Pen skipping in Photoshop CS3 with Intuos 3

When I try to use my stylus on the tablet in PS CS3, it will initially place a mark when I apply pressure, then skip down without drawing a line at all to the end of my stroke.  My computer has plenty of resources to allow for Photoshop, I'm not sure what the problem is.

Does the Wacom Intuos2 Classic Pen (xp 300e) work with the Wacom Bamboo CTL 470 tablet?

From what I read on Wacom's site, they are NOT compatible.
The Bamboo use a stylus that is different than the nib pens that the Intuos use. The stylus for the Bamboo is more like the stylus you can purchase for smart phones. The Intuos pens are pressure sensitive and have different nibs you can use for different effects and feel. You can go to their website and look for compatible pens and stylus' for your specific tablet.

Pressure sensitivity problem in Photoshop CS3

OK, I found the problem -- if you open photoshop with the mouse (whether it be through the quicklaunch bar, start menu, or desktop icon), the pressure sensitivity doesn't work. If you open it with the stylus or function button (I have a function button mapped for photoshop now because of this, since there's no icon on my tablet's display with how I have my display set up) the pressure sensitivity works fine.

A quick KIND of fix, but until Adobe actually does something about it, this is probably the easiest way to do it.

Pen pressure and scale problems

I also use Intuos 3 tablet, did you already try replacing the tip and reconfiguring the pen to the screen? You can find this in the driver software, it synchronizes the pen and tablet.
If you already tried that, does the problem only occur in Photoshop? Also, check your brush preferences, you can go back to your default settings and see. If talking to Wacom fails, you might have a bad pen or tablet.

'Lag' or Trailing Line

I just did some more experimenting and it seems that if I replace the tip of the pen, it starts to react better, not great, but definitely better.

Again, I'm using an Intuos 3. On the Intuos 2 I was using, if I replaced the tip, it would improve, but I was going through tips every two months or so. That's why I bought the 3, thinking it would be better because I've never experienced this problem with my 3 at home (these problems are all happening at work). I'm not sure which tablet your have or if you have the spare tips that come with it, but that might be your solution.

Also, check your Wacom settings and make sure the "tip double click distance" is set to "Off". That should help a little.

Another forum post suggested not using the stylus stand or holder. It could...not sure that it actually does...damage the stylus tip so that it reacts as if pressure is being applied. My stylus at home is always in the stand and, since it does have this problem, makes me wonder if this is valid....but why chance it...different stands and different stylus.

Good luck and hope this helps!!!
