Wondering how to turn off pressure sensitivity in Procreate? If you’re new to Procreate, you might have noticed that the pressure sensitivity feature can be a bit overwhelming at first.
While it’s a great tool for creating dynamic and expressive artwork, it can also be frustrating if you’re trying to achieve a specific effect or style.
Luckily, turning off pressure sensitivity in Procreate is a simple process that can help you create the artwork you want.
First you’ll need to access the Preferences menu. From there, you can adjust the pressure curve to turn off sensitivity for all brushes or for individual brushes.
You can also adjust other settings like brush size and opacity to further customize your artwork.
By turning off pressure sensitivity, you can create more consistent strokes and lines in your artwork.
This can be especially helpful if you’re working on a project that requires precise lines or shapes.
While pressure sensitivity is a valuable tool in Procreate, it’s important to know how to turn it off when you need to.
Read on for more in-depth instructions on Pressure Sensitivity Settings.
Accessing the Preferences Menu
To turn off pressure sensitivity in Procreate, you need to access the Preferences menu.
The Preferences menu contains a variety of settings that you can adjust to customize the way Procreate works.
To access the Preferences menu, first, tap on the wrench icon in the top left corner of the interface. This will open the Actions menu. From here, you can access a variety of different settings and tools.
Next, select the Prefs tab. This will take you to the Preferences menu, where you can adjust a variety of different settings related to Procreate.
Adjusting Pressure Curve
The pressure curve in Procreate controls how the pressure applied to the Apple Pencil affects the brush stroke.
You can adjust the pressure curve to make the brush more or less sensitive to pressure.
To adjust or edit pressure curve, tap on the Actions button (small wrench icon) on the top left of your screen, then select Pressure and Smoothing in the Prefs tab.
The bottom portion of the graph or the x-axis refers to the pressure or force detected. The left side of the graph or y-axis refers to the size of the brush stroke.
The default pressure curve in Procreate is a straight diagonal line, which means that the brush stroke will gradually increase in size as you apply more pressure to the Apple Pencil.
You can adjust the curve by dragging the points on the graph up or down.
If you want to reset the pressure curve to its default settings, come back to the Pressure Curve and tap on Reset. This will reset the curve to a default S-shape curve.
Adjusting the pressure curve can help you achieve the desired effect for your artwork.
For example, if you want to create a sketchy look, you can adjust the curve to make the brush more sensitive to pressure.
On the other hand, if you want to create a more precise line, you can adjust the curve to make the brush less sensitive to pressure.
Manipulating Brush Settings

You have the option to turn off pressure sensitivity across Procreate or for an individual brush.

Turning Off Pressure Sensitivity for an Individual Brush
If you want to turn off pressure sensitivity for an individual brush, you need to make a copy of the brush and set the size to zero in the Apple Pencil settings of the brush settings.
To do this, first select the brush you want to modify. Then, tap on the brush settings icon and select “Duplicate.”
Next, tap on “Apple Pencil” and set the size to zero. This will turn off pressure sensitivity for that specific brush.

Utilizing Procreate Pocket and Other Versions
If you are using Procreate Pocket, you may be wondering if it has pressure sensitivity. Unfortunately, in most cases, Procreate Pocket does not have pressure sensitivity.
Your iPhone would need to have 3D touch for pressure sensitivity to work. However, 3D touch has been eliminated by Apple and replaced by haptic touch which does not support pressure sensitivity.
Third-party Bluetooth styluses can have wonky results with Procreate Pocket, so it may be best to stick with the Apple Pencil for the best experience.
