one finger canvas panning (on microsoft surface)

Recommended Posts

I am currently in the exploration phase of affinity designer for windows so sorry if this question is allready asked.


I am using this on my surface 3 and pinch and zoom works great while painting, but when swiping around with one finger, the program is registering it as mouse input, is there a way to make panning the canvas with one finger possible, I checked the preferences menu and searched the forum but I haven't found a solution yet.


I know it is possible with 2 fingers, but it is not always that accurate and sometimes, pinch and zoom registers a brush stroke (mouse input) as well, which is really anoying.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums :)


I don't know for sure, but I doubt it, as pan swipe is not something that I have seen mentioned before. Perhaps someone else can confirm one way or another
