How can I activate the ASUS Active Stylus to draw in Photoshop?

Hello everyone 🙂

 

I recently purchased the ASUS Zenbook Flip 14 and the ASUS Active Stylus Pen.

I can write and draw using the Stylus in several Apps, just as well as using it as a mouse to navigate.

 

But in Photoshop, I can only draw with the Touchpad/Mouse on my Convertible. The tip of the Stylus appears as a cross on my canvas just as it would with my mouse, yet when I start painting a shape with the pen, no line appears on screen. 
I tried to ask google for help, changed several settings (Windows Ink, Brush-Settings in PS) but nothing changed.

 

Do I have to connect my Stylus to Adobe / PS seperately? 
Did I pick the one maufacturer that is not supported by Adobe?

 

I hope someone can help...

 

Thanks in advance 🙂
