Hurricane Florence Alert:
A rather large hurricane is set to hit the East Coast of the United States at the end of this week. Because of its size and threat to life & property there have already been significant evacuations in the areas expected to be hit worst. Hopefully things do not turn out as bad, but we will probably see shipping delays to and from that area (our North America distribution center is in Memphis, TN, close to the area).
If you are in the US region and you order something during this period, please see check for possible alerts.

Cintiq 21 UX, no "Grip pen" in the "tool" section, grip pen not working

Postby pierresantamaria » Sat 16. Sep 2017, 18:52


I have a really annoying bug that I can't fix and I desperatly need help.

here's my problem:
I had a power outage earlier this afternoon that forced my computer to reboot. and now, my grip pen is not recognized by my wacom cintiq 21 UX 2010. after a long search, I realised that my wacom properties panel does not dipslay the Grip pen icon in the Tools section As you can see in the image below:


Which meens I have no grip pen associated to it and I can't draw on the cintiq at all!! If, at least, there was a "+" on the right side, I might be able to add a Pen somehow but There's nothing. I'm stuck with a useless cintiq now ! I have searched online but can't find any answers that work. I already have unistalled and re-installed 2 different versions of the driver but nothing 's working.

Can someone please help me. I can't work without cintiq... :(

Unplug and replug the tablet USB cable, then reset the driver (under Wacom Desktop Center -> Backup Settings). The tablet should be detected again. Put the pentip or eraser on the tablet and the driver should automatically detect the Grip pen.
