Question about Wacom Cintiq 12WX Interactive Pen Display Monitor
I can't seem to get my cintiq to act as a dual monitor. It only responds as a tablet for my primary monitor. I can't find any solutions online.
I had the same issue and it took me a couple of hours to find the solution, until I stumble upon this blog:
I have a Macbook Pro and use the DVI Cable. Here is this the solution:
"First, you need to change the tablet's focus from the Cintiq screen to the main desktop screen. This is easy to do, just open System Preferences>Wacom Tablet. Make sure you have highlighted the "Cintiq 12wx" on the "Tablet" window across the top part of the preference window, and then click on "Calibration". Change "Monitor" from "Cintiq (2)" to whatever your main display (1) is. What will happen now is that the Cintiq will act like a regular Wacom tablet and moving around on it will move the cursor on your main screen. Do not panic, this is expected. Now open System Preferences>Displays. You will see a window pop up on both monitors. The main one will be a little different, as it will have "Arrangement" and "Options" as choices not on the other box. Click "Arrangement" and drag the white menu bar from the left display square to the top of the right one. A red border appears on the display that is actively selected as the main desktop as you do this.
The result will be that now your menu bar and dock will be on your Cintiq, and the pen will again function correctly on the screen. Hide the dock if it's in your way. Again, this is a personal preference on may part and does not affect the functions of the Cintiq in any way."
Hope it helps!

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!
