question

Does this device work with Windows 8?
Asked by: Francine L.
Wacom did not come out with any drivers for Windows 8. And this is a discontinued item. So I do not think they will.

question

What version of Illustrator and Photoshop is this compatible with? Does it work with Adobe CC?
Asked by: Anonymous
I bought this about a year ago and couldn't get it to work with anything! You have to use their Sketch Manager software and it is horrible. I probably should have returned it... I don't use it, which is a shame, because the concept of it is great. Hope this helped...

question

Does it Works with any paper? or do I need to buy special paper? how ez is to find the ink replacemente?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can use any paper. The receiver will clip to the top edge of your media and will track the pen. It's best to use a pad with a hard backer to keep a fixed relationship between the receiver and the work area. Or even better keep it flat on a table. The device comes with several ink replacements and they are available for purchase on the wacom website and well as many retailers that sell the inkling.
