    Why doesn't all the brush options work with my tablet and pen on Photoshop CC 2018?

    tasd2819551

      Hello,

      I have windows 10, a Wacom Intuos pro tablet and I downloaded Photoshop CC 2018.

       

      The problem I am having is: when I choose a brush, it doesn't always work when I use my tablet and pen. If use my mouse, everything works fine.

       

      For example: If I chose "watercolor wash", I could draw using my mouse but nothing happened when I used my pen and tablet. But if I chose "soft round pressure size", my pen and tablet would work. It is also happening with the brushes I got from the Mega Pack and Watercolor pack.

       

      Hopefully that makes sense...

      Has anyone else had this issue and were able to resolve it?

       

      Thank you!!

          Without seeing your brushes and photoshop brush settings there is not much we can write.

            I have figured out what is going on...

             

            When I used my pen and tablet some of the brushes are really transparent or light so I was unable to see them on my screen (they are darker when I use the mouse). I saw one faintly  when I was testing them out again, so I tilted my laptop screen way back and I can see them now.

             

            Thank you for replying though!
