INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW
Wacom® Cintiq®
The
20WSX pen display combines the benefits of an LCD monitor with the control,
comfort, and productivity of Wacom’s cordless, battery-free pen technology. This gives you a direct
pen-on-screen interface that can be used with a Personal Computer (PC) or Macintosh® computer.
Cintiq’s basic components include a Wacom pen tablet internally mounted behind a 20.1" wide format
TFT color LCD monitor, and Wacom’s Grip Pen.
Cintiq comes with a modular display stand, which allows you to easily rotate the pen display to any
orientation, and to adjust the incline of the working surface to any angle between 10 and 65 degrees.
Refer to Unpacking your Cintiq on page 7 before setting up the Cintiq stand or unpacking the Cintiq pen
display. Please follow all instructions carefully.
This manual describes how to install the Cintiq hardware and software. It also describes how to use
Cintiq, the Grip Pen, and the modular display stand. The information is common to Windows and
Macintosh computers, and Windows screen captures are shown unless otherwise noted.
Note that the computer treats the Cintiq pen display as two separate devices (the LCD monitor
and the pen tablet). Therefore, the installation process is completed in two stages:
• First install the Cintiq as a display.
• Then install the Cintiq as a pen tablet.
Both stages require hardware and software installations and adjustments. Please follow all
instructions carefully.
IMPORTANT: You MUST install the Wacom pen tablet driver software for full pen and tablet
functionality, otherwise the Cintiq pen will only function as a mouse device and the extended
pen and tablet features will not be available.
The following kinds of information are not included with this product: information about your specific
computer hardware or operating system, or information about your application software. Your best
source for this information is the set of manuals and disks that came with your hardware, operating
system, or application.
For information on using the Wacom Tablet control panel to customize your pen display tablet and pen
settings, refer to Customizing on page 32 and to the electronic Software User’s Manual. See also
Learning more about Cintiq on page 35.
To use the pressure-sensitivity of the Grip Pen with your favorite drawing application, refer to
instructions in that application’s manuals.

Environment
Temperature and Humidity
•
Operating temperature and humidity: 5˚ to 35˚C, 20 to 80% RH
•
Storage temperature and humidity: -10˚ to 60˚C, 20 to 90% RH
CAUTION
Do not use or store Cintiq where:
•
Temperature changes are severe or exceed specifications (e.g., outdoors or inside
a vehicle).
•
The pen display, the Grip Pen, and the Cintiq stand are exposed to direct sunlight or heat
from an appliance, or are exposed to water or any other kind of liquid.
CAUTION
Do not use Cintiq in a dusty environment; this may damage the unit.
Usage
WARNING
Only use the power adapter that came with Cintiq. If a different type of power adapter is
used, Cintiq will not work properly or may be damaged. Using a different type of power
adapter also has the potential to result in fire. Use of a different power adapter will void
your warranty.
CAUTION
Be sure to use a grounded power source when applying power to Cintiq.
CAUTION
Do not connect or disconnect the video or power cables while Cintiq or your computer
are turned on; this may damage the LCD monitor or computer video card. In this case,
Wacom shall have no responsibility to repair or replace the product.
CAUTION
This product is for use with a DVI or VGA video card; using an inappropriate video card
may damage Cintiq.
CAUTION

Handling
WARNING
High Voltage. Do not open or disassemble the Cintiq pen display. There is a risk of
electrical shock when the casing is open. This will also void your warranty and Wacom
shall have no responsibility to repair or replace the product.
WARNING
Do not operate the display stand incline adjustment levers when Cintiq is not mounted
on the stand, and do not lift the stand by the adjustment levers; the stand is springloaded and may cause injury or damage if released without the weight of Cintiq on the stand.
Improper operation may lead to physical injury or damage to the stand.
WARNING
When moving Cintiq to a different location, either remove the display unit from the
stand (see page 12 for details) and then move both items separately, use the lock
screws to fix Cintiq to the stand (see page 56 for details), or hold onto both Cintiq and
the stand to make sure that the stand does not separate from the display unit when
moving them together.
Before moving Cintiq, first adjust the stand to its full upright position; this will reduce the
spring tension so that the stand will not accidentally release and snap shut. If the display unit
is in landscape orientation, use one hand to grasp the bottom of the display and with your
other hand grasp the back of the stand. Be sure to lift on both the display and the stand so
that the stand will not separate from the display when moving Cintiq.
If Cintiq is in portrait orientation or has been locked to the stand with the rotation lock screws
(see page 56), the stand will not separate from the display unit and Cintiq can be safely lifted
by grasping the display unit with both hands.
Always follow the instructions on page 12 to remove the display unit from the stand.
WARNING
If the LCD screen has been damaged, DO NOT touch any liquid that may be leaking
from it; this liquid is an irritant. In case of contact with skin, eyes, or mouth, rinse
immediately with running water for at least 15 minutes or more. If contact is made with the
eyes or mouth, also consult a physician.
WARNING
Hg
– LAMP(S) INSIDE THIS PRODUCT CONTAIN MERCURY AND MUST BE
RECYCLED OR DISPOSED OF ACCORDING TO LOCAL, STATE OR FEDERAL
LAWS.
The Cintiq pen display has a backlight which contains mercury (Hg).
Be sure to dispose of properly, and to manage any disposal of this unit in accordance with
your local ordinances and laws.
WARNING

or damage to the stand. In this case, Wacom shall have no responsibility to repair or replace
the product.
WARNING
Prevent children from swallowing the pen tip or side switch. The pen tip or side switch
may accidentally be pulled out if children are biting on them.
CAUTION
Do not disassemble the Grip Pen. This may cause the device to malfunction. In this case,
Wacom shall have no responsibility to repair or replace the product.
CAUTION
Do not scratch the display screen. Avoid placing sharp objects on the display screen
surface.
CAUTION

Cintiq20WSX_Manual.fm Page 8 Monday, January 15, 2007 9:23 AM
Setting up the Cintiq stand
Place the stand on your desktop or work surface, making sure the stand is stable and will not tip or fall
when the pen display is mounted on it. Then familiarize yourself with the stand components.
WARNING Do not operate the incline adjustment levers when Cintiq is not mounted on the stand, and do not
lift the stand by the adjustment levers; the stand is spring-loaded and may cause injury or damage
if released without the weight of Cintiq on the stand. Improper operation may lead to physical
injury or damage to the stand. Be careful to avoid catching your finger in the gap of the movable
portion of the stand.
Incline adjustment levers
When Cintiq is mounted on the stand, use these levers to adjust the
display incline, as described in Adjusting the display incline on page 10.
Bearing recess
Front feet
The front feet have rubber
pads to reduce stand
slippage on the desktop
when adjusting incline.
Rear feet
The rear feet are on
rollers, allowing the
feet to move when
adjusting incline.
Next step: Unpack the pen display and mount it on the Cintiq stand. See page 9.

Cintiq20WSX_Manual.fm Page 9 Monday, January 15, 2007 9:23 AM
Unpacking and mounting the Cintiq pen display
Remove any packing materials from the back of the display unit and cabling.
To mount Cintiq on the stand:
• Make sure the stand is stable on your desktop or other work surface and will not tip or fall when
Cintiq is mounted on it.
• Securely grasp Cintiq with both hands so that the display faces toward you, with the power switch
and LEDs located at the top.
• Align Cintiq parallel to the front of the stand so that the bearing hub is located between the
V-shaped upper edges of the stand’s bearing recess. See – A – (The V-shaped edges of the
stand will serve as a guide for positioning the bearing hub.)
• With the back of Cintiq resting against the stand, lower Cintiq until the bearing hub rests securely in
the bearing recess of the stand. See – B – on the next page. The display unit will be held in place
by gravity; there will be no audible ‘snap’ that indicates a mechanical lock.
Note: If you do not need to rotate the Cintiq pen display, you may want to secure it to the stand with
the rotation lock screws. For information on this, see Optional display configurations on page 56.
To learn about other mounting options, see Using an alternate mount or stand on page 57.

Cintiq20WSX_Manual.fm Page 10 Monday, January 15, 2007 9:23 AM
WARNING When operating the incline adjustment
levers, Cintiq must be mounted on the
stand with the stand feet resting on a
stable, flat surface. The stand is
spring-loaded and can snap back
quickly, causing injury or damage if
not operated properly.
–B–
After the display unit has been mounted on the
stand, remove the foam blocks that lock the
adjustment levers in place. Save these blocks
with the other packaging materials; you will
need them if in the future you want to ship
Cintiq.
Adjusting the display incline
To adjust the display incline, face the front of the Cintiq pen display and grasp it on the left and right side
at approximately the same height as the Cintiq stand adjustment levers. Use your fingertips to gently
pull the incline adjustment levers toward the display unit; this will release the stand’s clutch mechanism.
Tilt the display to adjust the incline setting.
• To lower Cintiq, pull the left incline adjustment lever toward Cintiq and gently lower Cintiq to the
desired incline angle. Release the lever to lock the stand in place.
• To raise Cintiq, pull the right incline adjustment lever toward Cintiq and gently raise Cintiq to the
desired incline angle. Release the lever to lock the stand in place.
Note: The stand adjustment levers exhibit some natural play before the clutch mechanism
engages. When adjusting the stand incline, set it slightly higher than you plan to work with, then
lower the display to the desired position.
WARNING Before moving Cintiq, first adjust the stand to its full upright position; this will reduce the spring
tension so that the stand will not accidentally release and snap shut. If the display unit is in
landscape orientation, use one hand to grasp the bottom of the display and with your other
hand grasp the back of the stand. Be sure to lift on both the display and the stand so that the
stand will not separate from the display when moving Cintiq. If Cintiq is in portrait orientation or
has been locked to the stand with the rotation lock screws (see page 56), the stand will not
separate from the display unit and Cintiq can be safely lifted by grasping the display unit with
both hands.
Unpacking your Cintiq
Page 10
Cintiq20WSX_Manual.fm Page 11 Monday, January 15, 2007 9:23 AM
Adjusting rotation
The pen display can be rotated on the display stand when the incline is less than or equal to 25
degrees.
To adjust rotation, grasp Cintiq by the main body and rotate the unit to the desired position; it will move
on the bearing hub. You can only rotate the display unit 180 degrees in either direction. If you do not
plan to rotate the Cintiq, use the rotation lock screws to fasten the display to the stand in a horizontal
position. See Optional display configurations on page 56 for more information.
Using the pen holder
The integrated pen holder is located at the back of the pen display tablet.
Note: The pen holder is not available for use when routing the cable to exit through the top cable
opening.
Next step: Go to page 13 and familiarize yourself with the pen display.
Unpacking your Cintiq
Page 11
Cintiq20WSX_Manual.fm Page 12 Monday, January 15, 2007 9:23 AM
Removing Cintiq from the display stand
To remove Cintiq from the display stand:
• If the rotation lock screws are attached, remove them from the back of Cintiq.
• Position the pen display to landscape orientation before removing it from the display stand.
The stand will not release unless Cintiq is in landscape orientation.
• Next, raise the stand incline to the highest position. See Adjusting the display incline on page 10
for instructions.
• Firmly grasp the pen display on both the left and right sides of the body, and lift the unit out of the
display stand.
Important: When removing Cintiq from the display stand, always lift Cintiq in a direction
parallel to the front of the stand. You may also need to rotate Cintiq slightly so the stand will
release.
Note: When packing Cintiq for transport, first adjust the stand to its lowest position and place the
foam packing blocks under the incline adjustment levers before removing Cintiq from the stand.
The foam blocks will keep the stand from snapping shut while in its packaging. Always pack Cintiq
and its stand in their original containers and protective cushions. Never pack Cintiq while it is
mounted on the stand; this may damage the unit or stand during transportation.

INSTALLATION
System requirements
Before installing Cintiq, make sure your computer meets the following minimum system requirements:
• PC. Windows Vista™, Vista x64, XP, XP x64, or 2000. DVI or VGA video connector, available USB
port, and CD-ROM drive.
• Macintosh. OS X, v10.3.9 or greater. DVI or VGA video connector, available USB port, and
CD-ROM drive. ADC connectors require an ADC to DVI-I adapter, not included. (ADC to DVI-I
adapters can be purchased at various retail outlets.)
Cintiq supports both digital (DVI) and analog (VGA) video signals. If you are updating your video card,
complete the video card hardware and software installation before connecting Cintiq. If you have
another display that is compatible with your video card, you can connect that display to the card in order
to verify the video card is operating correctly.
Note: Cintiq can be used alone or with another display, such as a CRT monitor or LCD projector.
To use Cintiq with another display, you will need two video cards or a video card with dual output.
Depending on the capabilities of your video card and operating system, you may be able to set up
Cintiq as a mirrored, extended, or independent display. Refer to your video card documentation for
more information on its capabilities.
When you are working with more than one monitor, Cintiq will map to the monitors based upon how
your system is configured. By default, if you are in mirror mode, the pen tablet will map to the entire
space on each display or monitor. Please refer to your hardware and operating system
documentation for details on configuring your computer and operating system for use with multiple
monitors.
A display toggle function is available for use with multiple monitor systems. This enables you to
toggle the screen cursor between the Cintiq pen display and your other displays. See Using the
ExpressKeys on page 26 for more information.
By using the VGA to DVI-I adapter, you can connect Cintiq to a VGA video card. However, connecting
Cintiq to a DVI video card generally results in optimum performance because a digital video signal will
display a better image and sharper text.
There are two primary steps to the installation process:
• Step 1: LCD monitor installation
• Step 2: Pen tablet installation
Be sure to follow ALL installation instructions carefully.

For troubleshooting tips, please refer to page 41.
Notes:
Each Cintiq LCD panel is produced under very stringent quality standards. Production techniques
cannot guarantee an absolutely perfect TFT display, and some panels may exhibit a certain number
of pixels that show an incorrect color. Refer to the specifications on page 62 for more information.
If an image has fine striping (such as screen stripes), it may appear to flicker or display a moiré
pattern.
Do not apply excessive pressure on the display surface, it may cause the appearance of a moiré or
pooling pattern. If you notice this action, use less pressure on the display screen when working
with the pen.
When a still image is displayed for a long period of time, an after-image may remain for a short time.
To prevent this, Wacom recommends using a screen saver or other power management feature.
Important: To extend the life of the backlight, set your computer’s power management to turn
off the display when it is not in use for an extended period of time.

Software installation
IMPORTANT: You MUST install the Wacom pen tablet driver software for full pen and tablet
functionality, otherwise the Cintiq pen will only function as a mouse device and the extended
pen and tablet features will not be available.
To install the tablet software:
• Save your work and close all open applications before installing the tablet software.
Temporarily disable any virus protection programs.
• Insert the Wacom Pen Tablet Driver CD into your computer’s CD-ROM drive. If the software
installer menu does not automatically display, double-click on the INSTALL icon located on the CD.
• Click on the INSTALL TABLET link and follow the prompts to install the driver software.
• Reactivate your virus protection program.
• After the software installation has been completed, make sure you can use your pen on the Cintiq
display to move the screen cursor.
When you place the pen tip on the display screen, the screen cursor should immediately jump to a
corresponding position approximately beneath the pen tip. Lift the pen tip and place it on the
display screen surface in a different location – the screen cursor should again jump to the new
position. This is known as absolute positioning, and enables you to position the screen cursor
without having to drag your pen across the display screen surface. To fine-tune the cursor-to-pen
relationship, see Calibrating Cintiq on page 34.
Be sure to check the Read Me file for late-breaking news. If you have trouble installing Cintiq, see the
Troubleshooting section beginning on page 41 of this manual.
Notes:
• For Windows Vista, driver installation automatically activates the new pen input functions
available within Windows Vista and Office 2007 (except for Windows Vista Home Basic).
• For Windows Vista and XP, user-specific preferences are supported. After logging in, each
user can customize their personal settings in the Wacom Tablet control panel. Switching to
another user will automatically load the settings for that user.
• The Windows Vista log-in screen does not support screen cursor movement with the pen tablet.
Use the arrow keys or a standard mouse to select the user name for logging in.
Next steps:
Be sure to adjust the pen display tablet calibration to precisely align the screen cursor position with
the location of the pen tip. See Calibrating Cintiq on page 34.

WORKING WITH YOUR CINTIQ
Using the pen
As you work with Cintiq, you can rest your hand lightly on the display screen, just as if it were a drawing
board or sheet of paper. The Grip Pen is cordless, battery-free, and sensitive to the tilt and pressure
you exert upon it. Hold the Grip Pen as you would a normal pen or pencil. Make sure the DuoSwitch is
in a convenient location where you can toggle it with your thumb or forefinger, but not accidentally press
it while drawing. You can tilt the pen in any way that feels most comfortable for drawing.
Eraser
DuoSwitch
(side switch)
Note: When the Grip
Pen is not in use, place
it in the pen stand, the
pen holder, or lay it flat
on your desk.
To maintain the
sensitivity of your pen,
do not store the pen in
a container where it
will rest on its tip or
eraser.
Tip Switch
(replaceable nib)
Pen components
The components of your Cintiq Grip Pen function in the following manner:
Pen tip: The pen becomes activated as soon as it is brought within 5 mm (0.2 inch) of the pen display
screen. This allows you to position the screen cursor or use the DuoSwitch without touching the pen tip
to the display screen. When pressure is applied to the pen tip, the tip switch is turned on and the pen
simulates a primary mouse button click. The tip click pressure can be adjusted in the Wacom Tablet
control panel. By default, the tip function is set to CLICK.
DuoSwitch: The DuoSwitch is programmable, and can be used to perform the same click and doubleclick functions as the tip switch. Toggle the DuoSwitch in either direction to activate the upper or lower
button functions. You can use the DuoSwitch whenever the pen tip is within 5 mm (0.2 inch) of the
tablet surface; you do not need to touch the pen tip to the tablet in order to use the switch. By default,
the upper switch is set to DOUBLE CLICK and the lower switch is set to RIGHT CLICK.
Eraser: When the eraser is brought within 5 mm (0.2 inch) of the display the tablet reports the pen
location. Pressure information is reported as you press down on the eraser. By default, the eraser
function is set to ERASE.
Important: Only use a pen that is compatible with Cintiq, such as the pen that shipped with the
unit, or any of the pens from the Intuos3 product line (see Accessories on page 64).
Other pens may not function properly. Also, the Cintiq pen tip is specifically designed for use
with the Cintiq pen display – the tips on other pens could damage the protective coating on the
Cintiq display screen.
Refer to Customizing on page 32 and to the electronic Software User’s Manual for information on
customizing the pen settings.

Pen operations
The basic methods of working with the pen are as follows:
Pointing and selecting: Move the Grip Pen above the Cintiq display screen to position the screen
cursor. The pen tip needs to be within 5 mm (0.2 inch) of the pen display tablet surface; you do not
need to touch the tablet surface to move the screen cursor. The cursor jumps to the location where you
place the pen (absolute positioning). Press the pen tip on the display screen to make a selection.
Note: You will need to calibrate the pen display tablet to correctly align the screen cursor with
the pen tip. (See Calibrating Cintiq on page 34.) If the screen cursor does not jump to a
position close to the pen tip when you place the pen on the display screen, then the pen tablet
driver may not be installed or is not loading. Install the pen tablet driver software if necessary.
Otherwise, refer to Troubleshooting, beginning on page 41.
Clicking: Tap the display screen once with the pen tip, or touch the pen to the display screen with
enough pressure to register a click.
Windows tip: You can make navigating with the pen easier by configuring Windows to select
when the pen is over an icon and to launch the icon with a single click. To turn on this feature
first open a folder.
For Windows Vista, from the ORGANIZE pull-down menu choose FOLDER AND SEARCH
OPTIONS.... From the GENERAL tab select SINGLE-CLICK TO OPEN AN ITEM (POINT TO SELECT).
For other Windows versions, from the TOOLS pull-down menu choose FOLDER OPTIONS....
From the GENERAL tab select SINGLE-CLICK TO OPEN AN ITEM (POINT TO SELECT).
Double-clicking: Press the upper side switch, or quickly tap the display screen twice in the same place
with the pen tip. Double-clicking is easier when the pen is perpendicular to the tablet screen. Refer to
the electronic Software User’s Manual for information on fine-tuning the double-click area.
Dragging: Select an object, then slide the pen tip across the display screen to move the object.
Using the side switch: The pen is equipped with a DuoSwitch. This switch has two programmable
functions that can be selected by rocking the switch in either direction. You can use the DuoSwitch
whenever the pen tip is within 5 mm (0.2 inch) of the tablet surface; you do not need to touch the pen tip
to the tablet in order to use the switch. The upper switch is set to DOUBLE CLICK, and the lower switch is
set to RIGHT CLICK by default.
Drawing with pressure-sensitivity: The pen responds to the nuance and inflection of your hand
movements, enabling you to create natural-looking pen and brush strokes within applications that
support this feature. To draw with pressure, select a pressure-sensitive tool from your application’s tool
palette. As you draw on the screen surface, use various amounts of downward pressure on the tip of
the pen. Press lightly for thin lines or softer color. Press harder for thick lines or dense color.
Drawing with tilt: As with pressure-sensitivity, the pen display tablet recognizes when you tilt the pen
from vertical to incline positions. In supporting applications, tilt can be used to control line shape and
thickness.
Erasing: In supporting applications, the pen’s eraser works like the eraser on a pencil. In text
applications, use the eraser to select text, then lift the eraser from the tablet to delete the text.

Working with the tablet controls
The customizable ExpressKeys and Touch Strips enable you to speed up your workflow in graphics or
other applications. While using the pen with your dominant hand, you can simultaneously use your
other hand to operate the ExpressKeys or Touch Strip. For example, use the ExpressKeys to quickly
change your tool properties, or slide your finger over the Touch Strip to quickly zoom in or out.
ExpressKeys
By default, the upper ExpressKeys modify the function of the corresponding Touch Strip located
directly behind the keys on the back of the Cintiq pen display.
When you press a key that has been assigned to TOUCH STRIP MODIFIER, the Touch Strip function is
changed according to the ExpressKeys setting in the Wacom Tablet control panel’s TOUCH STRIP tab.

The ExpressKeys enable you to speed up many common tasks. You can work with the default settings,
or choose from any of the other available functions. For example:
• Quickly change the functionality of a Touch Strip by first pressing a corresponding ExpressKey that
has been customized for the TOUCH STRIP MODIFIER function and then using the Touch Strip.
• On multiple monitor systems only, set an ExpressKey or a pen side switch to DISPLAY TOGGLE.
You can then press that button to toggle the screen cursor between the Cintiq pen display tablet
and your other displays. For example, Cintiq can be used as a pen display where the screen cursor
is positioned at the pen tip location, or toggled for use as a standard Wacom tablet where the
screen cursor can be moved across the entire desktop or additional displays.
• In Photoshop, pressing the spacebar (key 4 on your pen display tablet) switches the currently
selected tool to the hand tool and lets you pan (move) the image within the application window.
• In Photoshop and many other graphics applications, the ALT, CTRL, and SHIFT modifier keys modify
a tool or switch to a complementary tool while the modifier key is pressed.
Tips:
• Set a pair of keys to commonly used keystrokes, such as [ and ] to decrease and increase your
brush size in Photoshop.
• Set a key to a commonly used keyboard shortcut in order to open files or start an application.
• If you prefer not to (or cannot) use the side switches on your Grip Pen, then set a key to right- or
double-click.
See the electronic Software User’s Manual for more details on the available key settings.

Using the Touch Strips
The customizable Touch Strips can be operated in several different ways:
• Standard operation: Slide your finger up or down to zoom, scroll, or issue the assigned keystroke
function.
By sliding your finger over the Touch Strip you can quickly
zoom in or out, scroll up or down, or perform other functions.
You can do this with your secondary hand while using your
primary hand to work with the Grip Pen.
Each Touch Strip can also be set to issue custom keystrokes.
For example, you might set a Touch Strip action to change
brush sizes or cycle through layers when working in
Photoshop.
By default, the Touch Strips enable you to zoom in most
graphics applications and to scroll in other applications.
•
•
Continuous operation: Press and hold your finger at either end of the Touch Strip to continuously
scroll. This is useful for scrolling through long documents or web pages.
Single step operation: Press and release your finger at either end of the Touch Strip to zoom,

Setting up your work area
The Cintiq 20WSX pen display and stand were designed to provide you with the widest possible range
of flexibility and ergonomic work approach. The design allows you to quickly adjust Cintiq to a different
position whenever the need arises. You may want to experiment with different height adjustments to
determine which best fits your particular working style and tasks.
As you work with Cintiq, you can rest your hand lightly on the display screen, just as if it were a drawing
board or sheet of paper.
To minimize fatigue, organize your work area so you can work comfortably. Position Cintiq, the Grip
Pen, and your keyboard so they are easily accessible without unnecessary reaching. The pen display
tablet and any other monitors should be positioned so you can view them comfortably with a minimum
of eyestrain.
Here are some other points to keep in mind:
• Take short breaks between tasks to stretch and relax your muscles.
• Use a gentle grip when working with the pen.
• Alternate tasks throughout the day.
• Minimize awkward postures and repetitive movements that cause discomfort.
• Alternate between different modes of use.
Note: Wacom makes no representation, promise or guarantee that Wacom products will cure or prevent,
in whole or in part, mouse-induced repetitive stress symptoms, injuries or conditions. Individual results
may vary. Always obtain competent medical advice to determine the most appropriate treatment for your
specific situation.
By adjusting the Cintiq stand to its lowest
position, the pen display unit can be freely
rotated on the display stand without touching
the desktop. In this position, Cintiq emulates
a traditional animator’s table and gives you
the freedom to rotate the display unit to any
angle for the greatest comfort and accuracy
of stroke while drawing or editing images.
Working with your Cintiq
Page 30
Adjusting the Cintiq stand to its highest
position is common when your work requires a
large amount of keyboard input. This position
is also useful when presenting your work to
co-workers or clients.
Cintiq20WSX_Manual.fm Page 31 Monday, January 15, 2007 9:23 AM
Hints:
• If the rotation lock screws are attached to the back of Cintiq, they must be removed before
Cintiq can be rotated.
• Before rotating the display unit, be sure the cable is freely rotating behind the unit.
• Because the Cintiq drawing surface will be a little higher than your desk, consider adjusting the
height of your desk or chair to assure comfortable use of the device.
•
•
•
Maintain a good posture at all times, and change your position if you feel any discomfort due to
your work position.
Do not pull the cable out of its computer connections by accidentally moving the pen display
tablet too far from the computer.
An optional pen tether can be used to ensure your pen stays with your pen display tablet.
Note: Cintiq can also be mounted to articulated arms or other third-party stands meeting the VESA
100 specification for monitor stands. See Using an alternate mount or stand on page 57 for details.
Next step: If you have not already done so, learn about the basics of customizing the Grip Pen.

Calibrating Cintiq
You will need to calibrate the pen display tablet in order to align the screen cursor position with the
position of the pen on the display screen. This is required to adjust for parallax caused by the display
screen cover glass and coating. Set Cintiq in its working position, then follow the procedure below.
Important: When using a VGA connection
with Cintiq, make sure the LCD monitor is
properly adjusted before calibrating the tablet.
See Adjusting pitch and phase (VGA only) on
page 39, and Adjusting the LCD monitor
beginning on page 36.
•
•
•
•
•
•
In the Wacom Tablet control panel, select the
Grip Pen from the TOOL list and then select the
CALIBRATE tab.
If you are working with multiple monitors,
select the MONITOR option corresponding to
the Cintiq display. (Only monitors that are set
to one of the resolutions supported by Cintiq
will appear in the list.)
Click on the CALIBRATE... button to activate the
calibration screen.
Hold the pen and position your head as you
normally do when working with the tablet.
Use the pen tip to click on the center of the
crosshairs in the upper-left corner.
Then click on the center of the crosshairs that
are displayed in the lower-right corner.
Test the alignment by positioning the pen at a
few different points on the display. Click OK to
accept the calibration. Click TRY AGAIN to
recalibrate.
Be sure to read the directions in the calibration
screen for detailed instructions and additional
options. The calibration setting applies to all
applications.
Note: If more than one pen display tablet is
installed on your system, be sure to select the
Cintiq unit you are working with from the
control panel’s TABLET list.
Crosshairs
Adjustment pattern for pitch and phase.
See Adjusting pitch and phase (VGA only)
on page 39 for details.
Tip: If you prefer to see the screen cursor slightly offset from the actual position of the pen tip, calibrate by
clicking on a spot showing that offset from the crosshairs. For example, to have the screen cursor appear
1/10th of an inch above and to the left of the pen tip, calibrate by clicking on a spot 1/10th of an inch below
and to the right of the crosshairs.

Adjusting the LCD monitor
Factory presets, auto-sync, and user settings
Factory presets: For optimal display quality, set your video card to Cintiq’s native resolution of
1680 x 1050 pixels (WSXGA). See page 62 for signal specifications.
Auto-sync: When connected as a VGA display, Cintiq attempts to automatically synchronize to the
incoming signal. At the native resolution of 1680 x 1050, the vertical refresh frequency must be set
to 60 Hz. For other resolutions, auto-sync will function when the horizontal frequency is between 30 to
82 kHz and the vertical frequency is between 50 to 75 Hz. If a specific resolution and vertical refresh
frequency are not supported, you will see an “out of scan range” message. In this case choose a
different resolution or refresh frequency. The auto-sync function automatically sets the horizontal and
vertical screen position, as well as pitch and phase.
If Cintiq does not automatically synchronize with the incoming signal, you can open the OSD
menu, go to the RESET menu, and select the AUTO ADJUST option to initiate display synchronization.
Additional screen display adjustments can be manually made using the OSD controls.
Color calibration: Changing the color, color temperature, contrast, brightness, or backlight from their
default settings will invalidate the ICC color profile that was included on the driver CD.
Working with on screen display settings
Cintiq is equipped with an On Screen Display (OSD) function. The OSD function enables you to adjust
and optimize a variety of display settings at the touch of a button. The OSD controls are located on the
back of the unit. Simply reach over the top of the display unit to locate the buttons with your fingers.
Note: Braille-style dots above the buttons help you to identify each one by touch.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Most of the time your pen display tablet will work flawlessly. But if you are having trouble, Wacom
recommends you do the following:
1. If Cintiq does not function properly, refer to the troubleshooting section below. See also Display
troubleshooting on page 45, or look in the Pen tablet troubleshooting on page 47. Your problem
may be described there and you can try the solution offered.
2. Open the Wacom pen display Read Me file for late-breaking information.
3. If you are having a compatibility conflict between Cintiq and a new hardware or software product,
check if a newer pen tablet software driver is available. See Obtaining driver downloads on
page 53 for information on downloading an updated software driver. Wacom periodically updates
the software driver to maintain compatibility with new products.
4. Check the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) on the Wacom web site for your region.
5. If you have tried the suggestions in this manual and still cannot resolve the problem, then contact
Wacom for Technical Support. See the Read Me file for information on where to obtain support for
your region.
Testing Cintiq
1. If the Cintiq power LED does not light, check the following:
• First verify that the green light on the power adapter is on. If the light is not on, check that the
power cable is properly connected to the power adapter and to an active AC outlet.
• Check that the power adapter cable is securely connected to the Cintiq power cable and that
the Cintiq power switch is turned on. The Cintiq power LED will glow orange or blue whenever
Cintiq is on.
Important: Use only the AC adapter that came with your pen display. Other adapters may
cause damage to your product.
2. If there is no display:
• Make sure that your computer is turned on. The power LED will light blue when the proper
video signal is received, and orange if there is no video signal or if the computer is in a power
saving mode.
• Verify that Cintiq is connected to an active DVI-I, DVI-D, or VGA connector and that the
DVI/VGA switch on the back of Cintiq is set to the correct video setting.
• Check that your video card has been properly installed and is functional. If you have another
display that is compatible with your video card, you can connect that display to the card in order
to verify that the video card is operating correctly.
Troubleshooting

Cintiq20WSX_Manual.fm Page 42 Monday, January 15, 2007 9:23 AM
3. Verify that the tablet and Grip Pen are working:
• Press the Grip Pen tip against the display and verify that the status LED lights blue.
• If the LED does not light, verify that Cintiq’s USB cable is plugged into an active USB port.
If Cintiq is plugged into a USB hub, try plugging Cintiq directly into the USB port on your
computer.
• Be sure that the USB port to which you are connecting Cintiq has not been disabled. It may be
necessary to check your system BIOS setting to verify that you have connected Cintiq to an
active USB port.
• The status LED will light blue when Cintiq is registered as a USB device and the pen tip is
pressed against the display.
4. Check the pen. If you cannot make a selection on the display screen with the pen:
• Test the pen by pressing the pen tip or the eraser against the surface of the pen display tablet.
The status LED should light blue.
• Now, without applying pressure to the pen tip but keeping the pen within 5 mm (0.2 inch) of the
pen display tablet surface, press the side switch. The status LED should again light blue.
• If the status LED does not light blue for these tests, be sure you are using the correct pen that
came with Cintiq.
• See Testing your input tools and pen display controls on page 43 and Testing a pen on page 44
for more information.
If you are still having problems, you may have a defective pen or pen display tablet.

Testing your input tools and pen display controls
If the Grip Pen, or the Cintiq ExpressKeys or Touch Strips do not work as you expect, it is a good idea to
first check the assigned functions or reset them to their default conditions. A quick way to reset a pen to
its default settings is to remove it from the TOOL list by clicking on the list’s [ – ] button. After the pen has
been removed, place it back onto the display screen surface and the pen will be re-added to the TOOL
list with its default settings.
Open the Wacom Tablet control panel and click on the ABOUT button. In the dialog box that appears,
click on the DIAGNOSE... button to open the DIAGNOSTICS dialog box. The DIAGNOSTICS dialog box
displays dynamic information about the Cintiq pen display tablet and pen. This information is used
when testing Cintiq and your input tool(s).
If more than one Cintiq unit is connected to your system, be sure to select the unit for which you are
testing in the TABLET INFO column.
Note: When testing your tool buttons, if a button is set to POP-UP MENU or OPEN/RUN..., that
function will occur when the button is pressed. In this case you may want to change that button’s
function before testing.
Testing the ExpressKeys
1. With the DIAGNOSTICS dialog box open, observe the TABLET INFO column as you test the
ExpressKeys. If you have more than one Cintiq unit connected to your system, be sure to select
the unit you are testing from the TABLET INFO column.
2. Test the ExpressKeys by pressing them one at a time. Each time you press a key, its number will
be displayed next to either the LEFT KEYS or RIGHT KEYS category, depending on which keys group
you are testing.
When you are done, click the CLOSE button to exit the dialog box.
Testing the Touch Strips
1. With the DIAGNOSTICS dialog box open, observe the TABLET INFO column as you test each Touch
Strip. If you have more than one Cintiq unit connected to your system, be sure to select the unit you
are testing from the TABLET INFO column.
2. Slide your finger up or down along the entire length of the Touch Strip you want to test. As you
touch and move your finger along the Touch Strip, a number will indicate the current finger position
for the respective Touch Strip next to LEFT TOUCH STRIP or RIGHT TOUCH STRIP.
When you are done, click the CLOSE button to exit the dialog box.

Cintiq20WSX_Manual.fm Page 44 Monday, January 15, 2007 9:23 AM
Testing a pen
1. While observing the POINTING DEVICE INFO column, bring your pen within 5 mm (0.2 inch) of the
display screen. A value for PROXIMITY, the DEVICE NAME, DEVICE TYPE, and a DEVICE S/N (serial
number) should be displayed. If you have more than one Cintiq unit connected to your system, be
sure to select the unit for which you are testing a pen in the TABLET INFO column.
2. Move your tool along the tablet surface. The X and Y DATA values should change to reflect the tool
position.
3. Test your pen switches. The Cintiq status LED should light blue each time you click with the tool tip,
press the side switch, or press the tool’s eraser to the display screen.
• Press on the display screen surface with the tool tip – the SWITCHES state and PRESSURE value
should change. (PRESSURE should change from approximately 0% with no pressure applied to
approximately 100% when full pressure is applied.)
• Next, press the side switch without pressing the tip to the tablet – the SWITCHES state should
change. (For the Grip Pen, do this for both positions of the DuoSwitch.)
•
•
Pen
Tip = 1, DuoSwitch (lower position) = 2,
DuoSwitch (upper position) = 3, Eraser = 1
Airbrush
Tip = 1, Side Switch = 2, Eraser = 1
Press the tool’s eraser to the display screen – the SWITCHES state and PRESSURE value should
change. (PRESSURE should change from approximately 0% with no pressure applied to
approximately 100% when full pressure is applied.)
For the optional Airbrush, move the fingerwheel forward – the WHEEL value should decrease to
a value of approximately 0 when the fingerwheel is all the way forward. Move the fingerwheel
backward – the WHEEL value should increase to approximately 1000 when the fingerwheel is all
the way back.
4. Test tilt for the x-axis by moving the pen from a vertical position toward the right; the X TILT value
should change from approximately 0 to +60. Now move the tool to the left of vertical; the X TILT
value should change from approximately 0 to -60.
5. Test the tilt for the y-axis by moving the pen from a vertical position toward the bottom of the tablet;
the Y TILT value should change from approximately 0 to +60. Now move the tool toward the top of
the tablet; the Y TILT value should change from approximately 0 to +60.
6. For the optional 6D Art Pen, test the rotation feature by placing the pen tip on the display screen
surface and slowing rotating the pen on its axis. The ROTATION value should change as you rotate
the pen.
7. When you are done, click on the CLOSE button to exit the dialog box.

Be sure you are using the pen that originally came with your pen
display tablet, or an Intuos3 pen. Other pens may not function
properly on the Cintiq pen display.
Be sure you press the side switch when the pen tip is within 5 mm
(0.2 inch) of the pen display tablet’s active area – do this without
pressing down on the pen tip.
From the Wacom Tablet control panel, verify that the side switch is set
to the proper function you are expecting to occur for the application
(and input tool) you are using. Check also which SIDE SWITCH MODE
option is selected. (These options are accessed by clicking on the
control panel OPTIONS... button.)
Make sure the status LED lights blue when you press the side switch.
If the LED does not light, verify that the USB cable is plugged into an
active USB port on your computer or on a USB hub.
If the LED still does not light, you may have defective hardware
(see Troubleshooting on page 41).

The pen tip and screen
cursor do not properly line
up.
The screen cursor moves
but it does not jump to the
pen tip location when the
pen is placed on the display
screen, and it does not
follow the pen tip when the
pen is moved across the
display.
When using Cintiq on a
multiple monitor system,
you cannot use the pen to
control the other monitor(s).
The line you are drawing
does not line up with the

Caring for Cintiq
Keep the Grip Pen and your Cintiq LCD screen surface clean. Dust and dirt particles can stick to the
pen and cause wear to the display screen surface. Regular cleaning will help to prolong the life of your
LCD screen surface and pen. Keep Cintiq, the Cintiq stand, and the Grip Pen in a clean, dry place and
avoid extremes in temperature. Room temperature is best. Cintiq, the Cintiq stand, and the Grip Pen
are not made to come apart. Taking apart the product will void your warranty.
Important: Take care to never spill liquids onto the pen display tablet or pen. Be especially
careful of getting the display, tablet ExpressKeys, Touch Strips, or pen buttons, tip, and eraser
wet – they contain sensitive electronic parts that will fail if liquids enter them.
Cleaning
To clean the Cintiq casing, the Cintiq display stand, or the Grip Pen, use a soft, damp cloth; you can
also dampen the cloth using a very mild soap diluted with water. Do not use paint thinner, benzine,
alcohol, or other solvents to clean the unit casing or pen.
To clean the display screen, use an anti-static cloth or a slightly damp cloth. When cleaning, apply only
a light amount of pressure to the display screen and do not make the surface wet. Do not use detergent
to clean the display screen; this may damage the coating on the screen. Please note that damage of
this kind is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

Cintiq20WSX_Manual.fm Page 55 Monday, January 15, 2007 9:23 AM
Replacing the pen tip
The pen tip (nib) will wear with normal use. Excessive pressure will cause the nib to wear sooner.
When the nib gets too short or develops a sharp edge, replace it with one of the extra nibs that came
with the pen.
To remove the old nib:
Clasp it with a Wacom nib extractor, pair of
tweezers, needle-nosed plier, or similar
instrument and pull the old nib straight out of
the pen.
To insert a new nib:
Slide it straight into the barrel of the pen.
Firmly push the nib until it stops. The new nib
will slide into the correct position.
WARNING Prevent children from swallowing the pen tip or side switch. The pen tip (nib)
or side switch may accidentally be pulled out if children are biting on them.
If the pen nib wears and becomes angular, it may damage the coating on the Cintiq display screen.
To avoid this, periodic nib replacement is recommended.
Important: When the pen is not in use, place it in the pen stand, the pen holder, or lay it flat on
your desk. To maintain the sensitivity of your pen, do not store the tool in a container where it
will rest on its tip or eraser.

4. Next remove the four attachment screws from the cable cover plate and lift the plate away from the
pen display unit.
5. Place the cable into the cable exit channel. Then reattach the cable cover plate making sure to
use the correct screws for reattachment. (The cable cover plate screws are shorter than the
bearing hub attachment screws.)
6. Using the screws that came with the bearing hub recess cover plate (included with your product),
install the plate in place of the bearing hub to protect the interior of the unit from dust particles.
7. Now, using the appropriate VESA mounting screws, firmly attach Cintiq to the alternate mounting
platform.
CAUTION When attaching Cintiq onto an alternate mounting platform, be
sure to follow all instructions in the documentation supplied by
the platform manufacturer. If improperly installed, the unit
could fall, resulting in damage to the unit or physical injury.
8. Refer to the Installation instructions beginning on page 15 and reattach the cabling to your
computer.
To remove Cintiq from an alternate mounting platform:
1. Turn off your computer and power off Cintiq. Then disconnect all cables from between the unit and
your computer.
2. Remove Cintiq from the alternate mounting platform.
3. Place the pen display unit face down on a flat, soft surface (such as a cloth spread across a
desktop). Remove the bearing cover plate.
4. Remove the cable cover plate and lift the cable out of the cable channel. After freeing up the cable,
replace the cable cover plate.
5. Lay out and study the bearing hub components – you should have two bearing hub sections, a
bearing stopper, and four screws. Locate the bearing stopper within one of the bearing hub
sections. (Either hub section can be used, as they are identical parts.) When correctly placed, the
bearing stopper will shift smoothly from side to side within the stopper groove. The stopper will also
sit flush with the rear hub surface.
Illustrates correct location of bearing
stopper within bearing hub section.

6. Taking care not to dislodge the bearing stopper from the hub section, position the two halves of the
bearing hub together around the pen display tablet cable and over their attachment points.
Proper positioning shows the hub sections
aligned along the horizontal axis of the pen
display tablet.
The section containing the bearing stopper
should be positioned toward the top of the pen
display tablet.
7. Attach the bearing hub sections to the unit making sure to use the correct screws for reattachment.
(The bearing hub screws are longer than the cable cover plate screws.)

accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
You can determine whether the equipment is causing interference by powering it off. If the interference stops, it
was probably caused by the equipment.
If the equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception, you may be able to correct the
interference by using one or more of the following measures:
•
Rotate the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
•
Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
•
Plug the equipment and computer into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio.
If necessary, consult your Wacom dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for help.
