[API] Inpainting with Apple Pencil leaves permanent red lines

Recommended Posts

V1.6.9.81 - This is not a new problem but has existed since Affinity Photo for iPad was released.

We all know that when using the Inpainting Brush that the area you select is highlighted in red and when you remove your finger/Pencil from the screen that the red area is replaced by the inpainting process. However when using the Pencil I often find red lines have been left unintentionally by my hand and are not removed by the inpainting process. These lines are permanent and can only be removed by using Undo.

It’s easy to recreate. I use my right-hand with the Pencil and start by resting the knuckle of my little finger on the screen. If I then lay the rest of my little finger on the screen I get a red line. Removing my hand at this point would result in the line being replaced by the inpainting process. Normally, however, after the red line has been created by my little finger I would start inpainting with the Pencil and then the unintentional red line becomes permanent. I often don’t notice these red lines under my hand until I finish inpainting and then have to undo all my inpainting to get rid of them.

Enabling or disabling “Touch for gestures only” setting doesn’t make any difference.

I think this is a bug but please let me know if I’m doing something wrong.
Thanks.

Yep, seems buggy here too. Hadn’t,t noticed before as I tend not to rest right hand on screen when using pencil.

Inpainting appears to have been fixed in update 1.6.11.85 however touching screen with fingers still causes inpainting when touch for gestures is active.
