Flex 5 Pen Pressure Sensitivity Problem

2020-09-15, 8:54 AM

I bought Lenovo Flex 5 in order to use it to draw and take notes but pressure sensitivity isn't working, without pressure sensitivity I can't work on drawings.

 

I tried different drawing softwares, I use Krita and it doesn't work. Only one working so far is Autodesk Sketchbook. I installed Active Pen, I saw on internet that some softwares require wintab driver but seems like my device doesn't support wintab drivers? 

 

What is exactly the issue? Why Autodesk Sketchbook works and Krita doesn't? I appreciate the help. 

 

(I think I posted this on a completely unrelated topic, but I don't know how to use this platform and I don't know how to delete the post) 

Solved! See the solution

Hi Hesna,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

I do not see why the Wintab driver is not compatible with your device as Wintab is fairly generic software interface for Windows computers that have pen tablets connected. It is mostly used by graphics applications.

The Flex 5 falling under all those categories. It might be that Autodesk does not require Wintab but Krita does. so I'd suggest you try to download and install the Wintab driver

You might also need the Lenovo Pen Settings for the device, which you can get for free through the Microsoft Store :  Lenovo Pen Settings 

 

Also have a look at the Pen Config Instructions 

 

Regards

 

Voithos

Thank you! Even though this link didn't work, I installed a different wintab driver and I managed to make Krita work. I will link the driver I installed here in case somebody else have the same problem.
