Tablet use with twin Monitors

Hi All

Just wondering if it is possible to use the 'pen' to access the second monitor, where I have my menu's etc and I use the main monitor just for the picture. I hope that is clear!!!

The mouse has no problems moving between both monitors, but the 'pen' seems restricted to the main monitor only.

Apart from learning ALL the keyboard controls, I seem to spend time switching from pen to mouse.

I have a Packard Bell Tablet.

I have a twin monitor setup and have just got my Intuos tablet back from extended loan to a friend. I'm just about to set it up I'll let you know how I get on.

Thanks Chris.

Not good if it cannot work

Maybe it is just the Bell tablet.

Hope you can get yours to work OK

Maybe a bit late to reply...

But I've got 2 monitors (17" & 19"), anyhow, I also have a Wacom Intuos2 tablet. I have no problem accessing both monitors with my tablet pen/tool.

It's great, since I've got all my palettes and toolbars/etc on the second monitor.

Not sure about the Packard Bell tablet...if it doesn't work, then most likely a limitation in the Bell tablet SW.
