  1. Yeah basically what I experienced wasn't Designer just returning back to the latest selected tool. What was happening to me is that "B" was set as a shortcut, in preferences, for Pixel Tool. Even after I explicitly removed it. This only happened after re opening Designer, and it didn't happen to me using Photo. Hope this helps!
  2. @norbinw you can sample colors on the fly with the option key in mac, just like you'd do in Photoshop.
  3. Thank you @walt.farrell and @MEB for your responses! Also notice that I didn't face this issue in Photo, so maybe that's a lead to fixing it? Have a great week!
  4. Hi, Thank you for the tip on that preference check, didn't know about that! Yeah I definitely dragged the app from the .dmg into the apps folder. I also installed the free trial of Photo to check it out, and it works ok in there. When I removed "B" from the other brushes shortcuts and left only the Paint Brush Tool, it stayed like that after closing and opening again... So maybe it's a bug in the Designer? Thank you for the warm welcome!
  5. What is your operating system and version (Windows 10, OSX Mojave, iOS 12 etc)? macOS Big Sur 11.1 Affinity Designer 1.8.6 (trial version) What happened for you (and what you expected to happen) I want to remove "B" as a shortcut for the Pixel Tool, so it doesn't swap to Paint Brush Tool if I accidentally hit B twice. Every time I open the Designer, Pixel Tool has its shortcut set to "B". Provide a recipe for creating the problem (step-by-step what you did). remove the shortcut "B" for Pixel Tool. close Affinity Designer. open Affinity Designer again. Pixel Tool has its shortcut set to "B" again. also tried: Saving the shortcuts as a ".affshortcuts" file. Closing Affinity Designer. Going to "~/Library/ApplicationSupport/Affinity Designer" Replacing the "shortcuts.affshortcuts" file with mine. Opening Affinity Designer. The Pixel Tool is set to "B" again (it seems it's always reset to "B"?) Any unusual hardware (like tablets or external monitors or drives that may affect things) or relevant other applications like font managers or display managers. Second monitor ASUS, using HDMI cable Wacom Intuos tablet Did this same thing used to work and if so have you changed anything recently? (software or hardware) No
