I use an old Aiptek graphic tablet Jul 21, 2004

But I think it is only useful for movements like you would normally do them with a pen, i.e. for freehand lines and to erase areas like using a rubber.

On my new computer I can simply plug in the USB connection and use the tablet simultaneously with the mouse.

Hi! AS Harry said, via USD connector using a puck or pen alternatively along with the mouse. I use it generally for technical designing ( Circuits etc., )

thanks to both of you... Jul 22, 2004

for sharing this information. I had read a publicity of them and it sounded as if I was the last person in the world not to be using one, and that apart from a cup of coffee they could make everything one can dream of... But I can probably save the money for something more urgent...

thanks again and happy translation!
