For many years, I've been using a 3:4 aspect ratio CRT monitor. Several years back, I picked up a new Wacom Intuos 3 6x8 tablet, and have since gotten used to drawing and painting with it. Recently, however, the CRT monitor's display started going, and I had to get a new monitor. I went with a 16:10 1920x1200 display. Of course, the tablet's mapping was completely off, so I went into the driver settings to regain the 1:1 feel I had with the 6x8 on the 3:4 screen.
However, even after adjusting the Wacom driver to map a portion of the tablet's surface to the screen, matching the new aspect ratio, things still don't feel right. I have tried checking off "Force Proportions" under Screen Area and custom-setting "Portion..." under Tablet Area (with "Force Proportions" unchecked), using a combination of Photoshop, the Wacom's indicated resolution and a 16:10 ratio Marquee Tool selection to define the usable area. However, the tablet still feels off.
I spoke to Wacom, and the representative said that upgrading to a new wide aspect tablet is the way to go, but it's yet another expense on top of the monitor and a possible Adobe CS6 upgrade, so I'd prefer to avoid it if at all possible. As such, if anyone has any advice or can offer any assistance to that end, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.
