    Default High Sierra and Wacom tablets

    Just as I was thinking about installing High Sierra on my iMac, I found out about this on the Wacom website.

    Driver for 10.13 High Sierra

    Apple has announced 10.13 High Sierra will be released September 25th. Wacom is currently working on a new driver update to support the new operating system. The new Wacom driver will be ready by late October at the latest. Due to nature of the changes in High Sierra, the existing Wacom driver for 10.12 will not work. To continue to use your tablet uninterrupted, Wacom suggests not to upgrade to 10.13 until the new driver is released. Once released the update will appear in the Wacom Desktop Center and posted on the Wacom driver page found here.

    Wacom have now released a driver for Mac OS 10.13. As yet I haven't installed 10.13.

    Installed with no problems on my MacBook Retina ... just check the various notes regarding the conversion to new Apple file system before you begin.

    Thanks for that info. A friend who is far more au fait with Macs than me (not that that's difficult) has had lots of problems, including Nik software not working and constant crashes. Just wondered if you have Nik suite.

    John, if you want Nik to work, as I did from PhotoShop, then the trick is to change the settings in the Plugin to change what clicking OK does from creating a new layer to saving in the current layer. See the comment from Clement Pijls here: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photo...-etsmbuo0hurcg

    This works fine for me and means another year or so use of these, invaluable to my mind, plugins.

    Thanks Andy. It does seem very hit and miss as to whether or not they will work though.

    Ah, that could be the photoshop version. I'm using CS6 and they all work fine. With CC it may not be as reliable :-(

    I have several photo apps installed but donít use Nik ... the main issues regarding the new file system relate to configurations with fusion drives where a beta has been installed - the file system was supported on fusion in beta but not (yet) in final. If you have not previously installed a beta version of macOS then you should be fine.
