Precisely. And also, it gives the fragile teensy board some structural support.
I haven't used the tablet pc in a couple of years, and in my new Windows 7 x64 rig, tablets were having couple of problems / annoyance issues.
1) In photoshop whenever I would make a brush stroke, it would have a small delay.
This was an option in the pen and tablet part of the control panel with "holding the pen for right click."
Disabling the option or just simpling turning off the tablet services solved that issue.
2) In my last reply, I mentioned the photoshop losing sensitivity. Apparently this was a prevalent issue with many other people.
They were mostly on similar system as I was on Win7 x64, Photoshop Cs5, etc.
It is discussed in the adobe support forum http://forums.adobe.com/message/2879854
, with a solution.
I hope external links are allowed.
Basically, if you are having problem with losing pressure sensitivity randomly,
downgrade your driver to pro614-3_int.exe
It still loses the sensitivity once in a while,
but the frequency has been drastically reduced. (Before, it would around 1 in 5 to 10. Now it is more like 1 in 20 which is quite workable.)
