Using a Wacom pen as a mouse in live lessons

Postby HellyDouglas » Wed 17. Feb 2021, 18:49

In my live lessons, I was finding it difficult switching between my mouse and Wacom digital pen while teaching. I didn't realise at first that I could use the pen as a mouse replacement (duh!)

It makes life easier and reduces the hardware devices I need to prepare before a live lesson - just plug it in and start using straight away.

When you hover your pen over the tablet surface, it shows the curser on your PC screen. Just tap the pen to press on buttons, like you would with a mouse.

Hey Helly,
how long did it take you to get used to the new pen and what do you think is the greatest difference to normal mouse?

Not long at all. At first I found myself reaching for the mouse, so it was just a case of getting used to it - within a day or so it felt completely natural.
It's easier than the mouse because I don't need to click, just tap with the pen. It's definitely kinder on my hands that holding an external mouse for hours! Much more comfortable.
