Selection tool with little finger touching screen

Recommended Posts

Have noticed this issue on several occasions.

selection tool when finger touches the screen will highlight a narrow strip from pencil to finger touch.

Hey p_mac,

I'm struggling to reproduce this and I've tried toggling 'Touch for Gestures only' but it makes no difference! I use my little finger as a pivot a lot of the time when painting/selecting and I've never noticed it :(

Hi Chris B thanks for your reply.

Tried to post a video but wouldn’t upload.

This situation happens often with me but is is random. It doesn’t occur when I use my finger as a brace but rather with a soft touch.   

I didn’t have the touch for gestures on so doesn’t show the contact on vid so won’t do to demonstrate. 

Will stay alert to this as it is annoying for me.

Still am not able to upload the video but here is the number of times this happened in ~ 2 minutes.

I was laid my little finger on the screen so there was not a pinpoint touch   The touch gestures did not pick this up.

Still unable to upload the video.   Will try again in a few minutes.

I went back and looked at the video that the screen shot above is from.  In each case, the touch gesture did show where my finger was.  It looks like what was happening was that I touch the screen first with my finger and then when the Pencil touched, it drew a selection channel from my finger touch to the Pencil touch.   I thought that was not supposed to happen, but that seems to be what was happening.   

It is unfortunate that I cannot upload the video.  I have a very slow internet connect, too cheap to pay enormous fees for faster speeds, so maybe that is the reason I can’t upload, even tried on my iMac, nada.

Anyway, went into the AP setting and turned on the “touch for gestures only” and the issue seems to be resolved.  Is this a work around or is that the expect behaviour?

I was able to reproduce it using this method but only using the Apple Pencil. I cannot repo it with my fingers.

I can repo it with Touch for Gestures on as well... This doesn't feel right so I'll query it with the developers.
