Pen not tapering lines - no sensitivity?

Please Help!
lately i can't get the pen to draw anything but solid lines with no variations no matter how i adjust pressure...it works on my older PC but on my new PC I can only get one thickness of line, ...I want to taper lines like a brush, but this thing isn't working. I have played with sensitivity settings and given Photoshop all the memory i can, but still this thing does not work right at all! Help!

a second issue is photoshop related...using the pad and pen in Photoshop, there is lately a big delay (1-2 seconds or more!) from drawing to seeing results, and that is a frustrating impossible mess...
Can i get this expensive product to work right? What do i have to do?

You should address this issue to Adobe people.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: After using my Wacom bamboo tablet with Photoshop

Try holding down whichever key on the keyboard that seems to be the culprit and then click with your tablet mouse.  I used to have this problem with my bamboo and I'm using Mac.  For me, it was like the control button was being held down when I'd let the computer idle for a long time.

Hi bmw530640.
Draw a line and check meanwhile whether or not the blue indicator light keeps burning on the top left of your tablet. If not, there's a bad contact between your pen and the tablet, probably due to a malfunctioning connection between the battery and the electronics of your pen. If so, ask for a new pen on the Trust company website.

Wacom CTE-440 Graphire4 tablet is drawing when I don't want it to


Ok so I called costumer service because mine was doing the same thing. Apparently the pressure sensor in the pen is stuck down. What you do is remove the pen tip with tweezers, blow in the open end of pen, then tap the pen (open end down) in a table to get any debris out of there. Then just put the tip back in and give it a try. That did the trick for me. Hope this helps.

Drawing problem in PS cs4


Go to your Brushes.

Click on the Brush Tip Shape tab.

Make sure the box is ticked that says 'Spacing' and set it as low as you can (1%) for the smoothest effect.

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.

Mildly annoying problem with pen pressure..


your pen nib might not be working, when you bought the tablet it should have come with three replaement nibs, just pull to old one out (i use my teeth (: ) and push the new one in, it shoudl fit pretty snugly.
