I need an easy, step-by-step guide to making my pen have sensitivity in Photoshop.  I've tried all the "easy" fixes, like making sure pen sensitivity is checked under brush settings, & opening PS with the pen, not my mouse.  I've just downloaded the newest driver from wacom.com, & still, I can't vary the thinkness of lines I draw.  I'm at my wit's end here, please someone help me. :(


Model: Intuos CTL-480


System: Windows 7


Photoshop: CS3


Any other info I need to give you guys to help me troubleshoot it?


EDIT: After that last driver download & opening PS with the pen, pressure is currently working.  Still, this was monumentally annoying, & from what I've read from other people with similar problems, it may randomly decide to not draw properly with pressure.  ..sighs..

CS3 is a bit out-dated for some of the newer drawing tablets. The newer versions are much better at pen recognition and pressure points of the devices. I had a similar issue with my Wacom tablet but after moving to PS Creative Cloud, it works perfectly with no other changes (IE: Drivers/software updates)
