The two-finger tap to Undo was first released in Procreate 3 for
iPad back in 2015, but we actually first developed it for
Procreate Pocket. Undoing an action is one of the most critical
input methods we use today, and we needed a method that wouldn’t
clutter the interface or disrupt the core experience. We went
through dozens of designs until we realised we should treat the
entire screen as the Undo button - resulting in a simple gesture
that could be invoked any time, anywhere.
Two-finger tap to Undo has become one of Procreate’s most
instinctive and essential gestures.
It’s also one of our most-stolen features (over a dozen apps and
counting), and we’re fine with that. In fact, we’re giving it
away. Seriously. We’ve put together a sample project covered by
the Simplified BSD License, which means you can add to or modify
it as you wish.
Whether you’re one of our competitors, or in an entirely different
field, please feel free to grab the project below. Take it, use
it, and give your users the most instinctive Undo and Redo method
I love this attitude.
