Topic tags/keywords: sketchup

Are there any Sketchup users out there who use it on a Windows 8 computer? Also, is it possible to use a stylus to draw on the tablet in Sketchup?? Please let me know your experiences.
Thanks,
Mitch

I have had no problems using sketchup with win 8, but I haven’t had a chance to hook up my wacom yet. I haven’t spent much time on it yet.

Mitch, I upgraded to Windows 8 about 4 months ago and have not had any issues with Sketchup. I use Sketchup about 5 out of 7 days a week and all is well. About the tablet … sorry no idea. Bruce

I have been using a table with SU for the past many years. works great, but you cannot free-draw if that’s your plan
