INSTALLING THE DRIVER
On Windows 8, Windows 7 and Vista operating systems, the driver installs when Intuos is connected to
your computer for the first time. The connection is indicated when the Power LED lights.
The driver is also available from the Installation CD, or as a download from the Support area of the Wacom
website.
For the Mac operating system, you will need to install the driver from the CD, or download and install it
from the Wacom website.
Note: Your Intuos will not work without the driver. Make sure to install the driver to use your tablet.
To install the driver:
1. Save your work and close all open applications.
2. Temporarily disable any virus protection programs.
3. Install the driver:
•
For Windows 8, Windows 7, or Vista, select the driver installation option that appears after the
Intuos and your computer are connected.The driver will be downloaded and installed from the
Wacom website.
You may also access the driver from the CD, or download it from the Wacom website Support area.
•
For Mac OS, insert the Installation CD into your computer’s CD-ROM drive. If the software installer
menu does not display, double-click the INSTALL or STARTUP icon shown on the CD. You may also
download the driver manually from the Wacom website Support area.
4. Follow the prompts to install the driver software.
5. Reactivate your virus protection program.
6. After completing the software installation, make sure you can use your pen on the Intuos to move the
screen cursor.
When you place the pen tip on or close to the active area, the screen cursor should immediately jump
to a corresponding position approximately beneath the pen tip. Lift the pen tip and place it in a different
location. The screen cursor should again jump to the new position.
7. Check the Notes linked to the driver download page for updated information. Review the Important
Product Information document located on the Installation CD for cautions and warnings. If you have
trouble installing the driver, see Troubleshooting.
Notes:
User-specific preferences are supported. After logging on, each user can customize their personal
settings in the Wacom Tablet control panel. Switching to another user (either by logging on, or fast
user switching methods) will load the settings for that user.
If you lose cursor control, the preferences may be corrupted. See Managing preferences to delete
the current preference settings and return the Intuos to its factory default condition.
Driver installation automatically activates the pen input functions available in Microsoft Windows 8
and Windows 7 (except for Windows 7 Starter and Home Basic). See Pen and digital ink capabilities
in Windows.
To download a new software driver (when available) from the Internet, see Obtaining software
updates.
To uninstall the software driver, see Uninstalling Intuos.

THE TABLET ACTIVE AREA
The tablet active area is the area of your Intuos tablet that senses pen input or touch.
Touch is ignored whenever the pen tip or eraser is within the proximity range of the tablet. Lift the pen and your hand
away from the tablet active area to enable touch.
Wherever you place the pen on the tablet, the screen pointer will jump to the corresponding point on the screen.
The screen pointer indicates pen position, and follows the movement of the pen across the tablet surface.
Learn about using the Grip Pen.
Note: The active area is a mapped representation of your computer screen(s). By default it uses the entire screen, or
all screens if you have multiple displays. You can customize the mapping relationship for pen input by setting
the Tablet to screen mapping.
Learn about the touch experience with Intuos. Also see the Wacom Gesture Guide for Windows and Mac at
www.wacom.com/en/support/manuals.

WORKING WITH MULTIPLE MONITORS
If you are using more than one monitor, Intuos will map to the monitors based on how they are configured
in the display properties control panel.
•
If more than one monitor is in use and you are in extended monitor mode, the tablet maps to all
monitors as if they were one large display.
Monitor 1
Monitor 2
Example of tablet mapping to the entire system desktop,
which is displayed on two monitors.
•
If your monitors are in mirror mode (both monitors display the same content), the tablet maps to the
entire space on each monitor and the screen cursor is displayed on each monitor simultaneously.
See your hardware and operating system documentation for details on configuring your computer and
operating system for use with multiple monitors.
Tips:
•
You can customize the tablet to map to a single monitor or to a portion of the monitor area.
See Tablet to screen mapping.
•
When your system is configured with multiple monitors, you can assign the DISPLAY TOGGLE function
to an ExpressKey. This enables you to toggle the current tablet mapping and screen cursor between
the primary display and your other monitors. See working with Display Toggle.
CONTROL PANEL BASICS
After mastering the basics of using your Intuos tablet, you may want to customize the way touch or pen
input works. The Wacom Tablet control panel is where you customize your Intuos tablet settings.

USING YOUR INTUOS
If you are new to using the Intuos, read the following sections. See also the touch experience with Intuos.
Important: Use only a compatible Wacom pen, such as the pen that shipped with your product, or a
Wacom accessory tool specified for use with Intuos. Other pens may not function properly.
See Ordering parts and accessories.
USING THE PEN
The Intuos pen senses the amount of pressure you apply to the pen.
There are four basic techniques for using the pen on the active area of the tablet: pointing, clicking, doubleclicking, and dragging. If you are unfamiliar with using the pen, try the exercises on the following pages.
See The tablet active area.
Note: The pen disengages touch whenever the pen tip or eraser is within the proximity range. Proximity
range is within approximately 14 mm (0.5 inch) of the tablet surface.
Lift the pen and your hand away from the tablet active area to enable touch.
Use the slider switch on the back corner of the Intuos to enable or disable touch.

HOLDING THE PEN
Hold the Intuos Pen as you would a normal pen or pencil. Adjust your grip so that the side switch is in a
convenient location where you can easily toggle it with your thumb or forefinger. Be careful not to
accidentally press the switch while drawing or positioning with the pen. Tilt the pen in any way that feels
most comfortable.
Position for drawing
Position for erasing
Important:
• When not in use, place the pen in the pen holder (loop), or
lay it flat on your desk. To maintain the sensitivity of your
pen, do not store the pen where it will rest on its tip or
eraser.
• Leaving an Intuos tool on the tablet may interfere with
screen cursor positioning when using other pointing
devices, or may prevent your computer from going to sleep.

POSITIONING
To position the screen cursor, move the pen slightly above the active area without touching the screen
surface. Press the pen tip on the screen to make a selection.
CLICKING
Tap the screen once with the pen tip, or touch it to the screen with enough pressure to register a click.
To double click, press the upper side switch (when set to DOUBLE CLICK), or quickly tap the screen twice in
the same place with the pen tip.
ERASING
In supported applications the pen eraser works like the eraser on a pencil.
Visit the Wacom website to learn about applications that support the eraser. See Product information. If the
eraser is not supported in an application, you can still use it for positioning, drawing, or annotation.
DRAGGING
Select an object, then slide the pen tip across the screen to move the object.
WORKING WITH PRESSURE SENSITIVITY
The pen responds to the nuance and inflection of your hand movements, enabling you to create naturallooking pen and brush strokes within applications that support this feature.
To draw, ink, or write with pressure sensitivity, move the pen inside the active area while applying various
amounts of pressure downward on the tip of the pen. Press hard for thick lines or dense color. Press gently
for thin lines or softer color. Some applications require that you first select a pressure-sensitive tool from
the application tool palette. To adjust tip feel, see Adjusting tip feel and double-click.
Visit the Wacom website to learn about applications that support pressure. See Product information.

USING THE SIDE SWITCH
The pen side switch has two customizable functions that can be selected by rocking the switch in either
direction. You can use the switch whenever the pen tip is within approximately 14 mm (0.5 inch) of the
tablet active area. You do not have to touch the pen tip to the tablet in order to use the switch.
The default switch positions are:
Upper:
DOUBLE CLICK
Lower:
RIGHT CLICK
Press the upper switch to double-click. This is easier than tapping twice with the pen tip.
Press the lower switch to right-click and bring up application-specific or icon-specific menus.
Tip: To position a document or image in any direction within the active window, set a switch function to PAN/
SCROLL, then press the pen button and move the pen tip across the tablet. As you move the pen tip, the
document or image follows the direction of pen movement on the tablet. Release the pen button or lift the
pen tip from the tablet surface when done.
In some application windows the document will precisely follow the screen cursor as you move the pen tip.
In others it will simply move in the same general direction as the screen cursor.
USING THE EXPRESSKEYS
You can use the ExpressKeys to:
•
Set a key to a commonly used keyboard shortcut.
•
Set a key to launch a commonly used file or application.
•
If you prefer not to use the side switches on your Grip Pen, set a key to right- or double-click.
•
Choose from any of the other available functions.
Important: Some applications can override and control the ExpressKey functions. For details, see
Using applications integrated for tablet control.
Use the Wacom Tablet control panel to customize the ExpressKey options.See Control panel overview.

THE INTUOS MULTI-TOUCH EXPERIENCE
Intuos is designed to enhance the way you work. Touch enables you to interact with a computer using only
your fingertips on the Intuos tablet.
You can use touch on Intuos as you would on any other Mac or Windows device, such as phones,
trackpads, and notebooks. A few touch gestures differ on the Windows and Mac operating systems.
To enable or disable touch, move the slider on the top right corner of the Intuos to the opposite position
(see Your Intuos tablet).
To view the Wacom Gesture Guide for Windows and Mac gestures, go to www.wacom.com/en/support/
manuals.
Touch is activated whenever you touch the tablet active area.
•
When using touch, you can generally position your fingers as far apart as is comfortable. However,
placing your fingers too closely together may be interpreted by the tablet as input from a single finger,
or the tablet may confuse which finger initiated or performed an action or gesture. Your fingers must
remain within the active area.
•
Experiment with touch to see what works best for you. Take care to prevent accidental touches on the
tablet when making gestures. For example, if your small finger or the palm of your hand touches the
active area of the tablet when zooming or scrolling, then you may trigger an unanticipated right-click.
Note: For tablet models that support both pen input and touch, the pen disengages touch whenever the
pen tip or eraser is within the tablet proximity range. Lift the pen and your hand away from the tablet
active area to enable touch.

NAVIGATING WITH TOUCH
The touch feature of your Intuos touch tablet enables you to control a computer using only your fingertips
on the tablet surface. See The tablet active area.
Touch is enabled or disabled using the slider switch (toggle) on the upper right corner of the tablet.
•
Use basic actions to navigate and perform typical mouse operations.
•
Use gestures to scroll, zoom, rotate, and perform other functions. Some gestures may provide a visual
cue on your display screen to indicate when the gesture has been recognized by Intuos.
Some functions, such as a right-click, can
be performed using different actions or
gestures.
Position the screen cursor over a touch
option to see a static image of that
function.
If you do not choose a specific option to
view, the control panel will display each
option sequentially, from top to bottom.
This option can also be changed by
assigning it to an ExpressKey.
See also Navigating with touch and
Using the Expresskey display.
You can also customize your ExpressKeys to perform some touch functions.

ADJUSTING TIP FEEL AND DOUBLE-CLICK
To adjust the feel and sensitivity of your pen and eraser, select the PEN tab.
TIP FEEL and ERASER FEEL customize the
amount of pressure needed to click, draw, ink,
or erase.
To create broad brush strokes or to click with a
light touch, use a SOFT tip setting. For
maximum control while drawing thin lines, use
a FIRM tip setting.
To set the double-click distance from the
tablet, use the Tip Double Click Distance
slider.
With your screen cursor positioned over an
empty area of the control panel, press down
on the tablet with the pen eraser. Use the
pressure bar to determine how hard you must
press on the eraser to reach maximum
pressure.
To set the functions for the eraser and side switch, select options from the dropdown menus beside the pen. The
selected function occurs when you bring the pen tip within 10 mm (0.4 inch) of the tablet surface without touching
the tablet and then press the upper or lower side switch.
Double-click on the pen tip to change the pen tip function. The tip must be set to CLICK in order to draw in most
graphics applications.
At least one tool button should be set to the CLICK function.
You can change how the side switch operates for right clicks or other click functions. See Using the side switch.
Tips:
•
Use a soft TIP FEEL for a wider range of pressure values in most pressure-sensitive applications.
•
In some applications a soft pressure setting can make the pen overreact so that slight pressure on the
pen will be magnified on the screen. If you experience this, try a firmer TIP FEEL setting.
•
A large double-click distance may cause a delay at the beginning of brush strokes in some drawing
applications. This may also cause a delay at the beginning of a drag action or inking stroke. If you
notice such effects, try setting a smaller double-click distance and using the side switch to doubleclick. You can also set an ExpressKey to double-click.

TABLET TO SCREEN MAPPING
Select the MAPPING tab to define the relationship between tool movement on the tablet surface and cursor
movement on the monitor screen.
By default the entire active area of the tablet maps to the entire monitor. If more than one monitor is in use,
the tablet will map to all monitors.
MODE options control how the screen
cursor moves.
• PEN MODE sets the cursor movement
to correspond with the position of
your pen on the tablet. Wherever you
place your pen on the tablet, the
cursor will jump to a corresponding
point on the screen. This is known as
absolute positioning and is the default
setting for the pen.
• MOUSE MODE enables you to move the
screen cursor with a “pick up and
slide” motion similar to using a
standard mouse.
SCREEN AREA: Select a Portion of
screen area for tablet to screen mapping.
TABLET AREA: Select a Portion of tablet
area for tablet to screen mapping.
The image dynamically updates to
illustrate the selected mapping
When FORCE PROPORTIONS is unchecked, the correct scale or proportions are not
maintained. The selected tablet area is mapped to the selected display area. Drawing a
circle on the tablet may create an ellipse on the display screen. This is the default setting for
all tools.
When FORCE PROPORTIONS is checked, the correct vertical and horizontal proportions are
maintained. Drawing a circle on the tablet results in a circle on the display screen.
Depending on your settings, some portions of the tablet active area may no longer be usable
when this option is selected.
Note: Although Intuos is optimized for use with 16 10 aspect ratio displays, the default
settings automatically adjust for use with other aspect ratio displays.

2. Press the power button on the Wacom wireless module. A wireless connection should be established
within 4 seconds. If not, the wireless module will turn off. If this should occur, see Wireless connection
problems.
3. Check the connection by using the pen on the tablet to move the screen cursor. See also Battery and
wireless connection status.
Intuos can operate wirelessly or in USB mode, but not both at the same time.
•
Wireless mode is activated when Intuos is properly configured for wireless operation and the USB cable
is disconnected. When the USB cable is disconnected, the tablet searches and connects to the
wireless receiver within 4 seconds. If the receiver is not found then the tablet enters sleep mode.
•
USB connection deactivates wireless mode, and activates USB mode.
Notes:
The wireless module and Wacom wireless receiver are factory paired and work together as a
discrete set. Pairing is not required.
Intuos can operate wirelessly for up to 10 meters (33 feet) away from your computer. It is not
necessary for Intuos to be “in sight” of the wireless receiver. The wireless module uses radiofrequency technology, which can pass through non-metallic objects like desks.
Interference from other devices (especially audio devices) or metallic objects located in or along the
line of sight can negatively impact the tablet performance and operating distance. If you experience
connection problems, see Optimizing the wireless connection.
When starting up your computer, wait until your operating system has completely loaded and then
turn on the wireless module (if not already on) to begin working wirelessly.
Important: The use of wireless devices is regulated in most countries. If Intuos is configured for
wireless operation and you will be traveling, check with the appropriate regulatory authority for any
restrictions that may apply to your product in the countries that you visit.

Products using wireless signals may interfere with the equipment on commercial aircraft, and
regulations require that all wireless devices be turned off when traveling in an airplane. Turn off the
Intuos tablet wireless signal by turning off or removing the wireless module (the Status LED will be
off) and DO NOT power on the wireless module during takeoff, transit, or landing.
Do not use Intuos wirelessly in a facility control system or any other environment that requires
extremely high reliability, or where the use of a wireless device may cause interference. Wireless
operation may interfere with or cause other electronic devices to malfunction, or other wireless
devices may interfere with or cause the tablet to malfunction. Where use of wireless products is
prohibited, power off or remove the wireless module (ensuring the wireless signal has been turned
off) to prevent the possibility of it interfering with or causing other electronic devices to malfunction.
Wacom does not accept any liability for direct or consequential damages. For details, please refer
to your Warranty, located within the Important Product Information document.
Power off your tablet in locations where/when electronic devices are not allowed. Because the
tablet may cause other electronic devices to malfunction in some locations where/when the use of
electronic devices is not allowed, such as within an airplane, be sure to turn off the tablet by
unplugging the USB connector from your computer.
OPTIMIZING THE WIRELESS CONNECTION
If your screen cursor lags behind the pen movement on the tablet or frequently “jumps” about, or if you see
excessive straight line segments when drawing in graphics applications, your wireless connection may not
be able to transmit all of the data from the tablet with the necessary speed. This may be caused by
interference from other radio sources, obstructions in the radio wave path, excessive distance from the
computer, or a combination of the above.
To improve the wireless connection and optimize tablet performance:
•
Remove any metallic objects that may be in the line of sight between Intuos and the Wacom wireless
receiver attached to your computer.
•
Try connecting the wireless receiver to a USB extension cable, and place it on your desktop or
somewhere in sight of Intuos.
•
Move the tablet closer to your computer.
•
Switch off any other devices operating in the 2.4 GHz radio spectrum, such as mobile telephones, etc.,
or move their antennas further away from your computer.

POWER SAVING FEATURES
When configured for wireless operation, Intuos uses a number of power saving features to conserve the
tablet battery charge and improve performance.
Power saving mode
Sleep mode
Tablet enters power saving mode after 2 minutes of no user input. The time
parameter can be adjusted in the Wacom Tablet control panel. See Battery and
wireless connection status.
Depending on your tablet model, wake from power saving mode by touching the
tablet, pressing an ExpressKey, or placing the pen in proximity.
Tablet enters sleep mode:
•
When there is no wireless connection for more than 4 seconds. For example,
you switch off the computer, move the tablet out of range, or unplug the
wireless receiver. To resume operations, correct any problem and ensure the
tablet is within range of your computer. Then press the power button on the
Wacom wireless module. See Testing your tablet.
•
After 30 minutes of no user input.
•
When the battery level is extremely low. Recharge the battery immediately.
To wake from sleep mode, press the power button on the wireless module.
Depending on your tablet model, touch the tablet surface with your finger or the
pen. Then move your finger or pen along the tablet to fully activate Intuos.
Important: Conserve battery power by turning off the wireless module when you are not using the
tablet. Push the power button on the wireless module to turn it off. Otherwise, the tablet battery
may need charging before you can again use the tablet wirelessly. See Battery life information.

BATTERY LIFE INFORMATION
When using your Intuos wirelessly, the battery life will vary depending upon usage and your tablet model.
For example, you can expect a full day of working charge when using small- and medium-sized tablet
models. If you have a large Intuos tablet model, expect a half day of battery charge due to its large size.
Wacom recommends purchasing an extra battery. See Ordering parts and accessories.
•
All batteries age over time and gradually lose their ability to hold a charge. The typical life span of a
Li-Ion battery is two to three years, whether it is used or not. The life and performance of a Li-Ion
battery is not improved by cycling (discharging and recharging).
•
Always charge the battery whenever the low battery warning appears on your display screen.
See also Power saving features.
•
The tablet draws current from the battery whenever the Wacom wireless module is on. To reduce power
drain, the tablet will enter sleep mode whenever the battery level is very low. The battery must be
recharged.
A small amount of current is drawn even in sleep mode, and will slowly discharge the battery. It is a
good idea to charge the battery and turn the wireless module off before leaving the tablet unused for a
number of days.
•
Once the battery voltage has fallen below a minimum safety level, an internal protection circuit within
the battery prevents any charging.
If a battery with a low charge remains in the tablet for an extended period of time, the small trickle of
current used by the tablet may discharge the battery so far that the internal protection circuit is
activated. If this occurs, you can no longer charge the battery. When leaving the tablet unused for an
extended period of time, preserve the battery by removing it from the tablet.
You cannot recharge a Li-Ion battery that has been over-discharged.
•
For extended battery storage (a month or longer), keeping the battery in a partially (not fully) charged
state, along with cool storage, can slow the aging process. The recommended charge level is
approximately 40% for optimum battery recharge when placed back into service. If storing both tablet
and battery, you do not need to remove the battery. However, it is always good practice to remove the
battery when storing the tablet.
Note that you may not be able to recharge the battery after six continuous months of non-use.
You will need to purchase a new battery when it is no longer capable of holding an adequate charge or can
no longer be charged. See Ordering parts and accessories.
Warning: See the Important Product Information document for battery safety precautions.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT
If your tablet battery has exceeded its life span and can no longer be charged or no longer holds a charge,
it will need to be replaced. Be sure to use only the rechargeable battery designed for your tablet. For
information, see Ordering parts and accessories.
Important: Only use a Wacom battery specified for your tablet.
To replace the rechargeable battery:
1. Turn the tablet over. Remove the battery compartment cover. Slide the cover away from the tablet body
to remove.
2. Carefully remove the old battery. Be sure to lift the back edge of the battery before removing the
contact end and lifting the battery out of the compartment.
3. Install the new battery. Align the terminals of the new battery with the tablet contacts. Press the battery
into the compartment. See illustrations for Wireless setup.
Note: Do not press straight down on the battery to install it. Align the contacts and press that end of the
battery into place before pressing down the other end.
4. Replace the battery compartment cover. Align and slide into place.
5. Connect the USB cable and charge the battery for optimum performance. See Charging the battery.
Important: When replacing the battery, be careful not to drop it on hard surfaces. The battery can be
damaged internally when dropped, and should be replaced even if there is no obvious damage. This
will help prevent any future damage that could occur to the tablet if the battery has been dropped, is
installed in the tablet, and then later develops a short or leak while in the tablet.
Warning: See the Important Product Information document for battery safety precautions.
Many communities offer voluntary or mandatory recycling programs for batteries. Properly recycle the old
battery by following all applicable laws, and in accordance with the safety precautions for Lithium-Ion
batteries as described in the Important Product Information document. Keep batteries out of the reach of
children. Promptly recycle old batteries.

Use the Wacom Tablet Utility to work with your preferences. Close any
open applications. Open the main APPLICATIONS folder. Then open the
WACOM TABLET folder and run the WACOM TABLET UTILITY.
•
It is a good idea to first back up your tablet preferences. In the
Wacom Tablet Utility, select CURRENT USER or ALL USERS. Then click
BACKUP... and follow the prompts.
•
Then, delete the tablet preferences as follows:
Single user. When the utility starts, select CURRENT USER and click
REMOVE. Log out, then log back in. When the tablet driver loads it
will create a new preferences file with the factory defaults.
Multiple users. When the utility starts, select ALL USERS and click
REMOVE. Log out, then log back in. When the tablet driver loads it
will create new preferences files with the factory defaults.
You can quickly restore tablet preferences that have been backed up
for the CURRENT USER or ALL USERS by clicking RESTORE... within the
utility.
Ink does not work correctly
with Intuos.
Note: Do not manually remove the WACOM TABLET.PREFPANE file from
the main LIBRARY PREFERENCE PANES folder. This file is only to be
removed when uninstalling the Wacom software driver, and then
only when using the Wacom Tablet Utility.
There may be a problem with the Ink preferences. Remove the
damaged preference files as follows. They will be re-created when you
enable handwriting recognition.
1. Open SYSTEM PREFERENCES, choose SHOW ALL and select INK.
Then turn off handwriting recognition.
2. From the GO menu, choose your HOME. Open the LIBRARY and
PREFERENCES folders. Remove the following preferences:
•
COM.APPLE.INK.FRAMEWORK.PLIST
•
COM.APPLE.INK.INKPAD.PLIST
•
COM.APPLE.INK.INKPAD.SKETCH
3. Go back to SYSTEM PREFERENCES and INK, and then enable
handwriting recognition.
4. Test the Ink function using your Wacom tablet and pen.
If this procedure does not resolve your problem with Ink, contact Apple
Support for further assistance. Wacom is not the software
manufacturer for Ink and we are limited in our abilities to support a
third-party software application.

OBTAINING SOFTWARE UPDATES
Wacom periodically updates the tablet software driver to maintain compatibility with new products. If you
are having a compatibility problem between Intuos and a new hardware or software product, it may be
helpful to download a new software driver (when available) from the Internet.
Visit www.wacom.com for support, product drivers, or other software updates.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Keep the pen and the Intuos surface clean. Dust and dirt particles can stick to the pen and cause excessive
wear to the surface. Regular cleaning will prolong the life of your surface and pen.
Store your Intuos and pen in a clean, dry place and avoid extremes in temperature. Room temperature is
best for tablet use and storage.
Do not disassemble the Intuos or the pen. Taking apart the product will void your warranty.
Important: Take care to never spill liquids onto the Intuos or the pen. Be especially careful of getting
the display, ExpressKeys or pen buttons and pen tip wet, as they contain sensitive electronic parts
that will fail if they are exposed to liquids.
Avoid scratching the Intuos with a worn pen nib by replacing your nibs frequently. See Replacing the pen
nib.
To clean the Intuos or the pen, use a soft, damp cloth. You can also dampen the cloth using a very mild
soap diluted with water. Do not use any other substances, liquids or solvents to clean the tablet or pen.
To clean the Intuos surface, use an anti-static cloth or a slightly damp cloth. Apply light pressure, and do
not make the surface wet. Do not use any type of detergent to clean the Intuos, as it may damage the
surface. This damage is not covered by the warranty.

REPLACING THE PEN NIB
The pen nib (tip) will wear with normal use. Excessive pressure will cause it to wear sooner. To protect your
Intuos from being scratched and for best performance, periodically replace your pen nibs, or when the nib
gets too short or develops a flat point.
You can quickly remove a worn nib from your pen by using the nib puller pad on the back of the Intuos, and
then manually insert a new nib, as shown.

USING APPLICATIONS INTEGRATED FOR TABLET CONTROL
Some software applications may be designed to directly control ExpressKeys function(s). When working
with these applications, the ExpressKeys may perform differently than the function that is set in the Wacom
Tablet control panel.
•
When an ExpressKey is overridden by an application, the ExpressKey setting will automatically update,
using either “Application Defined” or the new function name. Some or all of the ExpressKeys may be
overridden, depending on the application.
•
An integrated application will control the ExpressKeys only when that application is active and in the
foreground. When you close that application or select a new application pane to work in, your Wacom
Tablet control panel settings are returned to their previous state.
•
To review the ExpressKey, or pen settings for the current front-most application, set an ExpressKey to
SETTINGS and press the key at any time.
Applications that have been integrated in this manner will typically provide you with the opportunity to optout or disable this functionality when first using your Wacom product with the application. See the
documentation provided with your application for any specific details on functionality and how to
customize or disable this feature.
If an automatic prompt or the application’s documentation does not describe how to disable this behavior,
you can use the Wacom Tablet control panel to create settings that will override the behavior of the
integrated application. See Customizing your application settings.
Important: If an application-specific setting has been created for an integrated application, setting
an ExpressKey to APPLICATION DEFINED will still allow the integrated application to control the
function.

GLOSSARY
Active area. The navigation and drawing area of the tablet where touch or your Intuos tools are detected.
See touch sensor.
Application-specific settings. Intuos tool and tablet settings that have been customized for individual
applications. The Wacom Tablet control panel enables you to customize your tablet to behave uniquely in
different applications. Application-specific settings are in effect whenever you use the application. See
Creating an application-specific setting
Aspect. The ratio between the vertical and horizontal dimension of the tablet or display.
Click force. The amount of force you must apply to the pen tip for a click to occur.
Digital Ink. A broad category that typically describes handwritten content which has been created using
pen-based input on a computer. This handwritten content takes the form of sketches, ink mark-up, or
handwriting. The handwriting can optionally be converted to typewritten text or simply left alone for use in
its original format. Depending on your system and applications settings, the handwritten text you make
with digital ink can be converted on-the-fly or at another time.
Display Toggle. An Intuos feature that allows you to work with your tablet on all displays or on one display
at a time. Available only on multiple monitor systems. See working with Display Toggle.
Double-click distance. The maximum distance (in screen pixels) that the screen 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
double-click.
Eraser-aware application. A software application that has built-in support for the pen eraser.
These applications take advantage of the eraser in different ways, depending on what makes sense for the
application.
ExpressKeys. The customizable control keys located on your Intuos tablet. See Using the ExpressKeys.
Journal. A Microsoft Windows application that electronically simulates a physical journal pad, but with the
advantages of digital note taking. For example, you can create quick sketches and jot handwritten notes
that can be converted to text and sent on to colleagues for digital mark-up.
LED. Light-Emitting Diode. Used as tablet indicator light(s).
Mapping. The relationship between the tool position on your Intuos tablet and the cursor position on the
monitor screen.

Pen input. A method of controlling a computer using the pen on your Intuos tablet.
Pen mode. A pen input method of positioning the screen cursor. Wherever you place your Intuos pen on
the tablet, the screen cursor will jump to the corresponding point on the screen. This is known as absolute
positioning, and is the default setting for Intuos pens. Pen mode allows you to quickly position the screen
cursor without having to first find it and then move it across the desktop.
Pressure sensitive. A quality of the Wacom pen 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 above the tablet active area where pen detection occurs. See also Using the side
switch.
Radial Menu. A hierarchical menu (in radial format). Each level of the menu consists of eight menu slices
which may contain various features and options to choose from. You can customize the buttons of your
pen or tablet to display this menu.
Tablet PC Input Panel (TIP). The Microsoft Windows Tablet PC Input Panel enables you to use your Wacom
pen to create handwritten notes or work with an on-screen keyboard. The Input Panel dynamically converts
your handwriting to text. Information you create can then be inserted into other documents, spreadsheets,
or illustrations.
Touch. A method of interacting with a computer using only your fingers on the Intuos tablet. May also be
referred to as “touch input”.
Touch sensor. The navigation area of your Intuos tablet where touch is detected. The touch sensor resides
within the active area, and does not accept pen input.
