Lenovo yogabook no pressure on some apps

2016-12-07, 10:38 AM

I recently got a yogabook and i installed several drawing applications 

most of which work with pen pressure. some dont (Krita , photoshop and artrage) is there a driver that i need to install or any steps i can take to have them read pen pressure?

other apps work with it(skethible and medibang)

Pressure sensitivity will only work on the Create pad, not on the touchscreen (they use different technologies).

 

I checked Artrage and pressure sensitivity is there, just as it is with Artrage. I don't have Photoshop but I'd be very surprised if it doesn't work there as well.

 

The only thing I've done, which you may not have, is to install the Wacom Feel driver. I don't know whether this is necessary for pressure sensitivity or not. (Why Lenovo didn't put it there by default or point users to it I cannot explain).

This might give you what you want. The only other thing it's useful for apart from that is it gives an overall sensitivity setting -  I find lowering sensitivity down a notch is good for my handwriting.

 

You can download the driver from the Wacom website. I found it because I noticed Wacom Feel mentioned on the box and did a search for it. (Just Google "Wacom Feel" and I'm sure you'll find it easily.

I had another look at the Wacom website and what I read there suggests the driver should be needed for pressure sensitivity on the Create pad - so I think this should solve the problem.

Maybe this might help with Photoshop?

I guess it could be a similar thing with Gimp but I'm just a dabbler not an artist so I don't know these programs that well.

I installed Gimp myself to try it - and yes it didn't work. It does seem surprising that Photoshop should show this problem as well. I think the integration of the Create pad with Windows Ink is not entirely comfortable. I've noticed that sketchpad doesn't work with the touchscreen and Microsoft's Plumbago app which is nice on the Surface tablet is poor on the Yoga Book - which I find a real shame.

I've been thinking about the prefences snippet for photoshop you used above.

I would imagine this would refer to the touchscreen - since that isn't pressure sensitive Photoshop would assume it's not going to get pressure data and not bother looking for it or processing it.

Your code should refer to the wacom tablet. Photoshop would then see that it is pressure sensitive and look for the data acting on it if it gets it. What code you should use I don't know -  I guess you  might have to find that out from Adobe, Wacom or other Photoshop users.
