OK so I am having some MAJOR problems, so hopefully the graphic designer/ illustrator people can help me.
I’ve been using the Bamboo tablet (CTH-661W) for quite some time now, and it’s been working great. Recently I started using Photoshop Elements 2018, but I ran into a problem of not being able to draw any lines with line weight. I wasn’t sure why this was happening since when I was using an older version of Photoshop, I had no problems drawing thick/thin lines within the same stroke, and clearly the tablet’s pressure function was working.
I posted this problem on the Adobe forum, and one person suggested that I should download this support driver from here:
It worked. After I restarted my laptop, I fired up Photoshop, I scribbled some lines on the screen using the tablet, and boom, I was able to draw lines with line weight.
But right after that, I noticed something was wrong.
I CAN draw the lines with weight, but it seems like something got messed up with the tablet itself after I installed that support driver.
When I move the cursor ( not just Photoshop, but when I’m doing things on a regular screen) it “drags” things around, it changes the size of my screen display, there is a 2~5 second time lag, I see icons flickering when using Photoshop, the cursor constantly freezing, etc. When I try scribbling or drawing lines, the first few strokes will appear on the screen just fine, then a few seconds later, it freezes or suddenly slows down, and the lines don’t appear until seconds later.
When I use the touch pad, I have NO problems. It’s only when I use the pen tab. I usually use the pen tab as a mouse 99% of the time BTW. The moment I switch over to the pen tab, things start to happen. Just a while ago I was trying to do something with Photoshop, and when I tried clicking on the brush tool, again something got “dragged” and the entire image got rotated. I did not do that of course, and I did not use the
free transform or rotating tool.
Any suggestions??? Does this tend to happen?
Would it help if I just uninstall the Bamboo tablet and reinstall it again?? I’m pulling my hair out because I need Photoshop to do my gigs, and it’s took me 30 minutes to finish something that will normally take 15 minutes or so.
