Re: Never mind, got it


What you do is, after going to the data wheel settings in the system prefs panel and selecting the offending function, you select "keystroke", which it's already on, but this brings up a new window. This enables you to change it to send any keystroke with the wheel movement for this function, even though one wouldn't think this is a time to be sending macros. There are upper and lower boxes for entering the keystrokes, but first you have to hit the "clear" button or else what's already there stays too, you can't back delete it. Each box has a "bracket" keystroke in it, [ and ] , so I made note of which they were and cleared the boxes and re-entered them reversed. This did the trick. Cutting and pasting doesn't work because it enters the command in the box instead of doing it.

What's really strange, and I just tested it to make sure, is that since I couldn't find any older Wacom drivers on my drives with just a cursory check, I kept downloading older and older drivers from the site, before I figured this out, thinking one of them would surely just put it back the old way (and I always deleted all Wacom files with the uninstall utility before re-installing). But even going older beyond the driver I had been using, every install was the same: different drivers, data wheel reversed for brush size, even though I never changed it from the original install a few years ago. Weird.
