Hi Chuck, the great thing about the software which drives these devices is that you can disable buttons that you don't like to use (tablet pens or intellimouse side buttons or whatever).

Just head into your Wacom tablet control panel or the MS Intellipoint control panel or whatever and go hunting.

That being said, if you don't use the duobutton on the Wacom pen and it can be removed/replaced then that would also work and make things a bit easier to hold.

The thing I don't like about the MS Intellimouse is that it is too high...after the sleek 'no button' Mac G4 transparent case optical mouse I really like a _low_ profile mouse (but I really hate the first iMac 'hockey puck' round mouse design which was flawed in so many ways). If I recall things correctly, both MS and Apple license their optical mouse technology from HP. <g>

Stephen Marsh.

Sorry Greg, guess we did get a little off the original subject.

No problem. Off topic is fine to a degree and I would not normally split off a thread unless it really has become a new topic alltogether. There was a lot of good info being shared that many people could miss if it's buried in a thread about the Graphire 2. As Doug states-
We have a continual stream of new users, and if the topic doesn't match the conversation they'll never find it. This does not mean you can't talk about whatever's on your mind. Just if it departs too far from the topic of the thread, start a new thread and label it appropriately.

By the way, like Stephen mentioned, I disabled a lot of my pen's buttons and double click function because I was having the same problems you were. I just use my mouse for navigating and save the tablet for Photoshop but even in Photoshop I disabled the duoswitch since I kept hitting it and changing tools by accident!
