Apple Pencil is not working with photoshop for ipad
Would you mind confirming the iPad and Apple Pencil version you are using? Also, is the application not registering any input using the Apple pencil or are you facing issues using the Apple pencil while using a brush/sketching?
I am using the Apple Pencil 2 and the 2018 iPad Pro iOS version 13.1.3. I can use the pencil to choose something in the toolbar a brush etc. but it does not register if I try and use that tool. Apple Pencil is working fine in all other apps. Procreate Pixelmator etc. As suggested I deleted the app and re-downloaded that has not solved the issue.
I am having the same issue, I'm using the Apple Pencil 2 and the 2018 iPad Pro iOS version.
I can use the pencil to choose something in the toolbar like a brush etc. I can also use the Apple Pencil with the lasso tool to select things, but it does not register if I try and use the brush, nothing happens, I can touch the screen with my finger And apply the brush tool but it just won't respond to the Apple Pencil.
In my case, the same issue rises up when I am using Photoshop for iMac with an iPad Pro 2020 via screen sharing (Sidecar). The computer mouse works well with photoshop brush, but the apple pencil 2 is useful just for selecting tools. It doesn't extend to the pixel size of the selected brush.
Bluetooth on? Pencil is paired and works with other apps? If so, try deleting PS for iPad and re-downloading.
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)
I am encountering the second issue you describe above where in order to get a strroke to show up, I have to press down with a LOT of pressure (It feels like I am going to break my iPad/apple pencil!)...do you know if this issue has been resolved or will be resolved soon? Thank you.
We are working on pencil sensitivity and hope to have the changes available soon.
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.
Per your request, I've screen capped a demo for you. Please help!
BETTER VIDEO: Here's a demo of the bug with Touch indicator turned on.
Can you try an uninstall and reinstall of the application. That should also get you the brushes back that are missing in the brush preset list.
This may not affect most of the users here, but my iPad pencil stopped working and I was trying to find out why online. I did a simple restart of the app and it worked again.
This is what worked for me. Restarted the app and the brush started working again! /
