Portege M780 - how to activate pen pressure sensitivity?
      #38327 - 08/26/10 12:40 AM

Hello,

I would like to know if my Tablet PC has a Wacom digitizer, but Toshiba doesn't answer. I tested it with Autodesk SketchBook Pro and the pressure sensitivity works fine with this software, but it doesn't work in Photoshop, Illustrator or Painter. I read your review Toshiba Portege M780 and I noticed you guys downloaded drivers from Wacom, that's what I did, but I haven't been able to make the pressure sensitivity work in Photoshop.

Could you please help me with this matter? If my Tablet PC doesn't have a Wacom digitizer I'm going to return it, because that's why I bought this tablet, I thought it had a Wacom Digitizer.

Thank you,

Jairo

You can verify that your M780 has a Wacom digitizer by going to system properties and looking at the entries for the digitizer.

Sometimes it's challenging installing the drivers, but if you go with the Wacom Pen Enabled drivers for tablet PCs available on Wacom's site it should work (alternative drivers are the Wacom Bamboo). If you have installed those and you don't see a yellow exclamation point next to your digitizer in device manager, you may have to remove the factory drivers, then install the Wacom drivers.

Oh MY! Thank you so much Lisa, after days and nights of searching everywhere on the internet and trying and failing, you finally solved my problem, the Bamboo driver worked perfectly.

Thank you so much for your prompt answer and totally effective help.
