How to end a brush tool or pencil tool stroke at a precise place when using a Wacom pen and tablet.

Hello,

I'm somewhat new to using a Wacom tablet and pen with Illustrator, and I'm having trouble finding a solution. When using the Illustrator brush or pencil tools, the Wacom pen is sensitive to the tablet at a short distance above the surface. That means that it keeps drawing the stroke as I lift the pen away when trying to end the stroke. Which adds more to the stroke than I want.

 

With a regular mouse, it's just a matter of right-click, drag to draw, release the right-click and the stroke ends. But the Wacom pen keeps interacting with the tablet and Illustrator as I lift it off the tablet, and keeps drawing a stroke until the pen is finally too far away. How do I make the Wacom pen end the stroke when I stop moving the pen itself?

 

Thanks!
