Option to lock pages

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
When I’m scrolling through my notes in Anytype Android, I frequently unintentionally drag a block of text, even when I’m technically not in edit mode.

Describe the solution you’d like
An option to lock pages. Very useful when you’re just reviewing long notes that you don’t mean to edit.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

  1. Better sensitivity for the app to distinguish between just scrolling down and attempting to drag something
  2. A button to go between read mode and edit mode
    (But personally, I think an option to lock pages is better)

Additional context


in the telegram group the developer mentioned they are already working on this feature. It will also be implemented for desktop apps.


A good UI/UX neither require “Read/edit mode” nor “page lock feature”.
It’s like fixing a flat tire using a wooden wheel.


It appears as if this has now been implemented in Android 0.6.0, and is on track to be implemented in all Anytype clients soon. The drag-and-drop functionality also has (supposedly) been fixed, although I am unable to test it as it doesn’t work for me.

Scroll and accidental drag-n-drop fixed in the latest version
