Question Graphire 2 Help

I am using the Graphire 2, which I just recently purchased. I am having alittle problem with getting it to respond like I want it to. To me it makes the cursor seem very loose and fast. Is there a way to control this? I tried to fix it in the Wacom tablet control panel. I cant seem to get this under control. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this problem? It is becoming very irritating. For instance I was trying to draw a straight line and it came out crooked. Not because I didn't go in a straight line, but because the cursor is loose and fast. Any help you can give to me would be greatly appreciated. If none can help me, then I guess it is back to the dreaded mouse......PLEASE HELP ME!

One thing that helped me was switching the tablet from "Pen mode" to "Mouse mode". This way the tablet handles more like a mouse and allows you to reduce the speed and level of acceleration. This is the setting I use...seems to work pretty well as far as control and speed goes.

Graphire 2

I tried your suggestions and found that if you put your Graphire 2 in mouse mode, the pen will not function throughout the space of the tablet. It makes it as if the pen will only function in a predetermined area of the tablet, and not the full screen as if in pen mode. Is there any way to fix this? If so please let me know. I would appreciate it. Thanks for answering my question.

Graphire 2 update......

I have another question. I just updated the driver for my Graphire 2 tablet and in the read me file it says that it is compatible with the Graphire 2 (ETA) and the Graphire (ET). Now I looked at the back of my supposed Graphire 2 and it showed (ET) not (ETA) as stated in the readme and on various websites on the internet. Is there something wrong here? Everywhere I have looked for this info it says the Graphire 2 is (ETA) and the Graphire is (ET). If this is the case then something is wrong. Does anyone elses Graphire 2 show (ET) instead of (ETA)? Or does your Graphire 2 show (ETA) as it is supposed to be. Please let me know if I am just being paranoid and there really isn't anything to be worried about. I appreciate any and all help you can give to me on this. Thanks in advance........

Hi Fotofreak,

I have a Graphire, not Graphire 2, but the model number on the back says just "ET". I've never had a problem with it.

When you say that the cursor moves too fast, I assume you mean when you're using the pen (not the mouse)? In the Wacom Properties dialog, under the Mapping/Speed tab, I have mine set to:
Positioning mode: Pen
Tablet area: Entire tablet
Display area: Entire display
Aspect: To fit

With those settings, the cursor should track the pen movement exactly - not accelerate and not jump around.

You may also want to try adjusting the "Tip Feel". Perhaps a "firmer" setting would work better for you?

HTH, Jeanie
