GETTING STARTED

This section introduces you to your tablet and helps you become familiar with its appearance and features.

  • Not all product models are available in all regions.
  •  Your tablet can only be used with compatible pens or input devices. Wacom cannot guarantee compatibility with older tablets or pens. You cannot use pens or input devices from a previous version of the tablet. A pen from your new tablet cannot be used with other tablets.

YOUR PEN TABLET

One by Wacom ‎CTL472K1A Small Graphics Drawing Tablet 1

PEN

Cordless, battery-free, and pressure sensitive. Use this freehand tool for image editing and creating natural-looking pen strokes. It is also an efficient tool for document annotation and taking notes in applications that support handwriting recognition.

You will find the pen ideally suited to enhance your workflow by enabling the pen and digital ink features found within Microsoft Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, and Office 2007 or later. Take advantage of digital markup for collaborative editing and use digital ink to take notes in applications that support handwriting recognition.
Important:
When not in use, place the pen in the pen holder or lay it flat on your desk. When equipped, the eraser end of the pen should be inserted first into the loop. To maintain the sensitivity of your pen, do not store it in a container where it will rest on the tip or eraser.

Leaving the pen on the tablet may interfere with screen cursor positioning when using other pointing devices, or may prevent your computer from going to sleep.

SETTING UP YOUR TABLET

To minimize fatigue, comfortably organize your work area. Position your tablet, pen, and keyboard for easy access without unnecessary reaching. Adjust your monitor so you can view it comfortably with minimum eyestrain. For best results, position the tablet so the screen cursor follows the same direction as your hand movements on the tablet.

ERGONOMICS

One by Wacom ‎CTL472K1A Small Graphics Drawing Tablet 3

  • Maintain a good posture at all times.
  • Use a gentle grip when working with the pen.
  • Periodically shift your gaze from your computer and focus on other objects in the room. This will help to relax your eyes.
  • Take short breaks between tasks to stretch and relax your muscles.
  • Alternate tasks and tools throughout the day. Minimize awkward  postures and repetitive movements that cause discomfort
  • Change your position if you feel any discomfort due to your work position.
  • If you are using the tablet as a primary pointing device and mouse replacement, try placing it to the side of the keyboard nearest to your dominant hand (for example, to the right of the keyboard if you are right-handed).
  • If you are using the tablet primarily as a creative tool, try placing the tablet below the keyboard, centered on your monitor.

Note regarding RSI:
Wacom makes no representation, promise, or guarantee that Wacom products will cure or prevent, in whole or in part, mouse-induced repetitive stress symptoms, injuries, or conditions. Individual results may vary. Always obtain competent medical advice to determine the most appropriate treatment for your specific situation.

WORKING WITH MULTIPLE MONITORS

If your computer is equipped with more than one monitor, the tablet will map to your 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.One by Wacom ‎CTL472K1A Small Graphics Drawing Tablet 4
  • 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.

USING YOUR TABLET

If you are new to using the tablet, read the following sections. As you work, you will discover many ways of interacting with your tablet. For example:

Photo Editing
Use the pressure-sensitive pen to edit images within a photo or image editing application.

One by Wacom ‎CTL472K1A Small Graphics Drawing Tablet 5

Annotation
Simplify document reviews by using a pen to digitally mark up and annotate documents.

One by Wacom ‎CTL472K1A Small Graphics Drawing Tablet 6

POSITIONING

To select an icon or folder, use your pen to position the screen cursor over the object. Press down to select.

WRITING AND DRAWING WITH PRESSURE SENSITIVITY
The pen responds to your hand movements, enabling you to create natural-looking pen and brush strokes within applications that support this feature. The digital ink tools in Microsoft Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, and Office 2007 or later, as well as the drawing tools in many graphics applications, respond to the pressure you place on the pen.

For example, sliders are used in some applications to vary line characteristics such as width, color, and opacity. These characteristics can be controlled much better by the pen’s pressure sensitivity. You can vary line width, blend colors, and change opacity with the pressure you exert upon the pen.

EYE-HAND COORDINATION EXERCISE
This exercise is designed to retrain your eye-hand coordination for using the 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 a standard mouse to do this.
  2. Choose a free-hand tool in your application and use the pen to draw a dot at each grid intersection.
  3. Draw an X at each grid intersection.
  4. Clear your screen and make a simple drawing of your own. The more you use your pen, the easier writing, drawing, and navigation will become.

CONTROL PANEL OVERVIEW

Customizable settings are found on each tab. The tabs that apply to your tablet model and configuration are displayed when you open the control panel.

One by Wacom ‎CTL472K1A Small Graphics Drawing Tablet 7

Experiment with different settings to find what works best for you. Any changes you make will take effect immediately. Click DEFAULT to return a tab to the factory settings. Tool Tips are available for most control panel items. Position the screen cursor over an item and let it rest there.

The appropriate Tool Tip will pop up in a few moments. Your keyboard tab and arrow keys can also be used to navigate the control panel. The following sections provide detailed information about each control panel tab and some of the more advanced concepts. Many of the sections also contain useful customizing tips.

SETTING THE TIP AND ERASER FEEL, AND DOUBLE-CLICK THE DISTANCE

Select the PEN tab. 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 erase with a broad stroke or to click with a light touch, use a soft eraser setting (when equipped with an eraser). For maximum control while erasing, use a firm eraser setting.

One by Wacom ‎CTL472K1A Small Graphics Drawing Tablet 8

Tips:
Use a soft TIP FEEL to reach the full pressure range with a lighter touch. In some applications a soft pressure setting can make the pen overreact, causing any small press on the pen to be magnified on the screen. If you experience this, try a firmer TIP FEEL setting. To make double-clicking easier, expand the tap area that accepts a double-click (the double-click distance).

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 a pen button set to double-click (see setting the pen button functions)

SETTING THE PEN BUTTON FUNCTIONS

Select the PEN tab. Each pen button can be set to simulate a variety of mouse functions. Select the function to perform when pressing the upper or lower pen button. The selected function occurs when you bring the pen tip within 7 mm (0.28 inch) of the tablet surface without touching the tablet and then press the upper or lower pen button.

One by Wacom ‎CTL472K1A Small Graphics Drawing Tablet 8

Tip:
To make double-clicking easier, set a pen button to double-click automatically by selecting DOUBLE CLICK.

SETTING THE TABLET MAPPING

Select the PEN tab. The tablet TRACKING options enable you to define the relationship between pen 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. See working with multiple monitors.

One by Wacom ‎CTL472K1A Small Graphics Drawing Tablet 9

TRACKING 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. Click MAPPING… to customize the tablet mapping.
  • MOUSE MODE enables you to move the screen cursor with a “pick up and slide” motion similar to using a standard mouse. Click DETAILS… to set the pen speed in mouse mode.

Note:
If you frequently switch between pen mode and mouse mode, you can assign the MODE TOGGLE… function to one of your pen buttons.

When FORCE PROPORTIONS are unchecked, the correct scale 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.

When FORCE PROPORTIONS are 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’s active area may no longer be usable when this option is selected.

SETTING THE PEN SPEED IN MOUSE MODE
To change the screen cursor acceleration and speed when using the pen in mouse mode, click on the PEN tab MOUSE MODE DETAILS… button. A dialog box will be displayed where you can make your adjustments.

One by Wacom ‎CTL472K1A Small Graphics Drawing Tablet 10

Notes:
The dialog box will also appear when you set a button to MODE TOGGLE… Only one acceleration and speed setting can be made. The mouse mode acceleration and speed settings are independent of system settings. Changes you make to these settings in the tablet control panel do not affect similar system settings. However, changes made to similar system settings may affect your tablet settings.

CUSTOMIZING TABLET ORIENTATION

Choose the TABLET tab to set the tablet orientation. ORIENTATION: Change how your tablet is oriented by selecting RIGHT-HANDED or LEFT-HANDED input. The tablet driver automatically configures all aspects of the tablet for the selected option. Next, physically rotate the tablet to match your selection.

Note:
At the system log-on and user switching screens, the tablet will use the default orientation that was selected when the driver was installed. If you want to change the default orientation, you must reinstall the driver. See configuring tablet orientation.

One by Wacom ‎CTL472K1A Small Graphics Drawing Tablet 11

WORKING WITH DISPLAY TOGGLE
Display Toggle is available when working on multiple monitor systems. This feature allows you to work with your tablet on all displays or on one display at a time. See working with multiple monitors.

The entire display area of a multi-monitor system is set up for extended mode and assigned to the active area of the tablet. All monitors are selected in the toggle sequence.

  • The base mapping is the tablet and display mapping defined in the PEN MODE DETAILS dialog. By default, this includes all monitors unless you have defined a specific monitor as your primary monitor.
  • As you toggle to the next monitor, the active tablet area is mapped to that monitor (in pen mode).
  • Toggling one more time after the last selected monitor returns the system to the base mapping.
  • Any of the following actions will return the toggle sequence to the base mapping:
  • Launching a graphics application that supports pressure sensitivity.
  • Logging out of or rebooting the system.
  • Switching users (Fast User Switching).
  • Placing the system in sleep mode.
  • Changing the PEN MODE DETAILS settings.
  • Changing the resolution or number of displays on your system.
  • Using the MODE TOGGLE… function.
