ADJUSTING THE DISPLAY INCLINE
You can adjust the Cintiq’s height and incline to best meet your needs throughout the day.
To change the display incline or viewing angle, face the front of the Cintiq and grasp it on the left and right
side at approximately the same height as the display stand adjustment levers. Use your fingertips to gently
pull the incline adjustment levers toward the Cintiq. This will release a clutch mechanism.
Tilt the display to adjust the incline setting.
� To lower Cintiq, pull the left incline adjustment lever toward Cintiq and gently lower Cintiq to the desired
incline angle. Release the lever to lock the stand in place.
�To raise Cintiq, pull the right incline adjustment lever toward Cintiq and gently raise Cintiq to the desired
incline angle. Release the lever to lock the stand in place.
Note: The incline adjustment levers exhibit some natural play before the clutch mechanism engages.
When adjusting incline, set the display stand to an incline slightly higher than you plan to work with,
then lower the display to the desired position.
Next: Familiarize yourself with the Cintiq. See getting to know your Cintiq.
ADJUSTING ROTATION
To adjust rotation, grasp Cintiq by the main body and rotate the Cintiq to the desired position. It will move
on the bearing hub.
Cintiq can be rotated on the display stand when the incline is less than or equal to 25 degrees. You can
only rotate the Cintiq 180 degrees in either direction.
If you do not plan to rotate the Cintiq, use the rotation lock screws and fasten the display to the stand in a
horizontal position. See Optional display configurations.
Before moving Cintiq, first adjust the stand to its full upright position. This will reduce the spring
tension so the stand will not accidentally release and snap shut. If the Cintiq is in landscape
orientation, use one hand to grasp the bottom of the display and with your other hand grasp the
back of the stand. Be sure to lift on both the display and the stand so the stand will not separate
from the display when moving Cintiq.
If Cintiq is in portrait orientation or has been locked to the stand with the rotation lock screws, the
stand will not separate from the Cintiq, and it can be lifted safely by grasping the display with
both hands. See Optional display configurations.

REMOVING CINTIQ FROM THE DISPLAY STAND
The Cintiq has been specifically designed for use when mounted on the Cintiq display stand. However,
there may be times when it will be necessary to remove the Cintiq from the stand. For example, you may
want to use the Cintiq on a suitable VESA mounting arm.
See Using an alternate mount or stand.
To remove Cintiq from the display stand:
� If the rotation lock screws are attached, remove them from the back of Cintiq.
� Position the Cintiq to landscape orientation before removing it from the display stand. The stand will not
release unless Cintiq is in landscape orientation.
� Next, raise the stand incline to the highest position. See Adjusting the display incline.
� Firmly grasp the Cintiq on both the left and right sides, and lift out of the display stand.
Note: When packing Cintiq for transport, first adjust the stand to its lowest position and place the foam
packing blocks under the incline adjustment levers before removing Cintiq from the stand. The foam
blocks will keep the stand from snapping shut while in its packaging. Always pack Cintiq and its
stand in their original containers and protective cushions. Never pack Cintiq while it is mounted on
the stand. Doing so may damage the Cintiq or stand during transport.
Important: When removing Cintiq from the display
stand, always lift in a direction parallel to the front of
the stand. You may also need to slightly rotate Cintiq
so the stand will release.13

are powered on. This can damage the display or video card.
1. Turn off your computer.
2. Determine if your computer has a digital (DVI) or analog (VGA) port. If your computer has only one video
port, unplug your previous monitor or add a second video card. For best results, connect Cintiq to a
DVI-D or DVI-I card.
3. Follow the below instructions for your video port. Make sure to tighten any connector thumbscrews.
See – A – in the connection diagram.
4. Plug the USB connector into an available USB port on your computer or USB hub attached to your
computer. See – B – in the connection diagram.
5. Connect the power adapter to Cintiq. See – C – in the connection diagram.
6. Connect the adapter power cable and plug into an AC outlet. See – D – in the connection diagram.
7. Turn on the Cintiq. The power LED will glow orange.

8. Turn on your computer. The Cintiq will install as a default monitor.
9. As necessary, configure the display control panel settings for the proper size and color resolution.
For best results, set Cintiq to the maximum (native) resolution of 1920×1080. See the Important Product
Information guide located on the Installation CD for details about resolution sizes that can be used with
Cintiq. The display size and color resolution may be constrained by the capabilities of your video card.
To fine-tune, see The multi-touch experience.
Windows: If you are using Cintiq as a secondary display, you may first need to enable Cintiq in your
display properties control panel.
After the LCD monitor portion of the installation is working to your satisfaction, move on to Step 2:
Software installation.
Notes:
Each LCD panel is produced under very stringent quality standards. Production techniques cannot
guarantee an absolutely perfect display. Wacom does not allow any pixel to be always white. A small
number of subpixels are allowed to show a wrong color for some parts of the color spectrum. See
the Important Product Information guide for more information.
If an image has fine striping (such as screen stripes), it may appear to flicker or display a moiré
pattern.
Do not apply excessive pressure on the display screen surface, it may cause the appearance of a
moiré or pooling pattern. If this occurs, use less pressure on the display screen when working with
the pen.
When a still image is displayed for a long period of time, an after-image may remain for a short time.
To prevent this, use a screen saver or other power management feature.
To extend the life of the backlight, set your computer’s power management to turn off the display
when not in use for extended periods of time.
Your eyes may feel more comfortable if you reduce the display screen brightness when working with
Cintiq for extended periods of time. This will also extend the life of the backlight and reduce the heat
felt on the display screen surface.
Some models may include a color profile on the Installation CD. To activate for use with Cintiq, first
identify Cintiq as a pen display in the system display settings control panel. Then select the Cintiq
profile in the color management control panel. For details, see the color management information in
your operating system and application documentation.
For troubleshooting tips, see Troubleshooting.17

STEP 2: SOFTWARE INSTALLATION
Important: You MUST install the Wacom driver software for correct pen-on-screen functionality.
Save your work and close all open applications. Temporarily disable any virus protection programs.
1. Insert the Installation CD into your computer’s CD-ROM drive. If the software installer menu does not
display, double-click on the INSTALL icon located on the CD. (When available, you can also download
and install the latest software driver from the Wacom web site for your region.)
2. Click INSTALL TABLET and follow the prompts to install the driver software.
3. Reactivate your virus protection program.
4. After completing the software installation, make sure you can use your pen on the Cintiq display screen
to move the screen cursor.
When you place the pen tip on the display screen, the screen cursor should immediately jump to a
corresponding position approximately beneath the pen tip. Lift the pen tip and place it on the display
screen surface in a different location. The screen cursor should again jump to the new position. This is
known as absolute positioning, and enables you to position the screen cursor without having to drag
your pen across the display screen surface.
5. Review the Important Product Information guide located on the Installation CD for Caution and Warning
statements. If you have trouble installing Cintiq, see Troubleshooting.
6. Next, precisely align the screen cursor with the pen tip position. See Calibrating the Cintiq.
Notes:
User-specific preferences are supported. After logging on, each user can customize their personal
settings in the Wacom Tablet control panel. Switching to another user (either by logging on or fast
user switching methods) will load the settings for that user.
If the Cintiq does not respond properly or you lose cursor control, the preferences may be corrupted.
See Managing preferences to delete the current preference settings and return the Cintiq to its
factory default condition.
Driver installation automatically activates the pen input functions available within Windows 8 and
Windows 7. See pen and digital ink capabilities in Windows.
To download a new software driver (when available) from the Internet, see Obtaining software
updates.
To uninstall the software driver, see uninstalling Cintiq.18

PEN FEATURES
Important:
� Use only the pen that came with your product, or a Wacom accessory pen specified for use with
Cintiq. Other pens may not function properly. Also, the Cintiq pen tip is specifically designed for use
with the Cintiq. The tips on other pens could damage the Cintiq display screen.
� When not in use, place the pen in the pen stand or lay it flat on your desk. To maintain the sensitivity
of your pen, do not store it in a container where it will rest on the tip or eraser.
Improper storage may damage pen tip pressure sensor(s).
Eraser: When brought within proximity of the screen, the tablet
portion of the display reports the pen location. Pressure
information is reported as you press down on the eraser. By
default, the function is set to ERASE.
Side switch: Be sure the customizable side switch is in a convenient
location where you can toggle it with your thumb or forefinger but not
accidentally press it while using the pen.
You can use the switch whenever the pen tip is within proximity of the
display screen. You do not need to touch the pen tip to the display
surface.
Toggle the switch in either direction to activate the button functions.
By default, the upper switch is set to DOUBLE CLICK and the lower
switch is set to RIGHT CLICK.
Pen tip (replaceable nib): The pen activates as soon as it is brought
within proximity of the screen. This allows you to position the screen
cursor without touching the pen tip to the display screen.
When pressure is applied to the pen tip, the pen simulates a primary
mouse button click. Tip click pressure can be adjusted in the
Wacom Tablet control panel.
Tips:
� The pen enters proximity when the tip or eraser is brought
within 5 mm (0.2 inch) of the screen.
� To resume operations after the Cintiq has entered auto
sleep mode, bring the pen tip within proximity or touch the
pen tip on the screen. 22

SETTING UP YOUR WORK AREA
To minimize fatigue, organize your work area to create a comfortable environment. Position Cintiq, the pen,
and your keyboard for easy access without unnecessary reaching. The Cintiq and any other displays
should be positioned so you can view them comfortably with a minimum of eyestrain.
� If you have not already done so, be sure to configure Cintiq for your preferred handedness.
� When using Cintiq as a display, align the top of the Cintiq in line with the level of your eyes.
� If working with a keyboard, consider locating the keyboard slightly below the desk surface in an
adjustable keyboard tray.
� Maintain a good posture at all times.
Adjust Cintiq to a position that
best meets your creative needs.23

� Periodically shift your gaze from your computer and focus on other objects within the room. This will
help to relax your eyes.
� Use a gentle grip when working with the pen. Take short breaks between tasks to stretch and relax your
muscles.
� Alternate tasks throughout the day. Minimize awkward postures and repetitive movements.
� Change your position if you feel any discomfort.
� Alternate between different modes of use. For example, every few hours adjust the Cintiq display stand
to a different working position.
� Study the rest of this chapter to learn more about working with Cintiq.
� Learn about the basics of customizing Cintiq for the way you like to work.
Tips:
� Do not pull the cabling from their computer connections by accidentally moving the Cintiq too far
from the computer.
� If the rotation lock screws are attached to the back of Cintiq, they must be removed before Cintiq
can be rotated.
� Before rotating the Cintiq, be sure the cables are freely rotating behind the unit.
� Cintiq can also be mounted to articulated arms or other third-party stands meeting the VESA MIS-D
100/100 (4 screw) specification for monitor stands. See Using an alternate mount or stand for
details.

CONFIGURING CINTIQ FOR HANDEDNESS
During the installation process, you were prompted to choose a default configuration for Cintiq based on
whether you are right- or left-handed. The configuration you chose was used to determine the default
settings for the ExpressKeys and Touch Strips.
However, you can use the Wacom Tablet control panel to easily reconfigure Cintiq for left- or right-handed
users at any time. The ExpressKey and Touch Strip settings are automatically reconfigured when you
change the handedness setting.
USING THE GRIP PEN
The cordless, battery-free pen senses the amount of pressure and tilt you apply to the tip. There are four
basic techniques for using the pen: pointing, clicking, double-clicking, and dragging. If you are unfamiliar
with using the pen, see the following pages.
Holding the pen
Positioning
Clicking
Dragging
Using the side switch
Working with pressure sensitivity
Drawing with tilt
Erasing
To reconfigure for left- or right-handed users:
1. Launch the Wacom Tablet control panel by pressing the center
hardware control button. Click OPTIONS….
2. Choose the appropriate setting for your preferred handedness.
3. Click OK. The existing ExpressKey and Touch Strip settings are
swapped (or flipped) between left and right.
Notes:
The hardware control buttons are not affected when you
change the handedness setting.
Likewise, changing the handedness setting does not affect the
ExpressKeys used to control the LCD settings when in LCD
settings (OSD) mode.
This procedure does not affect the default orientation. At the
system log on and user switching screens, the Cintiq uses the
default configuration you chose during the install process. To
change the default configuration, you must re-install the
Wacom driver.25

HOLDING THE PEN
Hold the pen like you would a normal pen or pencil. Adjust your grip so that the side switch is in a
convenient location where you can toggle it with your thumb or forefinger. Be careful not to accidentally
press the switch while drawing or positioning with the pen. Tilt the pen in any way that feels most
comfortable. As you work with Cintiq you can rest your hand lightly on the display screen.
Place the pen stand within easy reach. When not in use, place the pen in the pen stand or lay it flat on your
desk. The stand allows for vertical or horizontal placement of the pen.
If you are working in a multi-user
environment or otherwise want to
personalize your pen, unscrew the tip
cone and replace the colored ring with
one of another color (included).
You can customize the pen settings at
any time.
Nib removal tool
Replacement nibs
� 6 standard nibs
� 3 hard felt nibs
�1 stroke nib
Unscrew the base of the pen stand to access a nib removal tool
and assorted replacement nibs.
Important: To maintain the sensitivity of your pen,
do not store it in a container where it will rest on
the tip or eraser. Improper storage may damage
the pen tip pressure sensor(s).26

POSITIONING
CLICKING
To position the screen cursor, move the pen slightly above
the Cintiq display screen without touching the screen
surface. Press the pen tip on the display screen to make a
selection.
Note: Calibrating the Cintiq ensures correct alignment of
the screen cursor with the pen tip. If the screen
cursor does not jump to a position near the pen tip
when you place the pen on the display screen, the
software driver may not be installed or is not loading.
Install the driver software if necessary. Otherwise,
see Troubleshooting.
Tap the display screen once with the pen tip, or touch the pen to
the display screen with enough pressure to register a click.
Tip: Configure Windows to select when hovering the pen over
an icon and to launch the icon with a single click. To turn
on this feature, first open a folder.
From the ORGANIZE pull-down menu choose FOLDER AND
SEARCH OPTIONS. From the GENERAL tab select SINGLE-
CLICK TO OPEN AN ITEM (POINT TO SELECT).
Press the upper side switch
(when set to DOUBLE CLICK),
or quickly tap the display
screen twice in the same
place with the pen tip.
Double-clicking is easier
when using the pen
perpendicular to the screen.27

DRAGGING
USING THE SIDE SWITCH
The pen comes equipped with a side switch. This switch has two customizable functions that can be
selected by rocking the switch in either direction. You can use the side switch whenever the pen tip is
within proximity (5 mm (0.2 inch)) of the display screen surface. You do not need to touch the pen tip to the
display surface in order to use the switch. By default, the upper switch is set to DOUBLE CLICK, and the
lower switch is set to RIGHT CLICK. You can customize or disable the switch functions using the Wacom
Tablet control panel.
WORKING WITH PRESSURE SENSITIVITY
The pen responds to the nuance and inflection of your hand movements, enabling you to create natural-
looking pen and brush strokes within applications that support this feature.
To draw, ink, or write with pressure sensitivity, move the pen along the display screen surface while
applying various amounts of pressure downward on the tip of the pen. Press hard for thick lines or dense
color. Press gently for thin lines or softer color. Some applications require that you first select a pressure-
sensitive tool from the application tool palette.
To adjust tip feel, see Adjusting tip feel and double-click.
Visit the Wacom web site to learn about applications that support pressure. See Product information.
Select an object, then slide the pen tip across the display
screen to move the object.28

DRAWING WITH TILT
The Cintiq recognizes when you tilt the pen from vertical to incline positions. Tilt can be used to control line
shape and thickness in supporting applications.
Visit the Wacom web site to learn about applications that support tilt. See Product information.
ERASING
In supporting applications the pen eraser works
like the eraser on a pencil. In text applications, use
the eraser to select text and then lift the eraser
from the screen to delete the text.
Visit the Wacom web site to learn about
applications that support the eraser. See Product
information. If the eraser is not supported in an
application, you can still use the eraser for
positioning, drawing, or annotation.29

THE MULTI-TOUCH EXPERIENCE
Your Cintiq22HD provides interactive multi-touch functions, which enable you to interact with a computer
using only your fingertips on the pen display screen surface.
You can use touch on the pen display as you would on any other Mac or Windows device, such as phones,
trackpads, and notebooks. First learn the basic actions to navigate and perform typical mouse operations.
Then learn how to scroll, zoom, and rotate.
Touch is activated whenever it is enabled and you touch the display screen surface.
� When using touch, you can generally position your fingers as far apart as is comfortable.
However, placing your fingers too closely together may be interpreted by the pen display as input from
a single finger, or it may confuse which finger initiated or performed an action or gesture. Your fingers
must remain within the active area of the screen surface.
� Experiment with touch to see what works best for you. Take care to prevent accidental touches on the
display screen when making gestures. For example, if your small finger touches the display screen
surface when zooming or scrolling, you may trigger an unanticipated right-click.
Note: For product models that support both pen and multi-touch, you can simultaneously work with the
pen and touch in supporting applications. For example, you might use touch to turn a 3D object
while using the pen to sculpt a surface texture. The pen has priority over touch whenever the pen tip
is within proximity of the pen display screen. Lift the pen and your hand away from the display
screen surface to enable touch.
