Bad News: Photoshop cannot sense pressure changes from a Thinkpad X41 tablet

One of the reasons I got a tablet is so that I could use art programs more efficiently. From my perspective, a Tablet PC is a smarter alternative to the Wacom Cintiq.

I just recieved an email response from Adobe stating that "Windows Tablet PC Edition" is not one of the system requirements, so I'm basically on my own when it comes to supporting this feature.

It's not just that I can't modify brush attributes by pressure or pen tilt, but also there is appreciable mouse-lag. This affects photoshop and hand-writing recognition.

It's time to sell the tablet I'm afraid.
