Since the anniversary update it is possible to completely switch of any touch input as long as the pen is active. Fixed any of the palm drawing issues for me completely! I only use the surface pro 2 with the wacom digitizer though so it was never a huge problem to begin with and I am not sure if it works just as well with the new pen tech.
I just played around with Leonardo and it looks really awesome. It marries the infinite Canvas of Mischief with useful sketchbook-like ruler and perspektive tools. The ellipse tool is even better than in sketchbook imo. That's basically all I always wanted. Why is this software not better known??

I'll look to see if those input on/off controls are on the Book as well. The important one for me is single finger touch to be controlled separately from multi-touch.

I stumbled across a reference to Leonardo in a blog, I hadn't heard of it either...downloaded the trial and liked it, so I contacted the author - he's a programmer in the EU and has been very responsive to my feedback - he's working on custom brushes and determining if we might be able to import brushes as well (like maybe the SBP brush families). Glad you liked it, I bought it (it was inexpensive).

I am considering using an Onda or Cube tablet with the latest specs and Win OS for sketching together with a third party stylus (the FiftyThree pencil looks great).
I imagine that 9.7" and 1200p is the minimum I can reasonably sketch with.
Does anyone have experience with these Asian brand tablets for professional use?

The ellipse tool alone is the reason I will switch to Leonardo, by the way :idea:
