    So far there has some annoying things im dealing with.


    Internet gets cut off to limited and needs a restart, connecting speed off batter is slow.

    99% charge and stops.

    Pen looses paring ( bluetooth turn off then on fixes.)

    Trackpad very unresponsive and hard to use like the first pro. At times needs to be detached and reattach to fix.

    firefox scroll smoothly at time and then it doesnt.

    Needs hard pressure on pen for dark marks drawing.

    hope these could be patched.

    Have you downloaded the firmware update from yesterday? What about the n_Trig driver update for 64 bit from the following link?

    Wintab - N-trig

    This could very easily be a router issue.

    This is not a defect, it is a battery safety feature to prevent premature wear. let it run down and charge it, eventually it'll hit 100%. It won't, however, start charging until it drops below 95%

    The pen stays off until you press the button. if the SP3 detects it, it's paired.

    I haven't experienced this issue AT ALL, and I've been swapping it in and out all night like a boss.

    I'd blame that one on Firefox. Chrome has it's own set of issues. IE works great, but then comes that whole "security" thing.

    Pay particular attention to MickeyLittle's post. the fix for this is there.

    Yeah, what is up with Chrome on the SP3? It looks horrible. Is it having issues with the high resolution?, or the desktop scaling?, or maybe it's the combination of the two?

    UPDATE: I found a fix for Chrome... it works perfectly and Chrome is gorgeous now. But it is a bit of a hack and i don't want to post something dangerous. Feel free to PM me if you want the details.

    Has anyone had trouble reconnecting to the internet after waking it up from sleep? The only way for me to fix this is to restart the computer or potentially reinstall the network adapter o_O

    The n-Trig WINTAB driver offers backwards compatibility with Adobe/Wacom's old Ink API...any app that uses the Windows Native Ink API will see no difference. So legacy versions of Photoshop, Flash, Sketchbook (desktop) will get pressure sensitivity. The Updated Adobe CC (including Flash) uses the native ink API.

    I have to toggle WiFi on and off, perhaps you can try that instead of a full restart.
