Q: I'm using a pressure brush with a graphics tablet while following along with this course. But when the author clicks and holds in the "Brushes and blobs" movie, he gets an expanding oval, where I get nothing or just a sharp-edged line. My brush doesn't seem to be responding to pressure. What should I do?

A: When you first install a Wacom (or other brand of) tablet, the pressure
options may not at first take hold.

After installing the tablet, try this:

  1. Confirm that the pressure is working in the Wacom (or other) control
  2. panel.
  3. Quit Illustrator and the other programs.
  4. Restart your computer.
  5. Then relaunch Illustrator and try again.
