Adobe's stylus and digital ruler are pretty and easy to configure.
The aluminum stylus is lightweight and surprisingly comfortable -- I expected it to be too slippery. The button on the barrel brings up the Pen Tip Menu.
While charging, the LED on Ink's case glows red.
You can select a color for Ink's LED to differentiate it from the other Inks you may run into on your creative travels.
The button on Slide cycles through the Trace Pack or Stamp Pack selections.
Basically, the whole point of Slide is to simulate your fingers in a splayed position, as opposed to the traditional two-finger swipe position.
Never fear -- if you've downloaded the apps you can still buy the hardware.
Adobe supplies (very) brief videos to show you how to use the hardware.
Tutorials within the app walk you through the stylus setup. Slide doesn't require any setup.
Your Cloud Clipboard and palm position settings are stored in the pen tip, which lets you access them while using someone else's tablet or account.
When you indicate how you hold the stylus, the apps can adjust how they display what appears under the pen tip while drawing.
Because everything should have a name.
You can set the color that the stylus' LED will glow in order to differentiate it from other peoples'. Hopefully, no one else will pick orange.
You can access the Cloud Clipboard and color palettes, as well as initiate sharing and see the current tool settings, from the Pen Tip Menu. You can do these things from within the apps as well.
