Feature Request: Joycon Integration
on: April 08, 2023, 06:02:24 AM
Hey!
Huge fan of the app :)
With the recent Ios 16 update, there is an option to pair Gamepad.
I was wondering if there would be a possibility to add shortcuts based on Gamepad Like here (unfortunately there is no way to remap gamepad buttons to keyboard shortcuts on IPAD)

Thank you for the best painting app on iPad!

Thanks Sylwester!
I love gesture control of the size of the brush, but it would be amazing to keep joycon in my spare hand and switch between tools quicker!

You can give the "8bitdo zero 2" controller a try. It has a "keyboard mode" and thus it's currently the only controller that can work for drawing shortcuts on iPad (as far as I'm aware). It's also small enough to hold in one hand.

Been using it for over an year like that and love it. Really helps to speed up the overall process.😄

Well yes and no 😅 You have to the start the controller in "keyboard mode" and then all of it's buttons get a random letter assigned (you can't choose). But then you can assign those letters to specific shortcuts within the Artstudio Pro preferences

We are working on this now! We use system GameController framework so it should support all popular bluetooth controllers like xbox, playstation, joycon etc

How it will work - you will be able to set any button from controller in Preferences > Interface > Keyboard Shortcuts, like you customize keys from Magic Keyboard.

Thank you Lucky Clan! Would this also mean that one feature would be able to hold multiple shortcuts as well? Like you can use B on keyboard or RT on joycon to activate brush

Beta with game controllers support is available now! Waiting for your feedback. I have tested it only with Joy-Con so please let us know if other controllers works fine.

Just tested with Dualsense and it works nicely! Thanks Lucky Clan!



Hmm, rather not, sorry.

hmm does that means that if we want to use the game controller on the go, we have to rebind the shortcut for game controller. And when we get back home to our workspace and want to use our keyboard, we gotta rebind the said keys with keyboard keys? 🤔
