  1. Hello, I am wondering if there is any way to pan the canvas with my finger. I have a Microsoft Surface Pro 4, which has a touch screen. I am fluent in Phase One Capture One. Within Capture One you can pan the canvas with your finger. This is a quick and natural gesture, it does not matter what tool is selected and does not require any modification key presses. For clarification, the finger is for panning and the pen or mouse is used for brushing. Does Affinity Photo for Windows 10 offer this feature as I've explained? If not, is there any way I can set it up to do so, or any way I can offer this suggestion to the developers? Thanks.
  2. I am using Windows 10 version 16299.461 on a Microsoft Surface Pro 4. I am attempting to use the brush tool to paint and every so often press the alt key to temporarily switch to the eye-dropper tool to sample some color and then return to the brush tool by releasing the alt key so that I can continue painting with the newly sampled color. This works correctly while using a mouse but does not work at all with the pen (stylus). When I press the alt key and tap with the pen, the color that is picked up is the color directly underneath the mouse pointer (where the mouse/touchpad was last left resting) rather than where the pen is actually tapping. Therefore, I can not ever sample a color while using the stylus. If I can't figure out how to get this to work with Affinity Photo then there is no point in using Affinity Photo. This is a major part of my workflow and I can not use a mouse, that is far too slow and clumsy. Am I missing something? Is there a setting I need to turn on? Or is this a bug? (Edit) I can't even use the eye-dropper with the pen (stylus). Each time I tap the screen with the pen tip the picked color is the one where I last used my laptop touchpad. I was hoping I could alternate between pressing "I" and then tapping a color with my pen and then pressing "b" to begin brushing; repeating as necessary. But I can't do that. It is as if Affinity Photo is ignorant that I am using a pen.
  3. Hello, I am wondering if there is any way to pan the canvas with my finger. I have a Microsoft Surface Pro 4, which has a touch screen. I also use Phase One Capture One and Clip Studio Paint. Within both of these applications you can pan the canvas with your finger without needing to change tools. This is a quick and natural gesture, it does not matter what tool is selected and does not require any modification key presses, nor does it require I remove my pen away from its hover state. For clarification, the finger is for panning and the pen or mouse is used for brushing. Does Affinity Photo for Windows 10 offer this feature as I've explained? Is this a feature being looked into for inclusion? Thanks.
  4. Hello, it has been three months now and we Affinity Photo has now rolled onto stable version 1.6.5.123. Will this issue ever be addressed? Thank you.
  5. Hello, it is now Sept 11th 2018, I have now installed the newly released Affinity Photo 1.6.5.123 and this issue still persist. On June 19th, Chris J said that it was fixed in beta. I imagine that the then beta has by now been rolled into this stable release (1.6.5.123). Yet eye dropper sampling with a pen (surface pro 4 pen) does not work. The problem remains exactly as I had described originally as topic creator.
