Although I'm on a Mac, I have seen similar problems with Wacom pen control of sliders. While I don't know if a setting will cure it, the two ways I address it are:
- Use the Wacom mouse instead. But this isn't great if you don't want to keep switching between the pen and the mouse.
- Use the arrow keys instead, by clicking the pen inside a slider number field and pressing the Up arrow or Down arrow keys, adding the Shift key for larger adjustments.
I use the arrow keys most of the time because I like to adjust precisely in fine increments. You can keep the pen in one hand while pressing the arrow keys with your other hand.
Yes. I'm able to correctly use sliders with mouse, as with pen disabling Windows pen input. And yes, I'm finding the same issue with all the sliders I'm using, I need to check everyone but I think they are all the same.
SaturnV: yes, there are several workarounds, but they are all unnatural, and I expect Adobe should address this issue, that I find is quite common between users.
I have the same exact problem - and right now I need to make a choice: or laggy sliders or pen pressure disabled (with windows ink option unchecked). Any solution to that?
Windows 10 x64
Lightroom CC 2015.3
Wacom Intuos Photo
Wacom Tablet 6.3.15-2 drivers
None till now.
Hope Adobe and Wacom can solve the issue with a LR update or a driver update.
This is driving me nuts! Updated Wacom driver to 6.3.15-3 today and no difference! I can disable Windows Ink but I want my pen pressure to work!
I've seen some other recommended fixes where you disable Flicks and Press and Hold for Right Clicking and then you can enable Windows Ink but this failed to make a difference either.
My tablet turns itself off randomly as well even when actively using it. Mostly in Lightroom for some odd reason. I don't know if the issues are Lightroom or Wacom related but I'm over it!!
I'm going to return this table I think......waste of time!
I too have the exact same problem. I have the medium Wacom stylus pro, having all the same set up as gebazzz.
I can't even use the scrubby sliders in the numeric box either (I can only click on the slider and hope it reaches the setting close to what I want). Has anyone found an answer. Also doesn't work in PS.
Damn it, I just bought this thing and it sucks my mouse is so much more precise when it comes to sliders.
And I thought it was me! Just bought the tablet but having a nightmare of a time in Lightroom controlling the sliders and only modestly more control in Camera Raw within PS. Does anyone know if there is a way to use one of the express keys to disable the pen temporarily? For example, move the slider to 37 and then hit the key so you can lift the pen without causing the slider to go all squirrelly on you.
The problem is bad enough and I use the sliders so frequently that I will probably return it if there is no solution.
I also just purchased a new Intuos Pro M tablet for a new Windows 10 setup and have installed all the latest drivers as of 5/17/2016 and I am experiencing the same issues in Lightroom CC. I do have a slight improvement to slider response when the tablet is plugged in via USB than wireless but is still mostly unusable. My Intuos 3 worked great in Winows 7 with Lightroom CC. Using the mouse works fine with the sliders but slows down my work flow compared to using the pen (when that is working).
Exactly the same problem here.
-Adobe Lightroom (64bit) ver 6.6
-Windows 10 (64bit) Home
-Wacom Intuos Pro
-Wacom drivers version 6.3.16-2
I have both Lightroom 5.7/64bit and Lightroom 6.6 on the same computer and LR5.7 has no problems with slider control at all.

There is a "Precision Mode" on the the push buttons on the pen which allows for finer adjustments. This can be set from Fine to Ultra Fine. There is a learning curve to using this, but after a few trials you should be able to use it for the slider adjustments. Remember to lift the pen off the tablet before releasing the button.
JoeKostoss I don't have such option in my Wacom Intuos Pen & Touch Medium...
But the point here is quite "simple": using a pen on Lightroom interface, there's a kind of threshold on click-and-drag of sliders that acts as "if you are moving the pen withing those *tiny* (I'd say *not-so-tiny*...) number of pixels, it's like you aren't moving at all". That's the source of the lag described in this thread: I'd like someone to find where that value is stored (in Lightroom code? in Wacom drivers? in Windows pen input services? who knows?) and put it to ZERO: I'm moving my pen, you move that slider, no thresholds involved.
I have this issue on LR sliders, as well on Photoshop curve adjustment layer, as well on Photoshop liquify.
Thank you for advice.
However it is a different problem with some kind of thresholds and little delays with sliders in Lightroom 6 Develop module.
That delays does not happen when using mouse instead tablet pen.
User gebazz described problem more accurate.
And I have no problem with sliders moving in my Ligtroom 5 with the same tablet and on the same computer.
I own Wacom Bamboo tablet before Intuos and I did not notice any troubles with sliders moving in Lightroom 6.
I do not know is it because of newer Wacom drivers or because of the latest Lightroom 6 upgrade.
I must say, that after latest Lightroom upgrade (version 6.7) problems get solved.
I did not upgrade Wacom drivers so it was a Lightroom bug.
Now I could work with tablet again :-)
