I just bought my new Wacom Intuos Draw and it's working really well, but in Photoshop 2015.5 and Illustrator 2015.3.1 the pressure sensitivity is not working. When I go to Wacom tablet properties I can see that the pressure sensitivity is working well so is the Intuos incompatible with Adobe programs or should I change something in the settings to make the pressure sensitivity work?

OS: Windows 10 64bit

  • What kind of brush are you using? The brush needs to be set up to accept pressure.

For Illustrator you can go to brushes and chose "Touch Calligraphic Brush" But if you want to make your own pressure sensitive Brush press new Calligraphic brush Change the size from fixed to "pressure" and pull "size variation" till the very end then change whatever you want in the brush options but REMEMBER if change the size later you should also change the variation.

For Photoshop open Wacom tablet properties at the top you can see bar called "Application" you will find Photoshop in the bar (if you couldn't find it open Photoshop Then restart Wacom tablet properties) Press it then press "Mapping" And be sure that "Use Windows Ink" is Checked. Now go back to Photoshop chose your brush tool then at the end of the second bar you will see icon that has a pen and circles press it and here you go
