Okay so I was just working on painting in a project and suddenly noticed that my brush wasn't changing size based on pressure. So I had to turn it on. I confess I don't use Affinity Photo every day, honestly I haven't had any massive drawing projects since it came out (I guess maybe that says something?) But every time I open an Affinity app and start designing something I go through a time where I'm drawing and all my lines are super uniform and it takes a few seconds or minutes (depending on how essential size variation is) before it kicks in, "Damnit, my stylus isn't doing pressure sensitivity!"

Pressure sensitivity is the default in Photoshop if I remember correctly it also was in Illustrator. ANYONE who buys a Wacom buys it because they want their work to look more like drawing not because they want a mouse shaped like a pencil. I feel like the number of people who don't use pressure sensitivity is dwarfed by the number who do. (Assuming they own a drawing tablet or Apple Pencil.) Why can't pressure sensitivity be the default? It is in every other drawing app. Heck it is in Apple's Notes! It just seems so bassackward to have it off by default.

I have to agree with this. Most of the brushes (I believe) have it turned off and it would be great to have it turned on as default. If someone is then using a pen it will work and if they're not and just using a mouse or other input device then well it's not going to make any difference to them anyway.

Definitely add my voice to a +1 vote for this.

Best wishes,

Mark
