Paint tool- stop color picker

Recommended Posts

I've just started using Affinity for ipad and am impressed!!!

One of my uses is to take my ipad out to various residential properties to create fire fighting pre-plans by sketching on top of property images captured by Google Earth.

I use a small selection of colors to indicate the degree of danger- red for hydro lines, gas, propane tanks- yellow for less dangerous obstacles like fences and heavy bush etc...

The paint tool way too often decides to switch to the color picker mode right when I'm carefully starting to place my colored line. Please is there a way to shut the auto picker off?

Thanks

Hi Btate,

The gesture for colour picker is tap and hold then drag unfortunately there is no way to turn this off. If you have one you could use an Apple Pencil then select Touch for Gestures Only in the apps preferences.

Thanks

Thanks Callum. That’s an unfortunate behaviour but I understand.  

My fire plans also use about 40 layers and a similar gesture when moving objects will move unintended layers and can easily misalign all my work. 

Hopefully a preference panel will be added soon where we can customize these settings.  Then Affinity would be 100% perfect!
