Lightroom mobile: Swap panels for Left-Handers

The current (08-2017) build on Lr Mobile places the tools on the right' for left handed people especially when using a iPad Pro and the iPencil, this causes serious functionality issues, as using the sliders etc means the left hand is over the image...it would be great if the location of the tools could be moved back to the bottom (prefered) or be selectable (left or right side)

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Left handed ui for ipad.

The option to move control panels to the left on iPad as currently I block the pic when editing.

You'll be thrilled to know you already can! Go to LR's Settings > Gesture Shortcuts section > Left Handed Editing.

I use LR on a Samsung S4 tablet and it's driving me nuts! When is this feature coming to android?

I'm using on a Samsung tablet too (the S5e), the mobile cc workflow is great but it does feel really awkward when I'm using my pen for editing. Agree we need this feature on android.

I am a lefty. I use apple pencil on my left hand to edit photos. However, the UI is on the right. 

This way, my hand must cover the photo while tweaking options. So annoying...

Been using this way for 1.5 years, hoping Adobe would add options to change directions of UI..

Am I the only lefty one struggling on Lightroom for iPad? I mean, UI customization is one of the basic things you'd expect on softwares.

Is there a way to move the edit buttons to the left hand side of the screen? 

As a left handed person having the buttons on the right side makes editing a bit awkward.

On iOS, yes, it's in Settings > Gestures. It's not available on Android yet.

In iPadOS this is possible, In iOS it is not.

Hi.  I use Lightroom on my iPad.  Very happy with the program but wish to be able to move the toolbar from right side to the left side because I use my Apple Pencil with my left hand. they would facilitate my work. Are there any settings for them or can it be an idea for the program.  Thanks
