The drawing surfce is not glued down and should never be glued down. It is replaceable...

It is basically held on the tablet by an adhesive strip (Double Sided Tape) along it's top edge. I was a little worried too, when after spending some time in Photoshop, it lifted away as if stuck to my wrist.

This is not a fault and it will just lay back in it's recess, no harm done.

NEVER EVER glue it down, or when it comes time to replace it, you will not be able too. If it is peeling up and not laying flat, buy a replacement.

Where can i get a wacom bamboo tablet?


You can buy them new from places like Amazon or directly from Wacom. Just to confuse you more-- it used to be Bamboo, Intuos, and Cintiq. Now the entry level tablets are the Intuos, the mid-level has become the Intuos Pro, and then the Cintiq.

Illustrator CS5 does not recognize my graphic pen, wether with the Wacom tablet or my new Monoprice tablet. It draws a yellow sticky note kind of thing, it is annoying and I can't find a solution,


I too have a tablet not made by Wacom. For some reason, Illustrator only opens the tablet-sensitive definitions for Wacom. The solution I found: Go to the Wacom site, install the latest intuos driver. You won't be using it, but it will trick Illustrator into thinking there's a Wacom installed, the definitions will be active for your pen. Mine seems to work fine now.

Wacom Intuos 3 problems


Hi Bengref
Just talked to WACOM USA about a similar (but not exactly the same) problem with my Intuos 3. One of their procedures was;

go to the ALL Programs directory,

go to the the WACOM TABLET directory

open the WACOM Tablet Properties window

click on the "About" button

while holding down the CTRL key, click on the "Diagnose" button

click on the "recalibrate" button

Another procedure

go to the All Programs Directory

go to the WACOM Tablet Directory

click on the :WACOM Table Preference File Utility"

Under "My Preferences" click on remove


Good Luck

BobS

My Bluetooth tablet does that occationally. Perhaps there is a wireless signal inturptig the wacom signal. I find cycling the tablet off then on will fix this. A bit annoying but the only solution I have found so far.
