Please note: This FAQ section is designed for system integrators or system administrators that are deploying Wacom tablets across their enterprise.
Create default settings for one or more users
Individual users can configure their own preferred settings for their DTU using the Wacom Tablet Preference File Utility.
This allows settings to be backed up and restored - further details are available in the Preference Utility Guide
Subject to the signing of an NDA system administrators can set up configuration files which can be applied to one or all users.
For all users - WacomTabletDefaults.xml is placed in C:\Windows\System32
For specific users - WacomTabletUserDefaults.xml is placed in %APPDATA%\wtablet (e.g. C:\Users\jsmith\AppData\Roaming\WTablet).
Both these configuration files can be populated with the same set of XML values to determine how the DTU behaves.
If either type of default file is used, once the user makes changes to preferences through the tablet control panel then those changes will override the default values.
When the user clears preferences through the tablet preference utility the driver re-reads these defaults files and reapplies the default values specified in them.
