    Wacom pro pen 2 problems for photoshop

    belindal5848466

      Ok There's probably an easy fix to this. I use a Wacom Mobilstudiopro and a pro pen 2 for photoshop. It was working fine until this morning. To actually draw in the program I have to hold the second button down on the pen to actually write. If I don't it just moves the paper around. It's really frustrating and I'm sure there's an easy solution. Where in settings can I switch it so I don't have to hold that second button down just to draw?

          Hi

           

          You have two options to fix this try either one

           

          1. Use notepad to create a text file and type in :

           

          # Use WinTab

          UseSystemStylus 0

           

          2. Save the file as PSUserConfig.txt in the following location

          C: > Users > Username > AppData > Roaming > Adobe > Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 > Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 Settings

          3. Go to the Wacom tablet properties and for Photoshop under Mapping  uncheck "Use Windows Ink"

           

          Or

           

          1 Select everything inside the quotes here (don't include the quotes): “reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pen /v LegacyPenInteractionModel /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f”

          2 Copy it with Ctrl + C on the keyboard.

          3 Type Windows Key + X (together), a menu will appear

          4 Then type "A" on the keyboard. That will give you an elevated administrator PowerShell command prompt.

          5 Paste the command you copied into that window with Ctrl + V

          6 Hit "Enter" on the keyboard

          7 Reboot

           

          If you use the first one you may need to enable hidden items
