My tablet "Bamboo Pen & Touch" not responsive in Unity 4 on Win 8 or 7.



My tablet "Bamboo Pen & Touch" not responsive in Unity 4 on Win 8 or 7.

Repro Steps:

1. Use a bamboo wacom tablet, ensure latest driver is installed
2. Fire up Unity 4 on Win 7
3. Observe none of the top menu screen is responsive to the input
4. Repeat steps on Win 8 machine
5. Observe lack of response

Desired outcome: Unity to pick up Bamboo wacom tablet input, other software such as Photoshop and Modo respond perfectly.

Need Unity to work better for artists needs

    Also currently attempting to use a Surface Pro 3 but cannot.
    Pen and Touch input does not work. This extends to all pen & touch input.

    There is a workaround related to "Windows Ink" for Wacom based products (that have this option, some Bamboo tablets do not have this).
    There is no workaround for N-Trig based products.

    Just bought a Surface Pro 3 and to my disappointment, I also cannot use pen or touch input in the editor.
