The ARCUS XL Graphics Tablet is the ultimate input system for anyone wanting to let their creativity run wild. Whether youâ€™re creating technical drawings or doing professional photo retouching, the ARCUS XL is the perfect tool for all your graphics projects.
That said, the ARCUS XL isnâ€™t restricted to graphics applications â€“ you can also create attractive Presentations in a flash and add comments and notes to your presentations while youâ€™re delivering them, insert your signature into documents or even just use the stylus as an ergonomic mouse replacement
Customisable input area
The ARCUS XL features an extra-large input area of up to 203Ã—127mm (16:10). You can even customise
this area using the easy-to-use driver software â€“ really handy if you prefer working with a smaller input area or if your monitor has a different aspect ratio.
Use two monitors at the same time? The ARCUS XL Graphics Tablet supports this too. In just a few clicks you can configure whether the input area covers both screens or just one using the easy-to-use driver menu.
Fully configurable hotkeys
In addition to the two stylus buttons, the ARCUS XL gives you 21 additional hotkeys â€“ 8 on the left-hand side and 13 stylus shortcuts above the input area. All the hotkeys are freely configurable in the driver menu â€“ whether you want to start a program or quickly select a tool â€“ plus you can use the accompanying stickers to label each customised function.
Stylus or Mouse mode â€“ you decide
Every point on the tabletâ€™s input area corresponds to a pixel on the screen. Touch the tabletâ€™s input area using the stylus and the mouse pointer will immediately jump to the corresponding pixel on the screen. However, if you prefer controlling the cursor like when using a mouse, you can switch to this input method whenever you like in the driver menu. The cursor will then stay in the same place when you lift the stylus up and move it. Thanks to this feature, you can simply continue working the way you’re used to
Pressure-sensitive stylus tip for intuitive drawing
The familiar pen-shaped design of the two-button stylus doesnâ€™t just make it the perfect tool for graphics artists. Depending on the tool youâ€™ve selected, thanks to its pressure-sensitive tip itâ€™ll feel like youâ€™re using a real pen in graphics programs: the harder you press, the wider or darker the line becomes. Whereas a mouse only offers black and white, the stylus delivers 1,024 shades of grey, giving your drawings a wealth of detail and realism.
