Stylus Moving Canvas Around as if hand tool

Recommended Posts

I just purchased Affinity Photo for windows and cant wait to get started drawing.  I noticed as soon as I hover over the screen with the stylus it acts like the hand tool dragging the canvas all over the place.  Is there an area I need to configure settings to stop this from happing?

Hi Bri-Idea,

Welcome to the forums :)
As @v_kyr has mentioned, the hand tool is the default when opening the app or creating a new document and unfortunately this cannot be changed currently, you will need to manually change to your preferred method of drawing. It has however been previously requested as a feature, please see:
