The importance of installing tablet drivers

Without tablet drivers you won't be able to:

  • Use tilt

  • Use pressure

  • Configure the buttons on the pen

  • Configure buttons on the tablet

  • Control which display the tablet is mapped to

  • Ensure that you have matching aspect ratios between your tablet and display so that you are drawing without distortion

  • Control the pressure curve of the pen - though you will still be able to control it in those applications that support it.
