Wacom Tablet Support
Warning: Entering experimental territory
At present, Wacom Tablet support is experimental, however significantly improved starting
with v126.96.36.199 released in November 2019. In order to experiment, settings should be changed
via the "Wacom Tablet Properties" application and optionally in the SteadyMouse hidden settings.
Find below the full instructions for changes to Wacom and SteadyMouse that should allow
experimenting with smoothed tablet drawing.
Adjusting the Wacom Tablet Settings
Wacom tablets have two modes, "Pen Mode" and "Mouse Mode" and only the latter worked up until
recently. Starting with SteadyMouse v188.8.131.52 both should be useable. There is a setting
called "Windows Ink" in the Wacom options that should be disabled for the best experience.
Once configured it should allow the pen to draw extra smooth lines and curves with
- Open the "Wacom Tablet Properties" application.
- Select the "Mapping" tab.
- Uncheck the box for "Windows Ink" under "Pen Mode"
- Experiment with both "Pen Mode" and "Mouse Mode"
Adjusting the SteadyMouse Hidden Settings
SteadyMouse has some advanced settings if you know where to look for them. You should not need to change them
unless the Wacom tablet is still not working properly.
- Bring up the SteadyMouse settings window by double clicking the desktop icon.
- From the SteadyMouse settings window click the little mouse cartoon in the upper right corner.
- In the "About Window" click repeatedly on the little mouse cartoon (near the bottom of the window)
until "Developer Mode" unlocks
