    Anyone else get this weird problem? When using a Wacom tablet mouse, I can’t click anything and have it stay selected, despite the fact that I have the “graphics tablet” checkbox selected (unselecting it doesn’t fix anything.)

    This only happens on the Windows version of C4D, not the Mac version, and it works fine with a regular mouse, just not the wireless one that came with my Wacom. It’s a minor annoyance, but it would be nice if it didn’t do that.

    Must be one of those things that separates the Intuous from the cheaper Bamboo that I have.

    Possibly. I know with the Intuos 3, there is a “mouse” checkbox in the mapping attributes (or something to that effect). Is there something similar with the Bamboo? I don’t think it comes with any crazy software like the Intuos…

    Oh, I hadn’t thought of that. I’ll look at the options in the Bamboo software. It has its own crazy software.

    It’s just kind of odd, because the Bamboo acts perfectly normal with every other app besides C4D, and it doesn’t do this on the Mac version either.

    I have noticed this as well in OSX 10.6.2 with the Intuos 3 tablet and the latest update of Cinema 4D 11.5. Can’t click on trees and have them expand. I did find this post (https://forum.wacom.eu/viewtopic.php?f=7&p=10167) on the wacom forum so hopefully there will be an update from either Wacom or Maxon soon.

    I have a similar issue, but I’m in Snow Leopard. As far as I remember my intuos3 used to work fine and all of the sudden I can’t expand trees anymore, other seemingly random functions are also affected. But I can, for example, navigate in the 3D space and move my objects. I have C4D R11. Any solutions yet?

    I have an intuos3 (PTZ) working with Snow Leopard, the following link to the latest driver update released on march 15, 2010 solved the issue for me.

    Here’s the actual description from Wacom regarding what this driver fixes:

    Driver 6.1.5-2 for Mac OS X v. 10.6, 10.5 & 10.4 (Intel & PPC G4+)

    Release Date: Mar. 15, 2010
    Size: 17.3MB

    Driver supporting Intuos4 WL, USB versions of all Intuos4 (PTK), Intuos3 (PTZ), Intuos2 (XD), Intuos (GD) and Graphire2 (ET-0405A) pen tablets and the Cintiq 21UX (2nd Gen.), 12WX, 20WSX, 21UX, 18SX, and 15X pen displays.

    Save the file to your computer and then double-click on “Install Wacom Tablet” to launch the installer.

    NOTE:
    This driver fixes some issues with the Intuos4 WL.
    This driver includes a bug fix for Maxon Cinema 4D.
    For concurrent use with a consumer tablet from Wacom, install this driver as well as driver version 5.05 or later. These two drivers can be added or removed independently of each other.

    I already tested it and it works.

    Sorry for the extra posts, either the website or the internet connection are behaving weirdly today.

    Best,
