Ok I have A wacom drawing tablet, and because of it i had to reinstall my computer. What had happened was I had kaked up and got the drivers for windows 95 installed them and ended up over righting some important stuff but alot still worked so it was a week befor i reinstalled everything, and now i have installed the proper drivers for it. Now befor hand when i had the wrong drivers I didnt have This

Absolute Positioning Traditional input devices like a standard PC mouse offer only relative positioning: When the mouse reaches the edge of the mouse pad, the on-screen cursor needn't be at the edge of your monitor screen as well. But WACOM tablets operate with absolute positioning: The entire active area of your tablet represents the entire monitor screen - place the pen in the lower left-hand corner of your tablet and the on-screen pointer will move to the lower left-hand corner of your monitor. WACOM tablets, however, offers relative positioning as well. Also, because of a very low frequency electromagnetic field under the active area of the tablet the pen doesn't need to be dragged like a mouse but hovers over the tablet surface. This means, the moment you touch the active area with your pen tip you're already performing a left mouse click.

And I dont bloody want it but there isnt a option to turn it off and it dosent say how to on there surrpot forum either. Is there any hope that somone can help?:confused: :bawl:

That's how all of the ones I've used work. I would suggest emailing their support department to see whether it can be turned off - I don't think there's much we can do.

Googled "Wacom absolute positioning override" and found this result: Pixarra Community > Tablet tracking issue in 10.2

TheEYE (Pixarra forums)I can verify I am running under absolute positioning mode. In Wacoms new driver setup that is what "pen mode" is. Whereas relative positioning is mouse mode. There have been a few occasions where the tracking has jumped back to normal for a few seconds before reverting back to its left skewed position. Ive verified that the stylus works correctly in Photoshop and Flash, but no matter what I try I cant get correct mapping in TB anymore. I even attempted to map the stylus screen to the canvas within TB only, and that didnt even help. I dunno Ken, balls in your court now! tongue.gif

Not sure if this applies, it is from last year, but can you choose modes? Is switching from the mentioned 'Pen' to 'Mouse' mode a possibility?
