RADIO AND TELEVISION INTERFERENCE
The equipment described in this manual generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not installed and used
properly—that is, in strict accordance with Wacom instructions—it may cause interference with radio and television reception.
FCC NOTICE
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of FCC
Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in 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 tablet is causing interference by powering it off. If the interference stops, it was probably
caused by the tablet.
If your tablet 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 tablet farther away from the television or radio.
• Plug the tablet 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.
Changes or modifications to this product not authorized by Wacom could void the FCC Certification and negate your authority
to operate the product.

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE INSTALLATION
For serial tablets:
•
Turn off your computer and attach the tablet before installing the software.
•
If your computer does not have an available serial port, you will need to remove an existing serial
device or add an additional serial port.
•
Some computers have a built-in modem and the external serial port may be disabled or configured with
the same serial port address as the modem. If your tablet does not communicate properly after
installing the hardware and software, check your serial port to verify that it is properly configured.
See Having Trouble? for more information.
•
If you are using a DOS shell under Windows 95 or later or NT 4.0 or later, Intuos will automatically
function in the DOS shell after you install the Wacom drivers for Windows.
For USB tablets:
•
Intuos requires that you connect the tablet to a primary USB port (located at the back of your
computer) or to a powered USB hub.
•
Your computer must be USB ready and the USB port or powered hub you are connecting your tablet to
must be active. See Verifying Your Computer is USB Ready for more information.

ergonomically designed. Each tool also has a Tool ID, enabling you to work with multiple tools on the
same tablet and to customize each tool differently.
Note: The tool(s) included with your tablet will vary depending on which tablet model and configuration
you purchased.
The Intuos Pen and Airbrush are pressure-sensitive freehand tools for image editing and creating naturallooking pen and brush strokes.

SETTING UP YOUR WORK AREA
Organize your work area so you can work comfortably. Position your Intuos tablet, input tools, and
keyboard so they are easily accessible without unnecessary reaching. Your monitor should be positioned
so you can view it comfortably with a minimum of eyestrain.
To minimize fatigue:
•
•
•
•
Take short breaks between tasks to stretch
and relax your muscles.
Use a gentle grip when working with your
Intuos tools.
Alternate tasks throughout the day.
Minimize awkward postures and repetitive
movements that cause discomfort.
For some tablet models, you can adjust the tablet incline and attach the pen stand to better fit your work
style. Refer to Adjusting Tablet Incline and Adjusting the Pen Stand for additional information.

WORKING WITH THE TABLET
Your tablet comes with a pen stand, a customizable menu strip, and a transparent overlay.
ADJUSTING THE PEN STAND
Position the pen stand near the tablet. The triple pen stand can also be attached to the larger tablets.

4x5, 6x8, and 9x12 tablets: The stand is
free-standing. Place it within easy reach of
your tablet.

ADJUSTING TABLET INCLINE
Intuos 6x8 and 9x12 tablets come with a rubber bar that can be used to raise the tablet’s incline angle.
If you frequently use the tablet on your lap, you may not want to apply the incline bar. For desktop use,
you may find an inclined tablet position more comfortable.
To attach the incline bar:
1. First turn the tablet upside down and locate the incline bar recess.
2. Remove the paper backing from the incline bar to expose the adhesive. Carefully press the bar’s
adhesive side onto the tablet recess area.
3. Return the tablet to its face up position.
The recess is designed for use in landscape orientation.

USING INTUOS
Page 29
USING THE TABLET MENU STRIP
All Intuos tablets have a menu strip with programmable buttons that allow you to quickly perform common
tasks. For 4x5 tablets, the menu strip is printed on the overlay sheet. For 6x8 and larger tablets, the menu
strip is removable, and can be written on with a pencil. The number of available buttons depends on your
tablet model.
To use the menu strip, click on a button with your Intuos tool; the function assigned to that button will
occur.
To remove the menu strip, carefully lift the overlay sheet from the left side
and gently slide the menu strip out. You can use the adhesive side of a
sticky notepad sheet to “grab” the menu strip. When removing and
replacing the menu strip, take care not to bend or tear your tablet overlay.
Notes:
•
•
When pointing to a button, the screen cursor changes to display the button
number. This enables you to select menu buttons with the 4D Mouse.
Changes to mapping and pressure options apply only to the tool used to
select the respective tablet button.

USING THE PEN
Intuos Pens are cordless, batteryless, and pressure sensitive. There are four basic techniques for using
the Intuos Pen: pointing, clicking, double-clicking, and dragging. With a bit of practice, using the pen will
become second nature to you. If you are unfamiliar with using a pen, try the exercises on the following
pages.
HOLDING THE PEN
Hold the Intuos Pen like you would a normal pen. Make sure the DuoSwitch is in a convenient location
where you can toggle it with your thumb or forefinger, but not accidently press the switch while drawing.
You can tilt the pen in any way that feels most comfortable for drawing.
Position for drawing
Position for erasing
Important: When the pen is not in use, place it in the Intuos pen stand or lay it flat on your desk. To
maintain the sensitivity of your pen tip, do not store the pen in a container where it will rest on its tip.
Leaving an Intuos tool on the tablet may interfere with screen cursor positioning when using other
pointing devices.
Contents
Index
USING INTUOS
Page 32
POINTING
The Intuos Pen positions the pointer (or cursor) on your screen. You can position the screen cursor two
different ways, like a pen (Pen Mode) or like a mouse (Mouse Mode).
•
In Pen Mode, the tablet’s active area is like a mapped representation of your computer screen where
every point on the tablet’s active area corresponds to exactly one point on the display screen; wherever
you place the pen on the tablet, the screen cursor will jump to the corresponding point on the screen.
This is the default setting for the Intuos Pen and Airbrush, and makes tracing possible—something you
cannot do with a mouse.
•
In Mouse Mode, you move the cursor with a “pick up and roll” action similar to using a mouse. This is
the default setting for the 4D Mouse and Lens Cursor.
Try moving the screen cursor by lifting the Intuos Pen and placing it in a new location on the tablet.
The cursor instantly jumps to the new location.
Learning Hint: If you are used to
working with a mouse and find that
using a pen is somewhat difficult, try
the Eye-Hand Coordination Exercise.
Pointing Hint: Pointing is easier when
you orient the tablet so the screen cursor
follows the same direction as your hand
movements on the tablet.
Contents
Index
USING INTUOS
Page 33
CLICKING
Clicking. To click, tap the tablet once with the tip of the Intuos Pen, or press the pen tip on the tablet with
enough force to register a click. (With the pen tip, there is no audible “click” sound.)
Try clicking on a folder icon by moving the screen cursor over the icon and pressing down on the pen tip.
The icon should highlight when you press.
Double Clicking. To double-click, quickly tap the tablet twice in the same place with the pen tip. This is
like clicking twice with a mouse button. You can also double-click by pressing the upper side switch—this
is the preferred method of double-clicking with a pen.
Try both ways of double-clicking on a folder icon to open it. First use your pen tip to do this, then use the
upper side switch.
Contents
Index
USING INTUOS
Page 34
USING THE SIDE SWITCH
The standard Intuos 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 in Proximity of the tablet. You do not have to touch the pen tip to the tablet in order to use the switch.
The upper switch position is set
to left double-click by default.
Windows Hint: Use right-click to bring up
application-specific or icon-specific menus.
The lower switch position is set for
a right-click by default.
Double-Click Hint: Press the upper side
switch to double-click. This is easier than
tapping twice with the pen tip.
To assign new switch functions, refer to Customizing Tool Buttons.

DRAGGING
Dragging is used to select and move objects on the screen. To drag, first point to an object. Then press
the Intuos Pen to the tablet and slide it across the tablet. The selected object will move across the screen.
To select text, move the screen cursor to the beginning of a text line, then drag the Intuos Pen across the
tablet until the text is highlighted.
First, try moving an icon on the screen. Then, within a document, select some text by pressing and
dragging the pen tip across the text.
Contents
Index
USING INTUOS
Page 36
PROXIMITY
The pen is activated as soon as it enters proximity, about 6 mm (0.24 inch), above the tablet’s active area.
This allows you to position the screen cursor or use the side switch without touching the pen tip to the
tablet. You can also trace a drawing or photograph as long as the pen tip remains within proximity height.
Place a picture under the tablet overlay and try tracing it from within one of your graphics applications.
6 mm (0.24 inch)
Contents
Index
USING INTUOS
Page 37
DRAWING WITH PRESSURE
The Intuos Pen responds to the nuance and inflection of your hand movements, enabling you to create
natural-looking pen and brush strokes. Many graphics applications have drawing tools that respond to the
pressure you place on the pen. For example, in some drawing programs sliders are used to vary brush
characteristics (width, color, and opacity). These characteristics can be controlled much better by the
Intuos Pen’s pressure-sensitivity. You can vary line width, blend colors, and change opacity with the
pressure you exert upon the pen.
To draw with pressure-sensitivity, select a pressure-sensitive tool from your application’s tool palette.
Draw along the surface of the tablet while applying various amounts of pressure downward on the tip of
the Intuos Pen. Press hard for thick lines or dense color. Press gently for thin lines or softer color.
To adjust the tip feel, see Adjusting Tip Feel.
Visit our web site for a list of graphics applications that support pressure. See Product Information.
Contents
Index
USING INTUOS
Page 38
DRAWING WITH TILT
As with pressure, the tablet recognizes when you tilt the pen or airbrush from vertical to inclined positions.
In some drawing applications, tilt can be used to control line shape and thickness. This is like working with
an airbrush where tilt can be used to make a line thin when the tool is vertical, or wide when the tool is
tilted. In other applications, you can adjust tilt to define brush characteristics such as width, color and
opacity.
To test tilt, draw a curve in a graphics application (such as Painter) that supports tilt. Be sure that the tilt
function in your application is active, then change the tilt of the pen as you draw to vary the shape and
thickness of the brush stroke.
As an example, with the Wacom PenTools Virtual Airbrush
Photoshop plug-in, tilting the pen results in an elongated
pattern. This simulates the effects of an airbrush spray that is
angled away from the paint surface.
To adjust how much you must tilt the pen to produce a desired tilt effect in your application, see
Customizing Tilt Sensitivity.
Not all applications support tilt. To see a list of applications which currently support this feature, visit our
web site. See Product Information.

ERASING
The eraser on the Intuos Pen works like the eraser on a pencil. In graphics applications that support the
pen’s eraser, you can erase intuitively and naturally. When you use the pen’s eraser, the application will
automatically switch to the eraser tool. You can also use the eraser in many standard office applications.
The eraser will not be pressure sensitive, but you can use it to select and delete text or spreadsheet cells.
Try your eraser by opening Windows Notepad and typing a few words. Use the eraser to select the text.
When you lift the eraser, the text will be erased. For further information on using your eraser, see
Adjusting Eraser Feel.
Visit our web site for a list of graphics applications that support the eraser (see Product Information). If the
eraser is not supported in an application, you can still use the eraser for navigating and drawing.

EYE-HAND COORDINATION EXERCISE
If you use a mouse, you may remember how long it took to get used to positioning the screen cursor. Your
Intuos Pen, likewise, will take a bit of practice to master the technique of positioning the screen cursor in
Pen Mode. This may seem difficult at first, but it is more natural and faster than in Mouse Mode.
This exercise is designed to retrain your eye-hand coordination for using the Intuos Pen:
1. Open any graphics application. Use the line tool to draw a rectangular grid with line spacings of about
20-25 mm (3/4 to 1 inch). (You can use your traditional mouse to do this.)
2. Choose a free-hand tool in your application and use the Intuos Pen to draw a dot at each grid
intersection.
3. Draw an X at each grid intersection.
4. Now draw a circle around each intersection. Your screen should look like this:
5. Clear your screen and make a simple drawing of your own. The more you use your Intuos Pen, the
easier drawing and navigation will become. Soon, you may want to put your mouse away altogether.

USING THE AIRBRUSH
The Intuos Airbrush is similar to the Intuos Pen, but also includes a fingerwheel for an additional degree of
control. With proper software support, you can simulate realistic airbrushing. For example, tilting the
Intuos Airbrush can cause the spray pattern to elongate and feather out. Rolling the fingerwheel can
adjust the spray intensity, and pressure on the tip can control the brush size.
Pointing, Clicking, Erasing, and Proximity are similar to the pen. For additional information, refer to
Holding the Airbrush and Using the Pen.
Important: When the airbrush is not in use, place it in the Intuos pen stand or lay it flat on your
desk. To maintain the sensitivity of your airbrush tip, do not store the airbrush in a container where
it will rest on its tip.
Leaving an Intuos tool on the tablet may interfere with screen cursor positioning when using other
pointing devices.
Contents
Index
USING INTUOS
Page 42
HOLDING THE AIRBRUSH
Hold the airbrush with your thumb and middle finger. The fingerwheel should be in a convenient location
for you to roll it with your index finger. Tilt the airbrush to find a comfortable position that allows you to
paint and draw with pressure-sensitivity.
The side switch is set for a right-click by default.
Roll the fingerwheel backwards to increase ink flow
or brush size, and forward to reduce it.
Your index finger should operate the wheel
independently of the pressure you apply to the tip.
To customize the fingerwheel, see Airbrush Settings.
Visit Wacom’s web site to learn which applications currently support the airbrush fingerwheel.

USING THE 4D MOUSE
The Intuos 4D Mouse is a cordless, batteryless mouse that works on any Intuos tablet. By default, you
can position the screen cursor like you do with a regular mouse (MOUSE MODE). By choosing PEN MODE
in the MAPPING tab, you can position and navigate the screen cursor like you do with the Intuos Pen. By
default, the thumbwheel emulates the Microsoft IntelliMouse. The 4D Mouse also supports axial rotation.
In applications that support device rotation, simply turn the 4D Mouse on the tablet to control the rotation
parameter.
The rear buttons are set to left double-click by default.
Important: When the
4D Mouse is not in
use, place it on your
desk. Leaving an
Intuos tool on the
tablet may interfere
with screen cursor
positioning when
using other pointing
devices.
The front button opposite
the thumbwheel is set to
right-click by default.
The middle button is set to perform
a middle-click by default.
The front button nearest the thumbwheel
is set to left-click by default.
Move on to the next section to learn about Setting Rightor Left-Handed Operation. To learn how to program
buttons, see Customizing the 4D Mouse and Lens Cursor.

SETTING RIGHT- OR LEFT-HANDED OPERATION
The 4D Mouse can be set for either right- or left-handed use. Set the mouse so that the thumbwheel is
exposed on the side next to your thumb—the button settings will automatically be reconfigured. The
default setting is for the left-click button to be under your index finger. Refer to Customizing the 4D Mouse
and Lens Cursor.
To change the handedness configuration:
1 Grasp the upper portion of the 4D Mouse in one hand and face the bottom portion toward you. Viewed from the
bottom, a thumbwheel is visible at both sides of the body. A pair of handling edges are on the left and right, below
the thumbwheel.
2
With your other hand, grasp the lower portion of the 4D Mouse by the handling edges. Carefully pull the two halves
slightly apart (about 5 mm, or 1/4 of an inch).
3
4
Rock the lower portion of the 4D Mouse to the other side so that the opposite thumbwheel is exposed.
Relax your grip, allowing the halves to pull back together. You may need to gently press the two halves so they will
properly seat. When repositioned, the 4D Mouse will mirror its initial state.
Pull up.
Then move over.

USING THE 4D MOUSE THUMBWHEEL
To use the thumbwheel, place your hand on the 4D Mouse with your thumb on the wheel. Press lightly on
the thumbwheel and roll it forward or backward. By default, the thumbwheel emulates the roller on the
Microsoft IntelliMouse; moving the thumbwheel scrolls through documents in applications that support the
IntelliMouse. When you release the thumbwheel, it springs back to the neutral position, leaving the
scrolled list at the position you have scrolled to.

USING THE LENS CURSOR
The Intuos Lens Cursor is an ergonomic input device that allows you to enter precise coordinate position
information into your computer. The Lens Cursor reports the position of the cross-hair to the computer.
This makes the Lens Cursor especially useful for tracing and digitizing drawings into graphics and CAD
applications. By default, the Lens Cursor is set to MOUSE MODE, which means you can position the screen
cursor like you do with a regular mouse. When using the Lens Cursor to digitize a drawing, the Lens
Cursor must be set to PEN MODE.
Rotate lens for best viewing angle.

CARING FOR YOUR TOOLS AND TABLET
Keep your Intuos tools and tablet surface clean. Dust and dirt particles can stick to your Intuos tools and
cause wear to the tablet surface. Regular cleaning with a soft, damp cloth will help prolong the life of your
tablet surface and Intuos tools. You can also use a very mild soap diluted with water. Do not use volatile
liquids, such as paint thinner or benzene, because they may damage the plastic case.
Keep your tablet and tools in a clean, dry place and avoid extremes in temperature. Room temperature is
best. Also, your Intuos tools and tablet are not made to come apart. Twisting the pen case can break the
pen. Taking apart the product will void your warranty.
Important: When the pen or airbrush are not in use, place them in the Intuos pen stand or lay them
flat on your desk. To maintain the sensitivity of your pen or airbrush tip, do not store the tools in a
container where they will rest on their tip.
Contents

USING INTUOS
Page 48
REPLACING THE PEN OR AIRBRUSH TIP
The tip (nib) will wear with normal use. When the nib gets too short or develops a flat point, you can
replace it with the extra nib that came with your tool.
1. Clasp the old nib with a tweezer, needle-nosed plier, or similar instrument and pull it straight out of the
pen or airbrush.
2. Slide the end of the new nib straight into the barrel of the pen or airbrush. Firmly push the nib until it
stops.
To order replacement parts, refer to Other Parts and Accessories.

CUSTOMIZING TILT SENSITIVITY
To adjust the tilt sensitivity of your Intuos Pen or Airbrush, select the TILT tab. Tilt sensitivity controls how
far you have to tilt the tool to produce the maximum tilt effect in your application. You need to tilt the pen
less at high sensitivity than at low sensitivity to get the full tilt value reported to your application. Like
pressure-sensitivity, tilt can be assigned to control brush characteristics. Your tilt setting applies to both
the tip and eraser of your pen or airbrush.
Drag the slider to increase or decrease pen tilt sensitivity. The default setting is LESS.
The tilt display graphically shows the
reported tilt angle of your pen or
airbrush.
Place your pen or airbrush vertically on
the tablet, and tilt it from side to side
and forward and backward. The
graphic lever moves to indicate the
amount and direction of tilt reported to
the application.
Note: Tilt is direction-sensitive and can
be used in some applications to control
brush orientation.
Visit Wacom’s web site for a list of applications that currently support tilt. See Product Information.

Positioning Mode
The POSITIONING MODE controls how the screen cursor moves.
•
In PEN MODE, wherever you place an Intuos tool on the tablet, the cursor jumps to the corresponding
point on the screen. This is the default setting for the Intuos Pen and Airbrush, and is required for
tracing.
•
In MOUSE MODE, the screen cursor is positioned like a mouse, requiring a “pick up and roll” action to
move the cursor on the screen. This is the default setting for the 4D Mouse and Lens Cursor.
If you are working with multiple tools, you may want to set your pen or airbrush to PEN MODE for drawing,
and set your 4D Mouse to MOUSE MODE for navigation.
Note: You can also switch between PEN MODE and MOUSE MODE by clicking on the appropriate tablet
button, or by using the screen Pop-up Menu. See Customizing Tablet Buttons and Customizing the Popup Menu for more information.

Orientation
If you want the tablet menu buttons on the side or the bottom of your tablet, or if you are working with a tall
monitor, you can rotate the tablet to one of the following orientations:
•
LANDSCAPE. Tablet orientation is horizontal, with tablet buttons at the top. This is the default setting.
•
PORTRAIT. Rotate the tablet 90 degrees clockwise from landscape orientation. The tablet orientation
will be vertical, with the tablet buttons on the right side.
•
LANDSCAPE FLIPPED. Rotate the tablet 180 degrees from landscape orientation. The tablet will be
upside down, with the tablet buttons near the bottom.
•
PORTRAIT FLIPPED. Rotate the tablet 90 degrees counter-clockwise from landscape orientation.
The tablet orientation will be vertical with the tablet buttons on the left side.
After making changes, verify you have the correct setting for your tablet orientation. Do this by moving
your tool “up” on the tablet—the cursor should move up as well.
Note: The orientation you select applies to all tools and applications.

Programming the 4D Mouse and Lens Cursor
As with the Intuos Pen and Airbrush, you can select a function to perform for each button from the button
pull-down menus. Refer to Button Functions for a description of the available options.
The 4D Mouse and Lens Cursor buttons are chordable; you can press two or more buttons simultaneously
and the functions will occur. For example, if you program one button to simulate the CTRL key and another
to simulate a Z keystroke, when you press both buttons a CTRL+Z is simulated.
Using Your 4D Mouse as a 15-Button Mouse
You can transform your 4D Mouse into a 15 button mouse. In that configuration, each button can be
customized to perform three different functions depending on the thumbwheel position. To program the
additional button settings:
1. Choose the THUMBWHEEL tab and select 15-BUTTON 4D MOUSE.
2. Return to the TOOL BUTTONS tab—the 15 button 4D Mouse settings will be enabled.
3. Select FORWARD, CENTER, or BACK to choose between the three sets of button functions. The options
displayed in the button pull-down menus will change as you select between the radio buttons. Define
functions for each of the five buttons in the following manner:
• Select FORWARD, then choose a button option from the pull-down menu(s).
• Select CENTER, then choose a button option from the pull-down menu(s).
• Select BACK, then choose a button option from the pull-down menu(s).
To activate an alternate button function, push the thumbwheel forward or backward, respectively, before

Creating a Button Box
If you are working on an Intuos 6x8 or larger tablet and you have a 4D Mouse or Lens Cursor, plus at least
one other tool (a pen, for example), you might consider using the 4D Mouse as a Button Box. This gives
you the freedom to draw with the pen without having to reach for the keyboard to enter a keystroke.
Instead, you might press the 4D Mouse or Lens Cursor buttons to perform defined keystroke functions.
Note that if you use your 4D Mouse or Lens Cursor as a Button Box, it must remain on the tablet’s active
area to function.
To configure your 4D Mouse or Lens Cursor as a Button Box, open the TOOL BUTTONS tab and select USE
BUTTONS ONLY. A warning message reminds you that you will no longer be able to navigate with your
4D Mouse or Lens Cursor; if you select this option you will need to use another input device to move the
screen cursor. In this configuration, all button functions are reported to the application, but the Button Box
does not move the screen cursor.

other tools, even if they are identical devices.
There are several ways to add Intuos tools to the TOOL LIST:
•
When you use an Intuos tool on the tablet for the first time, it will automatically function with the
appropriate default settings. You can customize the tool by opening the Wacom control panel,
changing tab settings, and then clicking OK to save your changes and permanently add the tool to the

If you have two identical Intuos tools, they will appear as numbered devices in the TOOL LIST. You can give
each tool a different name. For example, you might name one “Drawing Pen” and the other “Paint Brush”.
To change the tool names, select RENAME TOOL... from the EDIT pull-down menu.
Note: If you have two or more Intuos pens, use the colored decals supplied with each Intuos Pen to
identify them from one another. (Otherwise, they will look the same but may act differently.)
To use the same custom settings with two tools, click the Copy Settings To... button and choose the

PRESSURE CURVE ADJUSTMENT
Changing the shape of the pressure curve will change the feel of the pen tip. A pressure curve that
increases quickly makes the tip feel more sensitive to changes in force.
The control points at each end of the pressure curve set the minimum and maximum amount of force your
pen or airbrush will respond to. If you have a soft touch and want to achieve full pressure without having to
apply full force to your pen, decrease the maximum force level. You can apply less force to your pen and
still have the effects of full pressure. The default for maximum force is 100%.
To change curve shape,
drag the control point to
a new position.
Enter a value from 20 to 100%, or
drag the MAXIMUM TIP FORCE control
to set the maximum force your pen
tip will respond to.
Enter a value from 0 to 80%, or drag the
MINIMUM TIP FORCE control to set the
minimum force that will register pressure.

USING DUALTRACK
All Intuos tablets (except the 4x5 tablet) support the concurrent use of two Intuos tools on a tablet.
This feature is called DualTrack.
DualTrack will function according to how an application implements support for two input tools. In some
applications, two-handed input is used to rotate, size, and position an object by controlling two handles on
the object simultaneously.
In applications that do not support positional data from two Intuos tools, the first tool placed on the tablet
will control the screen cursor and the second tool will function as a Button Box. If you are using a graphics
program, for example, you can set one of the 4D Mouse buttons to simulate the SHIFT key to constrain
lines while drawing. If you place the 4D Mouse on the tablet’s active area while using the pen, the
4D Mouse will not control the screen cursor—only the buttons will function. If you press the 4D Mouse
button assigned to the SHIFT function while drawing with the Intuos Pen, the line will be constrained as
long as the 4D Mouse button is pressed.
Note: DualTrack is the default setting for the tablet. When STANDARD MODE is selected in the TABLET
MODE or CoNNECTION tab, DualTrack is on.
Visit our web site for a list of applications that support DualTrack. See Product Information.

INSTALLING MULTIPLE TABLETS
If multiple Wacom tablets are installed on a single computer when the Wacom control panel is opened, a
TABLET LIST is displayed above the APPLICATION LIST. The TABLET LIST contains an icon for each installed
tablet, and allows you to select the tablet for which your changes will apply.
Select a tablet icon for which to
customize application and tool
settings.
To add a new tablet, connect it to your computer.
•
For USB tablets, the system searches the USB ports. When the new tablet is found, it is automatically
initialized. Note that you may be prompted to insert your Intuos CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.
•
For serial tablets, if your Windows system supports “plug and play”, the system searches the serial
ports. If the new tablet is found, it is automatically initialized. Otherwise, from the control panel’s ADD
menu, choose TABLET.... When the Add Tablet dialog box appears, click the ADD SERIAL... button and
follow the prompts.
•
If multiple tablets are installed, the tablet used to open the Wacom control panel is selected as the
default tablet.

WORKING WITH AUTOCAD
AutoCAD for Windows can support the Intuos tablet as a System Pointing Device or as a Wintab
Compatible Digitizer. By default, AutoCAD is configured to use Intuos as a System Pointing Device. If you
will be using Intuos with tablet menus or to digitize drawings to proper scale, you will need to follow the
procedures below.
CONFIGURING FOR A WINTAB COMPATIBLE DIGITIZER
For AutoCAD Release 2000:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Start AutoCAD. From the DRAWING EDITOR, open the TOOLS menu and select OPTIONS.
From the OPTIONS window, select the SYSTEM tab.
Under CURRENT POINTING DEVICE, select the Wintab compatible digitizer option.
Decide from which device AutoCAD will accept input. Choose an option from the ACCEPT INPUT FROM
section:
• DIGITIZER ONLY. The AutoCAD drawing editor only accepts input from Intuos.
• DIGITIZER AND MOUSE. The AutoCAD drawing editor accepts input from both Intuos and your
mouse.
5. Click OK to close the OPTIONS window.

CONFIGURING TABLET MENUS AND SCREEN POINTING AREAS
A screen pointing area is a rectangular region on the tablet surface where the tablet acts like a system
mouse. When the pointer is within a screen pointing area, the tablet can access windows, menus, and
other applications outside AutoCAD’s drawing area. You can configure both a fixed and floating screen
pointing area.
Before you configure the tablet, its entire surface is the fixed screen pointing area. AutoCAD recommends
that you change the size of the fixed screen pointing area so that a small screen area on your tablet maps
to the entire monitor screen. AutoCAD also recommends that you select the default tablet menus,
columns, and rows they provide.
After you configure the tablet menus, AutoCAD prompts you for the fixed and floating screen pointing
areas. This allows you to designate a tablet area as a Windows system pointer.
The fixed screen pointing area is disabled when you digitize points into AutoCAD with TABLET MODE ON.
This is due to the fixed correspondence between the tablet and AutoCAD’s drawing area. To access
menus from the tablet, you must use the floating screen pointing area. This allows you to access a menu
from anywhere on the tablet surface, and to toggle it off when finished. You can define a tool button to
toggle the floating screen area on and off.
Important. The floating screen pointing area takes precedence over menu areas, TABLET MODE
ON, and the fixed screen pointing area.

1. From the DRAWING EDITOR, open the TOOLS menu (OPTIONS menu for Release 13).
2. Select TABLET, and then CONFIGURE.
3. Define tablet menu areas. Follow the prompts at the bottom of the AUTOCAD DRAWING EDITOR.
Type the number of tablet menu areas you want (0-4) and press ENTER. If you do not want to use a
menu template, type 0 (zero). Digitize the upper-left, lower-left, and lower-right corners of the menu
area and then press ENTER. Next, enter the number of columns and press ENTER. Now enter the
number of rows and press ENTER. Repeat for each menu area.
4. Define the fixed screen pointing area. By default, the entire tablet is a fixed screen pointing area.
If you are using a menu template, you should re-specify the fixed screen pointing area to match the
template. Continue to follow the prompts at the bottom of the AUTOCAD DRAWING EDITOR screen.
5. Define the floating screen pointing area—it allows you to access all areas of the screen. The floating
screen pointing area takes precedence over TABLET MODE ON, the fixed screen pointing area, and the
menu areas. Continue to follow the prompts at the bottom of the AUTOCAD DRAWING EDITOR screen.

Calibrating Intuos for AutoCAD in Windows
If you are using Intuos to digitize a drawing, you will need to calibrate Intuos with the paper drawing’s
coordinate system. The calibration allows you to digitize points from the paper drawing into the
appropriate coordinate system of your drawing file.
1. From the DRAWING EDITOR, open the TOOLS menu (OPTIONS menu for Release 13).
2. Choose the TABLET and CALIBRATE options, then:
• Digitize point #1 on the paper drawing. Then enter the xy coordinate from the paper drawing at the
digitized point.
• Digitize point #2 on the paper drawing. Then enter the xy coordinate from the paper drawing at the
digitized point.
• Digitize more points if necessary. More than four points may take more time than expected for
AutoCAD to compute the best-fitting projective transformation.
3. Press ENTER when you are done.
When Intuos has been configured as a digitizer and calibrated, you can use CTRL+T to toggle between
using Intuos as a digitizer and as a Windows system pointer.

mouse operations. The easy-to-use DuoSwitch gives you two programmable switch functions to simulate
mouse actions or keyboard keys. The pressure-sensitive pen has an ergonomic, waisted grip area,
optimum weight and balance, and superior tip sensitivity, making it the most natural freehand tool.
Intuos Inking Pen This pen was created to provide immediate feedback on what you are drawing at your
pen tip as well as on your computer screen. The pressure-sensitive pen comes with inking cartridges and
two polyacetal tips for inkless drawing.
Intuos Stroke Pen This pen was designed for the artist who requires a combination of visual and tactile
feedback. The tip retracts slightly as the pen is pressed.
Airbrush
Intuos Airbrush The first true computer airbrush, the pressure-sensitive Intuos Airbrush incorporates a
pressure-sensitive tip and eraser, tilt sensitivity, and a fingerwheel that provides an additional degree of
control over the application of digital paint.

4D Mouse
Intuos 4D Mouse With simultaneous x/y/z axis manipulation and rotation, the capabilities of the
4D Mouse are unlike any other input device. Use the thumbwheel to smoothly pan and zoom at the same
time. Orient a 3D object with pitch, yaw, and roll control. Smoothly shuttle through video or film with a
nudge from your thumb, or just use it as a supercharged mouse. It converts easily to left- or right-handed
use and conforms naturally to the tilt of your hand.
Lens Cursor
Intuos Lens Cursor The Lens Cursor is a precise coordinate position input tool. It is ideal for tracing and
digitizing drawings, for CAD processes, or for other vector design applications where the precise input of
coordinate information is critical. The moveable lens can be swung from left to right for comfortable
positioning while you work.

GLOSSARY
Active area. The drawing area of the tablet where your Intuos tools are detected.
Application-specific settings. Intuos tool and tablet settings that have been customized for individual
applications. The control panel enables you to program a tool to behave uniquely in different applications.
Your application-specific settings are in effect whenever you use the application.
Aspect. The ratio between the vertical and horizontal dimension of the tablet or display. The ASPECT
setting is located on the MAPPING tab, and defines how the tablet area is mapped to the display area.
This setting determines if the aspect of the tablet and display are the same.
Click force. The amount of force you must apply to your Intuos Pen or Airbrush tip for a click to occur.
DOS shell. A DOS session that is running under the Windows operating system.
Double-click assist. A control panel option that makes it easier to double-click. When selected, you can
customize the double-click speed and distance.
Double-click distance. The maximum distance (in screen pixels) that the cursor can move between
clicks and still be accepted as a double-click. Increasing the double-click distance makes double-clicking
easier, but may cause a delay in brush strokes in some graphics applications.

Double-click speed. The maximum time that can pass between clicks and still be accepted as a doubleclick. Increasing the double-click time makes double-clicking easier.
Eraser-aware application. A software application that has built-in support for the Intuos eraser. These
applications take advantage of the eraser in different ways, depending on what makes sense for the
application.
Fingerwheel. The control wheel on the barrel of the Intuos Airbrush.
Landscape. A tablet ORIENTATION setting. In landscape orientation, the tablet buttons are at the top.
Rectangular tablets will be in a horizontal position. See also portrait.
Lens Cursor. An input device with programmable buttons and cross-hair for entering precise coordinate
position information.
Mapping. The relationship between your Intuos tool position on the tablet and the cursor position on the
monitor screen.
Modifier. Modifier keys include SHIFT, ALT, and CTRL. You can customize your Intuos tool to simulate a
modifier key.
Mouse Mode. A method for positioning the screen cursor. When you place an Intuos tool on the tablet,
you can navigate the screen cursor like a mouse. This is known as relative positioning. See also Pen
Mode.

Nib. The replaceable tip of the Intuos Pen or Airbrush.
Pen Mode. A method of positioning the screen cursor. Wherever you place your Intuos tool on the tablet,
the screen cursor will be at that same corresponding point on the screen. This is known as absolute
positioning, and allows you to position the screen cursor without having to first find it and then move it with
a “pick up and roll” action. See also Mouse Mode.
Pixel. The smallest unit of measure on your monitor screen.
Pop-up Menu. A window that displays a list of keystroke functions and mapping options. You can
customize your tool buttons, 4D Mouse buttons, or Tablet buttons to display this menu.
Portrait. A tablet ORIENTATION setting. In portrait orientation, the tablet buttons are on the side.
Rectangular tablets will be in a vertical position. See also landscape.
Pressure sensitive. A quality of the Intuos Pen and Airbrush tip and eraser that senses the amount of
pressure being applied. This is used to create natural-looking pen, brush, and eraser strokes in
applications that are pressure-sensitive.
Pressure-sensitive application. Any application that supports pressure-sensitive input.
Proximity. The height (6 mm (0.24 inch)) above the tablet’s active area where the Intuos tools are
detected.
QuickPoint. The QUICKPOINT MODE divides the tablet into two independent areas: a large area for
drawing and a small area for quick navigation.

Screen cursor. The pointer on the display screen. Screen cursors come in different shapes (such as an
I-beam, arrow, or box), depending on which application you are running.
Thumbwheel. The wheel on the side of the Intuos 4D Mouse that gives you an additional control variable
for your work. You can customize the functions and sensitivity of the thumbwheel in the control panel.
Tilt sensitive. A quality of the Intuos Pen and Airbrush tip and eraser that senses the amount of tilt
between the tool and tablet. This is used to create natural-looking pen, brush, and eraser strokes in
applications that are tilt-sensitive.
Tool ID. A feature that makes each Intuos tool unique. If you are working with two identical pens, the
tablet will recognize each one as a separate tool. This is particularly useful if you have customized each
pen differently.
Tracking speed. A setting that allows you to adjust the speed at which your screen cursor moves when
your Intuos tool is in Mouse Mode.
USB. Universal Serial Bus. A hardware interface standard for connecting computer peripheral devices.
USB ports support hot-plugging, which allows you to connect or disconnect a USB device without turning
off your computer.
Wintab. An interface standard used by Windows applications for receiving tablet information.
Intuos supports all Wintab-compatible applications under Windows.
