Hi Satria,

We don’t officially support drawing tablets right now so issues like this are expected but I’m going to track this as a bug for our engineering team.

Thanks! please work on it, I have the same issue, and that’s the main way I would use it. If my tablet is not supported, I would not use it at all, but the tool is great and it is very valuable to have both the sketches and the final design in the same platform. I was looking for a similar tool, but it’s great to have it inside of figma.

Does anyone find it strange that as a designer the most basic functionality I want is to replace paper/pencil for wireframes or written user flow creation/flow map by hand, yet no one who puts out a whiteboard product does this well? It’s even an afterthought to some…

Am I doing my entire job wrong or something… or does no one else actually do low to mid fidelity wireframes anymore?
