So I got my intuos4 recently, and it's a thing of beauty. Everything works fine except for an odd glitch I can't seem to figure out. The rotate canvas toggle on my touch ring doesn't seem to work.
I've been using it mostly in PS CS4, when I try to rotate with the touch ring the cursor on the computer just flickers between whatever tool I'm on and the eyedropper tool. The funny thing is it does this only with the rotate option. If i assign a different function to the 4th setting, like zoom, it's fine again.
Is there some option or setting I have to change to get this to work? It doesn't seem like a problem with the hardware since other options work fine (although no number shows up on the diagnostic menu). I have no idea what to do here and man, I need that rotate working D:
The driver version is 6.1.0-6. I'd really appreciate any help you guys could offer. Thanks.
Works fine for me on Intuos4 with Photoshop CS4.... rotates in 5 degree increments. MY keyboard doesn't have those function keys either. It doesn't matter.... when you rotate your finger on the ring you are sending those keyboard commands to Photoshop whether your physical keyboard has those keys or not.
Perhaps updating your drivers might help? I'm on 6.1.1-3
Well, driver's updated. Still the same problem. So I guess i'm in the same boat as Rinthe for now. (Unless... you've managed to get your's working somehow ; P ?). Good thing Painter has a rotate function.
Happy I found this thread, thanks for the info Griffu.
However, I still have a problem. I'm using CS3 with my Intuos 4 and had the same problem as you with my 2nd, 3rd and 4th radial menu function keys. So zoom worked, not the others. So I turned up the performance option (couldn't find an "Enable OpenGL Drawing" box in my CS3 menus), and tried a few different %'s. Strangely, turning it up to anything above what it was before (60-70-80+) all made the 2nd and 3rd radial keys work - so I can cycle layers and change brush size.
BUT, my 4th function, rotate canvas still does the same flicker/eyedropper/start key etc. malarkey
