How am i suppose to scroll with a Wacom Pen Tablet?

Posted

Well, it seems like i have 2 options, and they're both bad.

1. Use the "windows ink" option, that lets me scroll flawlessly by simply touch and drag anywhere on the page, but that option somehow prevents me from doing other crucial actions like click and drag on text to copy it, and is incompatible with gesture add-ons.

2. Don't use the "windows ink" option, that lets me operate firefox almost flawlessly, but i have no reasonable way to scroll pages. (using scrollbars in 2018 is of course laughable, and using "middle click" + drag on a pen is very uncomfortable)

Well, the same can be said for a Logitech mouse.

People have been using pen tablets for decades, so someone might actually have an answer for me here.
