I use a wacom tablet on windows 10. I disabled the screen touch option and got rid of the annoying circles that kept popping up when I first got the system. But, lo and behold, this morning my old friend is back, and he won't go away! When I right button with the pen, there his is, and NOTHING I've tried and nothing I've read online seems to address the problem! Has anyone seen this or found a fix for this? Thanks137296 I forgot to mention, it only comes up when I right mouse click the pen.

You have to disable the right click option in the Windows own pen options. :(
Unfortunately, that seems to mean that Modeller doesn't accept right clicks using that button any longer, using the Wacom. BUT, it does get rid of the circle thing.

so if I understand you correctly, are you're saying, there's nothing I can do to fix this since I've already done that? and Im not sure what "the circle thing" is you're referring to.

Have you considered just dropping back and reset everything to defaults & see where that puts things? I suspect you're spending a lot of time chasing your own tail at this point with some obscure or conflicting setting.

I've an Intuos Pro medium on Win 7 and can't even recall the circles but have read about them. Is that an option of some sort BTW, & is it with the Pen or the Tablet?

Yeah, these are the settings I was on about. I've never had them come back on my system... but they are annoying.

Just do a quick google search - I've had this problem off and on for the last 6 years with Win7 and each time all it takes is some googling. :) I use my Wacom as a mouse and right/middle clicking is a necessity.

Thanks guys, I guess you don't believe me when I say, I've SCOURED the internet looking for a solution, but Instill haven't found what I'm lookin for, right Bono? And again, this problem only seems to happen in Light wave. Photoshop doesn't do this! Or Blender either. I'm on a plane now, but to nite I will try and look up these links, but I'm out of town for a week, so I'll have to get back to it then. Thanks so much for the support. Much appreciated.

The problem is Windows won't sit down after you've told it what to do. This tablet garbage, it constantly wants to think you're using some built-in Windows tablet and changes your settings from what you've set. It gets triggered by certain events which I haven't been able to pinpoint, but it shouldn't happen.
