Turn off Wacom Pen pressure in LrC

Hi, like many others I have a love hate relationship with my Wacom pen but I persevere and often put my touchpad away to force me to use the pen properly.

In PhotoShop there are controls on many of the tools to turn pen pressure off, I want to be able to do the same in Lightroom Classic, is there away?

Trying to use the new masking tools and wanting to draw a straight-line by clicking at one end then holding the shift key before clicking again, when used with auto mask it gives excellent results except that I cannot get a straight of an equal and full pressure with the pen, is there a trick I am missing? If I do this with my touchpad I get a perfect straight-line and mask every time.

Thank you for your help.

Regards, Ian.
