Freehand on iPad 2 (no Pencil)

Hi there,


Does anyone know if there are other gestures for controlling Freehand on older iPad models which do not support Pencil?

  • Pinch and push to zoom in and out
  • Using the pen icon:
  • – Touch and drag to draw
  • – Draw square or circle and hold/pause to spring a closed shape

Is that is, really?


Yes, I could buy a new iPad with Pencil. I just don't know when I'll be able to afford a new iPad Pro (just released). I don't want to buy an older upgraded model in the meantime.


Thank you!
