  • 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.

          I need a tablet
          by clickin
          I have a PC and dual monitor setup and I am looking to purchase a tablet to use with photoshop. Does anyone know of a good one at a fair price that I can use with both monitors without splitting up the tablet to use for each monitor. I would like a 6x9 tablet. I hope I explained myself well.

          Looking for Monitor recommendations
          by imann08
          I am looking for a new LCD monitor and was wondering what everyone had to say on the subject. I've got a PC by the way.

          The other question I have regards the effect a wide screen monitor has on a Wacom tablet. I have heard that it throws tablets off because they are shaped differently...
