Touch & gestures

Touch & gestures

The Touch & gestures feature allows you use only your fingertips on the surface of your Wacom device.

You can use touch as you would on any other Mac or Windows device. Touch is activated whenever you touch the device.

When using touch, you can usually position your fingers as far apart as is comfortable. However, placing your fingers too closely together may be interpreted by the device as input from a single finger, or the device may confuse which finger performed an action. Keep your fingers within the active area.

Tip: Take care to prevent accidental touches on the device when making gestures. For example, if the palm of your hand touches the active area of the device while scrolling or zooming, you may trigger an unanticipated right-click.
Tip: On some device models that support both pen input and touch, the pen disengages touch whenever the pen tip or eraser is within proximity range of the device. Lift the pen and your hand away from the device's active area to enable touch.
