I have a tablet and every time I try to draw, it drags around... kinda hard to explain but even after I lift the pen, it continues drawing unless I lift my hand twelve feet in the air.

Ummm can't explain it very well, but it looks like this:

I've tried restarting the computer and pulling out the little nib and tapping the pen a few times (not sure why but google says to do this). It happens on both SAI and Gimp and I'm really frustrated. It has actually been happening for over a year just some days it's manageable and other days it's completely useless.

What tablet is it? Try reinstalling the drivers, updating the drivers, whatever else related to the software, change up settings maybe.

This happens to me sometimes.  srs I always pull out the USB port , close Sai/Gimp/PS/whatever, reactivate the drivers, restart the computer, start the driver settings and make sure the settings are right, then resume drawing. That usually works for me.

Sorry for neglecting this thread, especially sorry to those trying to help me, or in a similar situation and hoping for updates!

This is the tablet I use:

Ordering a new pen seemed to have done the trick, I opened it up and found it was quite funky inside. I think from my cats knocking over my coffee lol. I did reinstall the drivers and check for any updates and messed about with various settings before ordering the pen, and it would work for a little while, but then go back to being weird. I think in this case, it was just damaged.

Thanks for your replies! Even though this time it was my fault for being a slob, I did have these dragging problems with my very first tablet, so it's nice to know that others had the same struggles haha.
