Is there a way to disable finger to screen input on illustrator? I have a stylus, and with other drawing software, you can set it so that your hand doesn’t draw on the screen, only your stylus, so you can rest your hand on the screen when you draw. Is there a comparable setting in illustrator?

Are you talking about Illustrator or Adobe Draw (the mobile app)?

Hi Jones,

 

Thanks for reaching out. As Monika said, we are not sure if you are talking about Adobe Illustrator (Desktop app) or Adobe Draw (Mobile app), however, we do not have this setting in any of these applications.

This definitely sounds like a good feature hence I will forward this to our product team and you can do that too by sharing it here https://illustrator.uservoice.com/

For Adobe Draw, there is an option to share feedback under the main menu (three lines on top left corner of the screen).

How is this not available in Illustrator yet? Photoshop has had this for quite some time.

Where exactly?
I also have the issue that Illustrator sees my finger as a pen and ruining everything I'm working on. I use a Surface Book and have the latest version of Illustrator and can't find the option to disable or enable any of it.

Monika probably means Photoshop. Photoshop has all the features we need in Illustrator, like disable finger input, rotate canvas and roatate with device orientation so we can draw in portrait mode... but the AI devs don't consider anybody actually wanting to draw with Illustrator.

No. Monika doesn't mean Photoshop. Monika means Illustrator on the iPad, because this sub-thread is talking about Illustrator on the iPad.

Silly me. The main thread is talking about Illustrator desktop app. Surface is mentioned in this subthread as well. 

 

But so nice to see Adobe has this feature on the new half-baked iPad app but can't figure out or be bothered to add it to the full version people use on tablet computers.

 

So, why can't we get this feature on the desktop version Monika? I'm hoping you can make me look silly once again and show me where it exists in the desktop app.

On the desktop you have to rely on the hardware doing that. i.e. options on the Microsoft Surface, or the Wacom or whatever.

 

Or you use one of those gloves as most professional illustrators do.

 

The question is whether Illustrator has any access to this at all or if it needs to be done at system or tablet driver level. I don't know that.

Here's my problem, Adobe Photoshop can do it on the Surface Pro, but Illustrator cannot. It is capable. The devs choose not to implement it. Why? I wish they would speak up.
