Yes, many professionals use both a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet and a Cintiq creative pen display. Depending on the type of work they’re doing they’ll use one or the other. Even if a customer uses a Cintiq for their primary work they may choose to use an Intuos Pro when traveling.

Yes, some of the Intuos 5 and Pro pens are compatible. The Grip Pen(KP501E2), Classic Pen(KP300E2), Art Pen(KP701E2), Airbrush (KP400E2), and Pro Pen(KP503E) are compatible with the new Wacom Intuos Pro tablets. However, the new Pens like Pro Pen 2, Finetip Pen and Ballpoint Pen require new replacement pen nibs. The Inking Pen is not compatible.

The lights on the tablet will change depending on whether you are operating the device as a pen tablet or paper sketching. For pen tablet, the four white LEDs around the touch ring indicate the different modes of the touch ring.

For paper sketching, the “+” LED indicates new when the LED is green and page has content when the LED is blue.

The orange LED close to USB plug indicates battery status, it will turn blue to indicate the Bluetooth status.

To turn off touch, use the slider switch next to the power button.


We recommend that you charge your Intuos Pro tablet when you first receive it if you plan to connect to your computer using a Bluetooth connection. To charge, simply connect it to a working computer using the USB cable inside your box.

Charging times can vary. A quick charge for the Wacom Intuos Pro is 2.5 hours (typical). A full normal charge for the Intuos Pro is 5 hours (typical).

The battery lasts 10 hours for continuous usage with pen or multi-touch. If no interaction is happening, Intuos Pro will use a power saving mode to increase battery time.

You cannot use the Pro Pen 2, which is included with your Wacom Intuos Pro tablet on previous generation products.

You can import old settings using the settings import tool. This tool can be accessed in the Setup Wizard during driver installation.

If you skipped that step during setup, you can re-run the setup wizard from the Wacom Desktop Center.

Install the Wacom Tablet driver and disconnect the USB cable. Switch on Wacom Intuos Pro. Open the Bluetooth Preferences Pane or Bluetooth Settings window on your computer. Press the center button for 6 seconds until the blue LED blinks rapidly. Wacom Intuos Pro will show up as "BT IntuosPro M" or "BT IntuosPro L" in the Macintosh Bluetooth Preferences pane or Windows Bluetooth Settings. Select “Pair” to complete the pairing. IMPORTANT: on Windows, do not connect to “LE IntuosPro M/L” – that connection is reserved for mobile devices and does not support pen tablet use.
