I read through wacom's driver bulletin and I think they address this issue. If I remember correctly a driver update caused this even when the right click mode was turned off. Newest driver is supposed to fix this heres a [link] Bulletin 091 to the driver bulletin. Thankfully it's pretty concise, so it's not a huge read.
This "Press and hold to right click" was seriously giving me the irrates as well.
To disable it in Vista:
1. Start Menu > All Programs > Tablet PC > Tablet PC Pen training. 2. In the Contents menu on the left click "For more information". 3. Customizing pen settings > Pen and Input Devices. 4. Under "Pen Actions" select "Press and Hold" then click on "Settings". 5. Untick "Enable press and hold for right clicking".
DONE! No more stupid annoying Vista loading circles when holding down your pen!
I have an intous 3 and this is happening to me. It is making me crazy. I don't know what made it happen. Whenever I tap and hold I get a ring of red dots plus a mouse icon with a red dot on the right button. I can't get rid of it. It does not happen on the wacom mouse just the pen and the pen is less than 4 months old. It started happening about 3 weeks ago. Not sure what changed. I have deleted my preferences and am about to uninstall and reinstall to see if it helps. #$%^&*!!
Usually, to enable the press-and-hold thingie you'd have to hold down the right-click button of your stylus. Maybe your stylus is damaged and reports the button as pressed. You might want to try your frind's stylus.
The setting for this option should be in your Wacom-Tablet properties (or whatever that is in your language ) when you choose "Functions" in the "Tools" row - that's where you set your ExpressKeys stuff and such. There is an "Options" button on the bottom of the side which affects the setting your friend mentioned.
My stylus SHOULDN'T be damaged, as I just bought a new one fairly recently!
Also yeah I looked in the properties and the only tabs are "Pen" and "Tablet" - it is pretty useless.
ANYWAY. I completely uninstalled the driver, restarted, and reinstalled the driver - which seems to work! I was sort of loathe to try this because my computer really does not like booting up, so I generally just leave it on. (That's a problem for another day, though.) It is working happily now, though, and I'm getting a new computer in a month, so hopefully this won't be a problem for me any more.
I'm having the same issue, but it didn't start until I upgraded the driver. I'm going to try downgrading to the driver that came on the CD and see if that fixes it. Otherwise, I'll be notifying Wacom of the issue. Perhaps they have a remedy.
