    Hi all

    I am having trouble finding a writing tablet for Chinese on a Mac.

    I have a Penpower tablet for my PC but that computer is now in computer heaven.

    If any member can recommend a writing tablet for Chinese that works with a mac that would be greatly appreciated!

    I know I can try to use parallels or vmware to run the penpower tablet but would much prefer a tablet that works without them. Thanks!

    Why not use the Mac OS X trackpad handwriting feature? It works for me, but I'm faster at typing PinYin.

    Good luck!

    Hi,
    1. From the pic it appears that the trackpad Chinese is only for simple Chinese. Is that correct?
    2. On my my CD Blackbook running Snow 10.6.2 i don't have that option, any idea why?
    Thanks

    That is possible.... I always thought it was weird that PCs have it standard and i have not been able to find it on my mac.

    Oh FYI, you don't need multitouch to write Chinese. Maybe it is just on later versions that happen to also have multitouch supported.
