I have recently installed the latest version of Photoshop on a brand new desktop (no previous versions installed) and downloaded the latest driver from Wacom for my Intuos Pro.
I was totally surprised to then find that when selecting the "Pen Pressure" option in the brush settings the dreaded warning triangle appears, denoting "control by pen pressure requires the use of a pressure sensitive tablet". The corresponding wacom driver version listed in the Device Manager is 184.108.40.206(31 Aug 2020) however, strangely from another driver website https://www.drvhub.net/devices/input-devices/wacom/tablet-14 there is a later driver Version:220.127.116.11(06 Nov 2020). Inundated by the number of posts both past and present that appear on this forum on this particular subject it becomes an impossible task to filter out what what might actually assist me, rather than to further add to my confusion.
A clear solution to the problem would be much appreciated
IMO WinTab interface performs better with Photoshop than INK. You can configure your machine to use one or the other supported interfaces. With Wintab support there is a minor Problem. Tools like the lasso tool will not Switch to the hand Tool when you press and hold the space bar. It that is a deal breaker you can configure to use Windows INK interface, However, brushes tools will not perform as well as they do with WinTab support and you will also get annoying feedback icons on screen when modify keys are pressed.
After following your setup instructions for WinTab the pen pressure warning has now dissapeared and after switching brush and re-selecting again the "tip preview" now illustrates the brush tip correctly and ultimately "performs" as expected.
