Using dual monitors

When using my tablet in Photoshop, my mouse cursor can switch between monitors as expected, but for some reason when using the pen, it won't,,it's as if it stops at the border in monitor one,,any idea?

That is usually how graphics tablets are set, sometimes they have function buttons that you can use to toggle between screens in a multi screen setup (remember that graphics tablets are not the same as touchpad.....

it is also possible to set your screens up as one desktop... this with a recallibration of your tablet could give you access to the whole screen area.

    sorry....i forgot to say why this happens..... a mouse works by working out your position in relation to your previous position... whereas a tablet measures your distance from the top left corner, this position is fixed as the top corner of your monitor when you calibrate. so you canot move outside this boundary....

    some tablets let you use "mouse mode" which uses relative positioning

    Ahh Hello. I was wandering if there was a reverse way! I wish to have my tablet only go to one of my screens and not both!

My pen for my bamboo tablet is placing the cursor one place on the tablet and and another place on he pc,what can i do to fix this?


Hello,

Go to Control Panel and access the settings for the tablet: you can choose one of 2 mapping settings for the cursor:

1. Pen Mode: this is only to be chosen if the aspect ratio of the tablet matches your monitor aspect ratio (4:3 or 16:9 or 16:10) and only if the size of the tablet is comfortable enough
2. Mouse mode: the pen behaves exactly like a mouse

Please check these settings and choose the one that suites best.
Feel free to contact if you have additional questions

Regards,
Katharsys

Cursor restricted to top left area using graphics tablet


It's the windows 7 tablet feature that causes the problem. To solve it you have to disable it. Go to start -> search write "services.msc" (without the strokes) and hit enter. Now search for "Tablet PC Input Service" double click on it and when a little window pops up set Disabled under startup type list box. Now if you want to see effect immediately there is a button Stop, click on it, and wait until service is stopped. When done close both windows. This way you don't have to even restart your pc.

My Wacom Intuos3 tablet won't switch into pen mode


The winning answer came courtesy of Mr Benedikt Schmitt of Wacom Europe, who offered the following solution: from the Windows Device Manager, disable the “Wacom Virtual Hid Driver” device. (Go to Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager, find the driver, right-click it and choose “Disable”.) One reboot later (welcome to Windows-land, circa 2008?), everything works as desired. Pressure and tilt sensitivity inside Photoshop still work, and the pen functions just fine in the rest of the Windows desktop. The absolute mapping makes it an absolute pleasure to point quickly and precisely. It makes my laser mouse feel rather clumsy navigating a large 24′ screen!

Skipping and Shaking cursor


There is a problem with the compatability of your tablet and your monitor. You either have to change your monitor to a different refresh rate or simply move your tablet abit further way from your monitor. If possible, you could change your tablet to "single mode" (depending on your tablet).
