Until recently I have been able to turn off the pen pressure in Photoshop for all of the brushes (stamp, eraser, brush, etc) to enable greater consistency when working on photos. I am using the latest Mac OS, and the latest drivers for my Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. Whenever I turn the pen pressure off in the shape dynamics option it instantly turns on again when I start to use the brush. Until a few months ago this never happened. Any suggestions as how to restore to normal working would be most welcome - i.e. being able to turn the pen pressure off and it remains off until turned on again ?
Have you tried resetting the preferences?
I have reset the Photoshop preferences and also sync'd, and all seems to be working as it should - will keep an eye on it. Thanks for the advice Chuck & JJ
On Windows the Check Boxes and the Tool Option Bar controls can get out of sync. However, Transfer and Shape dynamics normally work the way Tool Option bar controls are set using the pen. Changing the tool option Bar controls a couple of time seems to get them check boxes and option bar in sync. It maybe a Windows pecular thine Mac may have some other strang thing. See if you check boxes are in sync with your brush too option bar. Here check boxes are off yet pen and preview show they are on like the tool bar options.
I had this same problem on my mac, and resetting the preferences solved it for me as well. Hurrah! I did it via the "reset preferences on quit" button in general prefs.
After endless searching, resetting, re-installing, re-everything I just found your post...
a simple click (top left icon highlighted on your pic) and all sorted.
Can't believe it was that easy!
you sir deserve a medal 🙂
p.s this is on a Mac
Thank you very much!
I'd gone crazy trying to fix it. I didn't think it was that simple!!!
Thank you again!!!!
You have made my day!
Thanks. This worked out without having to reset preferences.
Ive tried everything, including all the suggestions in the comments, and I still have this problem. I don't know what to do anymore!
