    I have a Wacom Bamboo tablet that I use with my MBP. When I connect the 20" Dell to the MBP, the tablet "has to" cover two screens, so the proportions are all funked up. Does anyone know how to set the tablet to cover only one screen? I haven't found anything in the preferences, maybe there's a sort of bugfix for that?

    I've been searching around wondering this same thing. It's so hard to draw when using dual monitors.

    hey shotglass I just found out that you can do it by going into your system preferences panel and then the pen tablet option.
    By pen mode there's an option for "details". click that and you'll get your options for what the pen should conform to. it's nice because the pen can stay on your main screen and then the mouse can travel throughout all screens

    Whoopee! Thanks man! I wonder how I couldn't find this, I thought I'd gone through all of the options in the preferences.
