Does anyone use a Wacom graphics tablet?

 

I use it instead of a mouse for everything apart from one thing.

 

Quick pick

 

The trouble is a can't keep my hand (the pen) perfectly still, long enough.

 

Does anyone have a solution?

I feel your pain. 

 

I have the timeout on the minimum and have a mouse on my left hand. Just for quickpick.

Next to this I changed the "shift" button of my SpacePilot Pro to "left mouse button".

thanks Joris

 

Adjusting timeout is good.

 

I've just remembered the tablet is finger touch sensitive too so I can hold the pen and touch with two spare fingers to call up the Quick Pick then continue with the pen

 

pinching and spreading with my fingers zooms too

It would be an interesting test to see if you could setup an inexpensive tablet like the Surface (not Pro) as an "original" tablet- like in the days of early 90's. Here you could have icons on the screen instead of the laminated paper template.
