Change Minimum and Maximum pressure
Hi, after years of using wacom tablets I decided to upgrade from my 13 inch Cintiq to a 20 inch Kamvas.
If there is 1 option I really miss having it would be not being able to set the trigger point, or as wacom calls it the 'click threshold', or not being able to set my max pressure.
Having a customizable trigger point, would allow me to have physical contact with my tablet, before I actually put down a stroke, or before it is considered a mouseclick. It just feels 'too sensitive' without a trigger point.
Right now it feels like before I even feel contact with the tablet surface a click or a stroke has already been registered. If you had a little bit of contact with the surface and you had to apply a bit more pressure with the pen, that would make it feel more like deliberate stroke/click.
Kind of like doing it with the mouse. Your finger rests on the button already, there is a slight amount of travel and finally the click.
With the current pressure settings, there is no 'resting of the finger', and the travel technically occurs after the 'click'
If you could set a trigger point, this would allow you to emulate 'resting of the finger' and the travel, with the initial pressure applied to the pen, and finally when you hit the trigger point, it is the 'click'.
Personally I also think that if you have some contact with the tablet surface, it enables you to be more 'grounded' and you have a point of reference for how much pressure to apply.
On the other end of the spectrum, being able to set the maximum pressure allows us to not need to apply as much force as usual to reach the.. well.. maximum amount of pressure registered by the pen.
So if you tend to have a lighter touch, this would allow you to use 'more' of the pressure range, with less force.
Having the trigger point and max pressure be customizable would allow us to basically remap the range or pressure and give us more control.
Allot of drawing/painting apps nowadays have ways to change the curves inside of the app itself, but obviously you can only use those curves within those apps. It is not system wide.
Photoshop has horrible support for stuff like that in the first place, and from what I know relies on the tablet driver for the pressure 'curve'. So whatever little options I have in the tablet driver software is what I can use for apps with basic pressure support.
So.. please, please, add more options to the pressure sensitivity settings.
And at the bare minimum allow us to remap the range.
