As for the canon manuals that Canon provides. They are decent but they don't have all the answers. If the manuals had have all the answers what would be the need for a forum?

 

Thanks,

Exactly.  I do not think there is anything wrong with your camera, either.  Like I said above, I strongly advise you to contact Canon Support, so that they can walk you through it.

I posted my question in hopes that someone had found away to disable touch focal point without disabling the entire touch screen. As for the canon manuals that Canon provides. They are decent but they don't have all the answers. If the manuals had have all the answers what would be the need for a forum?

You have, or had, concluded that you were having an issue with Touch & Drag AF.  If disabling Touch & Drag AF did not correct your problem which it apparently did not, then your problem, whatever it is, is not with the Touch &. Drag AF feature.

 

There is something else that is causing your issue, and you need one on one assistance.  Contact Canon Support.

Re: EOS R Focal Point

I just got off the phone with Canon support. I asked the call taker if there was anyway to turn off the focal point without turning off the touch screen. And she said no.

That's too bad, because you already knew that before you picked up the phone.

Re: EOS R Focal Point

I appreacate everyone who tried to help me with the focal point issue.

 

But, I had already explained to you that I had been told on this forum that you couldn't disable the focal point without disabling the touch screen. 

 

Have a great day,

Re: EOS R Focal Point

I have the same problem too. And a friend of mine also. It’s crazy that focus point is. Ever in the center

Meant to say it is never in the center. Never

The downloadable user guide is not the abbreviated hard copy version that Canon provides with the camera. The full downloadable guide for the R is over 600 pages long. Most people who come here asking for help don't as much as glance at it. Best of luck to you.
