Question about Wacom Graphire 4 "Silver" 4x5 (WMM132369)
I use my Wacom Graphire 4 tablet with Photoshop Elements 6.0 on a new MacBook, with OS X. The mouse works fine, but the pen is not working properly. The pen is always drawing even when I am not touching the tablet..... I would appreciate any advise because I am stuck. Thank you
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.

I have the same problem with my Graphire 3 and my brand new macbook. The tablet worked fine for 2 weeks, then started going "crazy".
I downloaded the latest driver from the Wacom site:
And it started working again.
Except the next day, when I came back it was back to crazy again. So I suspect it's a software problem, and not a hardware one.
But I figured a work around. I opened the tablet pen in System Preferences. Voila! The pen is recognised properly and works again! Maybe some smart tech dude and explain why...
But it works for the time being...

Its the nib that is causing the problem - did you replace it or take it out recently? try taking it out and making sure that when u replace it or put it back in that nothing (dirt, fluff, whatever) is obstructing the passage way that the nib fits into.
hope this helps
