Wacom Intuos BT: Delay before effective connection

Postby gregseth » Wed 12. Aug 2020, 09:35

I'm using the Wacom Intuos BT S in Bluetooth. When I'm pressing the power on button the tablet connects to my computer (I see the connected message on my screen) but I have to wait about 1 minute before the pen is actually working.

The Wacom Desktop center tells me that everything is up to date. My system is macOS Catalina 10.15.6.

What can I do ?

Give this a try:
Other from that, this seems to be an OS related issue. I suggest you check in the Apple forums.
