Hey you all!

I'm wondering if anyone can answer my question.

I own Dell Inspiron 14-5000 with touchscreen, a 2-in-1 Laptop. Whenever I switch to tablet mode I can paint with my finger on the screen f.ex. in Paint. Although it is not possible in Adobe Illustrator. 

Will I be able to draw with a Dell Active Pen (when I buy one) in programs such as Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop directly on my screen in tablet mode, or do I need to invest in a proffesional pen tablet f.ex. any of the Wacom series? Don't want to spend money on a Dell Active pen if it won't allow me to create drawings in Illustrator from my screen.

 

Thanks in advance! Have a great weekend x

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Yes, you will be able to draw using Dell Active Pen in Illustrator however drawing tablets gives you more flexibility when it comes to freehand drawings. In order to draw on Illustrator on your laptop, you can change the workspace to Touch and then you can explore the Touch workspace. 

 

Regards

Rishabh

Hey I have the Dell active pen but it doesn't recognise it. I can draw one line then it won't do it. The model I have is the PN579X with the XPS 13 2in1.

I've figure out that if I can get the brush onto basic settings it works but if it's in touch capacity it doesn't. But everytime I touch the screen with the pen it goes to touch capacity.

Hey yall! I'm having difficulties to draw with a stylus pen on my Lenovo yoga c740 touchscreen laptop on illustrator touchmode. It misses lot of paintbrush draws and wont show draw until it's finished. Drawing with finger works perfectly. Drawing with stylus is better when not in touchmode. Everything is up to date, tried gpu performance on/off, gpu preview on/off, is there anything to do? Photoshop and fresco works well. Could it be hardware related (Intel uhd 620 graphics) not enough vram? Lenovo support didn't know anything of this.

 

Thank you
