Being able to properly use my Wacom tablet with worldmachine would be great, currently I have to use another mouse for the clicks as worldmachine doesnt like the clicks of my wacom tablet. I use worldmachine sometimes for 12 hours in a row and my arm can get pretty sore while using the mouse all day..please its a standard device for an artist to use and I would greatly appreciated it..and Im sure others would to. 

I guess I should mention that the main problem I have is connecting nodes..when I click in the node conection 99% of the time a new conection wire is not made and also the right click to let go of a node wire takes quite a few clicks.  Ill try and describe it more if you need it.


Just tried this with my tablet (also a wacom) and it basically works, but it's hard to right-click without also moving the cursor - which would be interpreted as moving the canvas. The issue with connecting nodes is a similar one, I think.

This could be avoided if moving stuff around wasn't enabled by a simple click/drag, but CTRL+click/drag. Maybe as an optional feature.

I have a wacom as well and can give it a test. It should be possible to tweak the threshold to make it work better.
