Frequently Asked Questions

If you got ArtRage Lite as a free download with your Wacom Intuos Draw tablet, Wacom has changed their registration process and no longer emails the serial out. You should be able to view your ArtRage serial by logging back into their website and looking in the ‘My Library’ section. If you’re having problems following the steps, see this Wacom registration guide.

If you can’t find it, contact Wacom support and they should be able to help you (unfortunately, we don’t have access to your account with Wacom). If you have used up your downloads, or need to switch from Windows to Mac OSX (or vice versa), just register your serial in our member area to download your software as needed.

We recommend using our ArtRage 4 demo until you get everything sorted.

If you’re seeing strange crashes in Windows 10 when you zoom, rotate, or interact with menus (or other random movements of your stylus or touch gestures) then the culprit is probably Press & Hold for Right Click. This is a tablet and touch input setting that can conflict with tablet drivers and software in strange ways.

  • Go to your Control Panel > Pen and Touch > Change touch input settings
  • Disable or enable ‘press and hold’ (whichever it currently is, change it)



This feature has also caused strange zooming or ‘right clicking’ behaviour with older Wacom drivers and previous versions of Windows.

If you are using ArtRage 3 Studio/Studio Pro and are seeing crashes, this might be due to an incompatible feature that you can disable: ArtRage memory crashes on Windows 10

If you are seeing severe lag (strokes take a very long time to appear after you make them) while trying to draw on the canvas in Mac OS 10.11 using ArtRage Lite or ArtRage 4, you probably need to update your software to version 4.5.9 (or later). Earlier versions are not compatible with El Capitan.

If you aren’t sure whether this is the issue, go to Help > About ArtRage and check the version number. If it is earlier then 4.5.9, download the updated version from the member area. If it is 4.5.9 or later, then please contact us as you have a different problem.

Note: ArtRage Studio & Studio Pro users will also experience problems if you have not updated to version 3.5.12, but this is a pre-existing compatibility issue that has existed since Mac OS 10.9.

If you get the error “An error occurred on attempting to create an object” when installing ArtRage on Mac OSX, you need to drag the ArtRage icon to the Applications folder

This will install ArtRage and allow you to open it.
