Toggle painting with touch when using touchscreen+stylus

Recommended Posts

On devices with a touchscreen and stylus, touching with a single finger will still paint on the canvas. This makes it easy to accidentally leave marks behind when attempting to use two fingers to pinch-to-zoom or pan around, as well as when resting the palm on the screen to draw.

 

It would be great if the behaviour of a single-finger touch could be customised to do something more useful when a stylus is in use, such as to simply pan around the canvas, or to paint using a different tool (for blurring/smudging). Disabling touch isn’t really a solution because that prevents the use of the two-finger gestures.

Seriously, this is the biggest thing keeping me from making Affinity Designer my primary tool right now. Disabling single-finger touch when a stylus is present would work, but making this configurable would be excellent.

Totally agree, this kills the experience on touch/pen devices. The app must distinguish touches from pen clicks as many other apps do. 

There also must be rotation by fingers feature
