I'm thinking of upgrading from the Bamboo to the Intuous 5 touch Medium.
However, I'd like to know if there is a setting or preference to flip it upside down and use it. I am a lefty and want to be able to rest my palm on the left side of the tablet.
As is, looks like this one has some buttons on the left, and I am concerned that they would be sensitive enough to pick up on the weight of my palm at times and cause problems.
Anyone know if it can be flipped upside down (re-oriented) and used so built in buttons on the right-hand side? Looks like this one is wireless, so it might be a possibility?
Thank you for your input! I would like to use it comfortably.
I do not have the same tablet, mine is an Intous 3, once the software and drivers are installed you can change the way some of theshortcut keys work as well as set it up for left or right hand use. I would guess the same would be true for your version. I bet Wacom accomodates lefties and righties
You certainly can. The device itself has 2 slots (depending on the orientation) for the cable. Flip the tablet, connect the cable to LH orientation. Once you install the driver, you can change the tablet to adapt to a Left-handed orientation. I'm on Intuos 4.
One thing that I've read about the Intuos 5 is that it loads up the drivers only after user login which may sometimes be frustrating. Read this thread: http://community.wacom.com/forums/mixed-media/hardware-software/thread/1864
