Hi Kazandraa,

Please pull up my Wacom tablet preferences.

Lightroom Fanatic - Wacom Preferences

Under Tracking, find the Pen Mode Mapping button and click it to bring up the mapping options.

Lightroom Fanatic - Wacom Tablet Preferences - Tracking

The Screen Area options allow you to specify whether you want the tablet to track across all of your screens, a specific monitor, or a portion of a screen. By default, the workspace will be mapped to both screens. Select the monitor Lightroom Fanatic - Wacom Tablet Preferences - Tracking

Thanks

If above steps does not work follow these

Instructions

  1. Turn on your Cintiq monitor. If you have properly installed the Cintiq, it will display a second computer desktop. It will also detect the tip of the stylus as a mouse controller when you bring the stylus near to the screen.
  2. Launch Photoshop on your computer. By default, the program will open in your computer's primary monitor screen.
  3. Click the "Window" button from the top-right corner of the Photoshop window if the program is not already running in windowed mode. This will allow you to move the Photoshop window freely.
  4. Left-click and hold on the top frame of the Photoshop window and drag the window from your main monitor into the Cintiq monitor screen.
  5. Release the mouse button to place the window in the Cintiq monitor. You may need to click and drag on the sides of the window to resize it to fit the display.
  6. Drag the Photoshop toolbars and any other windows into the Cintiq monitor. These windows move individually and will each require placement in the second display.
  7. Click the "File" menu, then click "Open" to open an existing file or "New" to create a new blank canvas. You can use the stylus to select these options on the Cintiq screen.
  8. Select a drawing tool from the toolbar, such as a pencil, pen or paintbrush tool. You can choose the draw

Hi, followed all the steps above, but the photoshop menu bar still remains on my primary screen, the macbook and when working in photoshop you still need to access a lot of stuff from the menu bar. is there a way to get that into the cintiq as well?

 

Thanks
