    Also, can you also plug a mouse in at the same time, I like to play games from time to time. So can I be working with the tablet and then afterwards load up a game and move straight over to the mouse?

    I have just done a quick serach and didn't realise that they were so cheap, otherwise I would have looked into this sooner.

    In addition to Chad's questions.

    Can you use any mouse or does it have to be theirs?

    I just bought a new Logitech 5 button optical. I guess I could use it for my laptop!?

    Wow! all you guys are now the Wacom experts!

    Anyhoo, I've only got two things to add:

    one is that you might want to 'choke up' on the pen and hold it a little more vertical than you might with a pencil, so that your fingers can 'drag' a little on the tablet surface; this helps in selection and keeping the pen super steady when clicking/drawing. I've seen people who first start to use Wacom tablets have a hard time clicking on stuff because as they move the pen downward, they also move it in an arc, rather than straight up and down...

    two is that the G 3 tablet rocks for laptop users (like me) because the pen can 'dock' into the top of the tablet (there's a little slot for it to dock into). However, my last tablet was a Intous, and if I go back to doing more photoshop stuff I might pick one up, for it does make a difference...

    I got my Wacom Graphire 3 4x5 this arvo and this thing kicks ***. Even just for general windows usage. I am now smokin around the desktop.

    I just love the customisable pop-up menu that they give you in the settings. Even though it isn't program specific, I think it's still very useful.

    All the tips like reducing the usage area on the tablet and keeping the pen as vertical as possible all make sense and improve usage.

    Greg,

    I'm having an argument, sorry... a vigorous discussion, with an Australian who insists its pronounced " WACK-em"

    Help me out here, where is the official pronunciation spelt out ?

    Gotta call support. They will happily answer "WOCK-em support, how may I help you." I got into a long discussion with the woman about it. "Why on earth would you guys not put that in your readme? I have been going around like an idiot calling it a WAY-com. Everyone must think I am a dumb or something. [sniffle]"
