    I currently have a Wacom Intuos3 6x8 tablet they I have really enjoyed. I recently got a 23'' ACD and I noticed that Wacom has a 6x11 wide tablet. I have not been forcing proportions on my current tablet, but I am starting to wonder if I should. Also would the 6x11 fit the ratio of the 23'' monitor a lot better than my current 6x8?
    thanks for your help

    The 6x8 supports the ratio fine by forcing the proportions. The only difference will be that the 6x11 will be bigger (its basically a 9x12 with widescreen proportions turned on). You are not looking at the tablet when you use it, so it doesnt matter that the 6x11 is in a 16:10 shape if thats what youre worried about. The active area of a 6x8 will be a 16:10 shape with proportions turned on, you just wont be able to see it (which does matter since you look at the screen).

    It might feel more natural to use a tablet with a close aspect ratio, but it's not really worth it.
