I am still very new to my tablet, an Intuos 3 6x8. I was wondering, how pressure sensitive should the pad be? Because I have noticed that I can drag the pen across the pad, putting no weight on it, and the pen will not draw anything. Is this normal? I mean for having 1024 pressure levels I would think it would be able to detect a faint drag. Also, in Painter, I have a hard time getting smooth transitions with my pen. It seems that for whatever setting, be it opacity, line width, ect., the pen sems to jump at certain points making very noticable differences in a smooth stroke.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
