that's unfortunately not that flexible. so if I would want to get some  
values from the table while playing the it, and at the same time control  
my patch with the mouse, it wouldn't be possible for the tablet not to  
control the pointer but still send in?
and if I want to use the values from the click, it can happen that the  
table will just click anything on the screen?

I guess that's a behaviour from windows, and not from this (or any other)  
tablet, right?
