“touch for gestures only” feature doesn’t work with “erase brush” tool

Recommended Posts

Hey, I have problems with “touch for gestures only” feature. It doesn’t work with “erase brush” tool.

  • affinity photo application version -
  • iPad Pro 11 (2018)
  • iOS 12.1.1

How to reproduce:

  1. navigate to preferences
  2. go to “tools” tab
  3. turn on “touch for gestures only” feature
  4. open any photo ( .raw ) in “Photo Persona”
  5. add new Exposure Adjustment layer (-1 step)
  6. choose Erase Brush
  7. swipe on screen

Actual results: Erase Brash works if you touching screen using Apple Pencil or finger

Expected results: Erase Brush should works when you touching screen using Apple Pencil only.

Unfortunately this is by design I.e what is intended to happen. There has been many requests by users asking that touch for gestures be changed to allow only gestures. Hopefully devs will listen to users.

Hi Anton-B,

Unfortunately this was changed intentionally, but has proven to be an annoying issues for many customers (I personally never liked the change). It is with development to who want to make this option a bit more flexible. I'll pass your feed back onto them!

Thanks for letting us know.
