    Problems with the stylus in Photoshop

    ктое22255929 Level 1

      Hello!

      I'm bad at typing in English, I hope you understand me.

       

       

      I have a graphic tablet bamboo cth-470

      Also, there is a stylus with an stylus eraser

      I want to draw with the back of the stylus

      But the photoshop can only erase, but not draw

      I want to draw with the back of the stylus eraser , help!

       

      How to disable the definition of stylus eraser?

      Maybe in the registry, where do have it?

       

      Wakom refused to support, saying that you need to contact Adobe with this question

       

       

      You are my last hope!

          I have a Wacom Intuos Pro and Wacom defaults the Eraser to Photoshop's Eraser in Photoshop.  You can not set the eraser to any other tool in Photoshop.  You can set it to click,Keystroke,  and an Application.  It a Wacom thing not a Photoshop thing.

           

          Here is Wacom Intuos Pro Preferences UI for the Pen eraser settings.  Clearly the only Photoshop tool Wacom offers is the eraser tool.

            My setup menu is completely different from yours

            I do not understand you well, I will clarify ..

             

            Can you use eraser as a pen in Photoshop?

            ------------------------------

            I also found the file Recover.tabletprefs

            As I understood, the values of these or those parameters are inside.

            I opened it with a notepad and found it ..42435.jpeg

             

            Is there something in those lines that is responsible for Eraser?

             

            My pen tip is broken.

            in my country buying a new pen is very expensive.

            In SAI, you can draw with the back of the stylus

            In Photoshop only clear

              <ButtonFunction type="integer">14</ButtonFunction>

               

              Number 14 in the line of code - as I understand it, Left click

               

              If you set the number 40, the following will happen:

              42435.jpeg

               

              Perhaps this changes the act when you press the back of the pen

               

              number 40 - crawls out what that menu

               

              but the photoshop still perceives the back side of the pen as an erase, the tool erases the eraser

                it would be great

                If you would throw me Backup.tabletprefs

                Next, change the Eraser parameter

                and again create a backup copy of Backup.tabletprefs and again throw off

                 

                It will be easier for me to find the parameter

                  The Bamboo is a lower wacom model that the intuos.  I woul not think it would have a feature the Intuos does not have.  The only Photoshop tool the pen eraser can be set to is the eraser tool.  Photoshop's eraser tool is a brush type tool and its tip can be changed using Photoshop tool option bar ui when the erase tool is active.

                    I choose a brush, but draws an eraser tool42435.jpeg

                     

                    The problem is still on the side of Photoshop, because it prohibits the use of any other tool

                     

                     

                    In "PAINT TOOL SAI" there are no such problems.

                    I can choose any draw tool for them

                    42435.jpeg

                     

                    Why does not Photoshop give me a choice?

                    It is Photoshop that reacts to the eraser and does not allow you to select another tool

                     

                     

                    Can I solve my problem?

                      How do you choose a brush the bamboo pen is a wacom device supported with wacom device driver and the only Photoshop tool the driver supports for the pen eraser is Photoshop Eraser tool. I tried setting the Wacom Intuos Pen eraser to Click like the pen tip is set by default.  What even tool I select in Photoshop the pen tip click acts like a mouse left click and hold and mouse stroke.  However no matter what tool I select in Photoshop UI the eraser click setting like a mouse left click hold and stroke with the eraser tool. No matter what Photoshop  Tool Bar and Tool Option Bar shows is the current Photoshop tool.  The Wacom erases set to click is still acting like the Photoshop Eraser. Photoshop is not performing like the current tool showned in Photoshop's UI it performing like the eraser tool is active.  Is the problem in Photoshop or is the problem in Wacom's pen driver.

                        I really do not understand what's written here

                         

                        But here that is interesting

                        If a Bamboo driver error occurs, then the Photoshop perceives the eraser as a normal mouse and fine-tunes the tools

                         

                        Therefore, it is worthwhile to understand that Photoshop checks the eraser and, based on this, selects the tool (as it thinks) the eraser tool

                         

                        I checked MediBang Paint Pro

                        This also determines the presence of the eraser, BUT !!!

                        This allows me to choose any other tool, unlike Photoshop

                         

                        If only Adobe would pay attention to this and fix such a problem, it would be very wonderful!

                         

                        But as I understand, if there is no support from Adobe, then no one can help me.

                         

                        I need to solve the problem, and not discuss it :(

                          I also do not fully understand what you write either.  I feel this is because neither of us knows how Photoshop and Wacom software communicate with each other.  So if there is a problem it may be on one or both sides of this communication.

                           

                          I wrote I set the Wacom pen eraser to Click just like the Pen point tip.  When I select any tool in Photoshop Tool Palette  Photoshop Highlights that tool Icon in the tool palette bar and Photoshop's Tool option bar changes to the tools icon and the options for the tool.  However when I use the Wacom Pen eraser end Photoshop performs like the erase tool is active even though Photoshop UI Tool Palette bar and Tool Option bars shows that a different tool is Photoshop current tool.  If the erase tool is operating the eraser tool should be highlighted in the tool palette bar and the eraser tool icon and eraser options should be in the tool option bar.  This is not what I see. Clearly something is wrong here.   There is a Problem here is it a single problem in Adobe's or Wacom's code or more then a single problem with the way they communicate.   I feel since you want this problem fixed you should report the problem to both Wacom and Adobe.  This is not the proper place to report problem to Adobe. This is a user forum.

                           

                          To report a problem to Adobe use the problem area on Adobe's feedback site.  Use this link then select problem. First search for your problem and if not found to be a reported problem report your problem. Photoshop Family Customer Community

                            Tell me please..
                            Maybe it will seem obtrusive..

                            But...

                            Can I ask you to make this application?

                             

                            Can you report the problem to Adobe?

                             

                            ------

                             

                            I do not know much English and most likely I will not be able to explain the problem through Google translate

                            You will do it better than me.

                             

                            Sorry if this is too intrusive.

                             

                             

                            It would be nice if in Photoshop there was a function responsible for the tip of the pen.

                             

                             

                            P.S

                            I understood the meaning of your proposal.

                            Thanks to Google)

                              Simply put it is not a problem.  You want a new finger painting feature added to Photoshop.  You can request such a feature on Adobe's feedback site Photoshop Family Customer Community . However I do not believe Adobe will think that, that would be worthwhile feature to add.
