wow, a new journal so soon...
well, actually, I desperately need your advise
about 3 weeks ago, my old mouse had to be replaced by a new one.
( the left mousekey was ... overused )
So I worked with that new mouse for a while, for university work and so on, for which it works kinda well.
You know that I draw all my stuff with my mouse, right?
It's like... uh... "my mouse is an extension of my hand", and stuff
Well, now I actually have holidays, and I start drawing, and suddenly come to realize "that new mouse is really REALLY bad!" for precise drawing! Not only is it unprecise, but also, harder to move the mouse itself precisely
I've tried to cope with it for a couple weeks now, but no, it just sucks.
So I looked up the technical details of both old and new mouse, and surprisingly it turns out the new mouse has 800dpi, and the old one 400
err... shouldn't the new one be better then?
So, like... maybe the settings are wrong?
It came with Logitech MouseWare 9.79... i don't see any settings for changing the dpi-precision...
I already tried messing around with the settings but it doesn't actually help, tried to use a mousepad for a chnage but it doesn't actually help either
I still have both mice (though the old one's left mousekey doesn't work anymore, sadly -_-) -
and srsly</b>, drawing with the new mouse feels like trying to draw with half of my hand cut of or something!
So what I'm doing right now is using the old mouse with the broken left mouse-button, but press the left button on the touchpad of my laptop now.
That also feels extremly contra-intuitive...
And now I'm uncertain if I screwed up the settings so much that this whole thing makes me even notice the difference during normal working....
So... got any words of wisdom for me?
Or otherwise I'm just going out tomorrow to just buy another one...
without knowing what to look for in order to avoid the same problems again...
Bought myself a new mouse now, this one seems fine by me, so journal's no longer of much relevance... err...
have a nice day!
