    Default Can I use Adobe Illustrator with a tablet PC for drawing?

    Hi,

    I want and advice.

    Im planning to buy a tablet pc, but i want to know if i can work with adobe illustrator i mean use the pen instead the mouse to draw.

    The point is that im an archaeologist and im spending too much time creating cathalogs of pieces in the common computer drawing the pieces over the photos in illustator, i want to optimize my time finding a easier way to draw with the computer, do you think that a tablet pc can be the answer?

    Regards

    I frequently use my tablet pc for drawing in Illustrator. You'll have to tweak your pencil tool settings though. Using the stylus doesn't get rid of the need to use the convert anchor tool to get exactly the desired bend/angle though.

    I would never go back to using a mouse though. Ever.

    If Illustrator works like Inkscape, you'll still need a keyboard.
