pen pressure w/ lenovo thinkpad s1 yoga

2016-03-24, 3:20 AM

I’m currently experiencing issues with inconsistent digitizer pen pressure/sensitivity.
When painting within CS6, the strokes will suddenly and randomly grow thick and bold, despite brush settings for opposite results, and without a change in the pressure I apply to the screen. I am running CS6 on a Lenovo ThinkPad S1 Yoga, with a Windows 10 64-bit OS.

Is this an issue with my Lenovo, Photoshop, Windows 10, the pen, or something else?

What steps can I take to resolve this matter once and for all?

Maybe you can try updating some of the driver related to the Pen.


There is the Wintab Driver for Windows 10. Check if you need to update it.



Other thing that also may help is doing some "trial and error" with other pen related software, link using Inkscape and configuring it with the pen just to try it out.

Any luck with this? I'm having the same problem!

I figured out that I get the 100% pressure whenever I set the pen down on the display and then start to draw. If I set down the pen in motion I get a regular stroke. No idea what it could be.

Was anyone ever able to figure this out? I am having this exact same problem. Ive been doing a bunch of research and figured out that this issue has been seen on a lot of wacom devices. throughout the past 5 years or so, but there seem to be about 5 different fixes.


The one that seems to be the most promising is disabling "Press and Hold for Right Clicking" in the windows Pen and Touch settings


Open start menu

type "Pen and Touch"

Select "Press and Hold" and click "Settings"

Disable the checkbox at the top for "Press and Hold for Right Clicking"

Okay, Apply, all that.


Once Ive done that, photoshop starts to freak out with the current driver and I might get one or two nice lines before I just get dots, and only the first couple input points from the pen. It becomes hard to select any brushes or use the pen on any menus in photoshop as well...


Anyone else getting these issues? I have a strong sense it has to do with the current Wacom driver, but Im looking for more information.
