Hmmm, can I use an old Wacom tablet with Mojave?

For some things I'll be doing tomorrow, it would be very useful for me to be able to draw things freeform on the screen. Ordinarily I'd think of using Preview for this, but I find it very hard to draw using the trackpad.

Anyone know if the Wacom tablets are still supported? I have one of the older/cheaper blue/white ones sitting around, collecting dust... I want to say it's a Graphire?

I have an Intuos PTK-640 that works with Mojave. I don't use all its bells and whistles but I assume they work too. Don't know about the one you have.

Depending on what you are set to do, you may consider giving a vector, freehand sort of app a shot.
I’d try pages.app in a whim.

I've got a Wacom Bamboo that's working just fine. No idea how old it is.

Well if anyone is reading this ... incredible, but the most recent set of drivers from Wacom seems to work perfectly under Mojave. I'm frankly stunned because the drivers date from 2010 (are meant for OS 10.6-10.8), and get horrid reviews on the download sites.

I’ve got a small ADB version that you can have for shipping, if you want to play the compatibility game at its highest level.
I’d be happy to pack it up for you next time I dig into our storage locker.

Thanks, but no need now that I have the USB version working... I do wish the tablet were a bit larger though...
