  • Tablets: Tablet Pen and Mouse won't react how it has before

    I've used my tablet for about a year now and have gotten used to the sensation of when my tablet pen or mouse is placed somewhere on the tablet, it is in the exact same place on the screen. ie. When the mouse is in the middle of the tablet, the mouse in the middle of the screen. This feature obviously eliminates constant pushes on the mouse to get it where you want. I recently recieved a new computer and installed everything I had installed on my previous computer but now, my tablet does not react how it has in the past.

    Since you mention a new computer, my guess is you'll need to calibrate the tablet on your new system.

      Since reinstalling stuff you may need to reset your tablet's mapping. Should be set to "map for screen" for a Wacom.

        I prefer mouse mapping for both my pen and mouse (it means relative positioning instead of absolute).

          Heys, I'm not sure if this would be the right place to post this but I'm having some tablet response issues myself. I've been using my tablet (wacom intuos 3) for about 2 years now and had to recently reinstall it to my laptop. For some reason the tablet pen reacts fine to everything (e.g. the desktop, firefox, etc.) but as soon as I open up an Adobe program like Photoshop it either freezes on me or lags significantly, yet when I go back to say the desktop it works fine again.

          Any idea why? Any help would be greatly appreciated : )

            by smak
            Hi:

            I can't find info on Bamboo Pen Tablet - can I use my mouse and the tablet at same time. I would have my mouse on right side and tablet on the left.
            Thanks for any info on this.

            Anyone use a Wacom tablet mouse?
            by DJ Dubovsky
            With the recent thread about computer mice, I wondered if anyone who has a Wacom tablet also uses the mouse that goes with it. I like the idea of a cordless, batteryless optical mouse so I was hoping someone may have had experience with it.
