Adobe - hello, I’m not sure if it’s possible or not but I’d love to have a left handed option for Lightroom cc on the iPad - where all of the settings are on the left. It’s especially tough when using the Apple Pencil with it crossing over the image. I know that’s a huge ask and probably not in the pipeline but thought I’d throw it out there. Thanks. Jeff

Hi Jeff, I'm about to make your day! It's already there!

Click the cog icon to show settings, then go to Gesture Shortcuts and there's a toggle switch.

Yes, so far. But they are aiming for feature parity, so the fact it's on iPad hopefully means it'll come to Android sooner than later too.

Sorry man - from what Victoria said above - sounds like it's only an iOS option as of now. Not sure though? I've never used an android tablet.

This is a flaw. Why not keeping the ipad and android versions in sync? Without the left hand option for android, lightroom mobile is useless for me / left handed users. Shame!

I'm on an android device. Why was this feature left out? You guys got something against left-handers? ;)

Is it Possible to move the Toolbar in lightroom mobile to the left as I use a Samsung S - pen and I'm left handed which makes it a little awkward to use, is this already available or possible to implement.
Thanks,
Andrew

I am using Lightroom iPad edition but can not find a left hand user switch in any settings, am I missing it right in front of me or is it not a thing. Been in view options etc and not joy.
