I'm in no way a graphic artist, but I always had the issue, that I use the mouse with my right hand while I'm left-handed. This is for historical reasons. When I got my first mouse controlled computer (yes, I'm that old) there only was a right handed design, so I learned to use the right hand with the mouse. I simply can't control the mouse with the left hand.
On the other side, on a piece of paper I am only able to draw with my left hand. So I never could draw with the pc.
Now I am the proud owner of my very first pen tablet (yes, I am that slow). It's this one. But the handling confuses me. It covers the whole wide screen (24"), but I would rather prefer that it covers only a part of the screen that I define, so that I can use the right hand (and mouse) for the menus, palettes and such.
Is there any way to do so? The driver offers a tab called "projection" (I'm roughly translating the words from german). There I can select "All screens" or "Section". But it confuses me. When activating "Section" I have to define a rectangle, but I loose the widescreen ratio, if I do so, since all sides move independently. Also, there's an option called "Fixed ratio", but that doesn't affect the rectangle that I define. And last but not least, I also have to choose between a mode. Options there are either "Pen" or "Mouse". What does that mean? How will that change the behavior? And how do I set a widescreen ratio rectangle? And isn't there any possibility to have settings per application? For example, a setting for Photoshop, another for GIMP, another for Inkscape, etc.?
Would love to see some help here. Just imagine talking to a 4 year old child while explaining
