“It is an awful thing still to dread the magic that you contemptuously investigate”
-Rudyard Kipling, Kim
Wacom released a few days ago a driver (Version 6.3.6-w3) which is the solution we've been waiting for. Windows 7 and Windows 8 are usable again if you own a Wacom tablet. I'll describe the results I've had have been excellent. [For further information about the driver go here]
After you install the driver launch the Wacom Tablet Properties application – you can find it from the Start Menu/Start Screen or from the Control Panel.
Then selection your Tablet, then under Tool select your pen you use, and under Application select All. Then navigate to the Mapping tab. Now, At the bottom-left corner uncheck the checkbox marked Use Windows Ink. Close the Wacom Tablet Properties application.
You are done – the effect takes place immediately.
Let me explain what is fixed.
- No more Dynamic Feedback rings
- No more Press-and-Hold
- No Drag Delay
Install the Driver and Do it Now. Really.
