Apple Pencil on SAP Design Studio

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hi everyone,

I'm making a dashboard for a costumer and he wants to use it through his iPad Pro using his Apple Pencil. The problem I have is that Apple Pencil only recognizes icons on SAP Design Studio. It does not recognize dropdowns, or charts or texts or panels or any other thing that is not an icon.

Has anyone encountered himself with the same problem? If it is the case, how did you resolved it?

Thanks in advance,

Gerard Riera Puig.

Hi Gerard,

This is interesting!

We certainly support touch gestures and events, for example touching the dropdown brings up a mobile friendly dropdown menu when you use your finger, but we haven't performed any testing for stylus input (Apple Pencil, Surface Pen) etc. One suggestion I would have would be to ensure your dashboards are created using the SAP M library as this has better functionality and support on mobile devices. M does not stand for mobile by the way but it generally has better support. Maybe you could quickly open up Design Studio, and on creation of a new template choose SAP UI5 M and test this?

Please do add stylus input for mobile devices to our ideas place @ https://ideas.sap.com/SBODesignStudio

Thanks,

Conor

Hi Gerard Riera,

do you receive any failure message, e.g. Java?

Hi Christian Lorenz,

No, it just doesn't recognize what it's clicking, nothing else.

Hi Gerard,

did you use the Safari Browser or the SAP BI Mobile App to execute the reporting?

Hi Christian Lorenz,

I'm using the SAP BI Mobile App and the iOS version is the latest (10.2).
