Why no new Intuos XL

Postby mladenp » Wed 18. Dec 2019, 14:30

Hello Wacom community,

i'm working on Wacom pen tablets for the past 25 years. Started with a tiny ArtPad 2, but soon i realised that professional retouching on dual displays works best with bigger tablets. I used different Large versions of Intuos tablets, but when I upgraded to two 27" 2560 x 1440 screens i had to get the XL version which i'm using for the past 5 years.

The lack of a new XL version of the recent Intuos Pro series is very concerning. The Driver still works with the old PTK-1240, but i'm afraid that wouldn’t last very long.

All retouching professionals that I know, still use the XL version and everyone is concerned.

I tried to work with the smaller Large version, but because of the smaller size it is too fast and with very low precision.

I also tried the Display Toggle, but this is no option for me either. It just another button which i need to click and it changes my workflow drastically. Same for the Precision Mode.

What are your suggestions or hints. How do you work with smaller tablets on bigger screens.

Do you think that we can expect a new XL Intuos?

many thanks!
