Where is the Windows 7 Multitouch Support?
I have a Lenovo x220 tablet that has a multigesture trackpad with minimal support, and a 2 point touch screen that I cannot zoom, pan, or rotate with?

... is there any plan for supporting these type of computers? The technical advancements of these style TabletPCs are the most natural for artists.

First off: which applications are you using?

I'm running-

Photoshop CS 5.1
Running WIndows 7 (Service Pack 1)

The Laptop is a Lenovo x220 tablet with an active Wacom penabled digitizer, and a 2 point multitouch screen. I'm under the impression the screen is also developed by Wacom, though regardless it is running Windows 7 Multitouch style drivers.

On a Wacom Bamboo Touch, are panning, zoom, and rotation supported?
If so, this hardware should be very much capable of it- however I'd guess Photoshop is searching only for MacBook Pro touchpads, or Wacom Bamboo Touch series.

That covers two very popular products- but leaves out a huge portion of the interface devices out there.

There's no need to bump things here. You asked for the feature, and other users can vote on it or add to the discussion.

I had asked if the feature was in the works, and you had earlier responded with a question that I had answered but met no response.

If Windows 7 Multitouch will not be supported, it may be a technology not worth investing in for hardware- or could simply be driver support issues as the software seemingly works with Apple and Wacom products soley for multitouch as of right now.

Unfortunately there are mixed sets of information out there on what works with PS CS4+ and what does not.

Sometimes we can tell you things, but most of the time we can't tell you until products are announced.
