Max 3 v2.3 Neo Reader App: broken palm rejection and stray lines / disappearing ink

    I have the same issue on a Note 2 both with NeoReader and the builtin KNotes application where while the stylus is hovering less than 1mm above the screen while resting my hand on it at the same time, the pinch-to-zoom is going crazy forcing me to have to completely turn off touch using the toolbar - which heavily slows down my workflow.

    There is something very very wrong with the palm rejection on these devices at the moment. You should not need to enable/disable touch ever - it should just work as it does in other stylus equipped devices.

    RWX, try writing on an ebook in the NeoReader application somewhere near the right of the screen (assuming you are left handed) and moving your pinky finger (5th finger) on and off the right edge of the screen. Let me know if this causes either ink you've written to disappear (permanently or temporarily) or stray lines to be drawn on the page.

    With both pinch-to-zoom and pan enabled, I don't get the stray lines or disappearing ink in neoreader doing as you suggest, but do get the crazy touch behaviour. Either I'm not doing it in the same way, or the Note 2 doesn't have that particular issue.

    It could be a hardware difference, as when I had both the Max 3 and Note 2 side by side and was testing both at the same time - I noticed that the Wacom hardware on the Max 3 was showing a lot of jitter (can easily see by zooming up) where the Note 2 had almost no jitter when testing with different Wacom branded pens. The Max 3 made my handwriting look a lot worse than it did so I kept the Note 2 and returned the Max 3.

    For the pan and zoom issue while writing - PLEASE ONYX disable touch when the stylus is near the screen like all other devices I have ever used! It's such a simple thing to fix!

    I can report that the stray lines issue when the finger is on the side of the screen was fixed in v2.3.1 but there are still other situations that cause stray lines to appear and the ink to disappear. The palm rejection is also not fixed and as buggy as ever.

     

    Please fix the stray lines, ink problems and palm rejection!
