Pen not pressure sensitive any more?

  Diemmess 20:12 27 Jan 2007

Was using a very old Pen Partner and Corel Photopaint v 12 everything the rudimentary pressure "nib" worked fine. (Win 2000 SP4)

I treated myself to a fancy version of Wacom (Intuos 3). As recommended, uninstalled the old Pen Partner drivers first.

Installed the new drivers and Intuos. Updated the drivers from Wacom site.

Everything working as it should except that no way can I make any of the painting tools behave as pressure sensitive.

Have tested the Wacom Properties on Device Manager and also worked through the short routine in Photopaint to apply pressure characteristics to a Paint tool.
Both ways using the app's own Help - appeared to show it working.

Back in Photopaint again, there is still the sort of effect I would expect from a standard mouse.
Anyone ideas please?

There's something simple I'm missing.....
Currently in one of those mental loops where I go round and round without seeing a tick box perhaps, or some "moment of truth."

A frustrating weekend but at last.

Talked to Paulo (Wacom)
He said find and delete tablet.dat in System32
The reason is that Windows has its own generic tablet data and by deleting this file is forced to look for better in the tablet's own drivers on rebooting.

I did as I was told and ..... no difference!!
There is a vast choice of tools in Corel Photopaint tools and this time I tried "Quick Doodler" - Bingo!

Silly to have spent so long missing the vital thing.

The irony is I don't need this for most of what I do in Photopaint, but my youngest grandaughter will be thrilled when next she comes to play.

Not seen your post until now but, seems an odd problem. Haven't ever experienced it on our tablets.
