I have the newest iPad Pro and pencil, i haven’t noticed any issues using sketch or fresco with my pencil pairing, but i have had a ton of issues in photoshop. It seems to react to the pencil Immediately after docking but only for 30 secs or so, at which time it will not recognize my pencil. This is of course a huge issue while working in the app.
I have the same setup (newest iPad Pro and Pencil) and I'm not seeing this. Are you sure the pencil tip is screwed on tightly? A loose tip can lead to all kinds of intermittent issues.
I'm having a similar issue, it is February 2020, my Apple Pencil will work with some of the tools in photo shop iPad for example the selection tool, I can also select different things like the brush tool with the pencil but when I go to draw nothing happens, then if I put the pencil down and touch the screen with my finger it draws.
If you are running into issues with Brush use with the pencil, is the issue with all brushes or only some of the preset brushes? If only with certain brushes does pressing harder with the pencil get marks made? We have had reports from a few users that pencil sensitivity is not soft enough. We are hoping to address this in a future release. Can folks running into problem go to preferences, enable Touch indicator in the Input section and make a screen recording of the issue you are seeing. (if unsure how to do a screen recording see https://support.apple.com/guide/ipad/take-a-screenshot-or-screen-recording-ipad08a40f3b/ipados)
Hi M Shaw,
Looks like this was a year ago, but I'm still having this problem. iPad Mini + Apple pencil 1st gen. The pencil is charged. Pencil can select tools, toggle menus, and even use selection tool. Can select brushes and eraser, but can't actually use them.
I've screen capped a demo for you. Please help!
