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:
- Confirm that the pressure is working in the Wacom (or other) control
- Quit Illustrator and the other programs.
- Restart your computer.
- Then relaunch Illustrator and try again.
