Pressure Sensitivity Adjustment Slider for Desktop Mac + Sidecar

Recommended Posts

Apple doesn't let you tweak the pressure curve on pencil because they make it a states rights issue and leave it to developers to implement. Fair play. However, the default pressure sensitivity really sucks, and may encourage people to damage their iPads by drawing too hard. The default setting needs to be about 8x as sensitive, but there is no way to adjust this now. We really need a pressure sensitivity adjustment slider for the desktop version.

I'm also having this problem. The sensitivity in affinity designer for the iPad in sidecar mode is awful. There needs to be an easy way to globally adjust this. I have both the Mac and iPad version of Designer and the iPad version works fine. 

If there is a fix for this, please let me know.

OK, so it's not just me.  I've been tentatively trying to use Pencil with the desktop version of Affinity Designer through Sidecar and thought it just plain didn't work - until I discovered that pressing much harder than I feel should be necessary had an effect.

So +1 for this feature.  The ability to use Pencil through Sidecar is a big attraction and right now it's not really usable as you need to push far too hard to register anything.  Unless I'm doing something wrong, in which case please enlighten me...

I am having this problem too with Sidecar.  For most brushes the resulting stroke on the iPad is very faint.  There is something wrong with the pressure sensitivity.  I feel I would damage my iPad if I tried to press hard.

Bump. This is a very serious issue for anyone who wants to use the Mac version with Sidecar. I hope that this simple modification (a global pressure setting) gets implemented very soon!
