It's a Windows Ink issue. Workaround: uncheck "Use Windows Ink" in the mapping section of the Wacom tablet properties
Seems this is still not fixed
Intuos tablet used to work fine with LR5 and Win7 on my old PC.
New PC: Core i7, 16GB RAM, GTX-1060, Win10 Home, LR6.7, Wacom driver is 6.3.20-7.
Result: endless 'fun' trying to get correct operation of the pen in LR.
Use Windows Ink is disabled in Wacom Tablet Properties
Disabled Windows Ink Workspace by adding a registry key
Win10 Settings / Devices / Pen & Windows Ink: everything to do with the pen is switched off
Control panel / Pen & Touch / Pen options / Press and hold for right click is disabled
Control panel / Pen & Touch / Pen options / Flicks all disabled
Pen will click and drag consistently in other programs
But in LR...
- You can tap the pen just to the left or right of the slider handle and the slider moves to the point of touch
- Grabbing the slider handle by pen touch and trying to move the slider is close to hopeless
- About 1 time in 50 you can touch the pen on the slider and slide it.
- The rest of the time: you can see the pen touch is registered on the slider button. it flickers, but when you try to drag the slider nothing happens.
Looks like this is a long standing issue.
Does anyone have any ideas as I think I've tried everything.
Fixed it! Or at least on my system
Common advice was to uncheck 'Use Windows Ink' in the mapping tab of the Wacom control panel. See aerielmartini above.
I'd done that, but didn't realise there was a separate 'Use Windows Ink' control for each of the registered applications.
I have 'All other', 'Lightroom' and 'Photoshop Elements' as registered applications and I'd only disabled Windows Ink in 'All Other'.
Once I'd unchecked 'Use Windows Ink' in the Lightroom mapping settings tab the sliders are smooth as a very smooth thing!
I also unchecked 'Use Windows Ink' in the Photoshop Elements mapping setting tab. Everything is fine there too.
In summary: the fix was:-
Disable Windows Ink individually in the Mapping Tab for every registered application.
Thank you so much!!! I was going to give up on the tablet. So glad I searched today!!! Good grief! It was so frustrating. I removed all the check marks for "Use Windows Ink" and it works great. Giving stupid Wacom another chance!
