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.

    My pen works perfectly in paint, but it doesn't work properly in Photoshop.

    My tablet also does this in PS, and also in Corel Painter.

    I have the same problem, also in ToonBoom

    I also have the same problem.
    On Photoshop CS3 and Painter.
    I've tried reinstalling drivers and graphic apps and nothing.
    It started out of nowhere.

    I have the same problem; I've even replaced the tablet cover, believing the problem to be caused by scratches on the old one, but nothing improved after the replacement.

    Yup! I just got an Intuos3 A5 and the damn thing skips in the middle of stroke...but only at random. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. I have the current driver 6.1.0.6 installed and this happens in ALL programs

Jukebox makes records skip.


Most skip problems are caused by a worn stylus or not enough pressure being applied to the stylus. This being caused by the weight on the end on the tone arm being off place.

Digitech turntable - skipping stylus and arm


You might need to apply more pressure to the stylus. There should be a weight on the end of the arm, it should have a control to move it up and down. The only other thing is the stylus damaged from transit?

Before you start Photoshop press and hold the shift key and wait until photoshop has loaded.
This should take care of the problem.

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.

'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!!!

Windows Vista Issues


Omg... I just found out how to get around this problem, so see if it works for you. I found that I could download a special driver that would cause the 12000u aiptek tablet to work. Here's what it is called:

hp12000u_vista_driver_beta

Download the driver, restart your computer, and there ya go! Saved me from having to spend even more money on a new pen tablet.

I found it simply by searching for "aiptek 12000u vista downloads" or whatever. Hope this helps!

Touch screen problem


I have seen a similar thing on a 680, and was only fixed by changing the screen. You could try cleaning the touchscreen film with an Isopropyl alcolhol wipe, but I think it's the screen gone bad.
