I have the pen pressure problem on Photoshop CC. When I start photoshop and make new file the pen pressure is working fine. But when I open any *.psd file, pen pressure just stops working in photoshop. Wacom diagnostic tool shows that pressure is working in this moment. I reinstalled driver and removed settings, but nothing changed. Also I noticed, that it's happening only when I open psd file, when I open jpeg or tiff file all works fine.

P.S. I use Wacom Bamboo CTL-460,Photoshop CC 64 bit with all updates, Windows 8.1 with latest updates, Wacom tablet driver version 5.3.3-2.

Contact Wacom and work with them to determine why your tablet driver is losing the connection.

What plugin?
And yes, the problem is usually a driver - so that's the first place to start.

Long time ago I have installed 'Font explorer pro', to managing my fonts, this program installing plugin to every Adobe programs, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash. But when I removed font explorer from my pc, plugin don't remove automaticly, and some way create my problem. I remove all font explorer files from system folders, and pen pressure start working perfectly

OK, that's a new one. Guess the plugin was interfering with tablet events, or corrupting memory somehow.
