Is there a way to disable the ruler on iPad?

Summary: The ruler tool keeps errantly activating and appearing on my screen without provocation.

What I did: Not sure what is causing it to turn on. It comes on about every few minutes when I’m working on the iPad. Maybe there is a gesture or something setup to enable it via the presence of my hand on the screen?

What happened: It stays on until I disable it via the tool pallet icon.

What I expected: I don’t expect it to activate on its own like this. I would prefer to get rid of it entirely.

Mockup version: 3.4.3

Device type: iPad

OS version: 16.3.1

Other notes: It would be great if there’s some global setting to just deactivate it for the app. I don’t need it and it’s hugely disruptive to have to keep manually disabling it every time it comes on via the tool pallet in the UI. thanks

Welcome to the Mockup Community!

Upon reviewing your inquiry, it is possible that you have set the Apple Pencil’s Double Tap Gesture to “toggle ruler”.
Can you check that for us?!

@amal yes you are correct! That setting indeed was on under “gestures” and likely the culprit. I have disabled it. Thanks very much for your help in sleuthing this.

We’re glad it worked!
