will this graphics tablet work with my windows 8 laptop as well as my MacBook running OS X 10.6.8 snow leopard? 21 Feb 2014
I din't spent much time configuring the device, I just plugged it in. I have probably driver issues under Windows 8.1 64-bit - desktop apps do not register stylus pressure - just touch on/off, however metro apps like "fresh paint" work ok. It's either Windows 8 have different API for pressure which is not recognized by Photoshop, or it's the Wacom drivers which do not emulate old pressure API properly. I don't have OS X (10.9.1) Photoshop version, but Autodesk's SketchBookExpress seems to work correctly, pressure is recognized. As for a mouse replacement - this pad does everything you will expect - pointing, left and right click, finger gestures for page scroll, pinch for zoom, etc. However it's not the replacement for Apple Trackpad, since Trackpad gestures (e.g. three finger side swipe for screen switching) are not working.
I am looking at this as a replacement for a Bamboo One - is the pen compatible? I am not expecting pressure etc, just enough to use as a mouse. 29 Jan 2015
The pen from the bamboo one does not work on the bamboo pad. It comes with its own pen that is not as sensitive as the stylus on the one but you can also use your fingers and use it as a trackpad like fitted to a laptop. If you only use the functionality as a mouse no problem but for drawing and photo editing I personally prefer the higher range models.
Yep. Works a treat, although in Windows 8/8.1 there aren't any drivers for the tilt/pressure sensitivity (that I know of)
Does this have the functions of a Mac trackpad when used on Mac? Like the four-finger to bring up expose etc? 11 days ago
It doesn't have the same gestures as it does on mac track pad you can use it like an ordinary mouse without the pen though similarly to that of the old style mac track pad
How do you 'right click' with this? I'm disabled so can't do multi-touch gestures- only one finger at a time. Thanks :-) 2 Feb 2015
The big button at the bottom is actually 2 buttons so you just click the right side of the button for right click
Any difference with the way the click is managed on the Apple magic trackpad/laptops? Can you do a virtual left or right click directly on the pad? 28 Jul 2014
Yes, i think u can either tap near the bottom or also the black line on it has a left & right nice tactile, clicky button thing. :/ not sure about the other question, i guess honestly it depends on the laptop. :) hope this helps
