up until Sierra my Wacom bluetooth graphics pad worked fine, but now, forget it. I have been toying with the idea of a new jobbie, but I haven't been able to find one I can afford with both a mouse (for SWMBO) and a pen for the slave (me). If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them please?
I also have a question? Why do the pens need a replaceable nib? The one I have now doesn't and until Wacom stopped upgrading the driver it had worked perfectly well with a hard nylon type plastic nib. I gave good pressure differences and was a very good bit of kit. So if anyone can tell me why the changeable nib I would appreciate it.John.
Never forget that you are unique, just like everyone else.

I haven't used a Wacom Tablet since the days when Noah was building his Arc.
But even back then, as I recall, the nibs could come in different sizes and widths for different types of drawing and could also be damaged and would require replacement, or were just plain worn out from plain old wear and tare. Sure nothing unusual about that.
And as I recall, just the pen alone was expensive enoughSo it would be rather expensive having to replace the whole thing and tip every time.
