    I absolutely love the natural scrolling in Lion, especially on my MBP. HOwever I use a Wacom Tablet with my Mini. I ordered a magic trackpad but is there any way to scroll like that with a Wacom Tablet?

    I ask because Lion has no visible scrollbars and its a pain trying to scroll with this tablet LOL..

    does anyone have any suggestions?

    much thanks

    You can turn the scroll bars in permanently in System Preferences.

    I have an Intuos4 and I've been trying to figure out what to do as well. I like the natural scrolling on the MBP's trackpad. On the tablet, however, natural scrolling reverses the scroll wheel (bearable) and the behaviour of the grabber hand is now reversed.

    I'm hoping one day for the scroll setting to be device independent.

    Wacom tablets have had natural-scrolling for a long time; you can bind any one of your buttons to "grab/scroll" to do that. However, because Lion reverses the scroll direction, that's made it so that NOW, Wacom tablets do view-scrolling instead. Wacom is working on a fix for this, but it'll probably be a few days before it comes out.

    It's not a bug so much as good intentions applied with a lack of knowledge.
