I just recently installed a second monitor, but now I'm running into an issue.
The tablet has to compensate for both monitors, and the, err, aspect ratio of the tablet is squished on both ends, so all my circles end up coming out like ellipses.
What tablet settings do I need to change in order to have the tablet only recognize the primary monitor?
The tablet in question is a 6x8 Gapphire Bluetooth.
Thanks in advance.
should be somewhere in the wacom software
screen mapping or something, can't remember off the top of my head but its there ;]
Control panel -> wacom tablet properties -> screen area.
You might want to click "force proportions" if the aspect ratio of your tablet and screen differ. (like if you're using a 9x12 intuos 3 on a 16:10 widescreen monitor)
Slash is right on the money there. Also, since doing this will make you use only one of the monitors, you can map one of the function keys (Maybe the Graphire don't have function keys? If so, sorry =)) to switch monitor with.
The three tablet related property settings I have on my control panel are "Pen and Input Devices", "Pen Tablet Properties", and "Tablet PC Settings".
"Pen Table Properties" is the only one that has anything to do with Wacom and doesn't have anything like force screen proportions.
I get 3 Tabs: Pen, Pop-Up Menu, and Tablet. I also made sure to download the latest drivers. Maybe I downloaded the wrong ones?
It has two function keys on the top.
You need to klick on "Details" it's s bit hidden in the Graphire settings.
And you can't toggle screens with the graphire, so you'll just have to map it to your bigger screen and use the touchpad for the other, works better than you may think.
Holy crap, I must be blind. How did I not see that before?
I got it working now. Thanks for your help!
