  3. Select Pen settings in the main content area. You will proceed to Wacom Tablet Properties.
  4. For each of the pen buttons, select the action you want from the drop-down menu.
  5. Note: The options available in Wacom Tablet Properties will vary depending on your device.

Customize other pen properties

  • Pen Feel Details: To change the tip sensitivity, click Customize and adjust advanced pen options.
  • Current Pressure: To see how hard you need to press with the pen, check your Current Pressure by pressing down with the pen tip or eraser in an empty area of the Wacom Tablet Properties window.
    • If you want to change the amount of pressure you need to use the pen tip or eraser, move the Tip Feel and Eraser Feel sliders.
  • Tip Double Click Distance: Determines the maximum distance (in screen pixels) that the screen cursor can move between clicks and still be accepted as a double-click. Increasing the double-click distance makes double-clicking easier, but may cause a delay in brush strokes in some graphics applications.
  • Tilt Sensitivity: To change how much the tilt of your hand affects your pen strokes, drag the slider. Open an application that supports tilt to test while you are adjusting, so you can see how your changes affect your strokes.
Tip: If you want a narrower range of pressure values in a pressure-sensitive application, select a soft Tip Feel.
Tip: If the pen overreacts to slight pressure, try a firmer Tip Feel setting.
Tip: If you notice a delay at the beginning of brush strokes, inking strokes, or drag actions, try a smaller Tip Double Click Distance or set a pen button to double-click instead of the pen tip.
