Default Lefty trying to use ATG

Any suggestions for using the ATG with left hand. The ATG seems to be "righty friendly". Is this just me or is there and adjustment I need to make? Thanks

I'm left handed and I can use it just fine. It did feel awkward at first, but I think that is true for a lot of people in general. I love it!

I'm also a lefty and had a little trouble at first. I think there's just a slight learning curve...keep trying and just go slowly until you get the hang of it.

I'm left handed and I use it with my right hand. However, I have adapted myself to use mostly all tools except for eating and writing with my right hand. I put my watch on my right arm as well. Try teaching yourself to do more with your right hand, especially eating and writing. I work in a hospital and I see so many people who had something happen to their main limb and then they can't function. Practice, Practice, Practice until you get comfortable. Just my humble opinion. Be blessed!!!

I'm a lefty as well. Sometimes I find that starting it on the right side of the card stock helps as you can see the line of tape being put down and the edge of the card stock at the same time (hope that makes sense).

it's just a matter of getting used to it, I believe, also. Soon it will be your sidekick
