I've got the book "Inside LightWave [8]", and I'm working through the first chapter. I've drawn a butterfly, and it says I need to use the DRAG tool to tweak the shape. I've selected the DRAG tool and when I hold the button down on a point and start moving the mouse, the point flies down and to the left, and the more i move the mouse, the further it goes away from where it started.

No matter what, I can't get fine movements with the DRAG tool. What am I doing wrong?

Oh yeh, I don't use a mouse, instead I've got a Wacom graphics tablet.. I don't know if that makes any difference or not?

It may do, set your input to tablet in prefs and see if that helps.

wow, is it that easy...

Changed it to Tablet input and it works perfectly.

Thanks so much for your help, very much appreciated! :bowdown:
