Use Bamboo Slate without Internet access

Postby skyeeee » Wed 2. Jan 2019, 02:53

I'm considering using the Bamboo Slate for our written exams. However, the rules strictly forbid using any form of devices requiring internet access. I would like to know if it’s possible to copy the files directly from the Bamboo Slate to a laptop without first uploading them to any cloud services?

Best regards

Should be possible if you have the minimum requirements.
You'll need a computer with support for Bluetooth 4.0 and Windows 10 and/or Mac OSX10.12+

For your use, you might also want to consider a different device, the Wacom Clipboard - https://www.wacom.com/en-de/enterprise/business-solutions/hardware/smartpads/phu-111

Thank you for the reply.

I'm sure you're right that the Wacom Clipboard would be better for the task than the Bamboo Slate.

however, I decided to spend a bit more and buy the Intuos Pro Paper Edition, as it seemed the most versatile in the long run :)
