Allow mouse access from iPadOS


When attempting to log into Composer Pro from Firefox or Chrome on IPadOS a message states touch based devices are not able to access the Composer for understandable reasons.

The new iPadOS has mouse support and I have a Bluetooth mouse to work with my iPad that provides full mouse functionality with a mouse pointer.

Would it be possible to enable iPad based browsers to access Composer Pro?

I haven’t tried to change my user agent yet but I thought I’d register it. Composer Pro sis great so far.

Happy to be a guinea pig tester!

That’s a very fair point, didn’t think of that use case – though changing the user agent should work for now.

I guess the same point applies to Android devices with a mouse connected.

Thank you! Once I’m able to figure out how to install an extension in Firefox on iPad to change the user agent, I’ll share here.

Just FYI - I’m able to access Composer from my iPad + bluetooth mouse on iPadOS Safari.

Hi Wayne, How’s the performance? Will we miss any feature or convenience? We’re you successfully able to do everything using the iPad?

Am planning to get an ipad 6/7 th gen. Would that work? Do I need a mouse or can I use touch or pencil?
