If you like me, use a Wacom tablet on a Windows 8.1 in Photoshop CC 2014, you probably had problems with getting pressure sensitivity working. I know I had for some time.
The reason is that Adobe has changed Photoshop to use Microsofts own system API’s. These API’s make use of ‘Windows Ink’. When you enable ‘Windows Ink’ in your Wacom settings you will have pressure sensitivity in Photoshop CC 2014 – but for some reason the function keys on the pen gets very unresponsive when you have ‘Windows Ink’ enabled.
So here is a way to get the old WinTab from the previous versions of Photoshop back.
Create a txt-file on your desktop and name it ‘PSUserConfig.txt’. This file must contain these lines:
Save it and then copy the file to your Photoshop settings folder – typically ‘C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 Settings\’
Restart your computer
Now you should have pressure sensitivity in Photoshop CC 2014 with ‘Windows Ink’ disabled.
