If you're like me, and you're finding yourself so frustrated with Fresco's palm-fueled Undo antics that you're in danger of throwing your iPad across the room, then give this a try. 

 

I've found that, much of the time, Undo gets triggered by slow placement of your hand on the surface of the tablet. It seems to read each different part of your hand as a separate touch, and two of those in quick succession will trigger an undo. If you put your hand down quickly, and with commitment, Fresco will usually ignore it. There are two problems with this: one, it's something you have to think about, which takes you out of your work, and two, it's not always successful. Earlier today, I put my hand down to start drawing and Fresco immediately undid 13 previous steps! Fortunately, I noticed before my Pencil touched the surface, so I didn't lose all those. In general, I figure that I have to re-draw about a third of the lines that I make in Fresco, because of its maddeningly bad palm rejection.

 

Anyway, give this a try if it's driving you bananas.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. You have shared a great observation. I am sure it'll help.

Many users have supported the idea to be able to turn off the Undo gesture. You may also upvote and comment on the Adobe Fresco UserVoice link https://adobefresco.uservoice.com/forums/919786-adobe-fresco/suggestions/38347963-enable-to-turn-off...

This is the best way of communicating with the Engineering and Product Management teams regarding issues and suggestions so they can be implemented in future releases. 

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

Just be patient.  The Fresco crew is definitely paying attention to feedback.

Are they? Because it's now April 2021 and nothing has changed! Love this app but the palm issue is infuriating.

Undo is a tape with two fingers..... It's usable for me.

Draw with fingers is disabled in parameters, and this is ok for me.
