The “draw signature” flow function does not stretch over the full available space in landscape. Instead it uses the dimensions like in portrait orientation.
This results in a poor UX, because the space is just too small to write a full name. Please have a look on the pictures below: the name ‘Alan Turing’ is already too long for the canvas. And there are much longer names out there, just think of someone who signs as Meriadoc Brandybuck…
Hi! Nothing specific to help your current situation, but we are beginning a go-through of our components and flow functions soon, and this will include updates and improvements to the signature flow function as well – as far as I understand, the current signature plugin is locked into the portrait width on iOS because of some problem with layouting that was previously (no clue because I haven’t looked into that) but Android expands more nicely.
@stayfoolish Drop the flow component onto the logic canvas, then after selecting the Draw Signature function press ‘Enter’ > you will see ‘Edit subflow template’ > select the ‘JS Draw signature’ function then press ‘Enter’ to open the node and view the underlying code.
Unfortunately it looks like that’s going to be some time longer Almost all the view components have been gone through (it’ll take some versions for the changes to be released) but it seems like there’s additional enabling development required from another team before flow functions can be worked on
Not as of yet, the enablement of the flow function development was pushed back over the major rewrite of our plugin structure, but it’s under work again as far as I know. And when that is available it’ll still be a while of course, since we have to do the change and have it released in a version of the Preview App first etc.
Hi @Mevi ,
in the “monthly update for May-June” you are mentioning, that Flow function improvements have now been unblocked, and work on them is starting.
Does it mean that the ‘draw signature’ flow function is about to be adjusted now?
@stayfoolish after the vacations (now) we have a team put together to work on the finalization of e2e plugins – there’s still stuff to be figured out in regards to the whole end to end flow of developing flow functions in this new system, buuuut we’ll get there. And I will definitely be working on draw signature once the pipeline is open thanks for being so patient.
@stayfoolish just to get back to you, I have started to look at the draw signature flow function, but it seems like we will have to change the plugin behind the flow function to begin with to a newer library. Thus when I have done this I will publish a new flow function / component for this. (It’ll still take some time to do this, and naturally I can’t give out any timelines as priorities may shift and unexpected stuff may happen, but just to keep you updated)
