Pen Pressure Sensitivity Not Working

When using ZBrush or ZBrushCore via Remote Desktop or on certain mobile devices (such as a Surface tablet), you may lose pressure sensitivity.  The ZBrush 2020.1.3 or ZBrushCore 2020.1.3 update fixes this issue.  However, beyond simply installing the update there are specific steps that must be followed.


First, please update to 2020.1.3.  You can do this by two methods:

  1. If you have ZBrush 2020 or ZBrushCore 2020 (any point number) you can browse to its folder on your computer and run the ZUpgrader utility.  This will locate the update and walk you through the installation steps.
  2. Alternatively, you can uninstall your current version then download a new copy of the installer from My Licenses.  This will always give you the most up to date version of your software.

After you have version 2020.1.3 installed, the following steps must be used to enable pressure sensitivity in the desired environment:


Usage with Wacom Device

  • It is recommended to Disable 'Windows Ink' in 'Wacom Tablet Properties'

Usage with Surface Pen

  • It is recommended to Enable 'Show cursor' in 'Pen & Windows Ink' settings

Remote Desktop Usage with Wacom Device

  • Client Machine:
    • Enable 'Windows Ink' in Wacom Tablet Properties
  • Server Machine:
    • Disable 'Show Cursor' in 'Pen & Windows Ink' settings

Remote Desktop Usage with Surface Pen

  • Client Machine:
    • Enable 'Show Cursor' in 'Pen & Windows Ink' settings
  • Server Machine:
    • Disable 'Show Cursor' in 'Pen & Windows Ink' settings

Thanks!
