Using a digitizer tablet
progeCAD supports tablets compatible with the TabletWorks driver and has its own tablet overlay. For instructions on installing the tablet driver and using the buttons on your pointing device, refer to your hardware documentation.
Three options are available with the Tablet command:
- Configure Maps the tablet overlay to the tablet itself. Configure the tablet if you plan to select progeCAD tools from the tablet overlay.
- Calibrate Maps points on the tablet, in absolute coordinates, to points on a drawing. Calibrate the tablet if you intend to digitize points. This process is convenient for tracing paper drawings.
- Tablet ON/OFF Turns tablet calibration (digitizer mode) on and off. Use this to switch between tool selection and digitizer input. To use the tablet for tool selection, tablet mode must be turned off.
