    No, you have to have a stylus. The stylus has circuitry inside that breaks the electrical field of the tablet. Assuming it is a Wacom of course.

    You can get replacement styluses from Wacom, but you would have to contact them.

    Yes, you click with the mouse when you press the stylus down. There are a lot of old school artists that successfully transitioned to digital media so maybe you could do some searching through artist blogs and find someone that walks through the process they used to retrain themselves.

    That sound like some sort of touch-pad rather than a modern standard tabled...

    Its a UC-Logic, and it's got to be at least five years old now, maybe six.

    I hate admitting defeat, so you guys have me looking for the Stylus again....

    Am I the only one who actually prefers my touchpad over a mouse... maybe's it's just because I haven't used a mouse for digital mapping.

    Just to throw my few cents in here.

    I got the smallest Wacom (Bamboo) and never had a problem that it is too small. In fact I dont think I wanna have a bigger one...

    Though I use the tablet only for drawing, nothing else. Not because I wouldt like my tablet - I really love it - but I am used to my mouse for browsing etc.

    Now if I had a tablet I would love it but because I've gotten so use to the touchpad and it responds alot faster (for me at least) than a mouse I prefer it until I get a tablet.

    Just remember a tablet uses a stylus and not a finger so it may not "feel" the same at first.

    I'm looking at used Wacom's on Ebay. What kind of trouble could I expect buying used?

    Hm... Good question. Honestly the only trouble I can see is that it doesn't work. There aren't really any moving parts or anything. Oh, here's one - you may have to buy replacement nibs for the stylus if the previous owner either lost them or ground them to nothing. Ugh... just realized that would be really bad. If the current nub in the stylus has been worn away to nothing you'll have a tough time removing it. I would suggest having the auctioner put up a picture of the stylus tip so show that it is in decent shape.
