Option to Disable Touch Input on Tools

Recommended Posts

Hello, would it be possible to limit input from tools, specifically the brush tool, to only stylus input? That was we could freely place our hands on the screen, pan, zoom, etc. without the fear of making marks. As it is now, whenever I'm drawing or paining, I have to go back and cleanup marks made by my hand.

A Freudian slip there, perhaps? :P There does currently seem to be a problem with this, at least in the Windows versions of the Affinity apps. :(

Yep, its a pretty common feature. And as for Sketchbook, it's pretty decent software but the billing is one of the reasons I've moved to Affinity. I actually bought Sketchbook a while back, then they went to a subscription model and told me I had to subscribe... kinda rubbed me the wrong way... Then Adobe actually charged me a penalty to cancel my sub. Affinity is amazing and once i've paid I paid! So guys, add this feature, help me love you more :P
