Hey There- I'm having the exact same issue. Contacted Wacom's online customer service three times... silence.
Did you figure it out?
I thought I was alone with this. No luck here. I just have to try not to lift the pen too high then it works okay. This problem makes no sense at all. I'll post back if I find anything.
I just started having the same problem, and the onlyk thing that changed, I think, is that I updted the Bamboo driver software to 220.127.116.11 version.
But I uninstalled it and went back one version, and the same issue persists... terrible! I have this problem on my entire tablet area in AE, so I can't use it to paint...!
i think you are on the right track but maybe you need to go back one more version on the driver.
any time i have had wacom issues its been a driver issue
I still haven't found any solution. I did find that in Soundbooth, it has a similar problem. If I hover a bit too high, it will scroll down by itself. I found that in AE and Soundbooth, I don't even have to be in the program for that problem to occur. It is incredibly annoying.
Wow... what a major flaw.
I just reinstalled the Bamboo Dock as well as the driver, using the included CD. So the driver version is now 18.104.22.168.
Apparently the issue has disappeared or at least diminished... Let me know if it helps you too?
Hey there. I don't know if you're still having this problem, but I had something similar happen and I may have fixed it.
I often have a problem where if I open an image in Corel Painter, hovering over the surface of the tablet instantly zooms in as far as it will go and doesn't behave like a pen at all. I've tried many things each time this comes up - re-installing preferences from a backup, disabling and re-enabling the drivers (my main machine is a Win 7 box I built), and eventually re-installing the drivers - and no one thing seems to be the perfect solution... until today. I was looking through the Wacom Preferences and noticed that you can remove tools from the preference pane (the second row from the top shows the pen and mouse). I never, ever use the mouse (it's in a drawer over there somewhere *points*), so I decided to remove it completely. I open Painter and it works again! I'll have to see if this is a permanent fix, but so far so good.
