    Corel Painter Tilt problem

    Hello! My copy of Painter has been working flawlessly with my Intuos4 tablet, but all of a sudden Painter refuses to draw with the pen tilted. The brush ghost *does* show the tilt just fine, but when I try and draw a line it just draws it like I'm holding the pen straight up and down. The odd thing is the tilt works just fine in Photoshop and other programs, which is driving me NUTS! I have tried multiple drivers for the tablet, but I can't seem to strangely, get the drivers completely removed from my machine. After uninstalling them, it's keeping my prefs, even when I remove the wacom prefs folder. Does anyone have any ideas before my head explodes? Thanks!

    Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Painter?

    Thanks for the reply! I did a 'repair', but I'll go ahead and try a reinstall. It's just so odd that this only happens in Painter. Though, I remember this happening once, but I also can't remember how I fixed it...

    Thanks for the reply Ikken! Darnit! That didn't work. I need to figure out how to completely and utterly remove the wacom drivers. I can uninstall them, and choose to delete my prefs, but it still keeps them for some reason, and that might be why?

    Try searching/posting at wacom boards ( http://forum.wacom.eu/ ), a wacom person is checking them regularly and you'll get some response within a working day
    probably faster if you post now, they're in European time zone.

    Thanks Ikken! I was also going to post at the Painterfactory boards but for some reason I can't get my login to work, and even when I make a new account it's still not working.

    The thing is the feature works in other software, which means it's not the tablet's fault. Unless you installed a new driver which specifically skewer's Painter's performance, I doubt it's the tablet driver.

    Aghhh! I'm having the same problem. Reinstalled both drivers and software, and nothing goes.

    I can't believe this thread was here, because I was just coming to post it. That's the second time that's happened to me. ha

    I know! It's driving me crazy. I'm going through Painter withdrawal.

    Fixed!!

    Wahoo! Wacom Europe's forum comes through again.

    "This is on a Windows system ? Search for any files with the name tablet.dat, wacom_tablet.dat and if you had a very old driver als wacom.dat. The files should be removed especially from SYSTEM32."

    I uninstalled the driver, then removed these files from the system32 directory, then restarted, then reinstalled the driver and it works again!

    Okay, WTF? It was working fine and then stopped again... (I was trying out the demo of Sketchbook pro, then painter stopped working again.) AGHHH.

    **EDIT** After removing user prefs for the Tablet driver it's working again. So bizarre!

    what windows version do you have?

    I've recently upgraded to windows 7/64 (have been on vista x32 before), and the recent drivers are working quite lame with my intuos3

    wacom suggested rolling back to v. 611 or something, the March 2010 build of drivers, as it's the most stable one so far.

    (at least I don't have issues with painter, as it's my primary painting program, ughhhhh)

    I had a problem in the past with Photoshop CS5. It happened just after installing some new Wacom drivers. I wasn't getting to pressure or tilt or rotation in Photoshop, but things were working fine in Painter 11 (and in the Wacom diagnostics).

    The solution was to uninstall the Wacom drivers completely. Then I ran CCleaner which sorted out any leftover bits and bobs in the registry. Then I re-booted and installed the drivers.

    Sometimes Wacom drivers can simply be installed over older ones. But sometimes they can't.
