Lightroom Classic CC (7.0.1): Extreme slider lag using Wacom tablet

I always have problem with new program updates. This time the combination of the Widows Creators Update and Lightroom Classic CC (V7.0.1) has rendered my Wacom tablet next useless. The problem is that when I drag the sliders, the cursor moves, the sliders don't move at all. Then all the sudden, maybe one or two seconds, the slider quickly jumps to where my pen stylus is at. Of course, it's way to extreme, and I have to drag the slider back the other way. Basically, it's left me going back to using my mouse, and that's something I am no longer used to doing.

I've had all sorts of fun with Wacom today, trying delete and then reinstall the pen drivers, and nothing works any better. They even suggested that I create a fresh user account to install the drivers on a "clean slate" so to speak. But, that didn't work.

I haven't tried using Adobe Camera Raw within Photoshop yet, maybe that will work. But, this is not the direction I want things to go. I've already seen performance with Lightroom CC Classic start to lag, not sure why, as it was faster when I first updated the app. Now, the problem with the sliders.

One thing I have to do is disable windows ink in the wacom settings, that usually removes the lag there and in photoshop. There is a checkbox for it in the tablet properties under the Mapping tab. In the same settings also change to "tip double click distance" of OFF for both lightroom and photoshop that is also helpful with the brushes. Hopefully that'll help you as well.

Thanks, I forgot to check that after all the re-installs. That seems to have done the trick!

Yes, but now you lose pressure sensitivity no?
