Anybody has any recommendations on accurate Mouse/Pen for drawing with Camtasia on Windows 10? 

I have the Camtasia drawing tool, but surely enough it looks terrible when trying to draw with a regular mouse...  If anybody could recommend a better mouse to use with Camtasia... please let me know...

Thank you much!!

A mouse is a lousy thing to draw with for a lot of reasons.
If you  set the DPI level of the mouse very low. Then do you drawing over a vey large area of tabletop or desk you can achieve a smoother result.
Aside from that, a Wacom or similar tablet will work much better.

Is there still a pen/mouse that I can try to control the Camtasia drawing tool?  I might need to draw/write on top of existing figures... and not sure if Wacom can do that anyway... Camtasia drawing tool would be ideal if I could fin a way to have a more accurate control of it... 

To be honest I tried a wacom tablet before returning it.... It was a frustrating experience to try to use the pen and make it do what I wanted on selecting colors and zises... plus you had to hold the pen at a certain distance from the tablet to know where was your next line...  I found it kind of inconvenient and unnatural to be trying to draw / write that way...  the alternative was a more expensive tablet from where you can see the actual writing on the tablet screen, and that might still not do what I want to draw on top of an existing figure and record it on the screen....

At this point I am looking for a much less expensive Mouse/Pen to control the Camtasia drawing tool... it would do what I want if I could only control it as a pen in my hand.

Wacom all the way. I'm using an older Wacom Intuos and it's perfect for when I need to get in close on stuff in Photoshop/etc. Haven't used it for Camtasia yet, but cannot imagine it won't be just fine.
