Wacom Intuos PTK 640 and pen will not move Lightroom sliders. I can tap the slider but can't slide it. Windows 10 and lightroom are all up to date. Uninstalled and reinstalled my Wacom and no luck. Any other thoughts? BTW Windows Ink, disabled or enabled..no difference.

Just checked Lightroom Preferences and changed to allow Graphics Processor and all is good again.

This has to be my answer because this is my exact issue but I'm not finding anything in preferences to "allow graphics processor"

Using lightroom cc in windows 10 please help.

Thank you

The solution suggested above is not working for me, Sliders are very hard to move, when I use my mouse it works fine, with the pen, not so much, very frustrating

Did you manage to find a solution for that?

 

For me when I try to move a slider, it does nothing until I move it at about +/- 20 and then it does. That way I can't make minor tweaks.

 

UPDATE: Windows ink uncheck worked.

my fix was as follows-

In the wacom tablet pen setup, under the mapping tab, uncheck "use windows link"

All is good now.

I don't have a "use windows link" in my options for mapping, or anywhere else.

Make sure you select Lightroom as "application" before you go to Mapping. If you do not have Lightroom in this area, hit the + on the right side and scroll down until you find it and then add it.

I just solved the same problem - thank you, good advice. Just to add, if this doesn't work, you need to make sure you have selected the app. I had already disabled Windows Ink in general and in Photoshop, but didn't notice it was still selected in LightRoom, so thought this tip didn't work. As soon as I noticed this and deselected it, I had no problems.

You Sir have saved the day, the month and the year. I was starting to have that squinted look in my eyes when looking at the tablet. It days were about to be counted. Now all is jolly good and I can create without interupts to my flow. Thank you so much!

works for me too. Thank you so much (wacom intuos). Unselect window ink for Photoshop, Illustrator and Lightroom to avoid problems with the other two too.
