10.4: Restore lost Wacom tablet mapping feature
Authored by: osxpounder on Feb 17, '06 10:52:54AM

lukeandrews,

Yes, I mean that the mapping feature is gone in the latest driver. At least, that's what I experienced, and also what the excellent tech support person at WACOM experienced, writing, "It looks like, in the driver that they show available for the web site, advanced mapping was removed." Hence the link to the "older" driver.

Note the version number. The "previous driver", recommended by the same tech support specialist, is actually numbered 4.94-5. I never noticed until you asked this question, but, hmm, that's a higher version number... and a check of the file dates in each set shows that 4.94-5's files are exactly a year older.

I don't know how much credence to put in those file dates, but it sure looks like WACOM has accidentally offered an older driver instead of the newest one. Maybe there's a reason. Anyway, if you find you lack mapping, that link will get you a driver that includes it. If you depend on tablet mapping, you might want to download that driver just in case they stop offering it, or move the link.
