Hi riceart,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Since it works in other programs as you mention, this is most likely a problem/setting within blender itself. I did a quick google search and found several posts where people have pressure sensitivity not working in Blender. I'd recommend checking blenders help doc. for possible solutions.

 

Regards

Hello Voithos.

Looks like the issue is that blender 2.79 supports Wintab api, and for some reason Lenovo Flex 5 14 supports Windows Ink api (only?). Is there a workaround for Lenovo Flex 5 14 to work with Wintab?

Regards.

Hi.

This is the issue of AES digitizer device driver, I think. Therefore, any programs using Win-tab mode can encounter. For example, Krita, CSP.

AES digitizer driver for Lenovo laptops is provided by Wacom and it does not work properly in Win-tab mode.

Cintiq (EMR) digitizer driver is also provided by Wacom and it works properly in Win-tab mode.

Idkw AES digitizer driver does not work properly in Win-tab mode.
