Hi, I'm quite new here so if I'm in the wrong place, please point me at the right place. Since I changed my PC (got a new Toshiba satellite, Laptop) and got a new Windows at the same time (W7), I'm experiencing some strange behavior from my tablet. If I plug it in , all the "brush based" tools such as clone, brush, eraser seems to have a life of their own. For example, if I touch-up in some very precise place in a picture, then the tool moves all by itself some place else (like if it jumped) and draw something of its own (not the same "pattern, I was drawing in 1st place) so it's CTRL-Z every time. The 1st weird thing is that it's getting better if I make a big touch on the tablet before moving the pen, I mean If I'm trying to draw by slightly and softly move the pen on the tablet, it's getting wrong and when I touch then slide the pen it's OK. The second weird thing is when I stop using the tablet and get the mouse (not the Wacom mouse) the same thing occurs (without the touch-slide thing, as I can't do that with the mouse). I need to unplug the tablet, close PS, run PS again, Not replug the tablet and try to do some tedious touch-ups with my mouse (Arrrgggghhhh....). Checked that all my drivers were the latest, they are. Checked the pen tip, looks OK. Checked my settings in PS for the brushed with tablets looks OK (hence, I'm a little confused by the too much complicated way it's handled with CS4, not sure I got the right settings). So Now I'm stucked.
I'm considering buying the wireless intuos (or at least a new Graphire) anyway but this one needs to last -let's say- 2 or 3 months more.
Thanks in Advance.
