    I'm using a Wacom Bamboo pen tablet which, as we all know, has a tiny active surface area. (but hey, I got it brand new on sale for $27, so it will do until I graduate)
    I'm using it with my 15" Macbook Pro plugged into an external 23" 1080p monitor which is set up as the primary display, the 15" LCD is the secondary, which makes it a pain to use a pen tablet with such a small surface area.
    Is there any way to map the surface area to only the external 23" monitor?
    I looked in the Wacom settings tab on the System Prefs and didnt see this as an option.

    It should be there in the system prefs. I've had several Wacom tablets, and they've all had that option in the Wacom preferences panel. There should be a tab for "mapping" with lots of options for your settings in it. If you don't see it, you might want to make sure you have the most recent driver.

    Got it. You're right Phrasikleia, it was under a deeper tab, I was expecting it to be on the surface options under the tablet settings pane.
