I'm trying to use Illustrator CS5 (as well as Photoshop CS5) on my Lenovo X61 Tablet (running Windows 7 32 bit) in 270° screen rotation (I think this is called secondary portrait mode in windows?), but my X and Y cursor positions are inverted. This means if my stylus is on the left half of the screen, my cursor will be on the right side, the same distance away from the right border as my stylus is from the left. Likewise if my stylus is somewhere in the top half of the screen, the cursor will be somewhere in the bottom half of the screen, the same distance from the bottom border as the stylus is from the top. The only time the cursor and stylus positions match is in the dead center of the screen.
The stylus is working properly in other applications in this screen rotation, including InDesign CS5 (the only other Adobe product I've tried with this), just not in Illustrator or Photoshop. I'm guessing this is a bug related to Adobe interpreting the wacom data instead of the Windows UI (for pressure sensitivity, buttons, etc.), but if anyone has encountered this and has a solution, it would be greatly appreciated.
It works fine in 90° rotation. I would like to have it in 270° so that I can use the keyboard with my left hand for shortcuts, and the tablet with my right, when the notebook is folded open with the screen in portrait mode. This bug is preventing me from doing so.
If by a deviation amounting to a 180° rotation, you are refering to how the tablet input is being read by the program, then I would agree with you. The screen is drawing in the right orientation, but the input is wrong.
Still has the same problem. I think constrain angle is for drawing and moving things on a specific axis. What's happening is the cursor's position is inverted. I'd imagine if it was a setting, it would be under some sort of tablet options or something.
I know that I am late to the races but I am hoping to save someone else a painful headache. My stylus worked fine on the X axis, right to left. The Y axis was inverted. When my stylus was high on the tablet the cursor was down. I work on two monitors so the mapping area was also constrained proportionally leaving me with a non responsive area on my tablet.
I tried changing Hex Keys, installing latest drivers, rebooting, changing brush preferences, drop-kicking the computer box, threatening it with magnets, swearing... to no avail. I found that if I went into the Start Menu/ All Programs/ Wacom Tablet/ Wacom Tablet Preference File Utility; under All user Preferences; click 'Remove', my stylus began responding correctly immediately.
I hope this helps someone.
