View Full Version : How to Turn On Tablet Mode?

07 July 2008, 03:46 AM
I have read messiah:doc "Tablet Information".
it says"you should use the world navigation hotkeys instead"

I hold-down Alt-key and Tablet Pen draw, jumps or flickers in viewport occur.

But I cannot solve this problem.

Hope I haven't misunderstood your request.
Try this:

1) go to KeyCommandManager under the Customize tab.
2) select "commands"
3) hit F3 to see a bit more of the options
4) navigate to interface / input tablet

you can double-click it to activate the input tablet mode or assign it to whatever key shortcut you fancy.

thanks for your teaching,dobermunk!

I finally understood how to activate Tablet Mode.

But...nothing seems to be changed.
View is always jumping about 30 degrees , counter clockwise direction,
everytime I click the pen tips with Alt key.

Is this the true specification of messiah's tablet mode?

And messiah offten hang-up (freeze) when I browse Customize menu.
I'll try some old version of messiah...

If there are any advices to solve this situation ,please help me.

Jumping occurs if you have dual monitor setup or if you try to use messiah 64bit version.

Eww, I hope I don't have any problems with my setup because im going to be using a 15" wacom cintiq in mirrored monitor mode. Does this problem also occur with SLI video cards like a GX2?
