Looking For Help
If there is anyone out there who can help me I would truly appreciate it. I am using my Bamboo Tablet for the first time. Each time I begin to make a stroke this loop appears around the cursor and it brings up the Image Help menu. I have tried to modify how I press the pencil to the tablet-anything that I could be doing, but have come up wanting. Is there anyone that can tell me how to disable that function so I can begin to draw?

Is there any way to disable it other than to double-click? Ironically, I just figured it out to do that....

If by loop, I think it might be the paint cursor, you can make the brush size smaller if you want just line drawing. If you can attach a screenshot of what it looks like that might help too.

To change the brush size:
http://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-using-varia...brush.html

Just adjust the scale slider, if you need a harder/softer brush edge, click & browse the box next to "brush" under Toolbox options.

Hope this helps

That loop near the cursor is part of gimps UI to my knowledge, its like when your erasing but smaller.

There is always something new with Graphics tablets (and Windows or Mac). I have an ancient Wacom Volito2 but I do use linux.

A loop? perhaps this is the brush outline? It can be changed in Edit -> Preferences -> Image Windows. Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/BzVybiu.jpg

Is this the actual drop-down Help menu, same as using alt-h keys? In which case look at the Wacom configuration application for some weird keybinding.
or is it a little pop up menu like this screenshot. http://i.imgur.com/0kECCDd.jpg
This is a right-click context menu and possibly your wacom stylus keys are a bit sensitive, again have a look at the wacom utility settings.

Other than that, maybe a bit more info, Operating system, maybe a screenshot of the 'loop around the cursor'
