I recently got a Wacom graphic tablet, Wacom Intuos Art with multi-touch feature, this is my first ever graphic tablet, and I immediately fall in love with it, the stylus drawing side of it.

Here is the thing, before I buy, I am keep comparing it with Magic Trackpad's touch capabilities. The only gesture of the Wacom tablet that I feel really close to work like Magic Trackpad is two fingers fluid scrolling. The others, like mouse tracking with one finger, can't really track small movement nicely/precisely, only large movement will work well.

The tablet also provide four fingers swipe left/right to switch between desktop spaces. If you use Magic Mouse/Trackpad you can intercept in between the animation, you can reverse it if you want. But, the Wacom tablet kind of like just triggering the shortcut CTRL when you perform the gesture.

I am so new to graphic tablet, I want to know is there any 3rd party software/driver I can use to enhance the experience of this graphic tablet?

Though I lack a Wacom tablet to test it myself, this post seems to indicate that BetterTouchTool supports Wacom tablets to some degree.

BetterTouchTool has a variety of features that will allow you to configure and bind gestures to actions.

    I checked that page as well, my conclusion is BTT is a great software but really not taking graphic tablet as first class citizen.

  • @KentLiau Unfortunately true: it wasn't designed with that in mind. You could write to the developer, he's been known to be quite receptive to feedback and active within various communities.
