    Hi, the title is quite self explanatory, I was wondering if there was a way to connect my iPad so that I can use it to draw within Adobe Flash Pro on my laptop. I couldn't find any answer online as to if there is a way to do this, but you'd think with a product of such quality as the iPad that you could. Thanks in advance for your help.

    I myself am a windows user - this may be helpful though, I'll look into it, thanks! Any other suggestions welcome (especially if they're free) aha.

    May as well close this post: at this moment in time, Air Display 3 doesn't support Windows, though 2 does. When you go to two, it says they're about to discontinue it and to get 3 xD There are unofficial apps, but after trying free trials of them, they seem very slow and unresponsive. It will probably be better to just buy a cheap drawing tablet online (I'd suggest eBay) around the same price as the app - it works better as it was designed just for that. Thanks anyway!

    Sorry to hear that. I'd probably go the same route; unless I could afford a Wacom Cintiq (sigh).

    What drawing I do on the iPad I prefer to do with iPad apps. If I remember right Adobe has a several iOS apps, some that let you sync projects/drawings. Nothing for Adobe Flash, of course, since iOS doesn't support it.
