  • Depends on wacom tablet – joojaa Jun 5 '17 at 11:10
  • You have an issue with the Wacom Driver or the application preferences. If you have a tablet connected, pressure should be available there. Voting to close as "tech support". – Scott Jun 5 '17 at 13:44

There are 2 types of callighraphic pen nibs: with wide and narrow nibs. In case of narrow nib you apply pressure as you write: https://www.jetpens.com/blog/calligraphy-pen-basics/pt/689

Anyway, if you tablet supports pressure pen, pressure option should be able in case of calligraphic brushes, check you tablet settings. https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/how-to/illustrator-create-calligraphic-brush.html
