Hi @Somebody4234234234, Sorry for the delayed response. We understand this is a long-standing issue, but it is resolved with update v26.2.1. Please update the app. This update fixes the issue of Wacom tablets not having pen pressure on macOS. However, if you are not using a Wacom tablet, then I would suggest you install both the Wacom driver & your tablet driver, which will help you get the pen pressure.

I don't own one of these tablets but the XP web site indicates the following:

 

How to Set up a Pen for Adobe Illustrator?

If you want to draw in Adobe Illustrator, you need to set up the pen and tablet with the software. Make sure that they are connected to the system so that you can easily create the drawings.

Open the tablet you are to connect and choose how you want to customise. Make sure to analyse the properties of the tablet. Next, you need to select the tool that is to be set. When the application row dialogue box appears, click on Illustrator, and you can customise it accordingly. If you want to customise it, you need to keep the software open and run it in the background. Make sure to click on the plus sign, then choose Illustrator and click on OK.

The hand tool is one of the most commonly used tools. As a result, you can switch to any pen depending on your requirement. The Grip Pen and Adobe Illustrator are some of the best properties, and depending on the tablet you're connecting, you can get the best results.

Hi @Somebody4234234234,

 

Sorry for the delayed response. We understand this is a long-standing issue, but it is resolved with update v26.2.1. Please update the app. This update fixes the issue of Wacom tablets not having pen pressure on macOS.

 

However, if you are not using a Wacom tablet, then I would suggest you install both the Wacom driver & your tablet driver, which will help you get the pen pressure. This is a tested resolution/ workaround for Non-Wacom tablets, and we have confirmed this with multiple users. Let me know if it works for you.

 

I hope this helps!

 

Thanks & Regards,
Anshul Saini
