    Any idea why my pen markups appear choppy (almost like an irregular dotted line) before they correct themselves and appear correctly (I think this is called rendering)? Happened first in BB 11 and again in Revu 12. I always wonder if there is a way to skip this rendering phase and have it appear in real time (like OneNote).

    Hi Max, There is a Pen Commitment Interval option in Revu’s Preferences that can reduce the delay between the initial writing when using the Pen and when it “smooths” during rendering.

    Press CTRL+K to open the Preferences in Revu and then select Tablet from the Preferences list. Change the “Pen Commitment Interval”. We’ve found that 200ms seems to work well. Hope this helps.

    Hi Jenn, thanks for your reply. That helped the delay issue but it is still choppy before finalizing rendering (almost like a dotted line or spray can option in paint). It’s absolutely bizarre. I even reinstalled multiple times and it didn’t change anything. Only on my tablet pc does this happen (surface pro).

    While I’m here Jenn, if I had one suggestion for the BB team, it would be to make Revu’s pen markups function more like OneNote or PDFAnnotator. Where the writing is as much as pen and paper that a tablet can be. I think it could make a world of difference for those of us with tablets with pressure sensitive wacom/tablets. Just my $0.02.

    with surface 3 pressure effect seems to show only after stroke is finished, can this be changed to realtime?

      Hi Chris,

      You may have your Pen Commitment Interval set too high. Try decreasing it by small amounts (steps) to see if that helps.
