PaperPower by Piptel
« on: January 31, 2018, 01:12:15 PM »
Hi guys,
I'm trying to find a copy of a graphics tablet utility software called PaperPower. Circa 1995. By Piptel software.
I remember reading it somewhere that it could be used to customize old Wacom ADB tablets.
Does anyone have any leads?

Thanks!

P.S. Here's an excerpt from MacWorld:

PaperPower lets you build and execute macros - short programs you
can use to automate operating-system commands or application-program functions.
First you design an overlay in which macros are organized as Keys (tablet areas that work
like HyperCard buttons). Then the overlay is assigned a unique pattern of dots (called
pips). This allow's PaperPower to catalog and recognize different overlays. Finally,
you print the overlay this is where the paper comes in and place it on the tablet
surface, where the overlay identifies the Keys, making them accessible w'ith a touch.
