Your pressure-sensitive pen tablet allows you to create smooth lines with a variety of widths and opacities that are virtually impossible to match using a standard mouse. Most graphics programs automatically detect your pressure-sensitive pen tablet, but some may require extra configuration. PaintTool SAI requires users of certain types of Wacom pen tablets to reset the pen tablet preferences so the pen works properly. You can reset your tablet preferences using the Tablet Preference File Utility that is installed with your Wacom pen tablet drivers.
