You're right to propose new enhancements but I suppose the biggest priority for Macos part is to make LO work on Catalina without any workarounds.
Comment 2 V Stuart Foote 2020-04-20 13:03:18 UTC
This is all native macOS code, essentially implementing new os API to bring in iPad as a digitizing tablet. Similar to implementing native Windows Touch API for Gestures on touch screens (i.e. bug 85677).
Comment 3 Volga 2020-04-21 13:18:11 UTC
Sidecar also allowed to use gestures on iPad screens.
