    Delete command vs. keyboard shortcut bug?

    Owenr that comment was only referring to your keyboards having Backspace and mine having Delete, you're in UK I'm in US solves that mystery. You are correct, the issue is still the same and should be fixed. Did you see MEB's request? I don't have that keyboard, it's one of yours.

    Owenr, that may be the keyboard issue, in the US we've had delete only for many years. Where in UK? My daughter is about to move to Cheltenham.

    Thanks JimmyJack. Seems backwards to me, especially since the Layers menu shows that backspace/delete icon as keyboard shortcut for delete. Oh well. Owenr, that's really interesting, all my laptops (MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Airs) have only delete. But you got me curious so I dug out my three Apple keyboards for desktops: a bluetooth, an ancient USB, and a fairly recent USB. They too just have delete. I remember your backspace keys, just haven't seen them lately. Where are you geographically?

    I have six Macs, 4 diff models, they all look like this, no Bksp.

    OK thanks. There is no backspace key on most Macs now, just delete. I saw that cut would work, but that would eliminate what's on the clipboard.

    Thanks for all of the responses. OWENR, I checked out what you said and sure enough, if I deselect the freehand tool the delete key works properly. That's one strange feature and for me a major one as I often trim shapes rapidly using the lasso in PShop, (select-delete-select-delete...) and this adds an additional click in between. It basically renders the speed of using a keyboard shortcut useless. But at least you solved the mystery! Affinity, you might want to consider allowing that "feature" to be turned off? Or make it work like all other programs. In summation, making a selection with the freehand selection tool then hitting the delete/backspace key is "undo" not delete as is shown under the Layer menu dropdown. At least on Mac.

    No, I just opened a new file, drew a red design all over, and the layer says (pixel). Selected the middle with free hand selection tool, hit delete key, the selection disappears but to effect on art. But select 'delete' word with mouse under layer menu and area is deleted. Please understand, this has nothing to do with what you can or cannot do on a given layer type, it is that the command 'delete' under the Layer dropdown menu and it's shortcut shown to the right of the word do two different things. See attached screen shots.
  8. I'm on the ten day trial of Photo, really hoping I can move over from PShop but am experiencing frustration with simple things. After making a selection, Command-D deselects (as it does in PShop). But the Delete key, which should delete the content of the selection, also deselects. If I choose the 'delete' command under the Layer menu it does what I want and deletes what is inside the selection. But that command also shows the Backspace/Delete key as a keyboard shortcut which does not work. As stated above, it merely deselects. I tried changing the keyboard shortcut for that tool, but same result. Only selecting 'delete' with the mouse eliminates what's in the selection. Keyboard shortcuts must work for me to purchase the program. Can you explain this issue? And is there any kind of post explaining basic differences in Affinity vs. PShop?
  9. Hi, this is a pre-purchase question. I'm an old Freehand user looking for just two of the features FH had. Does Affinity Designer: 1) Allow you to flip a portion of text wrapped around an ellipse so that text on the bottom is not upside down? 2) Allow you to use alignment tools on anchors/control points along a bezier curve? Thanks.
