Turn the dropper tool on left menu bar into a tap and hold toggle

Recommended Posts

Hi Great work on affinity Designer or iPad. I had one suggestion I noticed when using the dropper gesture, It’s way too easy to accidentally toggle droppper selector when you’re trying to zoom in or out on your image.

My suggestion is rather than having to switch tools from whatever you’re working on to the dropper tool on left lower menu bar, selecting your color, then continuing to switch to whatever tools you were working on, why not make the dropper tool a tap-and-hold-to-toggle. You press Your finger on it, select your color, then release. This way there is no unnecessary switching or using a rather error prone gesture.

I personally like the drag and drop gesture, it feels quick and instant, but it also works well in procreate as a tap and hold gesture. Procreate makes it a finger only gesture, doesnt work with the pencil, and though it works really well, it feels a bit clumsy sometimes cuz your finger isn't a precise pointing tool, and the second of holding feels like a speedbump when youre in the groove. I dunno, it'd prolly be worth experimenting with, but i like the current drag method.
