Question about Wacom Graphire4 4x5

1 Answer

Pen acts weirdly

I can just hover it over the tablet and it selects text on the screen. If I try clicking something on my desktop it doesn't work, either. Instead it seems to be selecting a rectangle that changes size if I move the pen. I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, but I can get it to function properly. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Firstly check that the Pen Tablet options in the Wacom control panel are set to "Pen Mode" it may be a good idea to set the pen back to default. This is shown in the attached picture. Secondly the tablet preferences file may be corrupt. Use the following procedure: Do a Search or Find for the TABLET.DAT file and delete it. The file should be in your Windows\System or Windows\System32 folder. Then restart your computer. When the tablet driver loads it will create a new preferences file with the factory default settings. Lastly perform the tablet test procedure as per page 35 of the manual (link below). http://www.wacom-europe.com/int/downloads/brochures/manuals.asp?lang=en Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Why won't my wacom grip pen click when it touches the tablet instead of hovering and selecting text?


Have you tried pulling the nib out (the end bit you draw with)? It could be that something is sticking the nib further inside the pen than it should, which is telling the pen you are applying pressure. As far as I know there is a little spring inside the pen that the nib pushes on when you touch the pen to the tablet. Perhaps the spring is permanently squished in.

My Genius Easypen i405X tablet keeps clicking when I hover with pen


Hello :) we have the same problem regarding the same brand and product. But I got mine working just a while ago.
Try this: Control Panel>Pen and Touch
under pen options, there should be settings regarding the pen buttons. Unclick the "use the pen button as a right-click equivalent"
hope this helps though although it's been a year XD

My Genius Easypen i405X tablet keeps clicking when I hover with pen.


Since you got this just a few days ago, you should take it back to where you got it and talk to them about what is going on. There is a warranty and you don't want to void that!

When I'm using Photoshop CS4 with my Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet, the screen tracking for the tablet only works for half the tablet. This happens with everything else as well, not just Photoshop...


Go to Control Panel, and open bamboo properties. There you select the "pen" tab. In the pen tab you will see tracking. Select pen mode and details. You can map the pad there. After mapping pen mode try it in mouse mode as well. Best of luck!

My pen writes even if it's hovering over the board. =[


I had this same problem. I found my solution on here, but i don't know if it will work for you. Take the pen and hit the head of the pen into your hand 5 times (pretty hard i hurt my hand while doing it but not too hard) and then do the same with the eraser. It worked fine for me afterwords. Something about humid weather and the sticking of the pressure thing in the pen. I hope this helps

My Tablet pen wont release, it acts like im clicking and holding


I'm just gonna pass on a email from Tech Support I recieved. 

"It sounds as though your pen has pressure in proximity. This is present when the tip sensor of your pen is stuck down causing the pen to think that it’s clicking before it’s even touching anything. What you may want to try would be to remove the nib from the tip end of the pen, it pulls straight out with a pair or tweezers or your teeth, and leave that out overnight with the pen left on its side. Place the nib back in the morning and if the issue persists then you may have a defective pen tip."

The rest consists of personal info and warranty advice so I'll leave it there.

The tablet is not a touch-resistive tablet. It's actually using magnets to detect the pen (you can't really use other pens with it). It will always detect it when you hover because that's how it works.

Before you start Photoshop press and hold the shift key and wait until photoshop has loaded.

Why does my tablet suddenly start to randomly click and drag?


Sometimes the tablet (especially ones with buttons at the top such as Cut, Copy, Paste etc) reacts to pressure and not the tablet itself. Make sure theres nothing over them, that might help.
