Intuos Mouse for Intuos Pro 2017

Postby Tomorrow » Thu 13. Jul 2017, 15:39

I understand that there is no support for the KC-100-00 Intuos Mouse for the 2017 Intuos Pro tablets.
This is a massive disappointment, as despite it's well documented flaws (double click errors), using the mouse in pen mode on the previous Intuos tablets was super efficient, precise and fast. Especially with two large monitors, nothing compares to the speed and precision.
I cannot believe that this is disabled in hardware - supporting a mouse must be infinitely easier than supporting a myriad of different pens (no pressure sensitivity or tilt needed for example - mouse drivers have been around for decades...) and the mouse is also recognised but the tablet (if I place it on the tablet, use of the pen is disabled). The argument that it is incompatible with touch is untrue, as my last tablet had touch and worked with the mouse.

I realise that this may be a niche need, however, I how have a super expensive Logitech Mouse which I hate, that is less customisable than the Intuos mouse. Please can you either enable the mouse with a driver update so that your newest tablet is not less capable than every Intuos tablet that came before, AND develop a new mouse that doesn't have the double click error. Touch is a terrible replacement for the mouse. It's like finger painting when I need a precision tool and it's completely different to using a trackpad.

Please, please, please bring the mouse back.

If you prefer a mouse on the tablet, I can only suggest one of the older models. The KC-100 is more than a regular mouse - it has rotation sensing (allows working in tablet-orientation or mouse-orientation) and that requires special handling in tablet firmware. The Intuos Pro is not prepared for that and placing the mouse on the tablet only interferes with the pen detection.
