Apple Pencil 2's touch button on Affinity Photo iPad

Recommended Posts

Hi to all!

I'm wondering if hidden somewhere there is a menu where to turn on and set up the touch button of the Apple Pencil 2.

If not, is there any chance to add this feature in future releases?

Hi bilboudo :)

The button and it's functionality are on by default, and currently have no option to turn this off - or customise the action - but we hope to add this into a future version.

Below is the expected functionality of using the Apple Pencil 2 in Affinity apps, I hope this helps!

Photo -

With the Paint Brush selected, double tapping switches between the Eraser and the Paint Brush.
Double tapping will commit all filters (Including Develop in the Develop Persona).


Designer – 
Vector Persona: With the Pen, Pencil or Vector Brush Tool selected, double tapping switches between the Node tool and whichever of the previous tool was selected.
Pixel Persona – Same as Photo, see above.

the ability to customize this would be awesome! I would personally love to be able to use the double tap function to switch between color swatches - for example, when masking, it would be helpful to quickly switch between black and white by double tapping the pencil.
