New Wacom Driver…Dated 7/11/2012


Hey Gang,

There is another wacom driver release for the usual suspects.  You can find it here.  I haven’t install it yet, but will do so after the post.  Don’t forget to uninstall previous version before you install the new one.

Have fun,

Skip

  1. Also, if you want to save your tablet Preference settings BEFORE you delete your current driver, go to the “Wacom Tablet” folder (in your Applications folder), and there, open up “Wacom Tablet Utility.app”. With that app, you can save your current Prefs to a temporary location on you computer; then delete the driver. Then install the newest driver (WacomTablet_6.3.2-4; not to be confused with the June-released 6.3.2w4). After installing the new driver, got back to “Wacom Tablet Utility.app” and click “Restore” (locate the Pref file you saved) to restore your tablet Prefs.

    THANK YOU Skip, for the above information!

    • CLARIFICATION: Using the “Wacom Tablet Utility.app” — after you click the “Backup” button to save your current tablets Prefs, then, to delete the driver, click on the Tablet Software button, “Remove.” That will remove your current Prefs as well as your Tablet Software (the driver).
      Then, when you install the new driver (that you downloaded), it will replace your Tablet Software (including the new driver). THEN, go back to “Wacom Tablet Utility.app” and click the “Restore” button for your Prefs.

  2. I am not sure if it particular to this July update or the June update but the gestures are much better. On my Intuos5 (With a extra sheet of acrylic on top for smoother action and no nib wear so far.) gestures one handed no longer work, but a finger from left & right hand either close together or far apart result in canvas turning and zooming simultaneously respond smooth, fast and accurate. This makes them worth leaving on. And I look forward to this more natural way of moving about.

    Skip I have viewed your Flow Map videos and will likely view them again in just a couple days. I have thought of a few ways this would be very useful in oils but so far have not had much luck other than changing the sub-category of the three new flow brushes in Real WC to wet oil. Perhaps you can find some time to show flow in oil some love in your next webinar.

  3. Again not on the Euro part of their site – but what the heck my WACOM was imported from the other side of the pond

    • Hey Terry, Sorry to hear the update isn’t for the other regions, yet. I bet it will be there soon. I believe I have heard that others have used the America’s updates anyway, but I am not sure of the success or failure of doing so. Skip
