Duel Monitor Cintiq Problem... pen affecting wrong monitor

OK, so I have XP64, 1 Cintiq monitor, 1 regular monitor (LCD)... When both monitors are on, and I move the pen over the cintiq monitor... the cursor moves on the OTHER monitor! As if it's treating tho other monitor as the cintiq! How did THIS happen?!

Solutions that failed:

Display Properties... I TRIED EVERYTHING! From switching Main monitor preferences, to Extending monitor.. The ONLY thing that worked was if I turn off my second monitor. Only then will the cintiq pen affect the cintiq monitor.. But I really want to work duel!

Ayudame!

    I had the same problem. When I set everything up, I made my regular monitor the primary monitor, and the Cintiq the secondary monitor. And, like you, my pen would control the cursor on my regular monitor, not my Cintiq.

    When I switched it so the Cintiq was the primary monitor, the pen worked on the Cintiq.

    I hope this is not required. I would really like my regular monitor to be my primary. Has anyone had success making the Cintiq their secondary monitor?

Under the calibrate tab in the wacom tablet properties window there is a drop down window with a list of monitors. Change that to the Cintiq

If I'm reading you right it sounds like a calibration problem. This also happens to me from time to time. I found that recalibrating the pen/tablet (via Wacom tablet properties in the Control Panel) resolves the issue.

Just happened to me too --- but the solution that worked for me is:

1 Open Wacom Tablet Properties
2 In the tool row, select "Grip Pen"
3 Open the "Calibrate" tab
4 Change monitor from whatever it is currently (prob. Cintiq) to the other option... THEN CHANGE IT BACK. The toggling of monitors in this tab seemed to kick the Cintiq to being the monitor that responded to pen input.

    I signed up for this site just because you literally stopped my panic attack I was having. I did everything else, including switching to ever monitro and nothing worked, but I never switched it right back to cintiq.

    I was ready to start breaking things. You saved my things sir. Tank you.

Hi all,

I'm having the same issue. No matter what settings I have (I've tried all of the above suggested), my pen affects my desktop display instead of my cintiq, and exclusively. It won't even track to the extended side that my cintiq is set for, even though the desktop shows up on it.

Help?

Right click on your desktop, choose 'Display'
Change 'Display' to your cintiq from the drop down.
Then turn on the checkbox for 'Make this my main display'.
It's happened to me twice and both times this has fixed it :)

Wacom cintiq 12wx calibration


I had a similar issue using the 12wx with a 15" MacbookPro Retina. Screen displayed the desktop way too much to the left. I found that the refresh rate of 59.8 hertz seemed to not be compatible despite it automatically being set. After changing this to 74.9 Hertz, the desktop is now properly centered on the Wacom screen and can be calibrated now. Not sure if this applies to Windows machines but perhaps something to keep in mind.

HI, I've had a similar problem. This solved it for me. Connect the cintiq first to a dvi to vga adapter, then connect that to apples vga to mini display port adapter.

worked for me so I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Hi...there Jenn!
Go to your toolbar bottom r/h side, look for VGA Display Icon. Open it and look for dual monitor setup. It's might be what you has been looking for... If not, read your cintiq user guide... Have a nice day!

Hi, having problems with my cintiq 12wx. It is only working as a tablet right now. Using my pen on the cintiq, and it just moves the cursor on my other monitor. I can't transfer anything from my monitor to...


Hey guys,
I have posted the solution to this problem (or my version of a solution) elsewhere on this site - but here it is again, just for you!

I had a similar problem with my cintiq 12WX!
The way i did it was by going into CONTROL PANEL (please note i am using XP windows), then into DISPLAY, then into the last tab on the right aka SETTINGS. Once in SETTINGS go into the ADVANCED section, then click on the DISPLAY tab. In here you should have 3 things - monitor, panel and tv. The tv bit is irrelevant. Look at the MONITOR and PANEL tabs, if your wacom IS set up correctly when you click on the button (it is a circle with a line inside it) on the title (it will either be greeny/turquoise or red). If it is red, click it and the same button on the panel title will turn green aswell. Below the pictures of a computer and a laptop there should be 2 buttons that are the same for each. Currently, my almost working cintiq is set to having the button with two squares on it under the heading of 'MONITOR' and the button with a circle is on under the section entitled PANEL.
If this doesn't work I dont know what to suggest.
Hope this helps.

I had the same problem with the "signal out of range" box in the middle of the screen. I went to Display on Control Panel and clicked the Settings tab. Click the monitor icon for the Wacom tablet in the window (if you are using more than one monitor) and set the screen resolutioin to 1280 by 800 pixels. The "signal out of range" box disappeared.
