    Red face Intuos 3 Problem - Pressure Recognized even with Pen Lifted off!

    Basically, after drawing a line and lift the pen off the surface, (so that it's still in tracking height) it will continue to recognize the lowest amount of pressure and continue drawing the line.

    This is getting rather frustrating and I am getting quite desperate for a solution. Anyone out there who knows what the problem might be?

    Is this specific to one program or is it doing it all the time? Sometimes I noticed an odd keyboard error where it gets "sticky" in Photoshop.

    The other thing is the intuos pen actually doesn't have to physically touch the service to register as pressure. This is because people sometimes place something over the tablet such as paper to draw/trace. It's a small distance but there is one.

    Try that,

    1 if you have your wacom conected to a usb CLOSE to the usb of your mouse change the ports, and put the cable of your wacom in another usb port.

    2 Deconect your mouse, and start to work with your software, check if the pressure work.

    3 Go to the options of your wacom in your system, anc change the pressure options, or the INCLINATION, its very important!!!

    4 i dont now wich software you use, if its photoshop, go to the temporary cache, and put the cache memory in another partition, restart your software and check if its working.

    do you have new or old computer???

    It does it across all programs, and the distance seems to be quite big - soon as you can move it across the screen, it recognizes pressure. Testing it by moving it up as far and as quickly as possible when I release a line.

    Very sure it didn't do that before >.>

    I wonder if it's because your duo switch is stuck.

    The button did pop out today - first time - I put it back in the right position, since it seemed to be modular and fits just fine.

    Mind you it's acting up more. I went over to the wacom boards themselves to try and get an answer. I'll post here too if they come up with something that I could've screwed up/gone wrong - maybe it will help someone else.

    Edit: thanks for the help by the way. really appreciated

    This problem seems to have fixed itself. (Didn't do anything special, just left the computer off and tablet out.) I think I mightve accidentally left the pen on some water or something, and that dried up, because I come up with any other explanation.
