Hello i am having a problem with adobe photoshops pen pressure. When i go into my tablet settings and go to pressure test it works fine there but in photoshop it just wont work. Ive looked up every tutorial there is and still havent found a fix. Another thing to note is that when i select the pen pressure setting in ps brush settings there is a triangle with a exclamation mark in the center. And also some tutorials say to select the support tablet pc feature in settings but mine is grayed out it wont let me check it.

Thanks!

Hi. This is my first time posting and saw you just posted this a few days ago.

For the record:
Windows 10
CC Photoshop 2015.5
There is an update but I haven't installed it yet.

I just wanted to add that I too got the h420 drawing pad and I have the same symptoms as the OP. I get this triangle warning sign by the pen pressure drop down.

Just wanted to add to the conversation here in case this may help with getting an answer, that the pen pressure seems to work with the demo ArtRage software. When I put pressure on the pen, the strokes change as one would expect. I'm not sure why it won't work on Photoshop. To me, it can't be the hardware but maybe we are using an old driver. In any case I just wanted to add that ArtRage works, so if that gives any clues to solving this then there ya go.

I'll check if there is maybe some new driver with Huion as I just used the one that came from the box in the CD.

SOLVED! Wacom-Cintiq Pen Pressure Sensitivity Incompatible When Windows Ink Enabled-Photoshop CC-CS6...

Just follow the file path above. To confirm, I placed the text file in the Photoshop CC 2015.5 Settings folder. I don't know if it'd make any difference if you put it in the Photoshop 2015 Settings folder (notice 2015 and not 2015.5). I placed it in the update folder.

C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5 Settings

Basically
1.) Got to the file path up above. Make sure in your windows explorer menu to go to view and unlock your hidden items (its in the video).

2.) Make a text file named PSUerConfig.txt

3.) Add this in the file:

# Use WinTab

UseSystemStylus 0

4.) Open up Photoshop and brush away. Sensitivity should be there. At least it was for mine.


When I put pressure, I get the sensitivity of the strokes on Photoshop. Hope this works for you!

My Settings:
Windows 10
Photoshop 2015.5 (just updated like 2 days from today).

Did you ever find a fix for this? I'm using a MacBook Pro and I have even let Adobe support have access to my Mac and the guy couldn't figure out how to fix this issue.
