Pen Pressure in PSE 2018

Not sure if this is the exact right place but anyway, this is my last shot... I can't get pen pressure in Elements 2018. I don't think it's because it's a trial as I've also got PSE11 trial and the pen pressure works beautifully. Does pen pressure just not exist anymore in PSE? Do I need to buy the full version for it to work?

Hi ,

There is full support of pen support in PSE 2018. Might be it is the problem of driver on your side. Just re-install your drivers .

This was one of the first things I thought of. I updated, then backdated, then updated again and it's still not working.

I don't know how relevant this is in your case, but I have also a problem with a Wacom Pen and PSE 13 and 2018.
In my case( see here the description), eacht time I touch the pen on the pad a white circle appears, making it almost impossible to work with the pen in PSE. I use the latest pen drivers from Wacom and have had a Wacom support engineer look at the problem. It's not the Wacom driver that is causing my problem as the pen and its driver work perfectly in Photoshop CS, version 8 and other image editing programs.
I believe something is not working well in PSE with pen utilities.......

Well, it's something like that. I don't have the white circle, though. In my case the program responds to my pen in PSE 2018 and I can still draw with it, but there's no pressure. In PSE11 and every other program I have, pen pressure is still working.

Maybe my tablet is just too old? I have a 4ish year old Intuous Pen and Touch tablet...But you have an Intuous Photo, which is one of the newer ones, I think, and we're both having problems, so? Who knows...

As long as no Adobe support engineer does address our problems we’ll never know...
