In today’s post, we are going to discuss How To Set Up Your Wacom Intuos Pro.
I’m going to take you step by step through the process of setting up & pairing your Wacom tablet!
In this article, we are only covering the M & L Intuos Pro, not the small.
I provided video directions for setting up the Intuos Pro on a Mac below. Sadly there were no Windows videos available on the Wacom Channel.
& I no longer own a functional windows device so I cannot screen record.
I also provided text instructions below the video just in case you prefer reading, or don’t have the option of watching a video.
Find the USB cord for your tablet. It should look something like this.
Plug the USB end to your computer, & the USB mini end into your tablet.
The setup wizard should open automatically. If it doesn’t open up automatically, open your web browser & go to www.wacom.com/start.
Select the “view now “ button next to the text “Getting Started w/ Intuos Pro”.
Follow the instructions provided by Wacom.
Download the driver for your computer from this page. The link from the “Getting Started w/ Intuos Pro” page will always have the most up to date driver.
A driver is necessary to use your tablet because it allows your computer to recognize your tablet. It also allows you to customize the settings for your tablet, & Pen.
Your driver will be different depending on whether you own a Mac or a PC
After you download the corresponding driver for your computer install the software.
Now you’re going to restart your computer. If this is the first time install, the driver will walk you through the setup guide.
Once the restart is finished you should see the setup wizard window appear. It will look something like this.
If the setup wizard didn’t appear you can find it by searching your computer for the Wacom desktop center.
While you are in the Wacom Desktop center you can also check for updates.
Check for a red number next to updates. If there is no red number visible than there are no updates available.
Once you’re in the Wacom Desktop Center, click Intuos Pro under devices. Then click ‘Run Setup Wizard”
Once the setup wizard opens
Follow the on-screen instructions provided to set up your tablet.
Your next step is to Pair the Bluetooth
I provided a video as well as text directions for pairing Bluetooth.
Before pairing your device make sure your tablet is turned on. You can do this by clicking the power button on the side of the tablet.
Hold the power button until you see the blue light by the WACOM logo go on.
Then press & hold the touch ring toggle button until the blue light(the same one from the photo above) blinks rapidly.
On your computer or laptop open your Bluetooth settings/preferences. Once the Bluetooth settings/preferences are opened find BT Intuos PRO & click pair.
Your Wacom Intuos should say connected.
From now on you can use Bluetooth or USB with your Intuos pro, as long as the driver is not uninstalled.
