Mouse scroll wheel zoom support on iPadOS

Recommended Posts

Dear Serif Software 🙂

I travel a lot, and for that I constantly use an iPad Pro 2022 model that gives me maximum freedom to work seriously, professionally and flexibly. And after all, that's what iPad Pro is made for.

When I can work at a desk, I have a mouse connected via a USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter, and I also somewhat redundantly have a Magic Trackpad at my right hand. Still, I really miss being able to zoom with my mice that have scroll wheel, which I can also do on the desktop version.

It's so much more efficient to zoom in and out where you are with the scroll wheel, and when I'm sitting with the mouse in my hand and using it, it's silly not to take advantage of it. 🙂 I use Designer the most for big illustrations and I zoom a lot in and out. A lot. Using my fingers for it is less effective, and when I use the Apple keyboard as well (that is now supported by Affinity v2) reaching for the screen with you hand as well is awkward. 

It's not that the scroll wheel isn't supported by iPadOS, it's supported fine by iPadOS itself, but has no function within Affinity, so I hope you can get it implemented like in the desktop edition. 🙂
