Photoshop elements 2021 crashes when trying to use my XP-Pen artist 13.3 pro drawing pad. I have read that this is happening to other people after instaling the lastest version of PS. And so I have been trying to uninstall this latest update. Following these instructons - https://support.avenza.com/hc/en-us/articles/360035256431-How-to-install-previous-versions-of-Illust... However my creative cloud desktop doesnt acknowlage that I even have elements downloaded on my computer, even though I am loggind into my account. I have tried to find a number or person to contact but the adobe website is sending me in circles. Any ideas to help my XP-Pen work with photoshop elements would be of great help.

The Creative Desktop Client doesn't affected This client is only for CC apps if you have a subscription.
Photoshop Elements is a perpetual license and isn't included in the CC client.
In the first step you should try to disable the Windows Ink option.
Please give us more informations including the following :
Adobe product and version number
Operating system and version number

Hi. Sorry to jump on this thread but I am having a identical issues with a different tablet.
I am using Photoshop Elements 2021 and a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet. Both drivers have been checked and updated. I built the PC in the last few months to a decent spec. The problem only started after PSE updated this morning.
The issue presents as a full program crash whenever using the pen tool (when Windows Ink is enabled). If Windows Ink is disabled I am able to use the pen within PSE though without the pressure sensitivity which is obviously not great. I've submitted multiple crash reports to Adobe today.
Thanks in advance.
Same problem since the last update.
I just did the update tonight and my pe2021 worked for the last 2-3 months no problem.i had to turn off windows ink to get my adobe to work whith out crashing while using my wacom inous pro s tablet . now that i got that working i can not use my eraser on my pen in adobe but it works in other programs no problem, is there any work around for this is or is waiting for another update to fix these bugs the only option? Everything is up to date adobe ,windows 10, and drivers for wacom tablet.
Exact same issue for me. Windows 10, XP-PEN G640. Pen works fine in Lightroom and regular Photoshop
I'm having the same problem with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2021, using a Wacom One 13 tablet on a Windows 10 laptop. If I have Windows Ink unchecked, the brush tool works in Photoshop but without pressure adjustments. If I check the box and tap even once into Photoshop, the program crashes.

Apologies for the inconvenience. We are working on this fix and will be pushing it soon to resolve this for you.
Thank you for the patience.
I have tried 3 different tablets on two different PCs, the result is always the same;
PSE crashes as soon as the pen touches the tablet. These are the tested tablets:
HUION WH1409 Giano WH1409-8192
Adobe support is trying to get rid of me with lots of pretexts such as "we only support WACOM tablets". This is incredible. When will the (like-to-be-) users will get a chance to use this program?
The Photoshop Elements Update 2021.2 has been released today which will fix the issue with Tablet Pen.
Here are the release notes: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop-elements/release-note/update.html
Please let us know if you still face any issue.
I had this problem back in February/ March. I got the update and everything worked. But the same problem is back. Using the pen and tried to print. I tried restarting everything but nothing works.
I'm using a new laptop with Windows 10: Lenovo Yoga with a factory pen. I also use an old Epson all in one scanner with Windows Scan to import hand drawn items as part of my process.
