  • Wacom tablet

    This is a question for those that do their own designs. Do any of you use a Wacom tablet when using your design software. ?
    I looking for setup suggestions.

    I have given it thought in the past, especially when I had access to them when I was substitute teaching.
    Never pulled the trigger and since I spend so much time in front of computer, it may retirement before I try.

      Sorry I never used the Wacom. When I was force to replace my computer (due to failed updates), I bought a touch screen & bamboo pen, which I now used for designing.

        I have one. If you can draw/sketch, it can be of great benefit. It does have some glitchy aspects, but so does every piece of hardware and software I've tried. Some of the glitches I resolved using google suggestions. I've had mine for 2-3 years. It's still not intuitive to me.

          Thanks Linda, I think it really takes a deliberate focus to get comfortable with it. Every time I try using mine I got frustrated and reverted back to my mouse. What software are you using it with?

            I have tried really hard with Inkscape and Paint. Dabbled in a few others. Mostly I find it to be a glorified mouse that I have to be overly carefuly to keep my hand off of the surface while using. True graphite and paper artists don't allow their hand to brush the paper because the graphite would smear. It's the same for the the Wacom tablet and pencil...it senses my hand too much if I don't maintain perfect "posture", and then everything else goes awry.

              I have a Wacom tablet for several years, I too find it frustrating to use. I have never been able to get comfortable with the eye hand coordination that a tablet requires. I find the mouse far more convenient. I know that there those swear by it, I swear at it.
