I used to use my CTH-670 on Macbook before that update, but now I have some problems with the pen. The touch still working, but the pen not. Yesterday, somehow the pen start working after I plug the USB on Mac, but stopped to work later after I reset the system(The table still identify the pen with the color changing). Anyone has any idea how to make this Pen start working again?

The CTH-670 is not supported on OSX Catalina. I would recommend you to consider upgrading your tablet.

The pen worked for some minutes and I think that’s still possible. May have any alternative way, isn’t it?

So as Wacom says, it is not supported. However as you actually got it somewhat functional I’d look into the security preferences to see if you can add the Wacom application to the allowed input and accessibility apps, may help but this is still a shot in the dark.

There is more trouble with CTH-6x as for me, I cannot get the pen working at all on Catalina. Quite frustrating. Wacom, will you ever ship supported driver for the CTH-6x range on newer MacOS?

I dont understand why mac app "Connect my tablet" works while wacom keeps saying "incompatible with our hardware". It would be better to say honestly: "we do not want to support old models".

A friendly reddit person pointed out that this app on the mac App Store will fix the problem : https://apps.apple.com/us/app/connect-my-tablet/id1352696344?mt=12
It's $10 but I've bought it myself and I can confirm it finally made the pen work on Catalina 10.15.1 with my CTH-670.

I wonder if this app will restore the use of the Intuos 3 touch strip and Photoshop 2020.
I emailed the app developer, I'll report back if I hear anything. If anyone tries the app, please let us know how it goes.

CTH-670 will work on Catalina using my fixed Bamboo drivers here:

I fixed a couple of bugs in Wacom's driver that prevent it from loading on Catalina.
