Guide: Customising your Wacom Tablet for Maya

As there is no documentation for configuring Wacom Tablets in the Maya User Manual; I have written a quick guide here to set the Wacom (Inteous 3) tablet properties for Maya:

The following instructions describe how to set the pen properties for the middle and right click functions (Track and Dolly) when the Alt key is pressed and the pen tip is positioned within 0.25 inches above the tablet surface and moved in a sideways or up and down motion.

NoteThe Track and Dolly functions do not work if the pen tip touches the tablet surface with this option. These settings have been verified to work great with Wacom Inteous 3 and Maya.

1. Open the Wacom Control Panel.

2. Add a new application and browse to Maya Application.

3. Modify the properties so that the Right Click and Middle Click functions are configured on the side switches of the pen barrel, as follows:

Customising your Wacom Tablet for Maya

Camera Action, Mouse Action, Pen Tablet Action:

Tumble (Alt + Left button):
Press the Alt key then drag the pen tip on the tablet surface. The camera tumbles about its center of interest in the 3D view.

Track (Alt + Middle button):
Press the Alt key then press the side switch on the pen barrel for the middle mouse button. Move the pen sideways while the pen tip is postioned slightly above the tablet surface. The camera moves sideways or up and down in the 3D view.

Dolly (Alt + Right button)
Press the Alt key then press the side switch on the pen barrel for the right mouse button. Move the pen sideways while the pen tip is positioned slightly above the tablet surface. The camera moves towards or away from its center of interest in the 3D view.
