Lag with pen recognition every minute or so

Postby loek25 » Fri 27. Sep 2019, 08:42


With my new Dell xps I have a problem in photoshop. Whenever I draw with my wacom tablet there is some lag every minute or so. Instead of smooth lines the brush can only make really short straight lines. The problem dissapears when I click outside of photoshop and then go back to photoshop.

I have turned off windows ink and I'm using the code:
# Use WinTab
UseSystemStylus 0

All drivers are up to date as well as photoshop. I also tried it with a previous update of photoshop.
I tested this on another Dell laptop as well.

I posted this issue in the adobe forum as well: https://community.adobe.com/t5/Photoshop/Every-minute-or-so-the-brush-stops-working-and-only-makes-short/m-p/10630902#M265185

The lag seems to appear randomly every minute or so and I have no idea what causes it.

Any help is appreciated.

Try resetting any pen, touch assignments in the Wacom tablet settings. What Wacom driver do you use? You could also try to remove and reinstall a previous driver https://www.wacom.com/en/support/product-support/drivers

It rather sounds like a Adobe issue.
