Export your creations to your computer.
Finalize your drawings with your favorite graphic software, by activating the graphic tablet mode in Repaper Studio.
👉 Good to know:

Mac users need to give Repaper Studio access to their computer for using this mode. Please find further information here.
Repaper Stylus, the new iskn stylus, provides you with the best experience in tablet mode. It can be used directly on the surface of The Slate without any paper, and replaces your computer mouse. (Repaper Stylus can be purchased separately in our online store)
How to use the Repaper & Stylus mode?
Download and install the PC or Mac version of the Repaper Studio drawing app.
Open the app.
Connect The Slate to your computer.
Click on "CONFIGURE" in Repaper Studio to set up The Slate as a graphic tablet.
Once you've clicked on "Configure" in Repaper Studio you can set up the graphic tablet mode:
"Switch on the graphic tablet mode": Use the toggle button to enable / disable the graphic tablet mode. Once the mode is activated, the option will remain selected by default.
"Size of the active area": Select the size of the active drawing zone of The Slate (small, medium or large).
Click on "Save your settings" to save your settings.
👉 Good to know:
The graphic tablet mode enables you to use The Slate with your favorite graphics software, but is not compatible with Repaper & Screen. Indeed, if you try to use Repaper & Screen in graphic tablet mode, this mode will disable by default.
When using The Slate in graphic tablet mode, be sure to keep the Repaper Studio app running in the background: if you exit Repaper Studio, this mode is disabled.
Since September 2019, our new Repaper Studio app has allowed you to open and manage The Slate's graphic tablet mode. If you have the old version of the Graphic Tablet Configurator, uninstall it and update the Imagink app.
