Will Synergy work with Wacom tablets?

I asked the support team also for that feature. Our team of artists or the people that suffer from RSI and use a tablet to help that condition would greatly benefit from it. A "simple" tablet support could be a hotkey that would switch the computer receiving the tablet moves. This seems preferable to mapping the tablet surface to different monitors since we would end up with a tiny area of the tablet for each monitor. Could you guys let us know when we can expect a tablet support to be implemented?

We have some response on the Synergy work with Wacom tablets? We really need this feature, this is what is missing for me migrate to Synergy. I believe that many artists are in the same condition. The idea of Miguel Goncalves is perfect: "A" simple "tablet support Could be a hotkey que would switch the computer receiving the tablet moves."  They might say if there is already this feature or something similar?

Hello Synergy Team,

Yes, I'm also pretty much interested to share my Wacom tablet between my two synergy computers. I can see that the first entry of this topic is pretty much old, any news of graphics tablet sharing feature for synergy? 


Thank you.

This is likely not the application for Wacom tablet that you have in mind. I use 3, one on each of the computers that I regularly have on, using Synergy. The nearest tablet attaches to my Synergy server, a Win 10 with a Logitech lighted keyboard. Yes, it serves as the mouse for all the Synergy linked machines.  When I need to mouse around on one of the other computers, I just move the mouse to the next pad. This is the only purpose for the Wacom CTE-440 tablets, they don't work on my Linux graphics programs. They are old obsolete tablets that I bought from eBay for about $10 each, over several years. The active area is small, but I have the dpi pretty sensitive. Very slight movements are all I need.

It seems with every Synergy update I need to work on one of the client computers directly, and usually, it can be done with just a mouse action.

The basic answer to your OP is Yes, Synergy works fine with Wacom tablets, at least my old ones.
