smoke Mac tablet requirements?
on Jan 2, 2011 at 2:22:27 am

I am attempting to use a Wacom Intous 4 "Small" (approx 6" x 4") tablet with smoke Mac demo (SP3)
It seems the pen tracks fine, but "clicking" (pressing pen to tablet) is way off.
My Standard 6x8 "XD" tablet works fine.

In Preferences the default is set to "UD" and is not editable.
My Intous 4 Small model is "PTK"

I have never seen a smoke using anything other than a 6x8 tablet and wonder if Smoke for Mac provides for sizes other than that? Or is it hard written into the code to work ONLY with 6x8 tablets?
(which would be kind lame to be honest)

Are you in a dual monitor setup??

or...

"This can happen too with a single monitor.
Please do the following:
Go in /Applications/Wacom Tablet
Click on “Remove Wacom Tablet”
Under “Tablet Software”, click “remove”
Then go reinstall the Wacom Driver.

ha, wow, this sounds exactly like my problem, and also shines light on another problem I am having:

Although my Mac is running ONE monitor, it seems to "think" there are dual monitors. (I actually have to run an apple script to get smoke UI to get back to my screen, from some other "phantom" screen smoke is seeing)

This is seems to be a problem with my Mac however, not smoke.
I have tried monitor setup and all avenues in OSX system preferences.

vexing...

Another link in case it helps. uninstalling and reinstalling the wacom driver has helped others.
