  1. Anyway, the point I am trying to make here is that Affinity Photo does a lot of things to be like photoshop, and basically be a seamless alternative to Photoshop with improved tools. Shortcut keys are an integral part of productivity, so having them match across the board helps with migrating users from Photoshop to Affinity Photo.
  2. Yes, Photoshop does this. For resizing the brush size. Try it out. Alt+RMB and slightly off topic, but Windows itself has RMB dragging. It lets you window-select files, and immediately brings up the command menu on release, instead of the two-step LMB window-select, then clicking RMB to bring up the menu.
  3. Holding Alt activates the color picker. I use it all the time. Holding Alt+RMB doesn't do anything.
  4. You are absolutely right, updating the original post to reflect this. However, that's still one too many mouse buttons to be held for no reason.
  5. Right now, holding Alt+RMB+LMB lets you drag and resize the brush on the fly, which is a feature Photoshop also has. Except in Photoshop it's just hold Alt+RMB, which currently does nothing in Affinity Photo. Please change this shortcut to this for all the tools that let you change brush sizes. Not only is it easier to do, it standardizes for those who still use both PS and AF. On top of that, Photoshop has a shortcut in brush mode, clicking RMB brings up a list of brushes. Convenient, and eliminates the need to always have the brushes toolbox open.
  6. THANK YOU I was looking for this feature because I use it so frequently in Photoshop. In photoshop, you just hold Alt+RMB. Right now, that does absolutely nothing in Affinity Photo. Changing the shortcut to match Photoshop would be so much more user friendly, and compatible if one uses both software still.
