The following is from XP-Pen, for users who are having cursor trouble with Paint Tool Sai. They have given me permission to share this free download of SAI for users who are having issues. (I’m going to remove it end of March, but can send it to users on request if they are having trouble with their XP-Pen and Sai.
Note: if your issue is that you’re using a pen that has an eraser tip and the eraser tip doesn’t work with SAI but that’s the only problem you’re having,, then the link won’t solve your problem. SAI is not on the list of programs that work with the eraser tip.
1. SAI only supports windows version.
2. Actually, SAI has a lot of bugs and the users question there are 2 ways “maybe” can solve them.
Method 1. Use this installation of SAI:

Q: My tablet won’t work with Paint Tool SAI; the cursor will not move at all. Other creative software does not have this issue.
A: Please follow these directions:
- Ensure that all tablet drivers, including your XP-Pen driver, are uninstalled completely. To do this, open Start >> Control Panel >> Programs and Features and check your programs list. Reboot your computer after uninstalling any tablet software.
- After rebooting, click “Start,” then search for “Tablet preferences.” If you find a match, you still have tablet software installed; please repeat step 1.
- Reinstall your tablet’s latest driver from the Support >> Downloads section of our website. Reboot once more.
- Ensure that your tablet functions correctly in software other than SAI.
- Open your SAI installation path, then open “misc.ini” in a text editing program such as Notepad.
- Scroll down to “TabletMouseSimulation.”7.
- If it is set to 0, please change it to 1, then save and exit.8.
- If it is set to 1, please change it to 0, then save and exit.9.
- Open SAI and test for the issue.
