Having problems with your Wacom Cintiq 12WX Interactive Pen Display Monitor ?

Problem with Cintiq 12wx

\015 I can't seem to get my cintiq to act as a dual monitor. It only responds as a tablet for my primary monitor. I can't find any solutions online.\015

I had the same issue and it took me a couple of hours to find the solution, until I stumble upon this blog:

I have a Macbook Pro and use the DVI Cable. Here is this the solution:

"First, you need to change the tablet's focus from the Cintiq screen to\012 the main desktop screen. This is easy to do, just open System \012Preferences>Wacom Tablet. Make sure you have highlighted the "Cintiq \01212wx" on the "Tablet" window across the top part of the preference \012window, and then click on "Calibration". Change "Monitor" from "Cintiq \012(2)" to whatever your main display (1) is. What will happen now is that \012the Cintiq will act like a regular Wacom tablet and moving around on it \012will move the cursor on your main screen. Do not panic, this is \012expected.\012Now open System Preferences>Displays. You will see a window pop up\012 on both monitors. The main one will be a little different, as it will \012have "Arrangement" and "Options" as choices not on the other box. Click \012"Arrangement" and drag the white menu bar from the left display square \012to the top of the right one. A red border appears on the display that is\012 actively selected as the main desktop as you do this.
\012The result will be that now your menu bar and dock will be on your \012Cintiq, and the pen will again function correctly on the screen. Hide \012the dock if it's in your way. Again, this is a personal preference on \012may part and does not affect the functions of the Cintiq in any way."

Hope it helps!
Hi...there Jenn!
\015\012Go to your toolbar bottom r/h side, look for VGA Display Icon. Open it and look for dual monitor setup. It's might be what you has been looking for... If not, read your cintiq user guide... Have a nice day!

My Wacom Cintiq 12wx suddenly began to stop recognizing all input from the pen unless I'm working in photoshop. As soon as that window isn't selected it stops following all movement, including when I open tablet properties and try to calibrate the thing.
