    Just bought a MediaTablet 14000u of Amazon.UK but it seems to work oddly in my Photoshop CS4 on Mac OSX 10.8.2. All other tested Applications so far works fine.

    In Photoshop I don't seem to be able to 'draw' as with my smaller Wacom Bamboo tablet. MediaTablet works almost only as a point and click device in Photoshop. But if I click and drag, I can move f.ex. a selection around on screen but when releasing/lifting the pen, the selection jumps back to a memorize origin. Also I can't 'draw' a selection box, it'll just make a selection box/frame from an initial/memoried selection point to where I start clicking in order to draw the hole selection, also it's not possible to draw f.ex. in Quick Mask mode, again only clicking is working here :confused:

    Any hints appreciated, Google isn't showing anything yet!

    Also I'm wandering why the bundle Key Manager only seems to show/handle K1-K10 options and not all K34 keys in a profile as documented for Windows versions.

    TIA

    drivers

    the tablet acts as a pointing only-device if the correct drivers are not installed. unfortunately, the ones supplied with the tablet are almost always the wrong ones.
    The german Aiptek usually has the latest : http://www.aiptek.de/index.php/en/p...ital-pens/graphics-tablets/mediatablet-14000u
    also, remember to configure & save the settings for the extra buttons, as by default they are not configured to do anything.

    Drivers

    radug: Thanks, weird even though the included driver was same version 2.13 for OSX, downloading v.2.13 from .de site made it work so far on my Airbook, will try later the same driver on my Mac Pro...
