I use Adobe Photoshop CC 2015, a Wacom Intuos 5 tablet and Windows 10. I am unable to put pressure on my pen to get thicker paint lines. I clicked on the menu icon that should let me do that with no luck. I checked Community/Help input. Can you help me. -- Alan Dombrow

Check this page to see if it helps. It was written for Windows 8, but applies to Windows 10 as well.

This reply did not help but I did find a fix of sorts. In Wacom Properties, I could not get my pen to draw a line in the Pen Feels Details dialogue box. I went back a screen and selected the Eraser Tab. Then I went back to Pen Feels Details and my eraser worked. I went back again to Properties and selected the Pen Tab. Then I went to the Pen Feels Details screen and tested my pen. It could draw a line and was sensitive to pressure. Then I went to Photoshop CC 2015 and opened a new document. I selected a brush and, finally, my brush was pen pressure sensitive. I don't think the problem is with my pen because I have two identical pens and they both had the initial problem.

I finally got it to work. Mike Shaw's link helped and I messed around with the grip pen settings in the Wacom Tablet Properties. I clicked on "Customize" and tested pen pressure in the box on the right.

I'm trying to get an old intuos 1 to work with the 6.2 driver on cc 2015. Everything is working in cc 2014, pressure sensitivity and everything. Everything is working in other apps like Sai, ect. Just 2015 is refusing to be pressure sensitive.

Tried the wintab thing, had no effect.

I cannot get shape dynamics to work for any brushes for my intuous tablet, a new Creative Art Medium, in Photoshop CC 2016, in Windows 10. Windows Ink is checked on, I've tried reset tool in the top menu bar, and am running the driver I installed when I got the new tablet.

I found a solution that worked for me

I had trouble finding the old pen and touch settings like in windows 7. These days every settings is hidden in windows 10. But I found out that if you search for flicks in the windows bar you can get back into the old pen and touch settings. That helped for me. there you can disable everything. Dont forget the turn on the ink option in the wacom settings. Than everything will work again.
