Gestures in the Air

You can use gestures by swiping just above the tablet, without the tip of the pen touching
the tablet. Turn this feature on by selecting the “Allow gestures in the air” checkbox.


To use gestures in the air, you must set a pen button as the gesture trigger

input method, as well as set pen button 1 to Ignored in the Tool Buttons tab of the Wacom
Tablet application. For more information, see
