Wacom Tablet issues on Mac
It is very easy to navigate the Xd interface with a magic mouse or touch pad however when I am working with my Wacom (which is often) I loose some of the functionality such as zooming and being able to move around the interface with a 'hand' tool option 'H' like in Illustrator and Photoshop. If one of the artboard falls off the screen/interface, I am unable to simply drag the view to accomodate the artboard. If I am using the Wacom I have to go to the magnification setting in the upper left hand of the interface which is cumbersome. Would it be possible to increase support for Wacom tablets? Thank you.
This is about issues on Mac. For issues with Wacom tablets on Windows, please see:
Please note that the Wacom tablet on Windows only is considered a pen experience, which is not yet supported on the canvas. You should be able to select the tools along the side and interact with XD in the property inspector. We’re working on that particular experience.
However, I’d like to keep this open to be able to talk about what specific issues Mac users are experiencing. Please do add these in the comments!

I liked knhow when will you have support of Wacom Pen Tablets for Adobe XD for Windows 10. I can´t work with the Pen in work area, i can´t draw, and use any tool with a pen of Intuos 4, only mouse, but i liked use the tablet, this is do part of experience. Thank you so much!

Same here. :(
I find that I can't use my Intuos tablet with any of the tools in XD. I can't place or create rectangles, circles, lines, vectors from the pen tool, the type tool, nor can I create artboards/frames.
This is on the new Windows 10 version of XD.
Yes please! I usually only work with a Wacom tablet and this is a huge downside to the usability of such a cool program.
to add to this, the text box typing with Wacom pen doesn't work properly.
STEPS WITH MOUSE
1. create a text box
2. remove hand from mouse, then start typing
RESULT: text appears in box
STEPS WITH WACOM PEN
1. create a text box
2. while pen is still in hand, lift up pen from wacom tablet to begin typing on keyboard
RESULT: text box disappears and is no longer active and no text appears
