    Bamboo Ink not working correctly with Photoshop CC??? Help Please!


      I recently got the Lenovo Yoga 720, hybrid laptop/touch screen tablet, with the Bamboo Ink touch pen to match. Since I bought it, I have had NO problems with it. It's been absolutely amazing. I went to use my stylus again a few days ago, and ever since, I haven't been able to draw anything correctly. Whenever I open Photoshop and try to use my Bamboo Ink on it, it just scrolls the picture up and down. I noticed it will draw horizontal lines, but it won't draw vertically. I tried erasing, and using other tools, same thing. It just scrolls the picture around. I am not sure how to fix this... please is there someone who could help me fix this problem? or has dealt with the same thing, and found a way to fix it??

          The latest Microsoft Windows update (KB4093112)  has caused an issue with tablets and Photoshop.


          You can either - undo the update




          Do the following  :

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

          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  tablet properties and uncheck "Use Windows Ink"


          4. Restart Photoshop


          That is it - all should now work well (you need to do all the above steps to retain pen pressure)




          There is a third option if the above does not work on your tablet. Microsoft made this change intentionally and they have issued a way round it with registry change (see link below). However for  Photoshop and most tablets the PSUserConfig method works.
