When using Apple Pencil on iPad, to markup PDF documents, it would be helpful to have a toggle to disable any kind of finger drawing. This way I can use fingers to scroll through the document.

Hi @f13c53,

 

Hope you are doing well. Thank you for writing in.

 

The app is designed to have scrolling with two fingers when you are in annotation mode, whether using Apple Pencil or hand drawing.

Thanks. But I still end up accidentally drawing with the finger. So I think it would be useful to completely disable finger drawing when the Pencil is active.

I think it's worth noting that most users also use other apps which have single finger scrolling, so its instinct and hard to change. Also when holding a pencil between my fingers i can't easily put both fingers together on screen to scroll meaning i need both hands, meaning I can't work on it while standing without a desk.

Hi @Carter287079807w44,

 

Thanks for writing in!

 

With the newer versions of iPadOS, accidental touch detection on iPads have been minimized by Apple.

 

Do you still experience the issue? Last time I had this discussion with the dev team, it was Apple's OS, which prevents the iPad from recognizing finger touches, rather than Acrobat Reader Mobile.
