I am on windows 10. Just installed Lazyneumi. I tried using the Smooth pulled string preset with the rulers set to elliptical.
It works fine but when I move the center of the ellipse to another point in the canvas, Expresii freezes. It deposits paint at the point I start but it
does not follow the circumference of the ellipse but stays stuck at the starting point. When I quit out of Lazyneumi, the problem in Expresii stays
which suggests that the bug is in Expresii. Please take a look. Thanks

I looked at what went wrong. It's mainly due to NLP stealing the foreground window (standard function GetForegroundWindow() would return a different value) and once it's changed, our own functions are messed up. So, it's incompatibility rather than a bug.  Afterall, it's NLP that intercepts the functions trying to inject its own functions into other programs. Smile

[2019-09-01 update] Now the latest version (since 2019-09-01) works with NLP (for some systems - see later this thread):

(those previously donwloaded verison 2019.08.21, please down from the above link and install over v2019.08.21, because v2019.08.21 has a bug in app updating)

not completely issue free, but okay to work with: if you use stylus, when you drag the control points of LNP, Expresii would still deposit ink as if brush is pressed down. You can either perform an undo, or just use a mouse to adjust the control nodes instead.  Sometimes, hotkey doesn't work but you can just use your stylus to do a press-down (and then do a undo to remove the unwanted paint deposition), and then hotkeys would work again.

I make it an user option for now:

See if it runs okay on your system. Cheers. Very Happy

Further testing results from my side:

We don't get modification by Lazy Nezumi Pro (LNP) on the mouse pointer coordinates as reported by our standard MouseMove event handler on certain machines (Surface Book 2 and Surface Go) if we use the Surface Pen. However, using a mouse give the expected coordinates modification by LNP.  But the same Expresii running on a Surface Pro 4 is fine for both Surface Pen and mouse.

And I don't understand why.

Our own testing summary:
What works: Mouse, Wacom, Surface Pen on Surface Pro 4
What doesn't work: Surface Pen on Surface Go & Surface Book 2
