Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Pen pressure in Photoshop 21.2.8 on your Mac. Would you mind telling us the exact macOS version you're working on? Which drawing tablet are you using? Did you start experiencing this issue after the latest Photoshop update?

 

If you're using a Wacom tablet, you can check out: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/tablet-support-faq-photoshop.html

 

You can also check if Photoshop & the tablet drivers are added to the Accessibility list for macOS by following the steps suggested below:

1. Go to the System Preferences for your Mac, then Security and Privacy, then select the Privacy tab.

2. Then select Accessibility from the list to the left & check if Photoshop & the tablet drivers are added to the list with a check mark in front of them.

3. If not, please add them by unlocking the window first using the lock at the bottom left, then clicking the + icon & navigating to the Applications folder.

4. Once done, restart the Mac & check if it helps.

 

If the issue persists, you can try to reset the preferences of Photoshop manually using the steps mentioned here: https://adobe.ly/2Qzc0K3

Please backup your settings prior to resetting the preferences. You can check: https://adobe.ly/2vNz6FG

 

Let us know if it helps!

Regards,

Nikunj
