Put the controls back where they were.
The controls for publishing or returning to my work are at the top of the page. They make it annoying when my pencil hits them instead of the coloring I was doing. Can we put them back in a corner like they were before?
Thanks for the feedback! We’ve had a chance to review, and the majority of users are happy with the current UI and where the toolbar and controls are. We’re going to keep the interface as-is for now, but truly appreciate your suggestion.

The three controls at the top are in the way on every picture! In addition, if I try to move thru the palettes using the controls at the bottom of the screen, the software changes the color under the directional pointer to the selected color within the palette I scrolled thru. ALL CONTROLS need to be outside of the coloring area!!!
Yes, please move the controls for saving or going back to "my work" to the left corner. I too keep hitting those control while working...very annoying.
The controls are currently in an extremely inconvenient spot.
Love the app and am a daily user. The location of the controls at the top are directly inside the coloring area. Part of the attraction of Pigment, at least for me, is the experience of getting lost in the act of coloring, exploring the tools, etc. Can’t tell you how many times I’m happily coloring and suddenly, I’ve accidentally hit one of the buttons and boom —> the happy-coloring-spell is broken.
Please put them somewhere else. Thank you so much!

Yes, please fix the locations of the controls. I downloaded the updated abs as soon as I opened the app, I saw where the controls were and I immediately deleted the app. Such a shame.
I agree the new location is annoying. I use the 9.7” iPad. Maybe it’s not a problem on the larger screen. A workaround is coloring with the image in portrait mode but I much prefer landscape.
As a regular (almost daily!) user, I have hit these controls (annoying when you’re in the middle of something and you suddenly get bounced back to your library page) OR, tried to colour near there and have to physically move your picture away from the controls before you can continue. I do understand that aesthetically it looks nicer to have them in the middle, but I’ve probably hit them about a dozen times since they were changed. If it’s happening to me I’m sure it’s happening to others as well (perhaps even staff who also colour?). Or maybe if there is a particular reason why they have to be there, this could be explained. Or perhaps be given a choice of where they are positioned, like the other controls that can be on the left or right hand side. Thank you.
Why would you move the book/publish feature buttons to the middle of the app so that it’s constantly in the way of coloring, Please move it Back or out of the way of the artwork you’re trying to color. I keep hitting the ‘checkmark’ to publish when I’m still coloring. Kinda annoying.

Agreed, I keep hitting these as well.
They are ALL KINDS OF in the way now🥰
