To me this sounds very much like something GTK+ would do.

But this bug cannot be fixed before bug #19948 is fixed (tablet support on Windows completely broken at the moment).

The corresponding GTK+ bug (for GTK2) is here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=687193

Triaging: need info; normal severity.

Does this still happen with the current git master? A great deal has changed within MyPaint regarding button binding handling.

As I understand it, use of the pen Button1 prevents the mouse's Button3 (and presumably, Button2) from working, with or without modifiers. To me this sounds very like a Windows driver issue - it's not sounding like anything GTK does. Anything else affected, e.g. Gimp?

Could you please let us know:

  • Version numbers for drivers
  • Exact but minimal steps needed to reproduce the problem, including hardware if it could be an issue there.
  • What behaviour you expected during those steps, in detail.
  • Where the behaviour differed from what you expected.

Found that when in draw with the pen , mouse function goes off. If i try to draw something the move use the right mouse button to move does not work, to zoom does not work. If i click on a menu item then the mouse goes on again.

This did not happen in 0.9
