Tablet PC calibration error in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator CS3 whilst in Extended Desktop Mode

Hey everyone!
I've run into a snag which hasn't bugged me before because I never used a second monitor, but now that I do, Photoshop and Illustrator don't function properly.
I am running my Adobe products on my Lenovo X61 Thinkpad Tablet, which is Wacom PenEnabled. It's got the basic digitizer pen and pen pressure features, no stylus tilt or anything.
Whenever I run Photoshop or Illustrator in Extended Desktop Mode so I can have a different window open on my external monitor and the Adobe app on my tablet screen, my stylus goes strange. It seems to think that the extended desktop is part of the Adobe window, so when I move my stylus to draw, the cursor will appear on the external monitor, usually proportionate to the size of the screen...ie. It interprets the external and tablet screens as one desktop and the top left corner of my tablet screen is the top left of my external, whilst the bottom right on tablet IS the bottom right on tablet, if that makes any sense...sorry.
So I can't draw anything in photosho unless I set it back to standard desktop mode, or mirrored desktop. I've searched over the net and these forums and I can't find a fix for this. I was walking in harvey norman the other day and the Wacom Cintiq 12" was there on display, and it had the same issue with extended desktop and photoshop.
Has anyone had this issue before and/or does anyone know of a fix for it? I'll keep searching around and playing with the computer until I fix it and I'll post any solutions I find here if noone else has one.
My system details are:
Abobe Photoshop CS3 10.0.0
Adobe Illustrator CS3 13.0.0
OS: Windows Vista Build 6001, Service Pack 1, 32bit
RAM: 2GB
HD: 18.2GB free Disk Space (out of 66.3GB on the Active Partition)
Video: Intel GMA: Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family

I'm using an HP tx2011au tablet pc, using adobe flash cs3 and have the exact same problem. it becomes decalibrated only while the flash window is open, and only while flash has a file open, and only when using an extended desktop. even if flash is open and it has no files open it works fine.

  • Having trouble installing adobe photoshop (and illustrator) cs3

    i have recently reformatted my computer (Windows Vista Business) and am trying to reinstall photoshop cs3 from a dvd and am having some problems.  This dvd installed fine about a year ago when we upgraded the computer from xp to vista but now when i can get the dvd going (sometimes it freezes the computer) i get a couple of notifications:

    i am currently working my way through this troubleshooting guide http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/400/kb400992.html but nothing has worked yet so i figured i'd see what the forum could tell me.  any assistance would be greatly appreciated! 

    now i was able to copy the entire contents of the dvd to my desktop, and since that worked i attempted the install from the dvd.  as stated above everything seemed to be going fine but now it says installation completed

  • How do I turn off the alt scroll zoom?  When I'm in Adobe photoshop and illustrator using the pen tool, alt is utilized for another short cut.  I would like to use the alt command for the pen tool instead of zooming into the screen.

    How do I turn off the alt scroll zoom? 
    When I'm in Adobe photoshop and illustrator using the pen tool, alt is utilized for another short cut.  I would like to use the alt command for the pen tool instead of zooming into the screen.

    I tend to select things from left to right and every time I am moving in a downward right diagonal motion during lasso selection I am missing a clear view and I am tending to have a more sloppy selection.  All this does is slow me down since I need to go back and hit those areas again.  The big arrowhead just get's in the way.  The original lasso tool with the thin line and small active point at it's lower left was far better for me.
    I don't like turning the cursors to precise because I like to see the active tool icon where my cursor is and as the icon changes as I hold modifier keys down.  If I am forced to get comfortable with using pricise cursors I guess I will, but man, I've never had to do this in my 15 years of photoshop use...
    I would absolutely LOVE to find a way to get the old lasso icon -- without the arrowhead above it.
    Is there any chance this option could be inlcuded in cursor preferences?  I'd give much thanks, Adobe.

  • How do I activate my Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator applications now that I have upgraded to Mavericks?

    Since I have upgraded to Mavericks MacOSX 10.9.1  -  I am unable to open either my Adobe Photoshop CS and Adobe Illustrator CS programmes. Is there a simple solution to this? My QuarkXpress 9.3 programme made the change over successfully! 

    If all you did was install Mavericks over an older OS, you shouldn't have to do anything.
    If you erased the drive before installing Mavericks, then Adobe's servers don't know that you are installing the software on the same computer. Meaning, if you forgot to deactivate the software before erasing the drive, then as far as Adobe's servers know, you still have two computers with that serial number activated, and it won't allow a third.
    If you still have a full backup of your previous OS, restore it. Then deactivate the Adobe software. To save from having to overwrite your Mavericks install (mind you, this is all assuming you did an erase and install), create a separate partition on any drive to restore the previous OS and its apps to. Do the deactivation and remove the temporary partition. You should then be able to go back to the Mavericks drive and activate the software.
    If you did do an install of Mavericks over your previous OS and the Adobe software is still balking when it shouldn't, then you'll have to contact Adobe and straighten it out through them.

  • I have been using Elements 12 without a problem for 9 months.  Now when I try to open the program, I get an error message  "Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 quit unexpectedly" and it will not open at all.  What can I do to open the program?

    Thank you for responding.  Nothing actually worked!  After reading the posts online, I called Apple.  They indicated they have seen problems with some software after their upgrades.  The technician was able to fix the problem on my computer remotely, but I have no clue what he did!  But, it was definitely related to their recent upgrade to my computer.

  • Error installing trials of photoshop and illustrator CC

    When trying to install Photoshop and Illustrator trials I get the error message 'Error writing to temporary file location' the error code is (-70)
    I am running windows 8.1

    Pcolly2509 this is a different error than I have observed before.  Since it is discussing a failure to write to the temp file location then it would occur your current User account does not have sufficient permissions to write to this directory.  Please try creating a new administrator account and seeing if you face the same difficulty.  You can find details on how to create a new User account in steps 7 of Troubleshoot unexpected behavior | User account-specific | Adobe software | Windows 7, Vista - http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/troubleshoot-unexpected-behavior-user-account-2. html.  The process is going to be the same for Windows 8.1.

  • What is difference between adobe photoshop  and photoshop extended cs5

    what is difference between adobe photoshop  and photoshop extended cs5

    Hi,
    The biggest difference is the 3D feature set is only available in Ps Extended CS5. Exclusive to Extended CS5 also are timeline for video editing, Dicom format support, Stack mode blending, analysis measurement tools, and some 32-bit painting capabilities.
    Some things have changed for the Photoshop Extended CS6 version, mainly enabling more of the video editing features for both products.
    regards,

  • Photoshop and Illustrator updates fail using Adobe Application Manager, why and what can I do?

    In the Adobe Application Manager, it says there are updates for both Photoshop and Illustrator. When I click to update, they both downloaded and attempted to install and in the middle of this process, Application Manager shows that the updates fail. After this, upon restart of my Mac–running Lion–Illustrator shows that it's up to date in the Application Manager and Photoshop shows an update is available. Upon trying to re-update Photoshop again, the update fails again and again.
    I have updated before a few days ago with no problem, so I don't understand why the updates are failing and why after doing so, now Illustrator shows that it is up to date and Photoshop does not.
    Has anyone else had this problem and if so, does anyone know why and what I can do about it?
    Thank you.

    Hi Richei Creative,
    These would be my suggestions:
    Create a new user account with administrative rights, log out of your current account and into that one, launch Adobe Application Manager and attempt the Photoshop update again.
    Instructions if you need them  - http://support.apple.com/kb/PH11468
    If this fails, uninstall Photoshop (Applications > Utilities > Adobe Installers) and reinstall Photoshop then from Adobe Application Manager the attempt the Photoshop update again, also from the newly created user account.
    Hope these help,
    -Dave
