Has anyone tried using Wacom Tablet's with CS3? The tablet itself works fine, but some functions do not work when using a regular mouse, i.e. eraser, quick selection tool etc. I need to unplug the tablet completely (without exiting from PS) to be able to use the mouse, which is really annoying since I use the tablet for fine tuning, while performing basic functions with a regular mouse.

I'm using A Wacom Intuos 3 with driver 4.96-8 and WinXP SR2 with PS CS3.

I can use both the pens and the mouse (regular mouse). But I'm using the latest mouse and keyboard (wireless) drivers too. Right click on the mouse properties sheet and pick About leads to version 6.01.250.0.

Mine is Graphire (pen+mouse - all work) with the latest drivers, and the standard Dell optical mouse(not all tools work in CS3 while tablet is connected).
Have you tried all tools: eraser, brush, quick selection etc?

Pressure dynamics don't seem to work at all with my Intuos 3 with
latest driver. Very disappointed.

Found the solution - need to change brush settings from Pen Pressure to Off. Then everything works.

Here's my problem. Pen pressure works fine on CS2 but not on CS3, even with the latest driver. I tried re-installing photoshop cs3 so many times but the problem just won't go away. Sometimes pen pressure works but most of the time it does not. Weird.

I just installed the driver for windows vista for my intuos 3, and somehow the eraser tool does not work with the eraser part of the tablet (unless, I manually go to the eraser tool). I'm using photoshop cs3.. Is it supposed to be that way?

Robert Barnett,

You write in post #3:

No problems here. Latest driver for Vista, Intuos 3 9x11.




But then in post #8:

Your lucky you got that much working in Vista. I can't get the tablet
to work at all.




Is it my age, or is this in contradiction?

Maybe this is the Solution for all of you:

"Certain programs (as PVIllustration mentions) don't like Pressure Sensitivity and need to be told what to do.... as in the Art Program 'Twistedbrush' from Pixarra.

In order to get this program to accept pressure sensitivity you have to alter the programs .exe file.

1. Right click on the .exe file and select properties.
2. Click on the 'Compatibility' tab.
3. Go down to the 'Input Settings' box and click 'Turn off advanced text services for this program'." (Quote)
