Caveat: I don't have a Bamboo, I've got a Tablet PC but what you're describing sounds like the right click press-and-hold action which you can disable/tweak as follows: (if you're in category mode) Go to the Control Panel, 'Hardware and Sound' and then 'Change tablet pen settings' (if you're in icon mode) or 'Pen and Touch' Once inside, you'll see ...

Now, at the new window that opens, navigate to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Tablet PC > Cursor. Now enable the Turn off pen feedback setting. Yes - you have to enable it to disable ...

For archiving your existing notebooks I suggest either a digital camera or a scanner. The Camera is a much faster way to archive dead-tree media as it takes the image at once. A basic camera setup is using a tripod or other mount, and affixing your notebook in place. If necessary, use two small weights to keep the pages you're currently on flat. Then just ...

Don't delete the files with the Explorer. remove the drivers correctly with pnputil.exe run pnputil -e > C:\drivers.txt open the file drivers.txt and look which .inf file is associated with the driver you want to remove run pnputil.exe -d oem<NUMBER>.inf This removes the driver correctly. If this is too complicated, you can use the tool ...

I doubt it, as they are completely different. While touchpads use capacitive sensing, graphics tablets use something else entirely (electromagnetic induction apparently). My Wacom Intuos works without the pen having to touch the tablet, as that is how you move the mouse pointer around the screen. You only press down on the tablet when you are dragging, ...

Have you already tried the wacom brushes? You might also check out this blog about pencil brushes.

There's MyPaint. It's a little unconventional, but that can be a good thing.

Looking through Gimp's help files it shows support for tablets with pressure input: http://docs.gimp.org/2.6/en/gimp-pimping.html#gimp-prefs-input-devices

I've been dealing with this for a long time as well. Here's how I managed to get it back onscreen without reinstalling drivers or getting into files: Pull up the task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del normally) Right-click on "Wacom Tablet Properties" Click "Bring to Front" Then right click "Wacom Tablet Properties" again Click "Maximize" Once it pulls up, you can ...

What it looks like it is doing is displaying the tooltips for whatever is around your curser when you press one of those buttons. Seeing you cannot 'hover' using a pen tablet, Windows 7 (and I think Vista as well) has a 'handy' 'function' that enables you to view tooltips. It does not appear as if you can turn these off. However, there is a bit of a work ...

These are my favourite apps for taking notes with my Axiotron Modbook (basically a tabletized MacBook): Pear Note ($40, 30-day trial) Notational Velocity (Free, open-source) Notebook ($49.95, $29.95 for students, free trial) I've used all three, and I'm torn between Pear Note and Notebook. Notational Velocity is very good if you have a $0 budget, but the ...

In OneNote 2013, alt-d then p the ENTER gives you the pen. Alt-d then t gives you text mode. Using AutoHotkey you can bind these sequences of keys to any hotkey you like. Works for any other thing accessible via the menu as well.

The Intuous5 is supported only in the newest wacom drivers and needs a 3.4 linux kernel. You can wait it out till Mint catches up or look into PPAs or rolling your own kernel for mint. See here: http://scottlinux.com/2011/07/15/how-to-compile-your-own-kernel-in-ubuntu-debian-mint/ While rolling your own kernel will work, it will probably require some ...

Apparently getting rid of those ripples requires two non-obvious things: First, the Tablet PC Components need to be enabled (in Turn Windows Features On/Off) Second, the setting is not exposed in the UI, but must be switched by registry or group policy editing. The setting is located in the registry at ...

Adesso tech support was kind enough to provide me with an updated driver, even though the tablet wasn't branded by them. Here's a link for anyone needing it: http://www.waltop.com/download/GM-PenPad-V213-2012-0806.zip And yes, as you can divine from the URL, the tablet was actually manufactured by Waltop, so if you're ever in need for updated drivers, try ...

Well Cintiq has the 22HD which has 21.5 inch screen that you can see what you are writing on. It should double as a second monitor or duplicate your screen so it works just like another monitor. They also have the even larger 24HD. Both of these aer pricey though, and will put you in the hole $2000-$2500. They have a smaller 13" and 17" line too if I recall ...

I found the answer: go into Services, and stop and disable "Tablet PC Input Service", et voila :-)

I finally got this working today: download and install the latest drivers from Wacom (released 2010-Jul-15), reboot run "Bamboo preference file utility" and remove all preferences for yourself and all users run "Bamboo preferences" program (may need to run as administrator on win7, vista)

Tablets and mice can interact independently. The reason some vendors like Wacom package a mouse is because those mice are gesture aware, so if you use it on top of the tablet and have pre-defined gestures in the tablet software, they will word with a mouse as well as a pen. This is by no means a requirement. If you get a Wacom, I'd check out the newly ...

I had an old serial tablet that would not work with any 64-bit OS, XP or vista. Drivers just don't exist for this. Avoid a serial model for USB and you should be fine on that level. Also, buy the largest surface area you can afford. I could not ever achieve much with a 4x5 tablet and struggled for about a year with it. My mind could not adjust the ...

Disabling the metioned service is not viable for me since I need fast access to virtual keyboard and writing recognition and using gpedit.msc isn't working since I have Windows 7 Home Premium. The solution involves registry editing so please make a backup before doing it! Open Registry Editor (regedit.exe from Start menu) Go to HKEY CURRENT USER → ...

Same Problem here with Intuos4 and driver version 6.1.5-2. I also have a mouse connected to my iMac. Clicking with the mouse once solves the problem and the tablet responds to pen input again. No solution but probably a better workaround than putting the mac to sleep.

No. Pens are tied to tablets and can't be used without them. The pens you see separately are most likely replacements for the original.

Okay. I guess it was a rare question :D I happily found a solution that works for me. I'm happy to share in case helps someone else :) go to : C:\Users\Who ever your user name is\AppData\Roaming\WTablet there you find a file called: Wacom_Tablet.dat First to opening it, you have to stop the Wacom tablet service to be able to change those settings. Go ...

Simplest way: Click on the icon "Wacom Tablet Properties" on Windows bar. Press Alt+Spacebar Press M (stands for "Move". If your OS has a different native language, check your required letter on another window). Move randomly, usually up and right. You will uncover your Graal quickly!

The pens used with the Capturx software from Adapx don't record audio - just the handwriting. You don't have to buy special paper with Capturx - you can print your own documents whether they are forms from Excel, note pads from Microsoft Office OneNote, maps from ArcGIS, or any PDF file.

A small tablet would do what you want if you don't mind scrolling around the page but I think from your description that a digital pen offers you the best of both worlds. There are some models that behave like a normal pen (contain ink and can be used on paper) though I've never used those.
