Configuring Gesture Setup

You can change the default gesture input and trigger methods in Motion Preferences.
When gestures are enabled, you can use a modifier key (the Control key) or a button on
the pen to trigger gesturing.

Before you can use gestures, Handwriting Recognition must be enabled in Mac OS X Ink
Preferences. Ink Preferences can be accessed in Motion Gesture Preferences.


To use gestures, make sure that your Wacom tablet and its current drivers

are correctly installed. For more information, see your tablet’s documentation or website.

To set up Motion Gesture Preferences


In Motion, choose Motion > Preferences (or press Command-Comma).


Click Gestures.

you must enable Handwriting Recognition in Motion Preferences. If you cannot turn
gestures on at this point, or perform the following steps, click Open Ink Preferences and
follow the instructions in the section,

Gestures in the Air

. After you enable Handwriting

Recognition, complete the following steps.


For “Gestures are,” ensure that On is selected.

to the tip) on the pen.
