Open the Pen/Rubber Settings in Desktop Mode is difficult

Message par mtl » 02 mai 2018, 16:55

Hi Team,

I'm using OpenBoard under a 86inch Whiteboard an have some difficulties to open the Settings menue of Pen, Rubber or Highlighter in Touch Mode. Even with this big touch screen the active area arround the arrow is too small. Mostly I need 4 to 5 attempts with my finger to open the settings. Increasing the active area would help a lot.

Regards

Hello,

We are aware of the problem. For us it is currently a matter of financial means, it will be improved as soon as we can.

However, you can make a long click on the item whose menu you want to appear. This is the same as clicking on the small arrow.

I'm working with a 84inch interactive Whiteboard and a long click opens the mouse-right-button-menue. Even if I turn off this function the pen menue doesn't appear. The long click works only with the standard mouse but not with touch screen.

Perhaps you could make the settings menu also appear when a right click occurs. This would seem to solve the problem for touchscreen users, at least on Windows.
