The new laptop has one fatal flaw..
Although I’m slowly getting used to it, the trackpad doesn’t actually have physical buttons, as such.
The whole trackpad clicks down for a click, and depending on whether your finger is in the bottom right corner or not, it’s either a left click or a right click.
For most tasks this is mostly suitable, but for things like drag’n’dropping it’s a total pain in the arse.
Especially if you’re trying to “Right-Drag”, where things become incredibly complicated.
Aside from that, pixelart has become infinitely more difficult.
I keep trying to plot precise pixels, then move my thumb over to “left-click”, but forgetting that the “mouse button” area is still a touchpad, so my thumb movement moves the damn pointer..
Previously that area had been a plastic physical button, so swiping my thumb over it wasn’t a problem.
It’s something to learn. And I’m sure I will.
But trying to animate Samurai Plat, yesterday, was a frustrating experience!!
Daily Doodle : Captain Plat
Sailing the seas and killing for gold.
Captain Plat and his parrot, Mrs Twinkles, rule the waves.
The laptop works a treat, I guess.
I complain, but it isn’t too bad.
At least the hard drive’s nice and quick,
and the Sticky Notes no longer lag.
Previous Laptop : Should’ve been a sign!! Hard Drive Failure Imminent!
