Author Topic: Pressure sensitivity doesn't work in 2019.3  (Read 1018 times)

Pressure sensitivity doesn't work for me in 2019.3. Activating 'Pen Pressure' for 'Size' or 'Flow' in the brush settings does nothing. It doesn't work for the older Painter brushes, and it doesn't work for the new PSD brushes.

No such problems in other applications.

Intuos4 + newest wacom driver, Windows 10.

Any ideas?

Same here. Just update to the 2019.3 and the pressure stopped working.

Win10 - Intuos Pro L - Wacom Driver 6.3.29-6


Same issue.
Veikk A30. Pressure sensitivity doesn’t work in the latest update.

Looks like they have switched to "Windows Ink" for their pen driver in this version. Re-Enabling this from Wacom preferences gets pressure sensitivity working again... however.....

Windows Ink creates a bunch of annoying visuals that seem impossible to disable without reverting back to Wintab via Wacom preferences.

Annoyances include: a white circle appearing on right click, modifier key popup notifications under the cursor ALT+SHIFT etc, and odd behavior in some other creative apps. This are all Windows specific issues which we are kinda stuck with unless Microsoft does something. ASFAIK....

The workaround for this previously had been to choose "Disable Windows Ink" in the Wacom preferences. Then in photoshop atleast, add a PSUserconfig.txt to the photoshop user profile to get pressure sensitivity back up and running.

For Substance Painter, is it:

a) possible to also disable "Windows Ink" and fallback to "Wintab" via some kind of option or text file like in photoshop?

or

b) work with Microsoft to provide a nicer experience for artists using Windows Ink?

Thanks, activating Windows Ink now brings back pressure sensitivity in Painter. Along with all the annoying stuff in Windows and other applications that made me deactivate Windows Ink in the first place.

What a bad idea to make this a requirement.

Alright then, reverting to substance 2019.2 it is. cause windows ink is trash and only breaks things. you cant even drag a slider without having to move the pen 40+ pixels to get it to start sending mouse drag events.

a) possible to also disable "Windows Ink" and fallback to "Wintab" via some kind of option or text file like in photoshop?

I just want to second/third/repeat this, please please make substance painter's pressure sensitivity work without windows ink enabled. Not being able to use pressure sensitivity reliably in painter is incredibly frustrating considering how great the tool is in nearly every other way.

You guys are kidding, this is crazy, we pay for this software and you guys can't even test it properly? It was all good, but you guys had to f it up in something so simple ! Windows Ink is TRASH, simple as that, if you've ever used your tablet for something more than doodling you should know for a fact it is terrible. You can't remove or fix all the things previous users mentioned above, it is disgusting to deal with this if you are working 10h+ texturing stuff, which you guys probably don't, otherwise you would see this is total bullcrap, goodbye ! I'm going to 3Dcoat.

As mentioned previously, we are looking into fixing in every way possible any issues related to Windows Ink support. While we do a lot of testing internally (especially with our last release) we can't cover every tablet models currently existing, there are simply too many. Saying everything was working fine before is also not true: a lot of users had technical issues in the past.

I'm locking this thread to avoid information behind spread in too many places and hard to follow for other readers. You can however use this thread to report your issues: https://forum.substance3d.com/index.php/topic,32232.0.html
