ANDROID version suggestions, S-pen/Wacom pen controls

Post by TVPUSER » 02 Feb 2021, 12:10

Hi I recently used the android edition of TVPaint and I am very impressed with how well it works with samsung tablets so far.
Right now TVPaint feels very close to the desktop version which is fine by me! I think there needs to be a little more control for the pen button functions available for the tablets that use wacom technologies.

I was trying out Infinite Painter and I was really impressed with how much control you had over the pen functons inside the software.
I've atatched images to show what I mean

Note that there is even the option to change more than one pen button which refers to the myriad of styluses that work with the wacom EMR Digitizer, a welcome feature!
-------------
There is even global control over 3 pen curve options, Not super needed because you can already individually change the curves on individual brushes but I think it may still be useful, but not essential.

-------------
The ability to hide the navigation bar is also useful; using a swipe up gesture to bring it back temporarily, again not essential but would be welcome!

The last suggestion would really help with a screen like mines, my tablet screen is 11 inches at 2560x1600
The resolution scaling options are not very granular. Resolution scaling 1 makes everything too small.. Resolution scaling 2 makes everything too big!
I think the option of going in half increments would really help with many of these android tablets as they tend to be high resolution small screens.

Thanks for reading this long post, these are the major things I think will drastically improve the usability of the android version of TVPaint, I know the demographic using this version is small so I hope you guys have time to work on these quality of life features still! :oops:
