Wacom Graphire 4X5 Pen Tablet gone mad!

Wacom Graphire 4X5 Pen Tablet gone mad!

Wacom Graphire 4X5 Pen Tablet gone mad!

My Wacom Graphire 4X5 Pen Tablet was working fine for the longest time in Corel PP10. After not using it for several weeks, it's now gone crazy. It grabs and drags everything on the screen and seems to be stuck in "left-click" mode. It's only in PP that this happens.

I've done the standard un/re-install of the drivers. The corresponding Graphire mouse works properly.



RE: Wacom Graphire 4X5 Pen Tablet gone mad!

I am not as familiar with this tablet, could it be programmed for PP and is confusion its click position. Have you tried taking the pen apart also?

Thanks, borgunit, for your reply.

I accidentally discovered the problem was a corrupted font. When I noticed the dockers had no titles on their tabs all of a sudden I investigated my fonts via the Font Navigator application included with Corel. I deleted then re-installed the Windows 98 base fonts and that solved the issue with the docker titles and also the pen tablet!

Everything is as it should be now, except whenever I reboot the corrupt font reloads and I have to do the same
thing all over again. But that's a problem for a different forum!
