When using Refine Edge with a Wacom tablet is there any way to change the brush size (when using the Refine Radius and Erase Refinements tools) other than with pen pressure?
I realise that most tablet users like changing brush size this way but personally I am more comfortable using the keyboard shortcuts.
Am using CS6 trial with mac Lion.
Would appreciate any thoughts, Mark.
sorry foк my english
You can do the next.
Select brush tool, call brush panel (F5), select there "Shape dynamics" point. Do not close Brush Property Panel. Call Refine Edges. Select Refine Eraser then switch to Refine Brush again. In Brush property panel put 100% in line "Minimum diameter". Enjoy.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I have tried that but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work. I can set the minimum diameter to 100% before I open Refine Edge but once I open that then it resets it to 0% and it is then locked. I can still only use pen pressure to increase the brush size.
Thanks for that, the keyboard shortcuts increase/decrease the max brush size in Refine Edge but when you are using a tablet the actual brush size is still dependent on the pen pressure, there seems no way to toggle this behaviour on and off as there is with the normal brush tool.
r-bin, that's weird, when I do the same thing then the minimum diameter resets to 0% so must be a difference between the OS versions.
I really appreciate your help though so thanks, maybe I should just change back to MS!
There doesn't seem to be a way to disable pen pressure for size while the refine edge dialog is open, but on my wacom tablet there is a Pressure Hold function
that can be assigned to one of the buttons on the pen and brush size can be changed using the bracket keys on the keyboard while still holding down the pressure hold.
R_Kelly, thanks for that, works with my tablet as well so seems like an acceptable work-around.
Anyone at Adobe have a comment? Should a fix for this within Refine Edge be put forward as a proposed tweek for the future?
