Can’t play the game with Apple Pencil when Scribble is activated on iOS14


When Scribble is activated on iOS14, which allows to write handwritten text in text fields on the iPad, I can no longer use the Apple pencil to play Forge of Empires on my iPad. For some reason, the whole game screen acts as a drawing canvas, and when I use the pencil, it’s drawing lines across the screen. Workaround is to deactivate Scribble, but since this system-wide change, it is annoying to just change the setting to play Forge of Empires. Please change this accordingly so that the pencil works as before (just as I would be using my finger). If you could allow Scribble still on your entry fields (such as in the messaging centre), that would be an added bonus. Thanks.
