Redo (three finger tap) no longer working?

Recommended Posts

Not working for me.  

I have checked affinity photo settings, and noticed two finger tap & three finger tap options are no longer in there, if I recall correctly, they use to be there prior to 1.10.1?


Some issues I have stumbled upon:

1. Three finger tap no longer executes redo. Instead, the redo and undo buttons appear above screen when I three finger:3231673E-D133-4021-A9AE-1A4100739991.thumb.jpeg.67b313e0faa611c087376efdd48f54a6.jpeg



2. When I tap the on screen, undo & redo buttons - nothing happens:3231673E-D133-4021-A9AE-1A4100739991.thumb.jpeg.67b313e0faa611c087376efdd48f54a6.jpeg



3. I even disabled the toggle for “show redo, undo buttons” to see if this somehow brought back the three finger tap functionality, which it didn’t and the buttons still appeared above screen even though i disabled the toggle: 133A84DD-5D45-4A31-9308-955FEB9D9287.thumb.jpeg.5bec697766535701900968cab4851869.jpeg


4. I even checked the iPad settings directly to see if serif placed the options in there (some games do that now) nothing is there: 



Is this a issue known?

or did Serif remove the three finger tap redo feature outright for 1.10.1?


 Troubleshooting I have tried:

  • closed out the app and re-launched
  • rebooted my ipad
  • running ipad os 15
  • running affinity photo 1.10.1


  • iPad Pro 12.9 (2020 Model

It's an issue with some changes that Apple made in iPadOS 15. Serif knows about it (see other topics).

It’s already been fixed in the current beta version. 😁

I cannot update my OP otherwise I would had put solved in the title, but @DM1 is correct. It’s in beta now:

I would not start to call it a day if it’s presumably solved in a beta. Happened more than once that a bug fix or feature didn’t make it into later betas or retail.

Never the less, a very good sign to see a beta which solved an issue.
