Pressure Sensitivity for Wacom Digitizer W700

2009-07-14, 23:37 PM

Hello, I've purchased a W700 and am having issues with the pressure sensitivity on the in-unit Wacom Digitizer. I have tried 2 applications (Painter and Photoshop) and I am not seeing any pressure sensitivity. I also have connected a Cintiq to the laptop and was not getting PS on that either, makes me suspicious of the default Wacom Driver on the W700.

 

Also, Wacom software doesn't seem to detect the onboard W700 Wacom Digitizer.

 

Any comments or experiences appreciated. Thanks

This is something I'll look into when I receive my W700, as it's something I'll be using a lot. I'll see if I can find out more... hang in there.

I recently bought a Cintiq 12W for my Lenovo W700. The drivers that were installed from the CD fixed the problem. Now even the small onboard wacom works with pressure sensitivity. In other words-I got lucky.

 

I can't say my experience with Lenovo customer support has been as lucky. I opened a ticket with them and the tech never called me back. Also, no one seemed to have a clue what a "Wacom Digitizer" was. I found very little if any technical information on their website concerning the factory installed Wacom tablet. 

 

I had forgotten about this thread, since no one from Lenovo responded to me.

 

I will say my W700 has been an awesome machine despite some of the hassles.

I used the Lenovo driver for the digitizer, and it works great. Pressure sensor is working just fine:

If you are already using this driver, I wouldn't know how to help, sorry.

What about a Watcom driver for Win 7 32bit?  Lenovo has a driver for Win 7 64 bit, but when will Lenovo release a 32 bit version?!?!
