  2. Dear Affinity Team, I love your applications and I’m immensely happy about having an InDesign alternative now as well. However, there’s one thing that somewhat annoyed me from the beginning: for the navigation through text you chose the Adobe shortcuts instead of the native macOS shortcuts. This is rather disturbing if you’re a keyboard person and constantly using Apple’s iWorks suite as well as different text editors. As I somewhat understand that you want to make the switch easy for Adobe users, why not add the “Text shortcuts” as listed on your help site to the keyboard shortcuts customisation in the settings? You can even do this in Adobe programs. Example Moves cursor to start of word: macOS native: ⌥← (which is Text/Spacing/Tighten in Affinity or Adobe) Affinity: ⌘← (which is Moves cursor to start of line in macOS native shortcuts) I wrote something similar a few years back and I am not the only one disturbed by this. Cheers, Hagen.
  3. Hi there, first of all: a big thank you for building alternatives to Adobe’s programs! The latter are so annoying in many ways but regrettably still unavoidable for graphic designers. Which brings me straight to my point: I’ve noticed you’ve implemented many things to work like in the Adobe programs which is the right thing to do in most cases if you want to get Adobe users to switch. But – for me – one of the most annoying things in Adobe programs is that editing text works completely differently to the Mac standard way. The keyboard shortcuts for jumping around from word to word (alt + left/right arrow keys) or to the beginning/end of a line (cmd + left/right arrow keys) should in my opinion be the Mac standard ones and not the Adobe ones. It happens regularly that I change the kerning when I want to jump back or forth in text. Thanks a lot in advance for reading this. Cheers, Hagen.
