prompts to complete the installation. After the installation, a TabletWorks icon is
shown on the bottom-right corner of the desktop.

Puck to the appropriate jack on the digitizer’s connector panel.

connect the other end to anyone of the USB ports on your computer or USB hub. The
digitizer should beep, indicating it is powered ON.
5. Double click the TabletWorks icon, which is on the bottom-right corner of your
desktop, to open up the TabletWorks control panel. Click the Refresh List button to

command to open the Options dialog. On the upper-left part of the System tab, select
the Wintab compatible Digitizer ADI 4.2 as the Current Pointing Device and the
Accept input from: Digitizer and mouse (Below as shown). If the default selection
for Current Pointing Device is Wintab already and the Accept input from radio

Current Pointing Device first to active it, and then back to Wintab.

Puck Layout is set to 1 if you have a Carlson Puck. If you have a different type of
