Fixes and changes have been made in the following areas:
The following is a list of known issues:
You have a 12" Cintiq and the SBP UI runs off the screen once you have rotated from landscape to portrait view.
Why: SBP desktop is currently created for use on devices with a minimum resolution of 1024 x 768. When changed to portrait view, the width is less than 1024, so the UI runs off the screen.
You have the SketchBook Mac retail version and Mac App Store version installed side-by-side and cannot launch the Mac retail version.
Solution: Re-enter the serial number when launching Mac retail version.
Canvas refresh is slow when using symmetry with steady stroke in enabled.
Solution: Turn off steady stroke.

Once that the tablet is connected and tracking properly, you need to set your mapping options.

If for any reason the stylus does not track properly, consult Wacom Product Support Online.
