Beats the heck out of the mouse! Didn't take a lot of "getting used to" unless you try to use that third-dimension (pen pressure) to vary brush size and/or other features. I never quite mastered that particular feature, so I just leave the boxes unchecked (ie., pen pressure doesn't vary anything.) Each Photoshop tool that *can* apply meaning to the pen pressure makes the extra meaning optional, via check-boxes. On a PC (maybe on a Mac, too) you can operate using both the Pen and the mouse at the same time. I still use the mouse for navigating menus and non- graphical functions. The pen takes priority over the mouse any time the pen-tip is on the pad's working surface. rafe b. - Please: Stay on topic. Trim quoted messages. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
