Color picker randomly active when pinching - Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

I noticed when using gesture pinch out/in to zoom out/in sometime the color picker active randomly, this is a problem because it keep changing the color of the brush.

It happened on pixel persona paint brush. It also happened on vector persona but the color not pickup, only showing the picker round magnifier.


* I find a solution to avoid this, by turn on “touch for gestures only”, but I still not understand.

Hi sigmakreuz,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
The colour picker should only appear when you tap and drag using these tools (Paint Brush, Vector Brush tools etc). What's probably happening is that you are performing the pinch in/out gesture starting (touching) with one finger first, rather than the two simultaneously and so the colour picker is accidentally invoked.
