    I just bought an Intuous4 Large size tablet and finding that the distance
    traveled of my hand is too much.... is there a way to cut down on the amount
    of travel needed to travel across the screen..... I have a laptop with a
    dual monitor 22" flat screen setup..... in otherwords I'd like to cut down
    on the amount of movement of my arm..... maybe I should have purchsed the
    smaller size.... but I thought I could determine the working area of my
    tablet.

    did you read the help file that came with the Intous tablet or set up
    the tablet using the Pen Tablet Properties? It's probably a lot faster
    to set it up instead of waiting around the newsgroup for an answer :[

    I haven't got a tablet myself (yet), but a quick "Google" suggests you
    choose the mapping tab in the pen properties page and select "mouse". The
    pen then moves as if it's a mouse.

    You should learn to not thinking about the TABLET and PEN, but learning to
    think it;s a regulat pen (like pencil or BIC). And learn not to chase the
    cursor but have fun with the cursor.

    And you should be able to send the cursor across the screen within
    whatever size of your tablet or MAPPING. IOW, the larger the tablet to
    further you have to move, and the smaller the MAP the lesser movement you
    have to move.

    Well, I dunno what to share but sharing another experience between Windows
    7, CS4, 24" LCD at 1920-1200, and Wacom Intuos3 4x5 and dunno what I may
    miss.

    Eveything seems to work fine (even I only installed to test out the new
    installed Windows 7) except CS4 only active at the upper_left_corner of the
    whole monitor or around 1/3 of the whole screen.

    - I have tried to MAP but doesn't make any difference

    - With MOUSE CS4 can be opened at full screen

    - With Wacom, the cursor is limited inside the actived area or if CS4 opens
    larger or moved out of the Upper_Left_Corner of screen then you can't even
    ve able to move the cursor to open the menu or close CS4 etc.

    It's so weird as I have never seen anything like this before, I have
    Googled for the answer but don't see anyone mentions about this. And this
    is my first LCD to know much about it, and CS4 is a trail version I want to
    try on LCD and Windows 7 (I am still using CS3), and current latest Wacom
    driver for Win7. I haven't tried MOUSE mode to see if it will make any
    difference.
