Unable to adjust brush size with drawing tablet pen

Recommended Posts


hope someone could help me out with this! I'd need to be able to adjust the brush size in Photo while having pressure sensitivity enabled. Using Windows 10, Wacom Intuous pro, everything is updated.

If I add Photo to wacom settings, I do get pressure sensitivity working fine in Photo. However, if I have Photo added in Wacom, I'm not able to adjust pressure size in Photo by holding right+ alt+ drag.

When I remove Photo from wacom settings, I'm able to adjust the size by alt+drag. I have windows ink on, and pressure sensitivity enabled in Photo.

Try going to Preferences, Tools in Affinity Photo and turning off the Windows Ink option.

Hi, I need some help with this too. Windows Ink is off, but it didn't help me. I fount the following: In the Affinithy Phoro shortcut list it says; Decrease/increase brush with  >>  Right mouse + ALT + drag (left or wight). For the hardness its the same only need to drag up and down. If I do this with my mouse I need to push also the left button of the mouse, then it works. If I set this combination (ALT L + Left button + Right button) on one of the buttons of my pen it doesn't work.

I have a windows 10 PC with the latest Affinity Photo and a wacom tablet (intuos Pro L) with the latest firmware.

Regards, Rob.

@Ron P. , I've tried this and didn't work. In fact it was the last one I tried. Because I had to go I turned of my PC. Now just turned it on and everything works fine. So I can adjust the size and hardness when I holddown the button on my pen and move it left or right or up or down.
