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.

intous pro click instead dragging

Postby mefrankyt » Mon 7. Aug 2017, 19:23


I am using the new Wacom intous pro tablet.
I don't use it for painting but as a mouse alternative. And I am very happy about it.

But When want to click something on the screen (touching board with pen) I often have the problem that I don't click but drag it a little bit.

Is there a solution for me to optimize that? Perhaps something in the preferences that it will be easier to click than to drag by mistake?

Thanks for your advices.

I have the same problem. Always had this problem when using tablets.

I think it's because you _actually_ drag the cursor a little bit while clicking. Which is very easy as the smallest movement can move your cursor a few pixels.

As a workaround, for very precise clicks that aren't registered as click I use my trackpad button to click.

One of the biggest annoyances when using at tablet.

Of course it would be great if Wacom would build something like a 'Start dragging'-threshold into their drivers. That would freeze the cursor a few pixels to make sure you register a click in a fixed position. Actual dragging would then only start if you move the cursor more than X amount of pixels.

Try experimenting with the Pen settings "Tip Double Click Distance" and "Tip Feel". After I changed them to "Off" and "Soft" it feels much better. Could be a different problem, though...
