Ghost finger function - for designers using one hand or with RSI

Recommended Posts

Hi fellas,

I am suggesting the creation of a feature that allows designers to use the Apple pencil to emulate finger gestures when they are unable to use both hands, either because they are holding the tablet or are suffering from repetitive strain injury.

This feature works by tapping the amount of "ghost fingers" to emulate in the ghost finger button (where the stylus is pointing). As you tap the Ghost button, blue circles named Finger 1, 2, etc appear on the screen and a tooltip hints what gestures are available. The artist then can use the pencil to manipulate the object or canvas as if their fingers were on the screen:
