I will show you how to use a tablet, and how to adjust the pen pressure. First, are the basics of the pen tablet. Make sure you place the pen tablet directly in front of the monitor. This is good for beginners, as it is closer to normal drawing. The pen touching the tablet is the same as holding down the left mouse button. One tap with the pen tip is the same as a single click, two taps are the same as a double click. Moving the pen above the surface without touching it will move the cursor. Press the button on the side of the pen to right click. The same button can be set to double click and middle click. The position and functions of the buttons may be different from your model. Different keys can be assigned using the driver settings. Moving the pen while the pen tip touches the tablet is the same as dragging the mouse. This is how drawing works with the pen. The four corners of a pen tablet’s drawing area correspond to the four corners of the screen. Touching a tablet with a pen will show the cursor in the same spot on-screen. So if a pen is near the bottom left of a tablet, the screen’s cursor will be at the bottom left too. Wacom tablets can also adjust mapping and range of movement of the cursor using the tablet properties. Tablet drivers can also adjust how brush strokes feel. Basic settings can be set from the Wacom pen tablet [Properties]→[Pen]→[Tip Feel]. In some cases, pen pressure settings can be adjusted with graphics software. For example, CLIP STUDIO PAINT has [Pen pressure settings] in the [File] menu. The sensitivity of pens and brushes used in CLIP STUDIO PAINT can be set. Open [Auto adjust pen pressure] and draw lines while changing the pressure. Based on the drawn lines, CLIP STUDIO PAINT automatically creates the best settings. Adjustments can be made from one stroke, or multiple strokes. When testing the adjusted results, click [Try adjusted results] and test the feel of the brush. When you are satisfied , click [OK] Each subtool has its own options to adjust pen pressure. Each pen and brush can be adjusted in detail. Pressure settings can be displayed by clicking the icon next to the
sub tool’s [Tool property] palette→[Brush size]. From here, you can apply and disable pressure settings,
set a minimum pressure, or set pressure along a curve. By adding control points by clicking the curve, details can be adjusted. To remove a control point, click on it and drag it out of frame. With this, the preparations for drawing with the tablet are done.
