In theory, a mouse has no pressure information. A mouse button is either "on" (button down), or "off" (button up). The Corel Painter Mouse controls let you simulate the following stylus settings: Pressure (how hard you would be pressing with a stylus), Tilt (how close to vertical the stylus is held), Bearing (the compass direction in which the stylus is pointing), and Wheel (how much ink is sprayed).
You can record and save brush strokes created with a stylus and then have Corel Painter use the saved settings for the stroke when you switch to a mouse. Refer to "Recording and Playing Back Strokes" on page 161 for more information about using saved brush strokes to further enhance mouse functionality.
