    It's Christmas time, and of course we all have a wish list.

    On the top of mine is a Wacom Intuos3 pen tablet, the smallest size.

    I believe it has a 4x6 inch active area and that it's in a widescreen format.

    I'm wondering if this is going to affect the aspect on my square format monitor.

    Please help me out, I've been searching for answers everywhere.

    Merry Christmas!

    Preference Pane

    The wacom is supported well in the system preference pane and there are many options open to you. You can force the format to fit or choose to use part of your tablet to match your screen. I prefer to use part of the tablet rather than forcing and stretching the format. Either way its well supported by the driver in my experience, you will also love ink. Alias sketchbook pro is worth checking out along with corel painter and of course photoshop enjoy and happy Xmas back at ya !
