I have been using a Wacom Intuos 3 graphics tablet with NX2 for eighteen months or so and have really loved working with it. However recently I have noticed that when I use the stylus it is sometimes misaligned with the image. If for instance I draw a circle with the lasso tool, the selected area will appear on the image a centimetre or so higher than where the cursor appeared to be putting it. This does not always happen - sometimes it is absolutley fine. I have not been able so far to establish a pattern to this behaviour. Often within a session the misalignment will suddenly appear. There does not then seem to be anyway to 'reset' it. The misalignment will be there with whatever tool I use.

I suspect it is somehow triggered by zooming an image before working on it.

I have downloaded the most recent drivers for the tablet. If I switch to the mouse (provided by Wacom with the tablet) there is no misalignment.

I wondered whether anyone else had experienced ths problem.

The attached screen dump illustrates the problem. A selection was drawn around the subject's head starting along the line of the black collar. As can be seen it actualy appears above and to the right of the head.
