Troubleshoot no pressure while drawing

Usually this problem seems to be a problem with the pen, but can also be a problem with the driver, and sometimes can be the tablet itself.

Try the Common drawing troubleshooting steps these should resolve things most of the time. If that doesn't work, contact support.

Some things to check

  • Does the pressure work in the tablet driver pressure test region?

  • What happens with the Krita tablet tester?

    • Krita > Settings > Configure Krita > Tablet settings > Open Tablet Tester

  • See what happens with Windows PNP drivers instead of the manufacturer drivers: Testing with Windows PNP drawing tablet drivers

Some other things to try

  • Reset the pressure curve in the tablet driver

  • Reset the pressure curve in your app

  • Reset the pressure curve in the brush in the app you are using

  • If you recently swapped nibs, see if going back to the old nib fixes the problem
