Advanced gestures recognition

You can choose Wacom or Windows as your gesture recognizer. This is a global option and will apply to all of your applications, unless you create Application-specific settings.

Note: Whichever gestures recognition setting you select below, Windows always controls 1- and 2-finger gestures.

    Wacom: This is the default selection. It will provide a consistent touch experience across applications: a 3-finger touch gesture will work the same in both Application A and Application B. This selection allows you to create custom 3-, 4- and 5-finger touch gestures.

    Windows: Select this option if you want the Windows operating system to control your 3-, 4- and 5-finger touch gestures. Windows will pass the gesture to each application. If the application supports that gesture, it will be activated. Using the Windows gesture recognizer means that different applications can have different ways of responding to the same gesture. For example: a 3-finger gesture in Application A might perform one behavior, while the same 3-finger gesture in Application B might perform another.

Note: If you choose Windows, the Advanced gestures tab will be disabled.
