Fullscreen doesn't happen for long + one other bug

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

The full-screen option on Affinity Designer for iPad is almost completely broken on the iPad pro. Using my smaller 11" iPad pro, according to a user in this previous report of the bug, my palm is micro-triggering the iPad home menu bar, which causes fullscreen mode to be toggled off.

On another note, sometimes I'll be drawing and the context toolbar for brushes will not use palm rejection and random settings will be toggled on (I frequently inadvertently toggle on the "wet edges" setting) It would be quite useful for me if this context bar could be toggled to move to the top of the screen or the left of the screen.

Hi heartstonks,

I think the issue linked was slightly different (Photo and Designer had different behaviour with that UI button which has since been changed). I can reproduce the issue just by sliding my palm sideways. I'll get this passed on to development.

Have you considered trying a drawing glove to stop your palm triggering other options at all?

EDIT: You can actually disable 'Automatically Hide UI in Preferences > Interface and this should stop the interface from re-appearing when your palm hits the screen.

Oh wow, disabling the "automatically Hide UI in preferences" seems to have helped stop the UI randomly re-appearing! This looks like a bug that could definitely be resolved by an additional boolean toggle under the hood (e.g. did the user trigger this fullscreen? if yes, don't bring back in the tools until they slide in).

I've attempted to get a drawing glove from my local art stores but they don't have any...

 

Thank you for your help!
