About Digitizing Tablets

You can use the puck or stylus of a digitizing tablet as a pointing device, or you
can trace a paper drawing into a file.

A digitizing tablet, or digitizer, is a peripheral device that can be used to trace
paper drawings into a drawing file or to choose commands from a digitizing tablet
overlay. With the Wintab driver, the tablet pointer can also be used instead of a
mouse as a system pointer to choose user interface elements and drawing objects or
to interact with the operating system. The tablet pointer can be a puck or stylus.

The digitizing tablet must first be configured and then can optionally be calibrated.

  • When the tablet is configured, portions of the tablet surface are designated as menu areas and a screen-pointing
    area.
  • When the tablet is calibrated, it can be used to trace geometry from an existing paper drawing or photograph into
    a drawing.

You can easily switch between using the tablet uncalibrated as a system pointer (Tablet
mode off) or calibrated for digitizing a drawing (Tablet mode on) with the TABLET
command. If a screen-pointing area has been designated, a Float button is displayed
on the status bar and toggles the screen-pointing area on and off.
