    The Pen tool

    I have a problem with the basic pen tool. It does not respond to my heavy/light stylus pressure. I cannot achieve thick and thin expressive lines. Pen stroke size is 20. I use a Wacom Intuos 4 with artpen. I use Painter and can achieve thick and thin stokes absolutely fine, so I don't think it's my Wacom settings. I don't know what the answer is, so suggestions welcomed. I am a new user. Other tools, oil brush etc all working well. Love the program. Thanks

    May want to include which OS you're using.
    They should have you sorted shortly.

    This sounds like either a tablet drivers issue, or just a problem with the tool settings.

    First, select the Ink Pen and open the 'Settings' tab. Check and see if 'Pressure' is at 0% or 100%. Try changing it to a different value (if pressure is at 100%, it will not vary in size, but it will vary a lot at 50%).

    If this does not solve it, and you are on Windows, try the options at https://www.artrage.com/faqs/tablet-...es-on-windows/

    If that does not help, or you are on macOS, we will need more details.

    Hi D Akey and HannahRage, Thank you both so much. I use Windows 7 Professional. SOLVED yes. As HannahR - I went to https://www.artrage.com/faqs/tablet-...es-on-windows/ and as suggested changed my input settings, turning Wintab on and other 2 off. That Easy.
    Great support
