Pressure option not showing / grayed out with Wacom tablets/pens
Wacom pressure not showing on menus illustrator 25.4.1.
But if I use the Wacom 6d brushes, it have the pressure. But again, if I turn of pressure on Wacom brushes, it goes grey again and I can't turn on again.
And if I create a brushes from scractch, pressure is greyed out, and I'm using Bir Sur, and can't go back the drivers, like I did on the old machine (Wacom drivers, but there is high Sierra, that support an old drivers) it worked on old driver. But on Big Sur I have not this option. and I already tried with 6.3.43-3 the same problem.

I'm also having the same problem, have been looking for a solution for months to no avail.

If anyone's stuck on this--there's a very awkward work-around listed on the Wacom site here:
I ended up having to install AI 2020 first in order to prompt Illustrator to ask Big Sur to allow Illustrator to use Wacom on the Automation list under Privacy settings, but once that was done I was able to upgrade to AI 2022 and continue using tablet pressure in AI

We are experiencing the same problem, and, in fact it even seems like Wacom know about this problem themselves:
"Note: There is an issue with Adobe Illustrator 2021 that does not allow you to make the above selection in the system preferences. To resolve this issue you will need to uninstall the Wacom Driver and Adobe Illustrator, then reinstall the Wacom driver (following the steps from step 1) and then install the older 2020 version of Illustrator. If this version does not appear on the Creative Cloud application list, please reach out to Adobe Support."
We have also tested the latest edition of Illustrator (26.0.2 at time of writing) and that still does not solve this issue. I am positive this is an Illustrator-specific problem because even Photoshop works fine with pen pressure settings out of the box.

Same problem with my Intuos Pro M 2017. Pen pressure on Illustrator 25.4.1
I'm having the same problem.
macOS Big Sur v 11.5.2
Wacom Cintiq 22HDT
I just downgraded to an earlier version of illustrator, and then t all works perfectly again! Not ideal solution but it does the trick for now!
Could someone HELP, i have the same problem
I browsed online through this section here and through other online platforms with none of the solutions worked including ones given by say, Adobe Engineering Team personnel like Rama as posted by someone recently.
How can I solve this? Thanks.
