Pen hand tool doesn't work anymore

Hi! I hope this is the right place to ask about it!
I have purchased a couple of days ago the version 4 Plus, migrating from versions 0.5 and 3 free.
In those previous versions, when I click on the third button I can use the hand tool as long I hold the button.
It was an abused function for me.
But now it doesn't work anymore, I click he button and nothing happens.
I thought that was because I'm using a new graphics tablet but I tested it in 0.5 and 3 and it works fine!
What happened? How can I get back that function?

Thanks and please forgive my english!

First can you check if the option Use 3rd mouse button is enabled in your Artweaver preferences.

If the option is set I need some more details
  • Is this really working in Artweaver 3? As far as I remember there are no changes in the tablet support between version 3 and 4
  • Which tablet are you using and is the latest driver from the manufacturer installed?
  • How is the third button configured on the tablet. Is it mapped to a button on the pen or a button on the tablet?

Yes, the option is activated.
I tested again and in fact in the version 3 it don't work. But in 0.5 it work fine.
The tablet is a Trust Slimline Widescreen (this one http://www.trust.com/products/product.aspx?artnr=16529)
Tbe buttons are configured as: Pen tip-left click, second button-right click and third button-Scroll
There are not other options on it.
The drivers are the latest, downloaded from the manufacturer website.

It looks like that Artweaver is not processing the middle mouse click. I will check this and try to fix it with the next Artweaver update.

Artweaver is not respecting the mouse button mapped to a pen button which leads to this problem. This issue will be fixed with the next update.
