Genius Graphics Tablet hotkey problem win7

Q: Genius Graphics Tablet hotkey problem win7

Hello TechSupportGuy Fora,

Win7 64bit user here, if that helps.
I recently purchased a Genius F509 Graphics Tablet and it is amazing!
I am currently trying to modify the hotkeys on it using the provided software, MacroKeys Manager.
The way it works is this:
Create a new profile (default settings cannot be changed)
Select a key
Check 'Setting'
Write a descriptive hint
Select a hot key combination or link to a file/program
Click Confirm

Below is an example of a working key in my Custom profile:
My problem is this: The default settings include a hotkey which opens the aero desktop window switcher thingy (Ctrl + Windows key + Tab on a keyboard), and I would like my custom profile to do the same. I have imitated the default profile's settings in my custom profile, but the hotkey does nothing when the custom profile is activated.

Screenshots:
I have looked through the installation disk, and found the default settings file, called windows7.ini in the system32 folder. I checked it and it only contains data pertaining to MacroKey Manager. Looking down the list, I find the data which describes the setup for the pad I am using. This is the only one which sets key #22 to aero window switching.
Code:
[MacroKey_0038_0]
MacroKey1=^N
MacroKeyMode1=1
MacroKeyName1=New
KeyComboIdx1=13
DefaultMacro1=1
MacroKey2=^O

MacroKeyMode21=2
MacroKeyName21=MacroKey Manager
KeyComboIdx21=
DefaultMacro21=1
MacroKey22=Window Switcher
MacroKeyMode22=7
MacroKeyName22=Program Switch
KeyComboIdx22=
DefaultMacro22=1
MacroKey23=+
MacroKeyMode23=1
MacroKeyName23=Zoom-in
KeyComboIdx23=0
DefaultMacro23=1
MacroKey24=-
MacroKeyMode24=1
MacroKeyName24=Zoom-out
KeyComboIdx24=0
DefaultMacro24=1
MacroKey25=magnify.exe
MacroKeyMode25=2
MacroKeyName25=Magnifier
KeyComboIdx25=
DefaultMacro25=1
Looking at the MacroKeyMode22 value, I notice it is set to 7.
The first key, which effectively presses Ctrl+N, has the value MacroKeyMode1=1 and KeyComboIDx1=13. N is the fourteenth letter of the alphabet, and the pattern continues with Ctrl+O (14), Ctrl+P (15), etc. Presumably 0 refers to the letter A.
I have a strong hunch that MacroKeyMode[x] refers to the combination of Ctrl, Shift and Alt which have been pressed, and that it reads from left to right as shown in the screenshots above. If that is the case, then the combinations are probably numbered thus:
0 No special keys
1 Ctrl
2 Shift
3 Alt
4 Ctrl+Shift
5 Ctrl+Alt
6 Shift+Alt
7 Ctrl+Shift+Alt

The trouble is, Ctrl+Windows Key is required for the window switchy thing, so I guessed that although the windows key might not be in the menu, there might still be a value for it. That would go like this:
0 No special keys
1 Ctrl
2 Shift
3 Alt
4 Windows Key
5 Ctrl+Shift
6 Ctrl+Alt
7 Ctrl+Windows Key
8 Shift+Alt
...etc

I can't find any file which contains the custom profiles, just the default ones.
If I could find it I would modify it with my own configuration.

The only other ways I can think of solving this are:
-create a shortcut to the aero switchy wotsit, and have the hotkey point to that; I believe it is buried somewhere in system32.dll
-Modify the default settings (notice the DefaultMacro[x] values?) using the .ini file I found. I would prefer -to do this without modifying the manufacturer's settings if possible.

Any ideas/help?
Thanks for reading this far,
Ubern00b

Purchased a Genius F610 Pen Tablet "on Sale". (Hmm? And there were no other products from this company in the whole store?! .....Should have seen the warning sign!)

Problem 1: if the pen is more than 3 inches away from the tablet for more than 15 seconds, it takes a while for the tablet to recognize the pen again. Not good. Changing the battery or reinstalling the drivers does not help. This is not limited to my pc.

Read that Wacom had a similare problem and that many of their pens were defective. Replacing the pens helped. However, some found that turning off the clicking sound solved this issue for them.

Problem 2: what "genius" at Genius thought it would be a good idea not to include the option to shut off the clicking sound in the " starving for company", 2 tabs, options section of their product? Did they think to ask anyone? Yes, "Bill" down the street may be happy to put in his 2 cents even if he did know how to turn on a computer, but how about asking someone who actually would use a pen tablet for hours per day?

Going to "Sounds..." in Control Panel doesn't help. This seems to be ... Read more

This shouldn't be to hard of a question to solve:

How do you configure My Documents or My Pictures to a hot key/cell?

I have a Genius G-Pen F610, and running on Windows XP. I just can't find the command or executable file to stick in the "Link" field for it to work. I really don't know where it would be located, all I got is under the "WINDOWS" folder. It may not even be their either, and when I try to look at the preset that is there for the tablet the My Document has "0x0005" in the link field. I attempted just using that to make it work but it doesn't do anything.

My Genius i608 in GIMP <edited by moderator> - is not working

Either way, there have only been a few of us Genius owners raising the question with no solution as of yet but thought you all might know.

Genius Customer Support offers the solution "Save up and buy Photoshop."

As ironic as that sounds, I'm believing that is the only solution.

I can't complain because GIMP is free and it is nice that someone at least attempted to do with photo editing what Blender did with 3D modeling but I'm guessing if I were doing something serious with photos, I'm going to have to get PS anyway.

The problem also happens in Inkscape ( Yeah, I know, solution is 'Illustrator') because they use the same program for syncing pen tablets.

If someone does have an answer, it would be cool to hear it. Otherwise GIMP is just my image cropper, resizer and converter and Dogwaffle is my serious art studio.

Normally, I've been quite pleased with Wacom tablets. The Bamboo, though small and lower end, has been quite accurate and reliable. Found a Genius F610 for sale and thought: "Why not!?"..... however, I should have read the reviews first since this turned out to be a clear cut example of "you get what you pay for".

Problems: if the pen is idle for a couple minutes, the tablet refuses to recognize it. No amount of tapping on the side or top or clicking the button helps. I have to go into settings and simply click "OK" every time just to get started.

Second, there is a terrible delay. The curser follows my movement about a half second behind me. Reinstalling the tablet and even downloading their latest driver does nothing. Using USB 2 port does nothing. Shutting off ALL the programs except for the OS does nothing. And I'm not alone in this since this problem is VERY common with Genius F610 tablets. (Aparently the reviews aren't the best for their products in general by many people.)

Does anyone know of any magical solution to any of these two problems? I've found many searching for these answers, but no solutions yet. Personally, I'd never recomment Genius tablets to anyone. Sure some have been quite pleased, but many have not. It's more or less a crap shoot. And, No Thanks, I prefer something reliable.

Sorry, also felt like venting.

Thanks for any input.

Hello everyone,

I bought a new Genius Easypen i405X tablet 2 days ago, and followed the Driver installation steps carefully (Installing the driver first then plugging in the tablet later), and started testing the device.

Everything was great except for a small annoying problem, when I hover the pen over the tablet surface about 1-2 cm away (without touching the surface with the tip) the mouse pointer clicks on the screen, usually a Right-Click. sometimes it drags items from the desktop at the area where I point the pen, or highlight text..

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x32, I tried the tablet on a laptop with windows XP, and it worked fine without any problems, not clicking when hovering at all. I tried it on another laptop with Windows 7, and the problem occurred again.
I'm guessing it's because of something in the windows but can't figure out what it is!

I've tried changing the tip, hitting the pen on it's side gently to release the pressure thingy in case it was stuck, changed batteries.. etc. (those are solutions I found on other sites) but none of them worked.

Please help, I want to use my tablet

For Christmas I got this Graphics Tablet, because I love to draw and I was wanting to get into Photoshop. For about a month, it worked fine... now it doesn't for some odd reason. To activate its wireless pen, you are suppose to just tap it onto the surface of the tablet... now whenever I do that, it doesn't work at all.

I tried replacing the battery, and nothing. I tried taking it apart to see if anything was wrong with it, but the bottom half is glued together so I don't want to risk taking it apart, only to have it be broken permanently. I used a bobby pen and pushed it inside where the tip usually goes (the tip is removable), and it worked about a week ago. I was drawing just fine. Now, for some reason, it stopped working again, and doing this same thing that worked last time does nothing for me now. I think that the pen just isn't registering with the tablet, or the tablet is somehow damaged (I take it with me and put it in my laptop bag... it might get squished in there or something, I can't say but I wouldn't think so..).

Dratted new laptop  (Lenovo G505) came with Win 8.  I had a Win7 install CD and license key, so I figured why not?
The rest is a bit of a nightmare... Windows installed perfectly, but was missing drivers for some of the USB ports, networking and WiFi.  Found those on the Lenovo site, but even after hunting everywhere, could not find a couple of drivers so things are infuriatingly wonky (as opposed to lovably wonky!). 
The mouse (touchpad) is doing an annoying hover-to-click thing I cannot seem to turn off, but most significantly, the hotkeys are only barely working and I cannot seem to adjust the monitor brightness no matter what I do.  I've got it so the volume (F1-F3) and all function keys are working, but the brightness-up key does NOTHING, while the brightness-down key shows a blank "fuel gauge" indicating that there is NO brightness, while in reality, it's turned up all the way and barely watchable.  :-(
 
Any suggestions for either or all of these woes???
I think it's disgusting how the Microsoft/Lenovo monopolists are still working hand-in-hand to make a system that is dysfunctional without Windows 8.  :-(

I have Win7 64-bit on a Lenovo U510 laptop. This system has a combination of Intel HD 4000 and nVidia GT 625M graphics that I don't understand very well. Everything was fine for the year or so I've owned it until recently, when it started exhibiting a strange combination of symptoms .....

- Messages "Do you want to change the color scheme to improve performance?"
- Copy and paste isn't working. When I copy, either there is no paste option at the destination, and/or it pastes what seems to be a current screen shot.
-Slow graphics performance - when I try to move Windows around on the screen, there's delays, hesitation, jerky movement ...

I ran MalwareBytes and found and removed the PUP.Optional.Softonic malware. Other virus scans have been clean. I cannot see any high-CPU use processes in the performance monitor, or spot any other problems. I reinstalled both the Intel and nVidia graphics drivers, no joy. I've never encountered anything like this before, but I suppose my best guess is a virus or a hardware problem. Recommendations to diagnose and/or fix appreciated.

Welcome everyone, I am a new here

I have been suffering BSOD problems recently on my desktop. As far as I was able to notice, most of them appear during or after a high cpu/gpu usage. For instance:
1) when I try to open a very high resolution movie (3840x1080) in MPC or another media player with DXVA enabled, my computer crashes - I see a blue screen with atikmpag.sys driver issue and memory dumping proccess and then the machine restarts
2) you've probably noticed, during normal computer usage (listening to music, surfing the net) there are little moments when windows is not responding for a second and then everyting comes back to order. In my case, everytime after that little freeze I see a BSOD and machine restarts.
3) when playing some games (Metin 2 for example - really low requirements, an average cpu usage and almost no gpu usage) - after I quit an application the Aero interface doesn't show up, I see default non-aero light blue color theme, besides that computer behaves normally, but after some time another BSOD appears and the machine restarts.

Check your RAM sticks.

How-To test RAM to see if it's the cause of BDOSs (Blue Screen Of Death):

0. (Something you should always do before opening your computer no matter if it's a desktop
or a laptop): Unplug electricity, take out the battery (laptop), and hold the power button
for 5- 10 seconds to drain it for all power.

1. Open your computer up, to get to the RAM stick(S).
(If you've got a laptop, you ought to download the usermanual for your laptop from your
laptop's manufacturer's website to see where the RAM sockets are located.)

2. Take all except 1 stick out of their socket, make sure to have that 1 that's left in the
first RAM socket.

3. Run untill the computer crashes, and/or run memtest86+ (http://www.memtest.org/#downiso).

4. Repeat step 2-3 with every RAM stick.

Tips:
When buying RAMs, buy them in pairs of 2 or more, that way they're matching eachother,
and will have the best effect.
Buy good quality RAMs when purchasing. We recommend Corsair, Crucial, or OCZ.

I'm on an E Machines ET1831 with onboard video. I was running 2 monitors by using a PCI video card along side the onboard video.

Suddenly, the computer crashed, and would not post unless I pulled the video card out. So i got a new PCI card, same problem.

Waited overnight, now it will boot but won't let me use both monitors. If I go into BIOS and make the onboard display the default, it works, but the PCI card doesn't. I can also do the opposite, and use only the PCI card with onboard disabled.

In Device mgr, it says PCI-to-PCI bridge won't start, error 10.
Display manager won't detect 2nd monitor.

Why would the computer suddenly stop allowing me to use both on board and PCI card video? I tried reinstalling drivers, resetting CMOS by taking battery out. Tried restoring computer to a week before the problem began.

Ok, I bought this as a starter tablet, b/c i wasn't sure how well it would work out for me, and I didn't want to spend tons of money on something i may or may not like...so it comes to me and I follow the manual step by step to download and install the drivers. Come to find out XP is not supported like advertised..find the XP drivers on another forum after googling...the PROBLEM is ....if I plug it in while the puter is on, it don't work...except it messes up my regular mouse...if I unplug it, cold reboot, then plug it in before starting back up...it works for about 3 minutes before it quits. I went back to the other forum that I d/l the drivers from, tried EVERY single suggestion, and still nuttin...any ideas?

I have a graphic tablet and pen that I use for drawing. Can't draw with a mouse to save my life lol so I either use the pen or draw with a lead pencil and paper and then trace it with the pen. So I draw in paint and then copy and paste the pic into infanview so I can save as a gif (and resize if needed) and when I open the picture again the soild black outline has become many shades of grey which then makes it harder to further edit the pic and means it never looks as good. Can I stop this happening?

I have been having a very frustrating problem with my laptop. By the way, I am using a Windows Vista Service Pack 2 Compaq Presario CQ50-211NR Notebook PC and a Belkin Wireless Router. Two days ago, my internet stopped working on my laptop and I got a message saying that something (I can't remember exactly what the name was but it was Burk-something) was in my network. After that, my laptop couldn't even see other networks nor could I turn on my firewall. This happened after my subscription to Norton ran out. I couldn't ask Windows for help or open certain programs either. I ran a virus scan and nothing was found. Yesterday, I performed a system restore and I could connect to my network but it wouldn't connect to the internet. Now today, I tried to connect to the internet through my wireless connection, and it still didn't work and now, I can't even connect to my network. I know it is my laptop because I have an Ipod Touch that connects to the network just fine. I have a Desktop PC and I tried to plug and ethernet from the modem and the router to my laptop and it won't let me connect still, but I did the same thing at my brother's house and it worked just fine. Does anyone have a solution to this problem because I'm all out of answers.

I bought a brand new webcam Genius 312 v1.1, and although it said on the manual instruction not to plug the camera's USB into the computer before installing the driver from the installation CD, I didn't read it in time, so I DID do it . Now I can't install the driver from the CD. At the very end of installation process, I get this message in a window:

Everyone,
Somehow in my surfing I got a bug. It redirects my home page to scanthenet.com on open and when I try to see www.yahoo.com or www.google.com. Otherwise it seems ok. Unfortunately it is also sending out my personal information. See below:

I have used Adaware 6.0. It found some trouble but not the bad one. I tried Spy Sweeper. It found the bad one. I deleted the troubled files but everytime it comes back. [I think it has corrupted my registry.] I used Spybot Search and Destroy. It found the problem and did say the registry was corrupted and supposedly fixed it but the trouble came right back. So.....I need an expert to advise me what I can do. In the meantime I am preparing to wipe the C: drive and reload everything from scratch. But if someone can show me how to kill the bug without spending the entire day reloading all my software from scratch, I would happily bow in whatever direction they come from.

Going to buy my first tablet, just wondering if anyone can offer any advice. Read a few articles, some say a beginner should get a small tablet, others say get the biggest you can with your budget?

I'm only going to be using it in photo shop and some basic graphic programmes, i'm not looking for anything top of the range, probably with a budget of say 50. I've been looking at a Wacom A6 tablet thats around 30, probably drawn to it by the name more than anything else!

If anyone can offer some advice on tablets in general it would be much appreciated!
Cheers

I hope this is the right section.

I am running a windows Vista (Compaq) AMD Athalon 2 processor,32 bit.
My problem is with the Manhattan USB graphics tablet (model no 174459) I purchased 2 months back.
It worked fine until this weekend.
Now, when I plug it in,I get an error message that reads :" USB Device not recognized. One of the usb devices connected to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it. Click here to solve this problem."

I click and it just shows the usb hub things.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software multiple times and contacted tech support(the driver they gave me was no help).
I purchased the tablet from Amazon and the seller's warranty went out a month back.
I hope I haven't wasted seventy dollars.
Please help me.

I may be missing something obvious here, but I can't seem to find the setting that allows me to configure the sensitivity for my graphics tablet. I've searched all through the Pen options in the Control Panel, but I can't find anything. I've searched through all the related menus, too, but still nothing.

Hey Adam1111,

Did you already check here: Open Tablet PC Settings by tapping the Start button > then tapping Control Panel. In the search box, type Tablet PC Settings, and then, in the list of results, tap Tablet PC Settings.

Can you provide more information about your computer specs?

Hi all,

I've just bought my first graphics tablet, it's a Wacom Bamboo A6 pad. I've never used one before and it's taking a bit of time to get used to but I'm having a couple of problems. It's great where it was intended to be used, in Photoshop, but anywhere outside of the canvas is a bit tricky. The main problem is I can't single-click anything. I touch the pen against the surface once but it registers it as 2 taps and it's making everything very difficult. I have adjusted the double-click speed in the control panel to both extremes but it doesn't seem to make a difference. This means I cant select a file without it opening, move a window (because it maximises when i double-click on the title bar) amongst other things.

The other problem seems to be because I have a dual monitor set-up. When I try and write on the screen, my handwriting appears really stretched length-wize.

Any help please??

Thanks in advance.

BTW, I'm running Vista Ultimate (hella-buggy) with two 19'' widescreen monitors, if that helps.

Hey, I regularly make flash movies and recently decided to get a tablet to make it alot easier. I was originaly going to get a Wacom Graphire 3 because the sound great, but now i'v heard about one called a wp8060u from UcLogic. It has 1024 pressure levels and the Wacom only has 512 and its only $130 and the Wacom is $260. I was just wondering if anyone knows which is the best out of 2 to buy. Im sure the Wacom must have something thats better about it if its that much more expensive.
Thank-you in advance for your help
 

A:Dont know what graphics tablet to get

Ive read good reports on this one: http://www.datavis.com/product.jsp?prid=452 They also make a 12 model.

I have a Wacom Intuos 12 tablet and like it. I think the resolution and accuracy is more important than the number of pressure levels.

$260 seems a little high for a 6 X 8 Graphire. http://shopping.com/xPC-Wacom_GRAPHIRE3_BLUE_6X8USB_TABLET_W_PEN_MOUSE_INCLUDE_POWERSUITE~S-P~OR-0

Alright I have graphics designing as a hobby
I purchased a cheap graphics tablet for Rs. 2,500 ( Approx USD 50 )
Its small and pretty local
Its sold by a company - Techcomindia.com
The model number of the tablet is SSD-PT-4030
Googling it up I didn't find anything
It comes with a try and buy version of Corel Painter 8 ( I am not interested in it though )
Its pressure sensitive ( 1024 levels of pressure ) and the tablet has hot cells to start different programs by touching them with the stylus
It also has support for handwriting recognition, pen scrolling and comes with a PenSuite
OK enough of the description of the tablet
Now for the problem

When I brought it, I used it for quite some time.
Then slowly I started getting less interested to graphics designing and started other stuff. But it stayed connected to my PC, the stylus in the holder that came with it.
Then I thought I should pack it up and take it out when I need it.
Packed it up and kept it in the box it came in.
Now after some time I tried it again but this time the moment i connected the tablet, the tablet seemed to have developed a brain of its own
The cursor ( mouse pointer), moved around like anything vibrating to the left and right, left clicking, right clicking and doing all that a mouse can do.
Jumping around and stuff, getting worried, I disconnected the tablet
After some time again I tried again, and after some messing around I have found when this problem is popping up.
The moment the stylus goes out ... Read more

A:Graphics Tablet messed up

It sound like the pen/tablet communications is either wireless or LF inductive in nature.

Is it possible that something else is now "in range" that is giving false signals when the stylus is out of range (the tablet will be "searching" for it at this stage and if anything else is detectable in the frequency range used it could give your problem)?

I've been thinking of getting a tablet for photo retouching and other graphic manipulations. Now this is strictly a 'toy' at this time and I'm trying to save for a better camera, so I can't justify a huge expense. It would probably have to be a used unit or one of the lower end ones. The other problem is that I'm not really familiar enough with the features of tablets to be able to differentiate between them.

I did have the opportunity recently to play a bit with an older Acecat serial tablet. It had some problems - cursor jumping around unexpectedly - so I couldn't really give it a workout. One impression I had, though, was that although the working surface was fairly small - 5x5 - I didn't feel particularly restricted. In fact, after the relatively limited movement required with a mouse, I had difficulty using the full working area of the tablet. With that in mind, would I be all right with one of the smaller Wacom Graphire tablets or are there other advantages to the larger ones that would reveal themselves with use?

Can anyone suggest what features I should be looking for or recommend specific makes/models to consider. Links to reviews or articles on tablet selection would also be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any input.

It works OK on my new twin Celeron PC under W2000 but will not work correctly on 2 other PC's running W95. Calibrates in wrong place and scans wrong area resulting in partial images or blank images.

Hello
My problem is as follows: i have reinstalled winxp(Home Edition), i formatted my c partition and installed windows, afterwards i installed all updates(from microsoft) and all codecs(divx xvid even codecs packs).
Since then every movie i play no matter what player, there is a gap between the audio and video. The movie files are just fine they don't have a sync problem. The problem is not with codecs because it doesn't play well mpeg file and DVD movies.
Furthermore, it seems to me that even in windows itself there is a problem, for example in error message i see the box and afterwards hear the beep.
Before the reinstallation there were no problems, i tried reinstalling again(it's the third time) and nothing.
There are no hardware problems since i haven't change anything, and i tried different sound and video card and i still have the problem.
Please help me. any suggestions will be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I have recently purchased a "Genius Vivid Pro II Film" scanner - a flatbed with facilities for scanning transparencies and negatives. I just can't get the hang of the settings for transparencies - it is almost accidental if I get a result. The same settings don't give the same results twice in a row. Also can't get any scan from a neg. Software is Genius Version 1.4. I looked at the Genius web site and they only have V1.1 posted. Anyone out there solved these problems?
 

A:{SOLVED}Genius Vivid Pro II Film problem

That question is going to be tough to answer unless someone here uses that program and had the same problem. My thought is that if you just purchased it--doesn't if have free telephone tech support? If not, you might want to consider taking it back and trading for something else--one that offers you free support initially.

Hi,
This is probably a little off the beaten path on this forum but figure at least its a place to start. I was given a new ATT Trek II HD tablet and was wondering if there was a way I could use it to control my WMP 12 wireless and be able to control the volume and switch song tracks?

I have a older Dell Studio 540 w/o wifi but do have USB bluetooth installed on it. What I have is old analog stereo system hooked up thought the headphone out on the PC and thought the RCA AUX in jacks on the preamp this does sound quite good. What I would like to have is some control of the volume at least and even better be able to switch the music tracks.

So I'm thinking that I would just turn on the bluetooth on the tablet and pair it to the pc?

Any help would be great and if this is the wrong area to post please send me in the right direction
