How do i get pen pressure and sensitivity with a surface pen?

I have had this issue for awhile now, i have been using a surface pro 6 and surface pen on the 3D coat demo.

I haven’t managed to get any pen pressure as brush strokes stay the same.

I have downloaded wintab to see if that worked and it didn’t. I also contacted 3D coat support and they came back with changing tablet interface with windowsink instead of wintab and that didnt work either.

how do i fix this?

The latest "3DCoat" now optionally supports "Tablet PC" instead of "WinTab". 
Enable "Tablet PC" inside "Edit > Preferences > Brushing > Tablet Interface > WinTab

Hope it help

Sorry i am asking this

Did you selected Pen As paint option ? (LMB to switch from mouse to paint selection)

Wow it now works thank you very much.

i changed the symbols to pen and now my brush radius goes small to big. 

But while pressure works it didnt feel like it was adding more volume to the sculpt. Like if i were to put more pressure on, it felt like it changed the size of the brush only instead of how much clay is building up.

This could just be me though. i did try and mess with depth of the brush but it felt like i was sculpting at the same width. I also had multiple crashes when using some tools so im not sure if thats a software or computer problem.

May be you need to select another stroke mode ?

Okay i cant even use it, i dont know why but selecting a brush and using it causes the whole program to crash, ive updated to the current version. I couldnt say if stroke mode would help or not.

It was never like this at the start, and being a demo im not sure how the full program would work any better.
