The pen worked fine at the beginning. Now it is very hard, because when I select an object or drw with a brush in Corel or Photoshop, the Pen won't "let go" The selected item stays "glued" to the pen and the brush strkes in the graphic programlms continue to draw when I remove the pen. I of course changed the battery

You need a software that support this, like Photoshop or Paintshop pro, also Corel Painter that comes with the pad, those software feels the pen pressure, you can then adjust what to do with pressure either to control brush strok width or/and color opacity, and thus...
In photoshop, press F5 to bring up your brush control window. Under shape dynamics and other dynamics and any other brush attributes you wish to control with your pen, make sure that control is set to "pen pressure" in the drop down menu. Hope that fixes it for ya.
Double click pen tablet icon in system try,then open button tab,under button command change Button Name from Pen Tip ( Default ) to Barrel Button 1 , click Ok and in Ps from Window meni select brushes,click Shape Dynamics (letters not square) and from shape dynamics dilog move Minimum Diametar slyder to right ( 100 %).This solved problem to me.I hope it will work for anyone else.I run xp sp3 on Windows.
I've had this same problem when I first loaded Corel Painter Essentials 4.
Try opening Corel Painter and then going to: Edit > Preferences Then there should be a box that says "General" click on that and when it gives you more options click on "Brush Tracking" Now try drawing on the scratch pad with a typical stroke and it should adjust the settings to detect your tablet.
I believe I understand what you are referring to. I can reproduce this same effect in Photoshop 6. The settings for tweaking this and other options like opacity is under the "BRUSH DYNAMICS" button for the particular brush. The default seems to have SIZE set to be managed by the STYLUS pressure. If this is changed to OFF, the size will remain constant, and you can use stylus pressure to change another dynamic. Hope this is of some help.
You need to use a bigger brush. the highest level of pressure is the full brush size (i.e, it won't ever make it bigger than the biggest size you select). It seems to work percentage-wise from that (half-pressure=half-size).
Also, make sure the setting are correct in the brush pallete (check shape dynamics and make sure the Control: is set to "Pen Pressure). Note that you can change it to control other things instead of size (I frequently use it on opacity to do sketches in a pencil style, and it works really beautifully).
Oh yeah, make sure you change the battery too. Mine came with it pre-installed and there wasn't enough juice, so I put one of my rechargeable's in and it worked fine.
