How can I use a Wacom tablet with Live?
When I alter a parameter the mouse pointer control acts jittery and 'jumps away' fast into the direction I'm dragging.

In order to prevent the awkward mouse pointer behaviour when using a Wacom tablet you can add the folowing line to your options.txt file:
This only works with Live 8.0.2 and later.
How to use Options.txt
Create a text file called "Options.txt" in the same folder where Live's Preferences.cfg file is located. Here's where to find the preferences folder (Live 6.0.9 or higher):
- Mac OS X: /User/Library/Preferences/Ableton
- Windows (Live 4 and later versions): C:/Documents and Settings/yourusername/Application Data/Ableton/Live/Preferences
- Windows Vista/Win7: c:/users/username/appdata/roaming/ableton/live/preferences/
Note that on some Windows systems the application data folder is hidden by default. Here is what you have to do to make it visible:

Hi...i had the same Problem. TEXT EDIT does NOT create a .txt file!!!
I used OpenOffice (you can also any other Office Programm) saved the Options.txt as .txt (not formated) and....it works!!!

to create a plain text document within TextEdit, open a new document and choose from the menu: Format > Make Plain Text. (Cmd+Shift+T also gets it done)
this action will also convert any text file to plain text, and can be performed on a rich text format file (.rtf and the like) - losing any formatting information (font, size, attachments etc.), leaving you with the desired plain text.
this will allow you to save a .txt file.1 year ago | 0 comments
