Calibration #1

When i change the offset for my pen it only works for that particular , so in general it is not calibrating to the 4 corners of the screen and only from the centre of the screen, so if i move closer to the edge of the screen the further away the cursor gets. i don't know if i'm doing something wrong or if i have my settings wrong or my wacom driver is messing with this one.. seems to be the only issue so far

I've also noticed a little bit of offset. I had my screen in 1920x1080 (virtualized high def); which I thought was the problem.

I'll try and investigate it this weekend.

@Niall01

I got it working last night perfectly , but a part of the screen was unusable for the Pen, But once i restarted my computer this morning everything i did seemed worthless and am having the same problem again when the cursor moves away from the pen the further away from the centre of the screen you go, I am Going to assume that it is just the display settings fighting with each other, is there any particular setting i need to have my Mac's display settings alongside the Bosto's display settings.

@georgejecook

This is a bug. Can you please tell me your resolution. I use 1920x1080, and i notice the problem a bit by the edges - not really very much, but a little bit...

What device do you have? 19ma/19mb?
What os are you running?
What resolution are you running?

@Niall01

At the moment My display settings are,
iMac Resolution : 1920x1080
Bosto Resolution : 1440x900
I was running Snow leopard 10.6.8 , but the driver needed 10.8 or higher, so i have upgraded my operating system as of last night to Mountain Lion OS X 10.8.3.

And i have a Bosto Kingtee 19mb

I am running OSX 10.8.3 Mountain Lion.
Tablet model, 19MB

@thadrazdow

I'm having this issue as well. mid 2009 macbook pro, osx 10.8.3. effect is exaggerated when in mirroring mode, but happens either way. I have tried disabling mous acceleration in lion with no effect. any updates on this?

@Niall01

Hi, i'm not exactly very technical minded here, but i had the same problem and as a short term solution i have found if your offset is still off by a lot then a suggestion would be what i did, now this is just a short term solution for me you don't have to take this into consideration because im sure it's probably more hassle in the long run than is needed, i'm just using it this way until George has had enough time to develop his driver more,

The way i have got my offset as close as i possibly can is i have stopped using the VGA cable to my mac and instead have started using HDMI to mini display port that or DVI to mini display, this way when you are in your display settings in your system preferences it gives you an option for "Overscan" and i have found it works much better with mirrored displays as well with your bosto as the primary monitor, Now if you turn overscan off it will change your display size by a good bit, but in result it will keep your cursor under the pen and it only strays by a few millimetres but nothing to much to complain about in my case. you will lose some drawing estate to work with but it's an ok solution if you have enough time with the tablet to wait for some updates on the driver. This might be an invalid solution in some cases but i though I would throw it in there for whatever little help it may serve.

@Niall01

Also for what i just suggested you need to have the driver installed but the driver menu closed for some reason, i think it's because of the offset problems with the X and Y axis on the driver i'm not sure but that is how i got mine to work to the best of it's capabilities in these early stages of development

@fredewis

im having the same problem I have a macbook pro on osx 10.8.3
would be great to be able to use this tablet if there is anyway i can help would be great.

@georgejecook

@fredewis

ooo do you mean general as in the bosto driver general ...or mac os general setting ?

@georgejecook
@fredewis

yes i selected the bosto ...will try again in a bit my house mate has desided to plug her windows pc on it to give it a spin -_-.

@fredewis

no no difference :(

@fredewis

Hi George you probably busy just wondered if you had any chance on tinkering with the driver and if there is anything I can do for you?

@bsimser

@georgejecook Just wondering if you can build the driver for an older OSX? I'm running 10.7.5 but the driver I just tried needs 10.8. Or is it not compatible? Also it's interesting as I flipped over to OSX from Windows and with no driver loaded, I still get pressure sensitivity inside of SketchBook Pro. The calibration is off by a few inches and I have no way of adjusting it though.

@fredewis

sorry for the bother just wondered if there is any news on future fixes
