5 Finger Gesture on iPad

Recommended Posts

Using 5 fingers to minimize the Affinity photo on iPad doesn’t work. Instead of showing the home screen, it just zoom out the photo. Is it normal?

It does work, but it can be finicky, at least on my Gen 6 iPad -- you have to quickly pinch on the screen with all your fingers hitting it at very nearly the same time. The end of this Apple video shows how to do it.

BTW, there is a dedicated sub-forum for iPad questions here.


Affinity Photo 1.8.3, Affinity Designer 1.8.3, Affinity Publisher 1.8.3; macOS Mojave 10.14.6 iMac (27-inch, Late 2012); 2.9GHz i5 CPU; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M; 8GB RAM

That seems like more trouble than it’s worth! I just press the ‘Home’ button.

Hi kingbee!

This feature is available in Affinity Photo iPad, however it can be a little tricky, as @R C-R has mentioned, hopefully the Apple tutorial provided may help.

I have also moved this thread to our dedicated iPad section to help other users in the future :)
