Pen tool not actually drawing

I haven't used my genius pen tablet in a while. I downloaded the drivers from the genius website and then curser moves around with the pen but when I try to draw using photoshop it just makes a dot but doesn't actually draw a long, just the dot where I started drawing. When I use my touch pad on my mac it draws a line but with the pen tool on the tablet it only makes a dot. Is there anything I can do?

    Just Adobe Photoshop CS4. I downloaded the drivers from Genius for my Mac, wasn't sure if it was compatible with Mac but saw they had drivers for Mac so must work.

    Same problem. I notices that it happens after 2 seconds of inactivity. It starts working again if you minimize then maximize the photoshop window.

    Mine needed a new battery and I had to calibrate it. I found it hard to use with photo editing programs, Photoshop, Corel, Photo Editor. There might be a control in Photoshop for selecting, mouse or pen, either in the tools or preferences menu.

    What program are you using it with?

I also solved the problem by installing the driver from the website. The trick was to uninstall the old driver first.

    same problem again.. i've uninstalled and installed over and again.
    the main problem is that when i use it in photoshop then i cant draw a curve/wavy line. it just draws a straight line from the point i started and the point i end.
    the mouse does the work allthe time ,a nd the pen stops after 5seconds once i reinstall the driver. it must be some settings becoz it workd well for first few seconds.

Pen Lag?


I had a serious lag issue with Genius Easypen F610E. You draw a square but the signal is laggy and it is unable to draw it properly. Leaves even a trace behind (see pic below with black squares). Searched the internet for solutions, it seems some others have the same issue.
Changing battery didnt help. Changing computer and OS didnt help. But its an issue of electrostatics (pen, tablet, your body) as I noticed. I needed to wrap a foil around the pen's upper part, and connect it to battery's minus terminal. That fixed the lag problem. Its not pretty, but it works.(see green squares in the picture).
It's seems to be a design flaw.

My Genius Gpen 4500 has shown no Pressure recognition on Photoshop, Painter and the wizard.


Hello. I'm not quite sure if this will be useful for you, but i'll tell you what happened to me. I bought the very same model but without the mouse, the G-pen450. When I just bought it, I just intalled the driver from the CD, and both the painter X and photoshop cs1 trials included. I had no problem when I was drawing in photosho cs1, but when I uninstalled it and and installed photoshop cs2, I was still able to draw with the pen, but it had no pressure sensibility, no matter how hard did I press the pen against the table or how many times i enabled or disabled the pressure settings in both photoshop and the tablet driver.

what i did was downloading the new driver (the 2.0 version) for the g-pen450 from the genius page, and simply installed it ... and it didn't work, worse; now even the pen suite didn't recongize the pressure control, so, what I did was to uninstall the WHOLE software included with the table along with the driver, and then I reinstalled the new version (2.0). After I installed it, the instaling program asked me to restart the computer, so I did it. Then, after the computer was done restarting, I connected the tablet to a USB port, and then the computer recognized it, actually it told me that it recognized the tablet, two HID compatible dispossitives, and a HID compatible mouse pen. It opened that window that appears everytime you connect new hardware to the computer, and it proceeded to "install" all the drivers needed for the dispossitives.

After the computer finished installing, it asked again to restart the PC, soooo I restarted it again, when it was done, I connected the tablet once again, and this time it displayed that "your new hardware is installed and ready to use" balloon on the bottom right corner of the screen. So I tried opening photoshop CS2 again and drawing with the tablet, and this time it did work perfectly.

I think it's matter of uninstalling the old driver, and the bundle software (annotate all, pen commander, pen mail, pen signer, etc. ) and then instaling the 2.0 version of the driver.

G-Pen F610 blind spot (pen won't move over particular section)


Sometimes it is caused by a metal plate coming in contact with the sensor pad inside of the tablet. It is only fixable by dismanteling the tablet and putting an A4 sheet of paper between the back side (the one that has the metal plate which can be the culprit) and the green pad (do not touch it!). This issue usually appears after continuous use when the green sensitivity pad is pushed down a little and is short-circuited by the metal pad on the inner side.

My pen wont respond on the tablet


No software aside from drivers are necessary. The Genius Tablet comes a configuration menu you can test. If you don't have this, you can get it for free from Genius' website.

You need to hold the pen close to the tablet to allow it to detect movement. I hold my pen <1cm from the surface. You may want to check the batteries.

Genius G-Pen 450


Try here, this is the company's website, I downloaded there the version of the driver for XP, once you're in the site, click on "product", then on the section "tablet", once there you just have to search for your tablet model and click on "more", it will sen you to the specifications of your tablet, and there you will find the download section, you just have to pick the operative system you're using and then click on "download" to get the driver you need.
