undo two fingers works, do again three fingers doesn‘t

Recommended Posts


the gesture „undo“ tap with two fingers works fine on my iPad Pro 9,7“ but the gesture „do again“ tap with three fingers doesn‘t work. 

On my husband´s iPad Pro 12“ everything is fine. 

My small iPad has iOS 12.0.1

I tried to remove and reinstall Affinity Designer again but same problem on the smaller iPad Pro again.

Thanks for any idea what´s wrong

Hi Nicole vS,

Welcome to the forums.

Three finger gesture is working for me also on my iPad 12.9 running iOS 12. Could you try turning on Show Touches in the Preferences menu and see if it registers when you try using three fingers to redo. I'll also test using a smaller iPad when I'm back in the office on Monday.

Hi Lee,

thanks for your response.

I turned on Show Touches and on my small iPad Pro are shown two fingertips when I undo. When I tip with three fingers not any blue point is there.

Four fingers work...4 blue points.  Crazy...:35_thinking:

On the 12“ iPad everything is fine, two, three or even four blue points. 

The only difference is iOS. On the smaller iPad is iOS 12.0.1, the larger one still works with iOS 12.0. 

Tomorrow we are going to update the large iPad and try again. 

I will let you know then if there is a difference on the larger iPad then.

Works for me on iOS 12.0.1 on a 9.7 inch iPad Air 2

Admittedly, it is a bit harder than a two finger tap (my fat fingers probably) but it does work.

If it continues to be a problem, why not put the Undo and Redo buttons on screen


It’s not as if Redo is used a lot. Or is it?

In Preferences > Interface > Show Undo and Redo buttons 


Windows PCs. Photo and Designer, latest non-beta versions.
