What settings can I assign?
You can change the settings assigned to ExpressKeys™, Touch Rings, On-Screen Controls, pen buttons, and other customizable components of your device in Wacom Tablet Properties. Then, when you engage that component, such as pressing an ExpressKey or pen button, the function that you assigned to it is performed.
Refer to this list of settings to help you decide if you want to change any settings that are already assigned.
Note: The available features and customizable components in this list may vary depending on your device. Refer to the drop-down menus on the settings tabs in Wacom Tablet Properties to see which options are available for the components specific to your device.
Warning: Make sure that the Click setting is assigned to at least one customizable component so you can always navigate and click.
