I want to control only the opacity and flow with my pen pressure, and want to remain brush size constant through out the brush stroke. I have turned on Opacity Jitter and Flow Jitter from Transfer tab in brush pallet and all other options are tuned off. But, still I am getting size jitter.

Why this is happening?

Answer from @joeparis from :

Make sure you haven't enabled the "Override" button. If you select this then your tablet/pen controls size.

Thanks for this. A while back my tablet's pen pressure stopped working and I assumed it was the hardware. Turns out I must have accidentally flipped that switch. – Johannes May 21 '12 at 22:40
@johannes In fact whenever I face this issue, I first try with restarting PS followed by detaching the hardware. Sometimes these solves this issue. – iamcreasy May 22 '12 at 0:43
