Feature request: S-Pen support?
#1
I don't know where to post this, so .. I hope it's in the right forum Smile

I was wondering if you'd be open to supporting more of the Samsung S-Pen - it has these 'air gestures' these days, which would actually sortof work to use as a page turn indicator. Or even just supporting the button on it.

Are you looking for support of what Samsung calls "Air Actions"? See this link: https://developer.samsung.com/galaxy/spen-remote

They opened that up to developers so they can receive the events. So it does look like I can support some of the S-Pen remote features. I'll have to think about how to set that up in MobileSheetsPro though. I may have to set up a separate section in the settings dedicated to mapping what the S-Pen actions do. Those settings would be hidden on devices that don't support the S-Pen.

It would be very nice to have something like a quick edit feature with the samsung pen. So you only have to use the pen to make handwritten annotations into the music sheets without need to choose the editing tool.

Yes, I would love that, too.
(And quite a lot of other things currently on Mike's list...)

Yes for Google's Pixel Slate/Pixelbook pen which has button too.

There has to be an SDK in order to register custom stylus events. I don't know much about the Pixel Slate/Pixelbook pen, but if the button is just a key press, you can already map it to actions in MobileSheetsPro. If not, I would need to find a library from Google to receive the button press event.

I keep being amazed by this piece of software... and the developer Smile

Well both Samsung and Google joined Universal Stylus Initiative.

I'd like to chime in: just using the stylus and be able to annote right away would be very cool....

On a sidenote:
I dont know if it is only recently or I just didnt notice earlier: when doing annotations in zoomed view (often necessary) and panning the visible area it happens very often that instead of panning the page is turned... Not only are you thrown out of the loop on your editing but also the undo list is lost... can it be made harder to actually turn the page when in zoomed view? That would be awesome. Thanks

I'll look into that. I enabled swipe gestures with the finger to turn pages, but it should be disabled when panning the visible area. I'm guessing the logic is still firing when zoomed in. Perhaps I need to only allow it when you are fully zoomed out.
