Q. Why pressure sensitivity doesn’t work for Adobe Photoshop?

Now it works well with Adobe Photoshop. Adobe applications had used different device driver(wintab) for supporting pressure sensitivity until Adobe CS versions. However, Windows Ink API (supported since Windows 8) is adapted since Adobe CC versions, you can get pressure sensitivity on VirtualTablet with those environment

Q. Which devices are supported by VirtualTablet?

Please refer to this page

Q. By any chance VirtualTablet will support Windows XP/Vista in the future?

We’re very sorry but no. Windows XP/Vista use the different device driver, so we have to develop separately from the scratch and we don’t have much resources to support it currently. Please upgrade your OS.

Q. Why don’t VirtualTablet support Bluetooth or USB connection?

It’s available now. You can connect with Bluetooth. If you want to use USB connection, you can use USB tethering mode for this. Please refer to “How to use tethering mode” for the detail

    Hi, thanks for the app.

    I’m using it on my windows tablet PIPO W5 with an active stylus.

    It’s working great.

    A question : Will the windows client app be upgraded to have the same functionality as last android version : like Drawing mirror mode and Bluetooth connection.

    I like this app very much, for me is sort of life saving.

    The problem I get is that the mouse mode is not working like a mouse. I guess mouse should work like a touch pad with adjustable writing scope. But on my device, it is like a re-centered pen mode, and the scope is not movable.

    It would be wonderful to see more update on this product.

    I am eager to see it become perfect.


    If it can also be used as a multi-touch track pad for win10, I mean 3 fingers for switching virtual desktop. It would even be better

    Hi. I’m thinking of getting a Surface Pro 4 and a key factor will be your app. It’s critical that using the Tablet with your app behaves as closely to my Wacom Intuos as possible on my Mac. Unfortunately, this isn’t something I can try in store. I’m also having a difficult time finding any reviews of anyone using a surface pro with a Mac in this fashion. Do you know of any videos or reviews that are that specific?

    The aspects I’m mostly concerned with are:
    – reliability
    – pressure sensitivity working in photoshop on the Mac
    – hover mode working and registering clicks reliability

    Any input is greatly appreciated. As are your developments in creating this! It would be amazing to have a Surface Pro behave like this!

      And of course, latency is a big concern as well.

      I’m using the Surface Pro 2 and confirm that the pressure sensitivity and hovering both work in Photoshop.

      I use this mainly for OneNote, and occasionally I have to tap twice (harder) on a button or brushstroke for it to register it properly. I cannot confirm that it is the same for Photoshop.

      I find this to be a functional solution to being able to handwrite on a Mac. It is not as seamless as writing using native Surface software, but gets the job done! I couldn’t tell you how it compares to using a Wacom tablet, I’ve never used one… However, the SP2 uses Wacom tech for its stylus so it should be fairly similar I’d imagine. Keep in mind that the SP4 uses Microsofts own digitiser technology, but it writes better anyway so whatever experience you turn out to get, it should be better than what I have.

      Hope that helps!

    Just curious in the future if you could make the virtual tablet area transparent so that I could use it in conjunction with a desktop streamer like Splashtop? The combination of these two products would transform my Surface Pro into a Wacom-calibur second screen, but as it stands now I can either see the mirrored screen or the VirtualTablet but not both…

  6. Daniel November 12, 2016 at 8:53 PM #

    Some ideas for future versions:

    1. Currently the input area is purely for pen, it’d be awesome if you could also utilise it for touch so it replicates a touch pad. There is an app called BTT remote that does this really well. It would be very handy to have this so I am not constantly reaching for the mouse or touchpad.

    2. I mainly use the software to draw on OneNote for Mac from a Surface Pro 2. I wonder if flipping the pen can trigger the eraser tool.

    3. It would be absolutely awesome if the screen could be streamed to the input panel!

    I’m curious, in the future, will pressure sensitivity be supported in other major graphic design programs, such as Gimp, Inkscape or Krita?

    Thanks for the great work so far!

    Great software.
    However, can I select in my “Multi-Monitor”-Setup on which monitor I draw?
    Currently, it always works on the primary monitor…

    Love the app but 2 questions

    Tablet – Note 10.1 2014 edition

    1. Is there a way to make the virtual tablet bigger to take up more of the screen instead of the current 3 x 10 or so area it current covers?

    2. Any way we can get a feature for transparent tablet background>?

    I like your app.

    I used ‘CLIP STUDIO PAINT’, that’s Japanese painting tool.
    but this tool recognized not pressure sensitivity.

    Would you support only Photoshop?

    • jm December 1, 2016 at 11:25 PM #

      Umm…. Sorry. I apologize. my mistake.

      ‘CLIP STUDIO PAINT’ setting was Wintab. I must changed TabletPC.
