And finally, http://www.here-there-be-monsters.net/ is the place to be if you want to buy some of my work that has been kitted by the talented hand of Dave.
Pen mode was correct.
Touch mode orientation was Right handed mode
I had to navigate with the stylus over to the Mapping, change the mapping to something else, and reset it to Express Keys right - Left handed mode.
It's happening every time I update the driver and it makes me nuts.
Well, I'm back.
Still no word on a non touch large? God dammit, Wacom.
Arshes, how's the surface sheet and the rubber of your tablet been holding up? Getting shiny, or still just as good?
I may just screw it and grab a large 5, since the 4 has been completely killed off now. Just hoping Arshes build quality has still been solid.
It still has been holding up well. I'm getting along better with the tablet now with the later driver updates. HUD is actually pretty good now. Also, a Wacom representative has been in contact with me because of my Amazon review.
I still get odd mapping issues when updating the drivers but I'm going through and seeing if the other bugs have been killed off that I mentioned in my review.
Ok everyone....can I get a sanity check here? I think my Intuos 5 is having connection problems within MONTHS since I purchased it. It took my other wacoms years to develope a connection issue.
I noticed every time that I moved my tablet up, it would shut off and then restart itself. Then I touched the usb cord, the 'B' plug that is connected to tablet, down just a tinnnyy bit, and my tablet would reset itself.
....Is this normal and I just didn't notice it till now? Am I going goddamn crazy here or is this a connection issues? I have tried 3 other cords and they react the same way so I know it's not a cord issue. I'm just. Aghh. Frustrated.
Well, after getting the 5 large I have to say, getting used to these touch features is going to take some time.
It appears my natural pen resting position on my hand is too high up for the tablet (never had a problem on the 4) and it activates the touch features. Aka, gliding my hand across the tablet suddenly causes mass rotation or something.
Any settings I can adjust?
On a work surface Intuos5 Wacom Tablet Pen & Touch, there are scratches. Doesn't harm the functioning of the tablet ...?
I use a 160g paper over the surface , works still great and you dont get any scratches but depends on the paper nib can wear off faster
so my little over a year old medium intuos5 touch tablet has scratches on the surface. I was using an intuos4 mouse and a particle was caught in the felt on the underside of the mouse.
i contacted wacom support, and initially they seemed like there were going to replace it. The tech had me dig up my invoice (which was actually really time consuming) and email him some pictures. He never asked me how the scratches were incurred, only that if it was under warranty with proof of purchase they would replace the surface.
after sending off my email the tech contacted me and stated they would not cover the repair because the scratches were not from a nib (i never said they were, nor was i asked if they were). He offered a non-warranty replacement for $105.
IMO that is an outrageous cost for something that i was able to do by myself for under $20 on previous tablets. It seems to me Wacom is building in planned obsolescence into their tablets since every tablet will need it's surface replaced after enough use. I've also noticed that they are now cutting off support for their older tablets as their newest drivers have dropped support for the intuos and intuos2 tablets.
I've been using wacom products for over 20 years, and have purchased every intuos tablet version released as well as several cintiqs. In the past i could justify the high prices paid since their customer support was actually quite good. However my last 2 dealings with the support has been dismal. I think my 24HD may have been the last product i purchase from wacom. I was looking forward to the cintiq hybrid, but will now actively look for alternatives.
my message to potential intuos5 owners is to be aware of the policy regarding the overlay. it is not a user replaceable part, and costs $105 if out of warranty or they deem it not a manufacture defect. this substantially raises the cost of ownership of the tablet when you consider that eventually the surface will need to be replaced. who knows what they'll charge after they release the next version of the intuos tablet. who knows if they'll even be willing to perform the replacement. judging by my recent dealings with them i'm guessing they won't.
