Touch For Gestures Only

Recommended Posts

In AP if you have the “Touch For Gestures Only” option selected in Preferences, does that mean that you can not use a stylus? Thanks.

No, it means kind of the opposite! It’s to prevent users of the Apple Pencil from making unintended marks if they touch the screen with their fingers: when the option is turned off you can draw with your fingers, but when it’s turned on your finger touches are only interpreted as gestures (so you have to use the Apple Pencil if you actually want to draw).
