    When I try to use my intuos tablet with pixelmator I can't draw lines.
    I get dots but no lines.
    I called wacom and they told me it's an issue with pixelmator.

    Everything works fine with adobe apps.

    How do I get the tablet to work in pixelmator.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Probably not, Pixelmator isn't really that advanced that it can handle sensitive pressure tools and stuff like that.

    It's just an easy to use, basic but still powerful image editor.

    When you really want to try your Wacom and do more advanced stuff give Affinity Photo (bitmap) or Affinity Designer (vector) a spin. Affordable apps with more advanced tools.

    Thanks.
    I have adobe CS with PS and use the tablet mostly with Lr.

    The thing is that adobe only lets you install on two Macs and I have a third one that I want to use which already has pixelmator on it.

    I'm really surprised that it wouldn't work with pixelmator.
    I really just need it for basic drawing.

    Have you tried Affinity Designer?

    Pretty nice.
