All right so my problem is this: I have a Huion Inspiroy Q11K Tablet. It works fine and dandy with other programs, but does not work with Photoshop 2020. I have updated drivers, I have reinstalled Photoshop, and I have unchecked Windows Ink. Nothing has worked at all. I would appreciate any help that does not refer to a wacom tablet or windows ink enabled, please!!

 

I just want Photoshop to recognize my tablet and use pen pressure.

In previous versions, you could control pen pressure either through Windows Ink or through Wintab.  With the current version of Photoshop you need to use Windows Ink. To do that : 1. In your tablet properties make sure the tablet is set to use Windows Ink. 2. If you have previously use PSUserConfig.txt to stop Photoshop from using Windows Ink and force it to use WinTab, then you need to remove that text file. 3. Following 1 and 2 - close and restart Photoshop. That's it - your tablet should no...

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with pen pressure while using your Huion tablet with Photoshop. Would you mind telling us the exact version of Photoshop you are using. Did you start facing this issue after the latest Photoshop update? Please ensure you have all available Windows updates installed on the computer.

 

Adobe does not test or officially support Huion tablets. You can check out some of the steps suggested here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/tablet-support-faq-photoshop.html

If the issue still persists, we would request you to contact Huion support.

 

Regards,

Nikunj

That's it - your tablet should now work through the Windows Ink interface.

Hi. Today I've faced with the same issue. I have Huion Kamvas gt-221 Pro. In ZBrush pen pressure works but in Photoshop doesn't... I have latest version of tablet drivers and latest version of Photoshop... Step 1 and 2 I did like you mentioned above.

Has there been a solution for Macbook Pro 2019, with the BigSur update version? Same thing is happeing, there is pen pressure enable and it works through Photoshop (recent version too,and this year's 2021), however my driver doesn't work at all and says it's disconnected. Tried every single troubleshooting step out bthere for this and have even specficially have looked on FAQ and troubleshooting areas on Huion's website for the KAMVAS 20 (2018) model, and absolutely nothing works. Even tried ordering a new usb cord for the tablet monitor and tried different usb outlets, as there are 3 outlet /ports on my usb-c hub, butn that even didn't work either. I've also tried installing other driver versions and same result. Others with this kamvasn monitor model, and the kamvas 16 and 19 are having the same problem too.... Of course main question was, is there a solution or workaround to change the pen pressure inside of photoshop rather than the tablet monitor driver itself.(?)

Hi there! I am having a similar problem: 

 

I have a Huion USB pen tablet, model H420 and I'm using it on my MacBook Pro 2019 which is running Big Sur 11.5.2. For the life of me I can't get the pen pressure settings to work in Photoshop 2020. I'm thinking it's a Photoshop issue rather than the driver, because the pen pressure works on online painting programs. 

 

I've read a ton of answers to this question and many of them have to do with using the Ink pad options -- but I don't have Ink on my computer; I'm not even sure it comes with Big Sur (I looked here and it doesn't offer that as a valid version)...?

 

I've done all the workarounds I know and have found on various forums: restarted my computer and photoshop, uninstalled and reinstalled the current driver, even installed a previous driver, updated Photoshop, reset the brush tool, etc. 

 

I am on a deadline and pulling my hair out over this! Anyone have ideas?
