I have a setup where I have a wireless mouse and a Genius MousePen 8x6 Tablet both plugged into the computer at the same time (Windows 7). I'm wondering if Photoshop recognizes one device as primary (the mouse) and ignores pressure input from the 'secondary' device (the tablet), because I'm not currently getting pressure input from a tablet that I have gotten pressure from many times before. I'm using Photoshop CS2 in this specific instance, but I'd imagine the question would apply to newer versions as well. So, any ideas?
When you use the tablet, Photoshop should recognize pressure from the tablet.
When you use the mouse, it'll show up as 100% pressure.
Most of the time when you have problems with those knockoff tablets, it's due to poorly written drivers.
