Apple Pencil stopped Working with Astro Pad


I was having a great time using my ipad and apple pencil editing away in Photoshop. Aafter about 3 hours use the pencil be came unresponsive and jerky, now it doesn’t work at all. I can control menu items though nothing in the workspace. Any clues?


Try plugging Apple Pencil directly to the iPad port for some time and try again.

Sometimes the stylus can get disconnected from the iPad.
Also try restarting both the iPad and Mac apps, as well as turning off and back on Bluetooth from your iPad.

For the brush tool you’re using in Photoshop, if you lower “Smoothing”, is there any difference?

Apologies for the inconvenience.


Hiya, thanks for the reply. I’ll explore and get back to you.

Ok… just updated the app and Photoshop I have deleted the app from the ipad and the mac and have reloaded. The pencil works with everything else except in the workspace.
