Customizing progeCAD - Using a digitizer tablet

Configuring the tablet

Before you begin to configure the tablet, slip the tablet overlay underneath the tablet's plastic cover, and align it in accordance with the directions for your tablet. If your tablet does not have a plastic cover, align the overlay holes with the pegs on your tablet.

progeCAD provides a default configuration for tablets measuring 12" by 12". If you choose to accept the default, be sure to verify that the commands in the grid are activated correctly. If the default alignment does not work for your tablet, you'll need to begin the configuration process again and align the tablet yourself.

To configure the tablet for menu input
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose Tools > Tablet > Configure.
  3. Type tablet, choose Configure, and then press Enter.
  4. In response to the prompt to align the tablet, do one of the following:
  5. If your tablet is 12" by 12", choose No to accept the default alignment and conclude the configuration process.
  6. To align the tablet yourself, choose Yes, and then continue with step 3.
