Known Issues
Affected What you can expect
All Devices All models

On macOS 14, an uninstall of the 6.4.4-2 driver will not delete your Wacom Center/Wacom Tablet Properties settings.

What you can do about it while we fix it: After reinstalling the driver, open Wacom Center and select Global settings (gear icon), then select Reset all settings on either the General settings or Backup & restore tab.

All Devices Models with touch

On macOS 14, four-finger, up and down swipes for Mission Control and Application Windows do not work on devices that have the touch feature.

What you can do about it while we fix it: Use the trackpad or keyboard to access Mission Control and Application Windows.

All Devices All models

You cannot rename desktop objects by clicking them with the Wacom pen.

What you can do about it while we fix it: Use a mouse to rename the desktop objects.

All Devices All models

Intermittent "extra" clicks can occur when using a pen in an application.

What you can do about it while we fix it: If your product is fully supported in Wacom Center: go to the pen settings page, click Advanced, and set Double-tap distance to "Off".

For all other products: go to the Pen tab in Wacom Tablet Properties and set Tip Double Click Distance to "Off".

All Devices All models

If two versions of the same application with the same executable name (e.g. com.adobe.Photoshop) are installed on your Mac, you will not be able to create unique application-specific settings for each version of the application.

What you can do about it while we fix it: If you deleted the previous version of the application on installation and you want to create application-specific settings unique to the newer version: Open Wacom Center, select the Settings icon and click Reset all settings. Then create the new application-specific settings. (Note that you cannot restore your application-specific settings using a backup file).

If you kept both versions of the application on your computer, there is no workaround.

All Devices All models

In a PDF, when your pen tip hovers over the "Move to" dialogue box, a buzzing noise can be heard.

What you can do about it while we fix it: Instead of using your pen, use either the tablet's touch input, or a different pointing device. If the pen is used by mistake, pressing "Esc" will close the dialogue window and the pen will work as expected.

All Devices All models

The cursor may stop moving in some applications during periods of high CPU load.

What you can do about it while we fix it: Reset all settings for your device(s) in the Global settings section of Wacom Center.

All Devices All models

Mission Control shortcuts (Control + Up Arrow, for example) are not working when assigned to tablet buttons such as ExpressKeys.

What you can do about it while we fix it: Go to System Preferences > Mission Control and change the Mission Control shortcut to F12 (for example) and then assign F12 to an ExpressKey.
