Adjusting display height and incline

You can use the stand to adjust the pen display height and incline to best meet your needs throughout your working day.

To change the incline or viewing angle:

  1. Face the front of the pen display and grasp it on the left and right sides at approximately the same height as the incline levers.
  2. Gently squeeze or pull the incline levers toward the pen display, squeezing the incline levers on both sides of the pen display at the same time. This will release a clutch mechanism. As you squeeze the levers, tilt the pen display to adjust the viewing angle.
  3. For a flatter incline, squeeze the lower levers and rotate Cintiq down to the desired position. For a more vertical incline, squeeze the upper levers and rotate Cintiq up to the desired position.
  4. To lock the incline levers in place, move them to the vertical position.
  5. When you have adjusted the stand to the desired position, release the incline levers to lock it in place.
  6. Use the release latch to free the incline levers from a locked position.
  7. Pay attention to how the pen display feels as you adjust the incline or viewing angle. You may find instances where it is easier to use the upper levers instead of the lower, or vice versa.

The support arms will lock in place when moved to a vertical position. To unlock the support arms:

  1. Use the incline levers to slightly raise the lower part of the pen display so you can access the release latch.
  2. Support the pen display with one hand and lift slightly. Using your other hand, pull the release latch toward you. This will unlock and release the support arms for movement.

You can extend the pen display support legs to slightly raise the pen display or allow for placement of a keyboard beneath the pen display unit. The support legs are located beneath the pen display unit, one at each lower corner. Flip out each leg, then push up slightly until it clicks into place. See Cintiq 24HD features for an illustration showing the location of the support legs.


  • Use care when unlocking the support arms, and always support the pen display with one hand as you do so. The display comes down when the lock is released.
  • DO NOT hold the support arms when releasing the lock. Improper release of the support arms from a locked position may allow the pen display to fall, and could cause personal injury or damage to the pen display unit.


  • The incline levers exhibit some natural play before the clutch mechanism engages.
  • When tilting the display upward to a more vertical position, you may notice the stand wanting to slip forward. Use the upper incline levers and pull Cintiq slightly toward you as you tilt the display upward.
