Question about Wacom Intuos3 6x11

2 Answers

My cursor was smooth and easy to draw with, but now it's all shaky and won't draw well!

My cursor gets shaky and begins to make squiggle lines when I try to draw straight lines. It only happens when I'm trying to draw, and doesn't really seem to affect my normal 'mouse' functions. I have no idea what it could be since the tablet was working well at first... I tried changing the sensitivity of the pen tip and I disabled the buttons on the pen in case I was hitting them with my fingers or something, but still no luck. Whenever I try to draw with my pen it also clicks randomly and is now skipping as well. Help? Thanks!

    I too have this problem, it only affects the drawing side of the my tablet pen. I tried changing the nib but it still does it.

    I have been facing the same problem since yesterday. Its not a problem with the pen because the same pen works fine with my other Wacom tablet. I am facing this problem even when using it as a mouse function. It accidentally closes / minimizes windows, even if i hold the pen on a scroll bar the cursor keeps shaking. I even uninstalled the wacom driver/ software and installed the latest one but the problem still persists.

    I am having the problem also... I installed painter x on my vista x64 today and noticed that I couldn't right-click by holding the pen to the tablet like I always could before.

    I looked more closely and notice that the pen is constantly jittery and shaky.

The latest drivers have 2 modes...

1 open the driver control panel
2 at the top of the window double click the intuos3 tablet that is giving you problems
3 choose standard mode instead of recognition data

... this is at least what worked for me. I hope it helps.

Well... Pen mode seems to be the answer. Thinking about it, it was behaving like a good mouse should...

Several things may cause this: 1. Bad distributor cap. 2. loose connections on one or more spark plug wires. 3. Cracked coil. 4. Bad injector. 5. Cracked spark plug.
So did you recently pressure wash your engine? It is possible if you did that the cold water may have cracked a spark plug ceramic.
So this is a start. A place for you to begin to look.

What says home or end keys

it is primarily used to return the cursor to the beginning of the line where the cursor is located. When the text is not editable, the home key is used to return to the beginning of the document; this can also be done in editable text if the key is pressed along with control.
The home key can also be used to highlight all the characters before the cursor in a certain line if pressed along with shift in editable text.

The home key will take you to the beginning of the line you are on - try it, type a bunch of stuff then hit the Home key and you will be brought to the beginning of the line. If you are in a multi-line document, hitting CTRL+Home will bring you to the start of the entire document.

Similarly, the end key will take you to the end of the line while CTRL+end will take you to the end of the document

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day
