I'm thinking about getting this pen tablet so that I can do handwritten journaling on my layouts. Is this tablet capable of doing that? Also, about how big is the work area?

I hear it has pen pressures - does that feature work just like a pen, where the harder you press the darker the writing (and vice versa)?

Thank you!

I have two Bamboo touch tablets, one small and one medium. I love my tablets for detail work and for fast zooming. But, honestly, I don't love them for writing or drawing. It is awkward, IMO, to draw with the tablet flat on the desk, and I am not much better off with the tablet moved to a comfortable angle. Of course, I can't draw very well in the first place, so perhaps I am not the right one to answer this. I had my handwriting turned into a font a couple of years ago, which I love because I type faster than I write! But I don't want to discourage you from getting a tablet. I much prefer them, just not for the things you mentioned.

The pen pressure can be adjusted, and yes, it's much like it sounds, the more pressure applied the darker you are writing or whatever you are using it for.

Thanks, Liz! I've heard it's good for detailed work, like extractions, and that's one of the reasons I want to get it.

Maybe I should look into getting my handwriting turned into a font. I definitely type faster than I can write.
