Long story short, yesterday I upgraded to Mojave and the Wacom pen didn’t work at all. Went hunting on Wacom’s site and installed the latest driver. Got a window asking me to let Wacom control my computer and I denied access due to the creepiness of what this suggests (plus lack of information about it - and with no link available to learn more). Wacom's pen still didn’t work. Went back to the website and found pertinent instructions, which included the following:

On the list “allow the apps below to control your computer”, make sure any Wacom component listed has a check mark. While you are here, ensure any known applications listed have a check as well. (For example, Photoshop will need to be selected to work correctly with the tablet, visit Adobe support guide for more information on adding this program if missing. 

So I did what it said in the Security and Permissions area - what other choice did I have, really? - and now the pen works and all the controls to changing tip feel, etc. are accessible also.

Given this, I wonder if the 2011 Office products that some of you find buggy must have similar “control” in order to work properly? Supposing this might be the case. . .

Good to know that you kept saying “no” and those troublesome messages finally disappeared. I probably will do the same if they come up for me, as I, like you, seldom want to take a deep dive into the fine print to learn what such things are all about.

I’m taking a deep breath and getting ready to make the change. My Wacom pen and Photoshop just became buggy again and I suspect the OS has something to do with it. One thing I know for sure is that as soon as I call Wacom I’ll be asked if I have the latest OS and if I say no they won’t help me. So I know what I have to do first. . .
