Custom built Windows 10 / 32 gig RAM, Core i7 3.5 (the six core model)
Up until two days ago my old but well functioning Wacom Intuous 3 tablet worked flawlessly with InDesign CC2017 — and with every other program on my computer. Then, starting two days ago when I select and an image or text frame and attempt to move or edit it with the tablet, InDesign stalls. If I attempt the same actions with my mouse, everything works fine.
The tablet works fine with all other Adobe programs and all other programs on my computer.
Here's what I've done to solve the issue (none of what I've tried has worked). I downloaded and installed the latest WACOM driver. I disconnected the tablet and connected a different one. I deleted preferences. I restarted numerous times.
Can anyone help me with this crazy issue?
Looks like you've already tried the obvious things that generally help sort these types of problems:
I'm not sure if this will help, but apparently Windows 10 'Anniversary Update' has added new pen controls to the system. If you happen to have installed that update, maybe the answer is to be found in the configuration of these (Devices > Pen & Windows Ink, deselect the Use Windows Ink option if it is selected).
Well friends and neighbors, the issue is solved.
I noticed that I was having some weird pen issues with Word and Excel too. So that made me think that something is out of whack in the operating system - since the drivers were up-to-date. Turns out my machine had not been receptive to Windows 10 updates. I ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/instantanswers/512a5183-ffab-40c5-8a68-021e32467565/wi ndows-update-troubleshooter and was subsequently able to run the Windows updates to get me up to the latest version and ... Viola! All is back to normal.
