Why doesn't mousedown work with a tablet?

It's confusing that the tablet would work with mouseover but not mousedown. I need it to click on something for another patch to appear and my whole composition is being used with only a wacom bamboo tablet. Any way to get this to work? Javascript?

I'm using the interaction patch connected to toggle for various patches to appear once you click on the text. It clears the screen as there is a main manu of different options and then a different screen appears.

This is difficult...

Well it should be fine. Does that bamboo stylus have buttons you can assign to a click/double click? Try that too if it doesn.

The other way is to do your own hit testing. Simply see if the X, Y output from the mouse or the Tablet patch both fall inside the range you desire. I did lots of that kind of hit testing before and after Interaction patches were added to QC.

Thank you, I got it to work with click count. Wouldn't let me delete the post after I figured it out. I do wish that Origami had a graphics tablet included as a device. I like the interaction 2 patch and Button patch
