Actually, this is a request I'm seeing a lot lately. And when I see it frequently, the product team sees it frequently. I can tell you this much... How to incorporate a toggle to ignore fingers when using a stylus is being seriously discussed by the drawing teams. I can't give you any more information than that, but it's pretty safe to say that it will surely make it to the app(s).
About brush customization and other paid features: I honestly don't know what the plans are for those features that we're calling out as possible paid features but I'll definitely share your concerns/comments with the team.
Hope that helps a bit.Thanks for posting.
Hi Sue, any update on this? I annotate PDFs with Acrobat for several hours every day and this drives me crazy...
Are you using Pencil on an iPad Pro? If you are, there are preference settings for fingers/Pencil in Sketch and Draw. To access it:
In the lower navigation tap the Settings icon
From the menu that opens choose Preferences.
Scroll down to Apple Pencil Settings.
You can choose there how you'd like the app to recognize finger touches (the settings will not go into effect until at least one stroke has been made with Pencil).
Although, it sounds like you're using Acrobat... I don't know if there are Pencil settings in that.
Does that help though?
