    opacity control by intuos4 wheel?

    hello everyone, i tried search, but nothing found.

    how can i control opacity by tablet's wheel? so basicly i need to set 1-10%, 2-20% ... etc for the scroll wheel, i crushed my brain, but can't find any solution how to do that. are there any work arounds or somehow to control opacity by the wheel?
    thanks!

    I don't think you can do that with the intuos 4 because it's numbers based on ranges 0-9. You can only use 2 variables.

    A zoom in/out and undo/redo only use 2 variables. Opacity at percentages of 10% use 1, 2 for 20% etc.

    yeah, you're right.

    the thing i found if you click into opacity in the upper menu and select numbers, you can scroll the wheel and see how opacity is adjusting accordingly, the bad thing you can't bind any hot key for putting the cursor into opacity menu, otherwise it will be possible to control it by the wheel. ehh, sad (

    Found this method of doing it after a bit of searching. Clear on of your touchwheel or touch strip settings and add ENTER UPARROW ENTER and ENTER DOWNARROW ENTER in the keys. Add SHIFT along with the arrow to go up and down in 10% jumps.

    or if you want to control Flow instead of Opacity, use ENTER, TAB, UPARROW, ENTER

    JohnMalcolm1970, ok i experimented more, i don't know why but for me {SHIFT} is not working, it is present in the command when i press UP or DOWN with SHIFT at the same time, but in photoshop it still jumps in 1%. ok, another thing sometimes it's not scrolling nice, stuck or not changing, the work around for that is set the SLOWEST speed for the wheel. it seems working ok.
    another variation i found:
    bind to any button of the tablet {ENTER} key and grip pen's buttons: top button {UP}{UP}{UP}{UP}{UP} bottom button: {DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}

    now press button with Enter and keep it pressed and tap pen's buttons!
