When using photoshop cs5, I am unable to use any tool properly when using the touch screen.
Using the touchscreen, I am able to select the tool and other buttons, but when i attempt to draw with the brush tool, dragging a stylus across the screen does not create a line, and only visual feedback is seen. Dots can be drawn, ad the only way a line can be created is to double-click and drag which does not always work and is irritating to use.
Please help, I have tried searching for a long while and even contacted computer support but they directed me here. I am unable to find a suitable driver, as suggested on the troubleshooting page or any other solution. Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks.
Computer: Asus Vivobook S550CM

Have you found any information on this issue yet? I am currently shopping for a laptop as a secondary computer for my CS5 software and am wondering if touchscreen is better or not (for someone who's always used a Wacom).
This have been touch on many times here. There are two api use to support touch type devices like tablets and touch screens. The API that many touch screen tablet and computers use lack features Adobe Pen support uses example the API does not support things like pen tilt. Therefore Adobe does not support this API. You need a device driver for you touch screen that user the API Adobe uses for tablet support.
