Wacom Intuos Pen Settings

Hi! I've used a Wacom tablet for years but I just got a new one and I can't seem to figure out how to set it up for editing. 

Specifically, here's the challenges I faced:

When cloning in PS, I would hold the ALT key and touch the pen to the tablet (to set the clone area) but it would never accept the selection. I'd have to go to my mouse, ALT + click, then I could clone with the pen.

When trying to use sliders (like brush size) the pen won't move the slider. 

I've tried adjusting the different options in the tablet properties but I'm struggling to figure it out. Is there a list of "generally, set up your pen with these settings" type of post in here?

thanks.

@Damien Symonds - Can you help Gretchen out with this one? I've never used a Wacom Tablet.

Thank you @Brian. I actually did get it figured out finally after much digging on the internet. The answer was to un-check "Use Windows Ink" in the settings box but I had to turn it off for all the functions (tablet, pen, and general).

SO glad I got it figured out! Thanks.

Could you post a screenshot of what you changed in this thread? It might help someone else out.

sure! the "use Windows Ink" box needs to be unchecked, but you need to click each tab and uncheck it on each tab.
