Photoshop 2020 not registering every touch of wacom pen

Hi,

 

I've recently started having a problem where photoshop seems not to recognise the occasional brush stroke. It's probably about 1 in 10 strokes that it ignores, and seems to be more of a problem doing more detailed strokes. It's incredibly frustrating as it takes me out of the flow when painting.

I believe the problem must have started with one of Photoshop's automatic updates.

 

The tablet is a wacom Intuos pro (around 2014/15) and I am running PS 2020.

The tablet works as normal on other softwares, and I have updated and reinstalled the drivers to no avail.

 

I have deleted all my preferences, tried reinstalling Photoshop + done a variety of other methods of fixing pressure/ tablet issues, again, all to no avail.

 

I'm on Windows 10.

 

I'm currently downloading an old version of PS, which hopefully will temporarily solve the issue, but I'd really like to be using the latest version.

 

Many thanks in advance,

 

Chester

I'm having exactly the same issue, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled photoshop as well as updated my Wacom drivers. It's starting to seriously impede my ability to work, as everything takes that bit longer.
I'm probably missing one in every 4 brush strokes.

I'm also having the same problem, but in my case, none of my strokes are being recognized.   I can see the pen tip indicator move about on my screen as I maneuver it, but the strokes are not being applied.   I actually thought I had missed something in carrying out a specific technique.

I solved this problem thanks to this video in the end -

Windows ink clashes terribly with photoshop and wacom. It's a mystery why
this hasn't been properly resolved but hopeful this helps!
