HELLO i've searched the forums for this issue but cannot find it--
it's QUITE tricky---DEALS w/ a real health/RSI hand-problem:
I need to switch wacom's PEN mode from absolute to
[NOTE: i've tried all the tablet pref's & properties BUT
i'm only able to map-changes to the
tablet's "live" area [i.e. changes the overall active-region YET
will not change the relative versus absolute mode for PEN use]..
wacom's intuos3 seems only to allow their
MOUSE to work in relative mode, not the Pen..meh..
I have serious hand-health RSI problems & it turns out
that the relative mode is BEST for
me yet i cannot get the PEN to work that way-- it only works in
absolute-coordinate-mode..I've been to wacom's OWN site &
yet i received no info
(also tried posting this to CGsociety & a few other
Wow that was hard to read.
Yes, you can do that - it's in the Wacom control panel/driver settings.
(on some tablets there was even a set of pre-programmed buttons at the top that did it)
hello Chris, my apolgies re: >wow that was hard to read<....Well, it turns out
that i'd posted this to a few other forums/boards on the net & most of the
replies i received were questions that
just required me to give all those details-- so this time i made sure i spelled-it-all-out..
((ALSO, i have severe OCD---obsessive compulsive disorder---so my post was
actually not as long as it would'a been if i hadn't edited-it-down))..
SO u suggested that this CAN be done using wacom's settings..?..CAN u give
My intuos3 doesn't seem to have any setting that i've been able to
successfully find so far -- I tried both of these::
1) Tablet Pref's,
2) tablet Properties..
THANX in advance for more info.... rob
This forum is to comment on how the forums operate, it is not for support for products
You should contact the vendor of that product... or find an Adobe forum where that product is used (Photoshop?) and ask the people who use the product with their Adobe software
hello John & Chris & all....PROBLEM solved....
(( btw John, sorry for posting in wrong forum---i searched other forums but
didn't find the correct one---i recall there were about 10 pages of my SEARCH results,
thus i couldn't find any paricular thread;
i'll KEEP in mind for future posts.))
Problem was that i had not remembered that PHOTOSHOP (on my XP system)
to be RE-started OR these settings do not take effect.
So this now functions properly: when in
TABLET PROPERTIES>select pen in TOOLS list>select “Mapping” tab>click on "mouse..
THANKS for feedback-- Rob
Sometimes it is a tough call, as to where a post should go. I use my Wacoms with several programs, though Painter and Photoshop are definitely the big two. Given that this is an Adobe forum, I would have chosen the Photoshop forum, especially as so very users there employ Wacoms, and other tablets.
Either way, you found the answer, and that is job 1.
