    Hurrow Mac Pros,

    I know I can input Chinese characters on a SL MBP, however I am too lazy to upgrade my MBP to Snow Leopard, well I just don't see the need to. The Mac Pro is my main computer, and I would love to be able to write Chinese characters with my Intuos4. Since SL has chinese hand input built it, is there anyway I can get it to work with the tablet? Or must I buy a program like Penpower?

    I am fluent in Cantonese, and 50% of Mandarin, I cannot write anymore because I grew up in the States, but I can still write characters if I have the actual word right in front of me, which will be useful for when I edit minor documents with Chinese text.

    Thank you very much!

    after doing a bit of reading and searching. this is probably the most comprehensive resource on what you want ... (you already have found an alternative - PenPower ...)

    Handwriting Input

    The other alternative is "Wenlin", you can read more there.

    Okie doke, thank you so much, just as I thought.

    I like the default chinese input on my macbook pro very much, easy to use and convenient. I will look into pen power and wenlin.
