Frequently Asked Questions

This effect appears only on iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina. You can avoid this by accelerating your drawing speed.
The side switch works as a shortcut button. In most apps, you can select from a range of functions and assign one to the side switch: e.g., in Bamboo Paper, you can choose between eraser, undo, redo and full screen.
When the battery capacity of the Bamboo Stylus fineline reaches 10%, the LED starts to blink red and you will need to recharge. To do so, remove the cap at the top end of the stylus, insert the USB cable (included in the sales box) and connect it to a computer or USB charger. It takes about one hour to recharge to 80% capacity. To reach 100% capacity, you need about two hours of recharging.
The new material of the nib is very durable and long-lasting. You can draw over 100 km of lines with it on an iPad screen. Replacement nibs can be purchased at the Wacom eStore.
Please disable Multitasking Gestures on your iPad in Settings/General.

The LED lights give you the status of your stylus, informing you about pairing, connecting or a low battery. There are two colors, blue and red, and the lights can either be solid or blink. Here is an overview of what this means in detail:

  • Blinking blue light = Stylus is ready to connect with the app
  • Blue light solid for two seconds = Stylus is connected with the app
  • Blinking red light = Low battery
  • Red light solid = Battery is recharging
  • Blue light remains on = Stylus is connected with the app (Fineline 2)
As only supported apps have the ability to properly correct this gap, please make sure that you are using a supported app. If you use non-supported apps, you can minimize this effect by holding the stylus in a more vertical way.
