Hi Giovanni… short answer: yes. But more importantly, I would like to do be able to do the hover gesture with a single finger. To move my finger around the screen and have the cursor follow it. In order to do this, I would need to be able to disable Astropad Studio’s current behavior of prompting me if I want to enable finger mode when I touch the screen with my finger. Since I use an Apple Pencil, I never want to use single finger mode for drawing on the host screen. Yes, I use a finger (and/or the pencil) on the Astropad buttons and controls, but not on the drawing screen.
I would use this anywhere I currently use a two-finger gesture for hover: to reposition my cursor so I may better see a brush size adjustment. To hover over a (host) tool icon or link to see its hover help popup. But it is clumsy to hold down two fingers and then move the cursor with the pencil to trigger the popup. Why not accept the idea that if I want to draw or click, I use the pencil, as I do now, but if I want to move my cursor around without clicking or drawing anything (ie hover), I use my single finger? I understand I sacrifice (disable) the option of using “single finger mode” in Astropad Studio. I’m ok with that.
It seems a simple concept in my mind, but I know it’s kind of a different philosophy from what Astropad (Standard) was founded on (that touching the screen is the interaction) but since we now have Astropad Studio and dedicated styluses, the simple finger touch operation can be just a host cursor move. That to me would be the most ergonomic and simple implementation of “hover” yet.
I do like the two finger scrolling that works today in Astropad Studio, so I would not want to mess with that gesture. I don’t see how single finger hover would interfere, it should be easily distinguishable.
