May I ask for help please with the yellow pad thing that is there permanently now? Drives me crazy that every time I try to draw with it now, this annoying yellow notepad comes flying out and I can't use the pen.
There is a program called Ink - you'll find it in your system preferences under the apple menu. You need to turn it off. This will allow you to use your wacom without that annoying yellow notepad everywhere!!

I too have a tablet not made by Wacom. For some reason, Illustrator only opens the tablet-sensitive definitions for Wacom. The solution I found: Go to the Wacom site, install the latest intuos driver. You won't be using it, but it will trick Illustrator into thinking there's a Wacom installed, the definitions will be active for your pen. Mine seems to work fine now.
Draw a line and check meanwhile whether or not the blue indicator light keeps burning on the top left of your tablet. If not, there's a bad contact between your pen and the tablet, probably due to a malfunctioning connection between the battery and the electronics of your pen. If so, ask for a new pen on the Trust company website.
Ok so I called costumer service because mine was doing the same thing. Apparently the pressure sensor in the pen is stuck down. What you do is remove the pen tip with tweezers, blow in the open end of pen, then tap the pen (open end down) in a table to get any debris out of there. Then just put the tip back in and give it a try. That did the trick for me. Hope this helps.
I had the same problem, and my fix was really simple. Did you make sure that your mouse and pen aren't on the tablet at the same time? I took my mouse off the tablet, the pen immediately stopped jumping around.
Ok i did a search for this problem and ended up on this forum My diagnose of the problem was that the pen was not detected by the drawing pad , so something was wrong with the pen After studying the pen i found a little hole where the wire is where u screw the cap on the back Pushing in the hole with a little screwdriver made the circuit board come lose Then i found out i had to use a little screwdriver to pull out the long button before the whole circuit board would come out of the pen I found out that one of the tiny wires from the pressure coil was loose I soldered it back on and tested it ,still out of the hull ,but holding a battery in it and touching the drawing pad And it worked again !! (cheer) I think that due to some movement of the coil and/or circuit board inside the hull ,one or maybe even both of the wires come loose and that makes the pen not function anymore
Just to be sure i put a dot of extra solder on both wires because the amouth of soldering tin was barely visible
If your handy you can try to open the pen like i did and check if both wires are still connected to the circuit board If not , with a bit solder u can fix it and get it working again
Hope my experience helps others to fix this nice drawing pad
My wife was very sad as she found out it stopped working and a new battery didn't fix it Since i gave it to her for her birthday i was upset too and very motivated to find the problem As ham radio operator i have plenty of soldering and trouble shooting experience
I have experienced the same problems in the aforementioned cases about the pen randomly highlighting things on the desktop/making selections, as well as loss of double tapping feature for double clicking. For my situation, I am pleased to say that I've managed to resolve the problem it may or may not help but worth a try. The solution: (1) go to control panel and open up the 'Pen Tablet' icon, (2) under 'Tracking' select 'Pen Mode' and click on 'Details' tab, (3) under 'Screen Area' select 'Monitor' (*IMPORTANT*) (* other settings I have are: 'unchecked' force proportions, 'Tablet Area' set to 'full', number of monitors under 'Screen Area' set to 1) Following the above steps should remedy the problem. It worked for me. I hope it proves useful to you as well.
