    Wacom right click not working with MC 8.8.4

    I'm using an iMac 2017 with latest download of MC 8.8.4 and my Wacom Bamboo MTE-450A tablet and pen. The pen's right click works in other apps and finder, but not with Avid MC.

    In Avid MC I need to hold down control to get access to right click menus and functions.

    Searching through these forums I can see there's been various problems with Wacom usability over the last few years, although I've never had problems with this tablet over a few different versions of MC and OSX over the last 5 years.

    I've tried the last couple of versions of Wacom drivers, but no luck.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks Ralph - I've found a solution and thought I'd share it here for anyone experiencing a similar issue.

    In the Wacom table settings (in system preferences) - instead of choosing 'right click' as the pen button function, I've chosen 'modifier' and then from the pop up box I've selected 'control' from the 'keys' list and 'left' from the 'clicks' list.

    The right-click via pen button is now functioning as usual across all apps.

    Cheers, Patrick

    Good trick!

    But my Wacom works with the right-click setting - it's a Intuos Pen & Touch, might use a different driver.
