Fixes: The following issues have been fixed.

  • All Grades
    • Fixed an issue where panorama materials may not appear after using Undo followed by Redo after adding the material to an existing 3D layer by dragging and dropping.
    • Fixed a problem in which grayscale or monochrome images would be imported with the expression color set to Color when imported from File menu > Import > Image.
    • Fixed a problem in which the Paint Density setting was not reflected in brush strokes when Color mixing was set to Running color in the Sub Tool Detail palette.
    • (iPad/Galaxy/Android/Chromebook) Fixed a problem where workspace materials could not be imported by dragging and dropping from the Material palette to the canvas on some tablet devices.
    • (Galaxy/Android/Chromebook) Hover over drawing on applicable devices has been added to the Tool category in the Preferences dialog. When this setting is turned off, it may fix the problem of unintended pen drawing on certain devices.
    • (iPad/iPhone) After changing the current monthly plan, the previous plan was shown as "Active" for a certain period of time, but now it will appear as "Cancelled."
    • (Windows) Fixed a problem where using integrated graphics for the graphic controller with a multi-display environment may cause Clip Studio Paint to force close if used on the sub-display.
    • (macOS) Fixed an issue where using Close with a shortcut key while operating the canvas with a touch gesture would cause the display on the command bar not to update and cease to function.
    • (Android) Fixed an issue on Android 11 and later devices that support DeX mode, where some elements would be enlarged if another monitor was connected in DeX mode.
  • EX/PRO
    • Fixed a problem in which Clip Studio Paint would force close when Brush size or other settings in the Tool Property palette were set, and the Object sub tool was used to select a frame border folder or a balloon layer with no lines.

Selected Test Results

What works

  • All functions that do not require Clip Studio Assets Login
  • Manual Import/Management of Assets/Materials in Clip Studio
    • assets download directly in Clip Studio Paint when dragged onto a canvas from the materials tab
    • this also works for new materials provided by Clip Studio such as the 3d panoramas and geometric objects
  • Story/Page/Comic management and import/export
  • Animation management, timeline and import/export
  • Clip Studio 3D Material Modeler material importing
    • it is a separate program for importing your own 3D models into Clip Studio Paint materials
    • the download for Material Modeler can be found further down on the same download page as Clip Studio Paint
    • installation must be in the same wine prefix as Clip Studio Paint

What does not

  • Clip Studio launcher Account Login, Material Cloud upload
    • will return error that email/password are incorrect (despite being correct)
    • basically anything needing 'authorization'
    • this includes the colorization API DeepAI paint drop down menu option
  • Clip Studio Services Tabs
    • will take a full minute to load the page and may cause the launcher to crash or freeze
  • Clip Studio launcher Fanzine/EPUB/Kindle Services
    • will return error that paint requires update (despite being latest version)
    • this does not prevent the creation and export of these products within Clip Studio Paint only the previews and import/export services associated with them in the launcher
    • the Kindle option requires the additional program of Kindle Previewer to be installed in the same wine prefix. Has functioned in the past but is not currently.

Cursor blinking/tablet/modifier key issues.

  • At the moment there isn't a long term functional workaround
  • Annoying as it is, min/maxing the window after using a modifier or shortcut key will allow use of the tablet pen again
    • As of wine 7.4 this may also result in being unable to use the drop down menu's post 'refocusing'
  • Additional options are using purely the tablet pen as if you are only using a screen and not using keyboard/modifier keys
  • Swapping from Xorg to Wayland as a screen compositor helps
  • This is a non issue for those using touchscreen only


To fix crashing:

  • apply/use concrt140 libraries in winecfg
  • install vcrun2019 with winetricks
  • install corefonts with winetricks 
    • clip studio may run fine until you start editing text then freeze up or crash
    • attempts to use fonts not install in the wine prefix may also freeze the program
  • if winecfg is set to Win10 try switching to 8.1 or 7

IF blackscreen and no canvas displayed: (should not happen)

  • apply/use dxvk in winecfg or with winetricks

Issues with tablet pressure

  • open CSP > File > Pen Pressure Settings
  • if the option is grey/disabled make sure you have an image/canvas open and it should become enabled

If you are having issues downloading assets directly in Clip Studio Pain

  • check that wine gecko and wine mono has installed properly
  • follow the Wine Wiki Networking instructions: HERE
    • this usually fixes it
  • ensure you have followed the Wine Wiki instructions for raw socket permissions: HERE

What was not tested

  • Any function that requires login on Clip Studios services. This includes the asset download and cloud data backup.
  • Networking and usage with smartphone, tab-mate, qumarion tools.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Fixing tablet pressure
by Magnus on Thursday July 7th 2022, 11:02
You can get the tablet pressure to work by running this in terminal:
sudo gpasswd -a $USER dialout
You need to be in the "dialout" group to have access to the serial devices in /dev. Wine automatically forwards them if you have access, so you don't need to change any wine settings.
(I tested this with a different version of both Wine and Clip Studio Paint. But I assume that's universal for at least all recent Wine versions.)
Unable to export Animations or Timelapses as .mp4 or .avi.
by Exi on Saturday May 28th 2022, 9:50
Not sure if this should go under bugs or not, because application otherwise runs fine.

I can export Animations as .gifs, but not as movies, .mp4/avi.
I don't get a message saying that it failed when creating the .mp4/avi.

Exporting timelapses just fails, with a message saying that it failed to export the timelapse.
It should be rendering the timelapse, and then asking where you would like to save the file, if I remember right from when I was using it on Windows.

It's probably a missing .dll, but no idea which one.
