what's going on with my wacom?
show user profile  parkerfamily
it no longer uses the mouse based on where the pen is positioned, so the bottom corner of my pad isn't necessarily the bottom corner of my screen. where do i go for setting to my wacom? because currently the mouse speed is painfully slow (3 crosses across the pad to cross the screen)

seems like your mouse went from pen type to mouse type in your wacom preferences.

go into the control panel and go to the wacom settings and set it back to pen type

i have, and the mouse says mouse type and the pen says pen type, yet they both act like mouse. i've tried every setting i can find in the wacom settings program and it still acts like a mouse. i'm now searching vista settings for something that could be screwing it up.

Restart the computer, and if that doesn't work, reinstall the tablet drivers.

This has happened to me a few times. Sometimes happens when I plug in the tablet when the comp is on. Other times I can plug and play just fine? I just resort to a quick restart and works fine.

Annoying but not permanent.

Wacom drivers are the worst drivers in the history of drivers.

I even had a script which would kill the driver process and restart it to fix my tablet when it wigged out because it happened so often.

Hmmm, you just have pen mode and mouse mode in the wacom settings app (you find it on the control panel). I never had any problems with any of my tablets (Intuos 1, Intuos 2, Volito and Cintiq). If on rare occasion the driver doesn't load or crashes a simple reboot always fixed the problem.

That said I don't understand why people would even want to work in pen mode, ever!! It sucks.

i have had the same issues before. The following fixed it:

1) plug ur wacom directly into the motherboard (ie the back of the cabinet instead of the ports at the front etc).

2) delete your photoshop preferences file. Load up PS again, and itl generate another pref file automatically. For some reason that also solved PS crashing on me when using the tablet. (im assuming ofcourse that your using photoshop with it. hehe)

hope that helps.

if you're on vista disable all of the Vista pen settings, Vista will want to take control of your Wacom and it gets annoying.

Every time i've had to reinstall vista and setup my tablet i spend about an hour so disabling all of Vista's crap that interferes with the Wacom drivers.
