Introduction and Overview
The Wacom® Cintiq™ 18SX Interactive Pen Display combines an LCD display with a Wacom tablet.
This gives you a direct point-and-draw-on-screen interface that can be used with a Personal Computer (PC), Macintosh® computer, or SGI™ or Sun® workstation. Cintiq’s basic components
include a Wacom tablet internally mounted behind an 18.1” diagonal TFT color LCD display, and
Wacom’s Grip Pen.
Your Cintiq Interactive Pen Display offers a number of significant advantages over a standard
display:
■
Integrated input and display
■
Pressure-sensitive drawing directly on the display screen
■
Reduced power consumption and heat generation
■
Requires less work space
■
Flicker free and easier on the eyes.
Cintiq comes with a modular display stand, which allows you to easily rotate the Interactive Pen
Display unit to any orientation, and to adjust the incline of the working surface to any angle
between 13 and 70 degrees. You can also lock Cintiq in either a landscape or portrait orientation.
If you prefer to use Cintiq on your lap, simply lift the display unit out of the stand. Please refer to
Working with Cintiq on page 32 for more information.
The workspace, and how you interact with it, was an important consideration in the design and
development of Cintiq. Regardless of how you prefer to work with the Interactive Pen Display,
you will find that Cintiq is ideally suited to a variety of diverse professional fields and applications.
Cintiq is especially useful in the fields of animation, graphics design, 3D modeling, and video and
film post-production. Some additional areas of use include architectural design, AV presentations,
industrial design, medical imaging, textile design, and any others where direct manipulation of the
screen image is useful.
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 Interactive Pen Display and the Cintiq stand are packed separately. Refer to Unpacking Cintiq
on page 12 before removing Cintiq or the stand from the box. Please follow all instructions
carefully.

Note that the computer treats the two parts of Cintiq (the LCD display and the Wacom
tablet) as separate pieces of hardware. Therefore, the installation process is completed in two
stages:
■
First, you will install the LCD display portion of Cintiq.
■
In the second stage you will install Cintiq’s tablet functionality.
Both stages require hardware and software installations.

UNPACKING THE CINTIQ STAND
When unpacking Cintiq, first unpack the modular display stand. Place the stand on your desktop
or work surface, making sure the stand is stable and will not tip or fall when the Interactive Pen
Display is mounted on it. Then familiarize yourself with the stand components.
CAUTION 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
Cintiq Stand on page 28.
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 have
replaceable felt
pads, allowing the
feet to move when
adjusting incline.
The Cintiq stand supports the Interactive Pen Display unit. The stand can be used to adjust the
incline angle of the display unit from a low position (13 degrees from horizontal) to a high
position (70 degrees from horizontal). And, you can rotate Cintiq from landscape to portrait
orientation, or to any angle between +180 and -180 degrees. The stand also allows easy removal
of Cintiq for use in a semi-supported lap position.
Note: Whenever you are not using Cintiq in your lap, Cintiq must be stored in the stand to
avoid damage to the display screen or cabling.
Please refer to Working with Cintiq on page 32 for more information.
Next Step: Unpack the Interactive Pen Display and mount it onto the Cintiq stand. See page 14

Installation
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Before installing Cintiq, make sure your computer meets the following system requirements:
■
Macintosh. OS 9 or 10.1 and higher. DVI or VGA video connector, available USB port, and
CD-ROM drive. ADC connectors require an ADC to DVI-D adaptor (not included).
■
PC. Windows 98, Me, 2000, or XP. DVI or VGA video connector, available USB or serial port,
and CD-ROM drive.
■
SGI and Sun workstations. Additional purchase of Wacom UNIX kit. IRIX 6.5 or later
for SGI. Solaris 2.6 or later for Sun. DVI or VGA video connector, available serial port, and
CD-ROM drive.
Cintiq supports both digital (DVI) and analog (VGA) video signals. By using the VGA to DVI-I
adaptor, 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 exhibit less cursor lag on the screen.
If you plan to install a video card with digital output, 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 that the video card is
operating correctly. For information on digital video cards that have been tested with Cintiq, refer
to Wacom’s Web site at http://www.wacom.com/cintiq
There are two primary steps to the installation process:
■
Step 1: LCD Display Installation
■
Step 2: Tablet Installation
Be sure to follow ALL installation instructions carefully. Failure to do so may cause
damage to Cintiq or to the video card in your computer.
18
STEP1: LCD DISPLAY INSTALLATION
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.
In the first stage of the installation process you will install Cintiq as a display on your system.
As you work through this stage, please refer to the LCD Display Cabling Diagram on the following
page when making cable connections.

Each Cintiq 18SX 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 pages 55 and 56 for more information.
If an image area has fine striping (such as screen stripes), it may 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 without refreshing the screen, an after-image may
remain for a short period of time. To prevent this, Wacom recommends using a screen saver or other power
management feature.

Using Cintiq
ADJUSTING THE CINTIQ STAND
The stand allows Cintiq’s incline to be adjusted to any angle between 13 and 70 degrees. You can
also rotate Cintiq from landscape to portrait orientation, or to any angle between +180 and -180
degrees.
Adjusting the Display Incline
To adjust the incline, from the front of Cintiq grasp the Interactive Pen Display 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 may exhibit some natural play before the clutch mechanism
engages. For the most accurate incline adjustment, first raise the incline slightly higher than
you plan to work with, then lower the display to the desired position.
Adjusting Rotation
The Interactive Pen Display can be rotated on the display stand when the incline is less than or
equal to 32 degrees.
To adjust rotation, grasp Cintiq by the main body casing 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. Note that the lock brackets can be used to lock Cintiq in either a landscape or portrait
orientation. See Optional Display Configurations on page 53 for more information.
28
Removing Cintiq from the Display Stand
To remove Cintiq from the display stand:
■
If the lock brackets are attached, remove them from the back of Cintiq.
■
Position the display to landscape orientation before removing Cintiq 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 Cintiq Stand on
page 28 for instructions.
■
Firmly grasp the Interactive Pen Display on both the left and right sides of the body casing, and
lift the unit out of the display stand bearing recess.
Important: When removing Cintiq from the display stand, always lift Cintiq in a direction
parallel to the front of the stand.
Note: When packing Cintiq for transport, always pack the Interactive Pen Display and Cintiq
stand in their original containers and protective cushions. Never pack the two items with the
display unit mounted on the stand; this may damage the display unit or stand during transportation.
29
Using the Grip Pen
WORKING WITH THE GRIP PEN (UP-911E)
As you work with Cintiq, you can rest your hand on the display screen, just as if it were a drawing
board or sheet of paper. Hold the Grip Pen as you would a pencil. Make sure the side switch is
in a convenient location where you can press it with your thumb or forefinger, but won’t accidentally press it while drawing.
Eraser
DuoSwitch
(side switch)
Tip switch
Note: The Grip Pen
should never be
stored in a container
where it will rest on
its tip or eraser.
When the pen is not
in use, place your
pen in the pen stand
or lay it flat on your
desk.
Pen Tip
The pen is activated as soon as it enters proximity, about 5 mm (0.2 in), above the Interactive 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 mouse
button click. The tip click pressure can be adjusted in the Wacom Tablet Control Panel.
Please refer to the online Help for details.
Eraser
To use the eraser, hold the Grip Pen upside down. When the eraser is within proximity of the
active area, the tablet reports the pen coordinates and the pressure applied to the eraser.
The eraser can be used as an eraser or assigned to another function, depending on the application.
The tablet distinguishes the tip switch from the eraser switch. Refer to the online Help for the pen
settings.
DuoSwitch
The DuoSwitch is programmable, and can be used to perform the same click and double-click
functions as the tip switch. Toggle the DuoSwitch in either direction to activate the upper or lower
button functions. Please refer to the online Help for more information on switch settings.
Note: If you do not care to use the side switch, you can remove it by following the directions
in DuoSwitch Removal and Installation, on page 51.
30
USING A PEN
Pointing and Selecting
Move the Grip Pen above the Cintiq display screen to position 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: If the screen cursor does not closely follow the pen tip, you will need to calibrate the
Interactive Pen Display. (See Calibrating Cintiq on page 36.) 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
tablet driver did not load yet. In this case, refer to the online Help for troubleshooting tips.
(See Learning More About Cintiq on page 37 for information on accessing the online Help.)
Clicking
Tap the display screen once with the pen tip, or touch the pen to the display screen with enough
pressure to generate a mouse click.
Double-Clicking
Press the upper side switch (Windows) or lower side switch (Macintosh), 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.
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:
Windows Me, 2000, or XP. Open a folder, select the Tools pull-down menu, and Folder
Options.... From the General tab select the option Single-click to open an item (point to
select).
Windows 98. Open a folder, select the View pull-down menu, and Folder Options....
From the General tab select the Web style option.
Dragging
Select an object, then slide the pen tip across the display screen to move the object.
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.
31
Working with Cintiq
The Cintiq 18SX Interactive Pen Display and stand were designed to provide you with the widest
possible range of flexibility and ergonomic work approach. The design allows for fast, easy
transitions between three basic modes of use, enabling you to quickly adjust Cintiq to a different
position whenever the need arises. You may want to evaluate each mode 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.
TABLET MODE
At inclines of less than 32 degrees, the 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.
DISPLAY MODE
This is a common position when using Cintiq
as a primary display, and when your work
requires a large amount of keyboard input.
Display mode is also useful when presenting
your work to co-workers or clients.
Hints:
32
■
If the rotation lock brackets 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 has been untucked from the cable guide and
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.
LAP MODE
When working in lap mode, you can freely
position Cintiq without the use of the stand.
If you are not familiar with how to remove
Cintiq from the display stand, refer to page 29
for details.
Hints:
■
Set the display stand to the upright position so that you can use it as a tablet stand whenever
Cintiq is not in use. You can also use the stand as a cable guide—this makes it easier to
remove the display unit from the stand and to return it back to the stand.
■
The rear side of the display unit has a flat upper surface for resting the unit securely against a
straight desk edge.
Important: Do not place the display unit on the desk or any other surface by itself—this may
bend, crimp, or otherwise damage the cable.
■
Insert the main cable into the cable guide located at the back of Cintiq—this will reduce the
possibility of placing undue stress on the cable when working with Cintiq.
■
Make sure that you comfortably support the body of the display unit in your lap, and that the
unit is not resting on the cable. If the unit rests on the cable, the cable will excessively bend
or crimp and be damaged.
■
Maintain a good posture at all times, and change your position if you feel any discomfort due
to your work position or the weight of Cintiq.
■
Do not pull the cable out of its computer connections by accidentally moving the Interactive
Pen Display too far from the computer.
33
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 Interactive Pen Display should be positioned so you can view it 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.
Next Step: If you have not already done so, learn about
the basics of customizing the Grip Pen. See page 35

Caring for Cintiq
Keep the Grip Pen and the 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 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 (except where specifically indicated for removal and
replacement of the pen’s DuoSwitch). Taking apart the product will void your warranty.
CLEANING
To clean the Cintiq casing, the Cintiq display stand, or the Grip Pen, use a soft cloth and
mild detergent (such as dishwashing liquid) diluted with water. Do not use paint thinner, benzine,
alcohol, or other solvents to clean the unit casing, display stand, 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.
REPLACING THE PEN TIP
The pen tip will wear with normal use. When the pen tip gets too short, you can replace it with
one of the extra tips that came with the pen.
To remove the old tip:
Clasp it with a pair of tweezers, needle-nosed
plier, or similar instrument and pull the old tip
straight out of the pen.
To insert a new tip:
Slide it straight into the barrel of the pen.
Firmly push the tip until it stops. The new
tip will slide into the correct position.
If the pen tip wears and becomes angular, it may damage the coating on the Cintiq display screen.
To avoid this, periodic tip replacement is recommended.
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.

MAINTAINING THE CINTIQ STAND
If the stand’s felt ring or the rear foot pads become worn, you may want to replace them to prevent
damage to the back of the Interactive Pen Display or to your work surface.
To replace the felt bearing mount ring, carefully remove the worn ring and replace it with the
spare ring that came with Cintiq.
To replace the rear display stand foot pads, carefully remove the worn pads and replace them
with the spare foot pads that came with Cintiq.

Troubleshooting
If the Wacom tablet driver failed to load properly, first perform any recommended action in the
error message on your screen.
If the Cintiq hardware does not function properly, refer to the troubleshooting section below.
If necessary, refer to the online Help for additional troubleshooting information.
Answers to frequently asked questions and information on known issues can be found on the
Wacom web site. See pages 49 and 50 to locate the Internet address for your region.
TESTING CINTIQ
If Cintiq does not power up, check the following:
■
Verify that the cabling between Cintiq and your computer is correct. Be sure the power supply
is plugged into an active AC outlet and that it is connected to Cintiq. Verify that any other
display connection(s) to your video card are correct.
■
Verify that Cintiq is powered on.
■
The Cintiq power LED should light whenever the cabling is properly connected and the Cintiq
power switch is on. When the computer is turned on and a video signal is received, the Cintiq
display will activate and the power LED will glow green. If there is no display, verify 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.
TESTING THE TABLET AND GRIP PEN
If you cannot make a selection on the display screen with the Grip Pen:
■
Test the pen by pressing the pen tip against the surface of the tablet. The status LED should
light green.
■
Now, without applying pressure to the pen tip (but keeping the pen within proximity of the
tablet surface), press the side switch. The status LED should again light green.
■
Next, bring the pen’s eraser within proximity of the tablet surface and press it against the
tablet. The status LED should light green.
If the status LED does not light green for these tests, be sure you are using the correct pen that
came with Cintiq. If you are still having problems, you may have a defective pen or tablet.

DUOSWITCH REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
Some users prefer to remove the DuoSwitch when working with the Grip Pen. For example, you
may want to remove the switch in order to focus on a drawing and eliminate any accidental clicks
that would occur if you unintentionally pressed on the switch. Note, however, that removing the
DuoSwitch also removes the button functionality it offers. For most users it is unnecessary to
remove the DuoSwitch.
To remove the DuoSwitch:
1. Firmly clasp the DuoSwitch in
the middle and pull out. (Press
in on the rubberized grip in order to better grasp the switch.)
Important: Do not remove the
switch by prying it from either
end as this may damage your
Pen. NEVER adjust the trimmer
capacitor that will be visible
when the switch is removed.
When using the pen without the
DuoSwitch, always replace the
original rubberized grip with the
optional grip in order to protect
the trimmer capacitor.

2. Remove the pen tip cone by
turning it counterclockwise.
Then pull the grip forward over
the pen tip.
3. Install the optional grip by aligning the pen case rails with the
grooves inside the grip and
pushing the grip over the pen
tip. Then replace the pen tip
cone by turning it clockwise
onto the pen.

To Install the DuoSwitch:
1. Remove the pen tip cone by
turning it counterclockwise.
Then pull the grip forward
over the pen tip.
2. Install the original grip (the
one with the DuoSwitch access slot) by aligning the pen
case rails with the grooves inside the grip and pushing the
grip over the pen tip.
When properly positioned, the
DuoSwitch access hole will reveal the trimmer capacitor.
Then install the pen tip cone
by turning it clockwise onto
the pen.
3. Align the DuoSwitch into
place, making sure to match
the switch position to the grip
molding. Then gently press in
on the DuoSwitch until it
snaps into place.

OPTIONAL DISPLAY CONFIGURATIONS
Using the lock brackets, you can lock the Interactive Pen Display in either a landscape or portrait
orientation when mounted on the Cintiq stand.
Locking the Display to the Stand
To lock Cintiq to the display stand:
■
Rotate the Interactive Pen Display to either a landscape or portrait position.
■
Two VESA mount screw holes should be visible on the back side of Cintiq, just above the
display stand cutout.
■
Locate the left and right lock brackets; they mirror one another and must be installed on the
correct sides for a proper fit. Make sure the groove in each lock bracket follows the contour
of the stand ridge, and that the arrows on the brackets point toward each other. Place each
bracket, with the bracket hook over the stand ridge, and insert the lock screws through the
bracket and into the VESA screw holes.
■
Hand tighten the lock screws until each lock bracket is firmly attached.
Cintiq should now be firmly attached to the stand.
Note: To change the image displayed by Cintiq to portrait orientation, you need to purchase
and install Pivot® software by Portrait Displays® (www.portrait.com). With Cintiq in portrait
orientation, select the portrait option in the Pivot software. The Interactive Pen Display and
Grip Pen orientation will adjust to portrait mode.
Important: The tablet driver only supports a 90 degree clockwise rotation to portrait
orientation.
CAUTION Avoid placing excess
physical pressure on the
Cintiq stand; doing so
can damage the stand.

Using an Alternate Mount or Stand
If you plan to use Cintiq in an installation that
requires the use of an alternate mounting platform, you can mount the Interactive Pen Display onto a VESA conforming mount arm or
stand. A VESA mounting platform will require
mount screws that are 4 mm wide with a
0.7 mm pitch (M4 Regular), and a maximum
screw clearance depth of 10 mm. Exceeding
the clearance depth of 10 mm will damage
Cintiq internal components. The hole pattern
should be a 100 x 100 mm square. The VESA
mounting platform will also require an aperture of sufficient clearance to accomodate the
Cintiq cable and bearing hub (70 mm diameter).
To attach Cintiq to a different mounting platform:
1. Turn off your computer and power off
Cintiq. Then disconnect all cables from
between the unit and your computer.
2. If Cintiq is mounted, remove it from the
display stand.
3. Protect the display screen surface by
spreading a soft cloth onto a flat table and
placing Cintiq face down on the cloth.
4. Using the appropriate screws for your
mounting platform, firmly attach Cintiq to
the alternate mounting platform. Be sure
the integral cable and bearing mount pass
through the mount aperture without binding or excess pressure.
5. Refer to the appropriate installation
instructions, beginning on page 18, and
reattach the cabling.
54

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.

LCD Display (cont.)
LCD quality:
Each Cintiq 18SX 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.
Wacom quality standards are based on internationally accepted
standards for LCD displays. Wacom requires more than 99.999% of
the 1,310,720 pixels on each Cintiq 18SX to function perfectly, and
does not allow any pixel to be always white or always black.
A small number of pixels (10 or less) are allowed to show a wrong
color for some parts of the color spectrum.
