Input Devices and Gim
I have started using a surface tablet with an NTrig pen. Initially I could not get it to work then I explored and worked out the need for the winTab driver. With that in place I get three input devices

Eraser, Puck and Stylus. I removed Puck as I do not have one and Stylus works fine. Eraser however does not work. When I use the stylus I see a circle the size of the brush moving even before I touch the screen. When I do touch the screen it starts drawing in the selected color.

When I use the eraser I get the same behaviour of the circle moving however Device status shows the highlighted device as Stylus. When I touch the screen the color in the palette changes , the device input changes to Eraser and the circle vanishes. Nothing draws on the screen in any color.

If I try to change the color of the paint using the eraser it changes the color of the stylus foreground paint.

It feels like there is something a bit off in the configuration here. I cannot find any other options though. I am living without by just changing between black and white on the palette when using a layer mask. It would be good to understand what I am doing wrong here though as this seemed quite logical until I tried to use it.
