Could you please let me know the operating system you are working on , Windows or MAC ?
Also did you try to use the Wacom in Lightroom 6 before updating it to Lightroom 6.3 ?
Are you able to work with Wacom in Lightroom 5 ?
thank you for your fast answer. Sorry I forgot to mention the operating system.
I am running Windows 8.1 with all updates installed, and YES pressure sensitivity is working fine in Lightroom 5 (also the latest version, 5.7 or so?).
Thank you for any help!
ps: and, yes I did try in LR6 before upgrading. It did not work, that was the main reason that I was looking for updates for Lightroom in the first place.
I also use the old Intuos3. Normally I use it on a Mac, but I switched it over to Windows to test this. On both OS's the pressure sensitivity worked fine in Lightroom 6.3. Of course, the difference here is that I'm on Windows 10, so I don't know how much of a factor this is going to be. So there must be some other factor that we are missing.
The first thing I would suggest is a new Windows user account. This will return all settings to default (which is what I used, I just installed Windows 10 and this was the first time I installed the Wacom drivers).
Hi Brett, thank you for your answer!
I just created a new local windows user account, startet LR6 with it and it worked - pressure sensitivity was there!
But it did not last long. Since I find these circles that windows creates around the cursor when clicking really annoying, I went to the wacom settings and switched off "use windows ink" and turned on "force proportions". The pressure sensitivity was gone with the wind, and changing just these two settings back didn't bring it back.
It would be uncomfortable to have to switch to a different user account for working in Lightroom anyway, but this was the closest I got to pressure sensitivity until now.
Remember, it is still working fine in LR5 which is also installed in the same standard user account.
Does this make any sense? Is there any chance that I can bring it back in LR6.3 in my standard user account???
Thanks for any help!!!
That makes complete sense. Photoshop and Lightroom use Windows Ink for controlling pressure sensitivity. Older versions used the older technology WinTab. There is a way to force Photoshop to use WinTab through a configuration file change: Enable Optional Extensions | Photoshop CC. But I don't know if the same can be done with Lightroom. I'll look into it.
today I did the upgrade from Windows 8.1 to 10 to see if that would help, but regarding the lightroom behaviour nothing has changed at all. In LR5.7 the sensitivity is still working fine, and in the new LR6.3 it's not working at all....
Right, the issue of why it is working for me and not for you is that I still have Windows Ink enabled. By disabling it, you are removing the instruction set that Lightroom uses for pressure sensitivity. I'm checking with the engineering team to see if there is a way to manually switch Lightroom to use the WinTab instruction set that is used when Windows Ink is disabled.
thank you so much for checking this (sounds complicated...).
it seems weird to me that changing back the windows ink setting in wacom driver does not bring back the sensitivity that worked when I tried it with a fresh user account....
anyway, I have also found an even more problematic issue that I got from Lightroom 6.... My Eizo monitor software does not work anymore, which is quite a catastrophe....
I have posted that in another thread already, I hope someone knows what to do about that...
same problem with a HUION Tablet (no pressure sensitivity with LR 6.8 / Win 10, working fine with LR 5.7 / Win7). Did you find "a way to manually switch Lightroom to use the WinTab instruction set that is used when Windows Ink is disabled" (for me it is not an option to create a new Windows User Account, just for risking to loose pressure sensitivity if I change settings once)
