablet and multiple displays on Windows 10. I have one of my displays cloned onto my tablet. When I use the stylus, it can select tools and options just fine, but as soon as I go to draw on the canvas itself, it shows a cursor exactly where my stylus is but then it draws a couple inches away from that. The offset is greater on the right side of the tablet and gets almost centered on the left side of the tablet.
The solution that has solved this for everyone in every post and youtube video I've found is to change the scaling option so that it is 100% for both the tablet and the monitor. I have already done this. I have tried it at 100%, 125%, 150%. I have switched to 150% and back to 100%, same with 125. I have tried NOT having them the same as well, trying all combinations between the three settings.
I have reinstalled my drivers several times, I have updated GIMP to the latest version. If I open up MS paint, there is no offset and it works perfectly fine.
I have spent several days ripping my hair out over this. Does anyone have any clue how I can fix this?

Sorry, it's me again
I don't like to scratch my work area, I always used my Intuos Draw with a plastic protector, I'm trying to find one too for PRO M, but the ones I saw on amazon the comments say it makes a lot of bubbles and spoils pressure reading

Do you use any screen protective? Which one?

My pen is dragging behind while I draw. How do I fix this?
I'm fairly new to drawing digitally (on and off for several years) and not sure how to sync/calibrate it. I checked the "Pen pressure setting" but my pen does drag behind there.I'm using a Wacom Intuos Pro on a Window PC. Canvis size is 562 x 440 300DPI.

2023.03.22 01:44 Kekker_ I have never experienced more unstable software than Chauvet 2.8.22

Since the latest firmware update, my supernote has crashed almost every time I use the gesture eraser. The entire tablet becomes completely unresponsive. My pen doesn't work, the swipe bar doesn't work, and clicking the power button doesn't turn it off.
I have to do a hard reset to get it to function again, but after reboot it screws up the last ~5 minutes of input. It doesn't just forget the last few strokes I drew, it confuses all of the drawing I had done into an unrecoverable hodgepodge of random lines. For example, something I had cut & pasted 5 minutes ago would be in its original spot, but the eraser strokes I made right before the crash would be running through it so whatever I had drawn is destroyed.
This insane level of instability and broken file recovery is completely unacceptable. It's been over a month and I haven't seen any acknowledgment that this is an issue.
Is there any way I can roll back to the previous update so I can use my supernote for taking notes (the most basic thing I should be able to expect my note taking tablet to do without crashing and corrupting my work)?

2023.03.22 00:54 jputf09 Digital Notepads

Curious if anyone here has tried/converted to using a digital notepad in client meetings as opposed to typing or old fashion pen/paper. I’m the type of person that prefers taking handwritten notes and always scan afterwards for record keeping. Wanted to see if anyone has utilized a digital note taking pad like Remarkable or another tablet and how your experience has been? It’s easy to end up with a pile of unorganized notes after weeks of meetings and could see this being useful.

2023.03.22 00:24 author-miglett2 Is this GP appointment realistic? How's the dialogue? How can I improve it?

Hugo is Avis' older brother. Throughout the whole appointment, he says nothing and just listens.
. . .
Doctor Vansciver motioned towards the recliner. “Sit there, please. I’m going to examine your chest.”
I stumbled over to the recliner and sat down. As I lifted my henley shirt, my eyes were drawn to the faint, long marks Grandpa had made on my front. When Doctor Vansciver saw them, he said nothing but moved the cold chest piece to my back. After that, he started pressing on my calves and various spots around my knees and shins that I assumed were pressure points.
“Are they still numb?”
“Yeah. I can stand if I force myself to, but I get weak.” “And you had a seizure on Sunday?”
“Have you had any more since then or was that the first time?”
“First time. But I’ve had cramping in my legs and hands. Feels like my body’s on fire sometimes.”
He nodded. “How long has this been going on?”
“Uh… probably ever since I was twelve?”
“You’ve never brought this up to anyone? Your father? He hasn’t seen you in pain like that?”
“It wasn’t as bad before. I thought it was just cramps or something. I thought I could handle it, but… I guess I can’t anymore.”
The man looked at his computer and the documents again. “I just want to check you’re still clean. No drugs, no alcohol, smoking or vaping?”
“None of that. Dad doesn’t like it.”
“Do you have headaches, dizziness, numbness, tingling, tremors? Anything like a loss of balance, decreased coordination?”
“I sometimes have migraines. I had tingling and a burning pain in my legs before I had that seizure. Couldn’t even get up right. Hit my stomach on the sink at work. One of the guys said I looked pale.”
He penned something down on a slip of paper he had on his desk. His eyes flickered to my face. “Do you have trouble eating or swallowing?”
“Swallowing sometimes hurts.”
“Okay, and when you feel that burning sensation in your legs, how do you cope? What eases the pain?”
“I normally wait for it to stop.”
“So you just stay where you are?”
“Yeah. It sometimes happens after I wake up from a nap or just randomly throughout the day. But at work, I tried to get up even though it really hurt.”
“Okay. At the pharmacy, I recommend you buy some capsaicin cream for your nerve pain. When you buy the cream, rub a pea-sized amount of it on the painful area of skin three or four times a day. You must remember to never use the cream on broken or inflamed skin, and always wash your hands after applying it. If you forget, there are instructions that come with the box. Read them, okay? I’ll also prescribe you some ten-milligram amitriptyline tablets and refer you to a neurologist.”
I took the slip of paper he handed to me and struggled to speak for a few seconds after hearing his last sentence. “What? A neurologist? Why? What’s wrong with me?”
“I’m not sure, Avis. That’s why I want you to see a neurologist for further testing.”
“So…” I swallowed, trying to gather my composure. “So… it’s serious, then?”
“I’m just a general practitioner, Avis. I can’t say because I don’t know. That’s why I want a neurologist to see you, take a look and run some tests, all right?”
“Yeah. Yeah, sure,” I said, trying to quell the trembling of my hand and legs. Hugo put a hand on mine, a silent reminder to let me know he’d been listening all along.

2023.03.22 00:21 Yeltsin86 Cintiq 13HD to Cintiq 16 or Cintiq Pro 16 - need quickly

I urgently need to replace a 13HD with another tablet. I could go for either the Cintiq 16 or the Pro 16 (not counting the Wacom One - I assume even the 16 non-pro is nicer enough to justify the relatively small difference in price. But the Pro 16 is far more expensive)
I have no idea how even the lower-end non-pro 16 might compare to the 13HD, even though that one was a pretty old model by now. Or if it's worth it to spring for the Pro 16 - I don't particularly care about the 4K resolution, but good colors are always good to have; I assume that would be the main difference between the Pro and non-Pro.
Any suggestions?

2023.03.21 23:09 Gutchies I want to use my MPP 2.0 stylus screen as if it were a slab tablet - How can I do this?

I am an artist who has recently upgraded from an old Thinkpad Yoga P40 to an ROG Flow X13, and the change has substantially changed what I can do with my laptop. However, I haven't been able to map the drawing input to a secondary monitor as I used to be able to do with my Thinkpad.
The Thinkpad had Wacom software that allowed me to map my drawing inputs to secondary displays easily, and additionally allowed me to correct for my ultrawide monitor for 1:1 input on a 16:9 drawing surface. On my ROG flow however, stylus support is baked into windows 11 itself, and I lack that flexibility.
Is there software out there that would, at the bare minimum, allow me to remap my windows ink stylus to secondary displays? Additionally, would be nice if it had other nice-to-haves, such as:
As for the why: Working on a small drawing display is untenable for me in the long run, as leaning over a drawing tablet to work exacerbates my back problems to the point that I cant normally function if I've been at work for several hours. Being able to map my stylus to a secondary display is thus a matter of health. The concern of line wobble is one that I'm not concerned with, either.
I am also aware that I could solve this problem by having a slab-tablet plugged into my dock, and using that whenever I am using a secondary display. However, such solution feels like a bit of a waste as I already have a drawing-capable display. A software solution would be much cleaner, cheaper, and take up less space for my situation. I am not afraid to do so though if there are no software solutions for my case.

Hey everyone. I’m looking to purchase a laptop to replace my HP Pavilion.
My Pavillion had a backlit keyboard, touchscreen, and about 16” display so I'm looking for one that has those features as well as 2-1 tablet capabilities (with pen), fingerprint reader, and possibly lightweight. I’m going to be using it for college/graphic designing, freelancing and streaming. I am considering a Lenovo or HP and I have mixed opinions about a MacBook. I have an open budget and would like a laptop that is high quality with good battery life. I’m open to any recommendations!! Thanks.

2023.03.21 22:03 rainaosocool XP Pen 13.3 not running independently

So I want my main monitor (Windows Surface laptop) and my XP Pen 13.3 to run different windows. Like for example I could be working on my tablet and watching a youtube video on my laptop. But no matter what I do it never works. I currently have it set to extend displays but what happens is my tablet controls my main monitor. For example I click on discord and it pops discord up on my main monitor, not my tablet. Am I doing something wrong or is this not a feature? Like I can move my mouse across my monitor and into my tablet but not do anything.

(Edit: I included a video since I thought it would be helpful) Also I'm running windows 11 if that helps

2023.03.21 20:22 David11219 How to Get Out of Bed at 5 A.M. Every day

How to Get Out of Bed at 5 A.M. Every day
I thought I was destined to be a night owl for the rest of my life.
I'm no stranger to reading about the benefits of getting up early or sticking to a consistent sleeping schedule — we've all probably read something similar at some point in our lives. I'm in my final semester of university, so the last few years have been a complete blur. I have classes some days, work other days, and only have free time on very rare occasions. It seemed impossible to have a routine.
However, I began reading Haruki Murakami's novels a few months ago. Norwegian Wood is my personal favorite. I did some research on Murakami after being inspired by his fascinating prose.
I discovered this gem in a 2004 interview he gave:
I get up at 4 a.m. and work for five to six hours when I'm writing a novel. In the afternoon, I run ten kilometers or swim 1500 meters (or both), then read for a while and listen to music. At 9 p.m., I go to bed.
Every day, I follow this routine without deviation. It's a type of mesmerism in which repetition itself becomes important. I mesmerize myself in order to achieve a deeper state of mind.
However, maintaining such repetition for an extended period of time — six months to a year — necessitates a significant amount of mental and physical strength. Writing a long novel is, in that sense, survival training. Physical strength is just as important as artistic sensitivity.
Something about the way Murakami describes his routine moved me. This part stood out to me in particular:
It's a type of mesmerism in which repetition itself becomes important.
Mesmerism has been a part of my life since I was a child; it's the feeling I get whenever I start a new habit. As a child, I hypnotized myself into brushing my teeth every morning. As an adult, I've hypnotized myself into being healthy by exercising on a regular basis. I've hypnotized myself into reflecting on my life by instituting a journaling routine.
Knowing I had completed a similar task in the past gave me a surge of motivation. By hypnotizing myself, I could become an early bird.
I've successfully transitioned into an early bird for the past three months. On average, I go to bed at 9 p.m. 6-7 nights per week. I normally wake up between 5 and 5:30 a.m.
I might try waking up even earlier in the future, but I'm content with my current routine and don't want to put too much pressure on myself. After all, getting 8 hours of sleep is good for you, isn't it?
I've tried numerous times in my life to become an early bird, but this is the first time it has actually worked. Here's how I went about "mesmerizing" myself—along with a few words about what didn't work.
What actually worked was gentler than you might think. Consider this a helpful guide to getting up early.

Clarify Your Reason for Waking Up

It's difficult to get up before everyone else. You won't do it if you don't have a reason to.
I don't just mean purpose in the sense of waking up wanting to do something.
I don't just mean purpose in the sense of waking up wanting to do something. Of course, you'll get up early to do something (probably productive). However, you must have a goal that goes beyond a simple task.
I'm about to graduate from university and enter what will arguably be the most important years of my life — years in which I'll have both money and freedom. If I ever want to be able to leave the 9-5, I need to act now. Working in the morning is more convenient than working at night, so I need to establish my habits now so that I can live that life later.
You may already have a purpose, but if not, conduct a 5 Whys analysis (otherwise known as root cause analysis).
To complete the 5 Whys:
  1. Create a problem statement.
  2. "Why is/are/does [your problem statement]?" asks the question.
  3. Make your response the next problem statement.
Continue to ask "why" until you've asked it five times or more.
Every day, I want to get up at 5 a.m.
What makes you want to get up at 5 a.m. every day?
I'd like to have more time to be productive.
Why do you want to increase your productivity?
I'd like to practice writing.
Why do you want to improve your writing skills?
I'd like to write books.
What motivates you to write books?
I'd like to make a living doing something creative.
Why do you want to pursue a career in the arts?
I believe it is the most fulfilling thing a person can do in their career.
Starting with a minor issue and working your way up to the root cause allows you to gain a better understanding of what you truly desire. It will assist you in determining whether waking up is part of the solution to your problem.
Waking up early gives you a few hours every morning when no one else will bother you. For the most part, that's all there is to it. That is, however, an important part of my solution to escaping a 9-5 rut and doing work I enjoy.

Understand What You Stand to Gain and Lose

I didn't consider what I'd have to give up when I first tried to become an early riser. I failed because I refused to give up things I enjoyed, such as my weekday social life. I'd go out, tell myself I'd wake up early despite getting home late, and then wake up late.
If you accept what you lose from the start, you won't keep trying to keep it when it's gone.
But let's be optimistic and start with the benefits.

What you stand to gain

Being an early riser means you have a few extra hours each day to do whatever you want. Nobody else is likely to be awake to bother you. You can paint, run a business, or write - whatever you want.
Because your prefrontal cortex is most active right after you wake up, it is ideal for creativity. I've discovered that I write much faster in the morning than at any other time of day. Many famous writers, based on their habits, have figured it out as well (most authors write in the morning).
A few hours alone with your most creative self is a huge win.

What you give up

There is no such thing as a free lunch. Getting up early does not give you more time. It takes away time you would have had at night unless you sleep less, which is a bad idea. If you sleep less, you will either be unable to wake up early and become a night owl again, or you will become a night owl again or you'll be sleep-deprived and unproductive all day.
In reality, I've lost time since I began getting up early. I used to sleep for 6 hours and then wake up with the need to get up and go to work. I can't do that when I wake up early because I don't feel compelled to get out of bed; I'm weak. So I get 8 hours of sleep. Otherwise, the temptation to stay in bed would be too much.
I've lost about 2 hours per day, but I feel rested all day.

Running out of time

I finish work at 5 p.m. because I am out of time (haha, 9–5). That means I have four hours after work to sleep. But there are a few things I need to get done in that time frame:
- Commute (1 hour) (1 hour)
- Cooking and eating (1 hour)
- Exercise (1 hour) (1 hour)
- Relax and unwind (1 hour)
That totals 4 hours. There isn't time to do anything else. Of course, these activities aren't always an hour long, but you get the idea. For me, winding down is especially important. I tried everything to get around it, but I still couldn't sleep.
On days when I don't exercise, I have dinner with friends to keep my sanity. Still, I only have so much time with them (around 2 hours).
I feel like I'm living in a box, but it hasn't been all bad. Being able to maintain this habit makes me feel eccentric and special.
I used to wonder how bodybuilders did it because all they did was eat, train, and sleep. Nothing else is done by them.
They are now clear to me. Living in a box brings with it a sense of purpose. You know you're training yourself for something.

Allow yourself one day off each week

I've discovered that if I mess up my sleep schedule one day a week, I can still stick to it the rest of the week. Sleeping late two or three days a week didn't work for me. But one appears to be fine.
I enjoy going out at night, so I've set aside one day a week (usually Friday) to spend more time with friends.
If you need to wake up early, I recommend that you make rules for it as well. Disciplined chaos is less likely to fail than pure chaos. Allow yourself one day per week to break the rules in order to compensate for what you believe you are losing.

Compare the costs and benefits

Consider the following two questions:
- What will I gain from having more time in the morning?
- What will I miss out on by not sleeping?
Then ask yourself, "Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?"
If they don't, waking up early is probably pointless. If they do, there are a few things that worked for me and will most likely work for you.

Concentrate on Sleeping Time

I failed when I told myself I was going to get up at 5 a.m. no matter what. If I slept too late, I'd do it. If I stayed out late at night, I'd do it. I'd do it if I didn't have to stay up late studying.
This was ineffective. I'm not sure what I was trying to accomplish by attempting to game the system, believing that my willpower would suffice.
This may work for people who already have this habit. But, if you're just starting out, concentrate on one thing: sleep.

Get enough rest

People frequently make the mistake of believing they can sleep the same amount as they normally do. For example, I had only slept for 6 hours the night before and assumed that I could sleep for 6 hours and still wake up early. This does not work because you will end up sleeping in; it is unlikely that you will have any willpower when it is pitch black outside.
Set an 8-hour sleep goal for the best chances of waking up early. I want to get up at 5 a.m., so my bedtime is 9 p.m. (8 hours before).

Sleep more than is necessary (when you start)

I didn't set my alarm for 5 a.m. when I first started. I didn't even set an alarm. You'll need some time to adjust to the drastic changes in your sleeping schedule. You'll need more sleep at first.
You've got the rest of your life to get up early. Spend some time now incorporating the habit into your daily routine. This is not a sprint; it is a marathon.
Waking up early means waking up in the dark. Allow your body to adjust to the darkness. It took me about a week; it may take you longer or shorter.
Every day, I naturally awoke earlier and earlier. I can now successfully get out of bed at 5 a.m. every day.

Don't Attempt to Change Everything

You can't make too many changes in your life at once. Changing your sleeping habits is a significant change. I know you want to get up and get to work right away. You want to do everything you couldn't do before.
Please be patient. If you don't, you won't be able to do anything extraordinary.

You can't make too many changes at once

Imagine yourself in the shoes of someone in desperate need of assistance. The 30-year-old man-child who still lives in his parent's basement and spends all day playing video games is an archetype.
If you were to give him life advice, you might say something like:
- Find work.
- Adjust your diet.
- Every day, go to the gym.
- Read a book.
- Create a side project.
Can you imagine how they'd go about it? They cannot do all of these things at the same time! If you told them to change everything at once, they'd be too overwhelmed and fall back into their old habits. You'd be more compassionate toward them and assist them in making those changes over time.
I can't even fix my diet and go to the gym at the same time, and I'd like to think of myself as a healthy member of society.
Likewise, you should only make one change at a time. For the time being, prioritize getting to bed early. That's all there is to it.
Increase your productivity gradually as you go. If your goal is to complete work in the morning, begin with 30 minutes of work, followed by an hour and so on.

Have a good time in the morning (when you start)

If you wake up feeling super motivated and ready to work, then go ahead and do it. However, if you don't feel motivated at first, just have fun.
I spent about two weeks getting up every morning and watching TV shows, YouTube videos, and Twitch streams. It was actually enjoyable to watch things when no one else was present.
I was eventually ready to start working. Believe me, you'll be ready to work soon. If your goal is to be productive, there's no way you're going to wake up every morning to mess around; it'll feel like such a waste.

Create a Morning Routine

Even after months of waking up early, I still have difficulty getting out of bed without my morning routine. I tried skipping it a few times, but it felt wrong — as if my morning routine is part of the waking up process.
A morning routine not only gets you ready for the day, but it also captivates you. I'm groggy and tired before my routine. After that, I'm energized and awake. It's the closest thing I've found to magic.
"Now that you've completed the first task of the day, you're ready to wake up," my brain says.
I journal as part of my morning routine, specifically morning pages. It's a Julia Cameron's Artist's Way exercise in which you write three longhand pages without pausing to think. It's intended to help artists by teaching them that perfection isn't required to create.
Instead of three A4 pages, I use four A5 pages. I'm not sure if they're the same number, but it doesn't matter how many words you write. But it's pretty close.
Near my bed, I keep a journal and a pen. They're the first thing I touch when I wake up (after turning on the lights).

A routine that works for you

You may already have a morning routine or have one in mind that you would like to try. Alternatively, you could do morning pages.
Here are some other morning routine practices I recommend:
- Meditation\sYoga
- Brewing tea
The actual routine is unimportant — at least for waking up. Different routines will provide different benefits, but the goal is to help you wake up. You want to instruct your body on what to do when it wakes up.

⏰ Get a Personal Alarm System

If I had one piece of alarm-related advice, it would be this: don't use an alarm to wake you up; instead, use it as an insurance policy.
I used alarms to try to cheat sleep when I first started using them. When you use alarms in this manner, you will wake up groggy and tired because you did not get enough sleep the night before.
If you don't want to dislike your alarm, make sure it's set to the time after you want to wake up. I set it for 8.5 hours after I go to bed, and I wake up without it.

Experiment with different alarms

You should experiment with alarms if you haven't already. Different alarms are appropriate for different people. Do a quick search for alarms on Google.
There are numerous alarms available. There are smart alarms, alarms that only sound when you get out of bed, and even phone apps that call you to wake you up. The latter would never work for me, but it could for someone who is very social.
If you don't want to do your own research, I have a suggestion.

Consider using a light alarm

I use a light alarm clock. A light alarm awakens you with light before awakening you with sound. It begins to shine a light 30 minutes before the time you set and gradually becomes brighter and brighter. Because it is dark early in the morning, this is useful for early risers.
I set it for 5:30 a.m., so it starts shining at 5 a.m. I never awaken to sound; I always awaken to light. It hasn't been easy to develop this habit, but now that I've made sure I get enough sleep first, the light is sufficient—never let a loud noise wake me up.

Sleep Without Using Your Phone

You can't sleep with your phone if you want to be productive in the morning. It's already difficult to get up before everyone else. Don't make things more difficult for yourself by allowing yourself easy access to addictive stimuli while you're sleeping.

A dull sleeping environment

Make your sleeping area as uninteresting as possible. You don't want to be excited before going to bed or after waking up.
The phone is the most common source of bedtime entertainment. If you use something else in bed, such as a tablet, I recommend you move it as well.
This accomplishes two goals:
- Enhances sleep
- It aids in getting out of bed.

There is no getting around it

I used to check my phone in bed all the time before I moved it to another room. I would text my friends. I'd check every social media app I owned. To fall asleep, I would watch YouTube. I thought it was good because I kept doing it and I was so used to falling asleep while watching TV.
There is an incredible temptation to use your phone in bed as long as it is within reach when you wake up. I'm not sure about you, but I've stayed in bed for hours tinkering with my phone.
I have no self-control, so I control my surroundings.

Place your phone in a different room

It's a simple concept, but it's not easy. It's as if you're giving away your child. However, the resistance is strong. It means you're putting an end to an addiction.
Choose a room with a charging station for your phone. This could be the living room, the kitchen, or, in my case, the study. Leave your phone there, and check it after you've gotten out of bed, not before.

Melatonin Can Be Used As Insurance

I've saved the most contentious for last. You can skip this section if you don't want to take any drugs.
Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone that controls the sleep-wake cycle. It is produced by your body at night to aid sleep. However, it is also available as a pill.
It is available without a prescription in the United States. Melatonin is found in some foods, so it can be sold as a dietary supplement under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994.


According to a 2001 study, the ideal dosage is 0.3 mg. The smallest melatonin dose I've found is 1mg. If you can find 0.3 mg, that's fantastic. I use 1mg and divide it in half (0.5 mg). It's not exactly 0.3 mg, but it's sufficient for me. I tried various dosages, up to 10 mg, and none of them worked as well as taking less.

Control your sleeping schedule

Melatonin will not help you if you don't go to bed on time every night. I attempted to game the system. It was ineffective.
Nonetheless, you will occasionally fail. You may have slept too late. You may have had your coffee too late in the day. You might wake up in the afternoon and have difficulty falling asleep early.
I fail. I'm not a monk with perfect discipline. When this occurs, I take melatonin.
Even though melatonin is not considered addictive, it should be used with caution. There is no evidence that melatonin is harmful, but it is possible to develop a tolerance to it.
My advice is to use melatonin when you've messed up your sleep schedule and can't sleep at your bedtime because you're too awake — but not too frequently.
I mentioned sleeping a lot. This is because the majority of waking up early is spent sleeping early and sleeping early is difficult. There must be sacrifices made. You can become an early bird if you are willing to make sacrifices.
There are some glamorous aspects to getting up early. You will be able to be productive. You have the impression that you have accomplished something before anyone else. In a world dominated by technology, you get hours of solitude. It's fantastic.

2023.03.21 20:10 nyriska Pen Randomly stopping mid stroke

I've spent $160 trying to fix this problem and I'm starting to think it's a glitch, not a problem with my hardware.
I bought Clip Studio Pro in December 2022. I was using a year-old Deco 01 V2 from Xppen on free softwares like Krita and Medibang, and the tablet always worked well. After I opened Clip Studio for the first time, there were immediate issues. The software randomly stopped detecting the pen mid-stroke, meaning I would have to undo and restart the stroke all over again. It was annoying, but manageable. However, the problem worsened over time, eventually becoming such an issue that the pen strokes would only last for a centimeter or so before stopping. I asked for help from CLIP STUDIO ASK, but nothing suggested there helped me, so figured that the issue must be in my tablet, pen, or both.
I wanted an upgraded tablet anyway so I recently bought a professional-grade graphics tablet (Deco Pro MW) and tried it with CSP. Buying a new tablet seemed to fix the problem temporarily. Clip Studio has worked fine for the past month that I've had this tablet, and just now the SAME ISSUE as before has come up. Consistently. I can't really draw on the software anymore because the constant stopping-and-starting is simply not worth the time I could spend drawing on other, free softwares. I know the problem is not my tablet hardware, pen or computer because all of those are very new, and seeing that the issue only happens with Clip Studio, I think the problem may be a bug in the software.
I've tried all the typical fixes: deleting drivers and reinstalling updated ones, using older drivers in place of the new ones in case there's a compatibility issue, deleting and reinstalling clip studio, unplugging my tablet, restarting my MacBook...
I will note that the reappearance of the issue began a few hours after the new csp update installed. Not sure if that has anything to do with the problem since it was happening BEFORE the update as well, but just something to mention.
Has anyone else been struggling with a similar issue? I almost want a refund at this point.
TLDR; Pen stopping mid stroke ONLY on csp, bought a brand new tablet to fix it & tried other fixes, nothing worked, is anyone else having this issue?

2023.03.21 19:12 ArtTeacher_XBL-PSN Issues with latest driver update

In the past 2-3 months, two Wacom Intuos tablets I have (PTH-651/K (a.k.a. Intuos Pro medium) and PTH-450 (a.k.a. INtuos5 Touch)) have stopped being entirely recognized with driver updates from the "Wacom Center" and "Wacom Tablet Properties" apps on my Windows 10 OS.

ANy ideas how to reverse this? (i.e. can I uninstall 2023 drivers and install older 2021 drivers at this point?)
