  1. I'm become crazy by a stupid simple task: How to delete something in an selection? I've selected an area (Rect selection) that i want to delete. Then i press the delete key, but it deletes the complete layer!? I've searched in the Edit- and the Selection-Menu, but nothing. Then i use the help to search for delete, and it finds just the Delete Layer command? Searching for that term in google shows me al lot of impressive tricks, but not how to delete the content inside a simple selection. So i switched to Pixelmator to do that in two seconds... - But that's insane, for such a basic fun
  2. Affinity Photo version (Windows, from Affinity Store) Windows Version Windows 10 (Pro) version 20H2 Issue Forgive me if this bug already has been reported. As a new user coming from GIMP I wanted to bind the "Select Sampled Color" tool to "Shift+O". When using the shortcut, in a document with colored pixels, Affinity Photo just shuts down immediately. I tried changing the shortcut to other combinations as well, eg. "Shift+I", "Ctrl+Q" and "Ctrl+W", with the same result. I didn't try that many shortcut combinations, but I believe the bug affects enough k
  3. It seems I can't assign the Affinity shortcut keystroke Control+Option on a Wacom Intuos Medium. It just won't let me do it. I can make basic keystroke shortcuts like Control + (anything). Is there a way to do this? I'd like to assign this keystroke to a single button on my Wacom.
  4. I am trying to add a shortcut for joining two curves in Designer as I use it frequently. But I am not able to find the the option for it. Could anyone help? Also is there any tool in Designer for selecting curves by attributes such as color, line weight etc? Thanks in advance.
  5. Hey, I just switched over from Photoshop & Illustrator and its really frustrating for me to see that zooming is "CMD + Mousewheel" while rotating is "Alt + Mousewheel". Coming from the Adobe Products (where the two shortcuts are flipped), I was wondering if it is possible to change these shortcuts anywhere. I already searched through the shortcuts menu in the setting but I didnt find anything there, a quick google search didnt help me either. If anyone knows something, please let me know. Thanks :) (Win 10, ver. 1.9.1)
  6. Hi, I have a problem with the zoom shortcut (ctrl + spacebar) sometimes it doesn't work , only works if I press first spacebar and wait to press ctrl (If I press the two keys at the same time, or ctrl first the zoom tool doesn't work) , There is a way to fix this? . Thanks
  7. I am trying to set a keyboard shortcut to set fill black and white. I enter the letter D as shown but It does not work It is not recalled when I reopen preferences (blank input area). (I tried Save to a file, but nothing) Shortcut X to swap colours works fine (for example) I am expecting the magenta/white currently selected in my screenshot to jump to black/white, but nothing happens. What am I doing wrong please? Windows 10, Affinity Photo 1.9.1
  8. It would be a must to be able to assing a keyboard shortcut to a macro, this avoids to open library (by means of Menu-View->Studio->Library ot a shortcut - I use Alt-L) every time a use a frequently used macro
  9. Assigning Select Sampled Color to a shortcut and attempting to use it causes a crash every time. Crash happened in last 1.8 version and persists in 1.9. Tested on 2 different computers: Ryzen 5 3600, 16 GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, Windows 10 Ryzen 7 3750H, 16 GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650, Windows 10
  10. Hi there! One Affinity photo feature that is dearly missing for me is a keyboard shortcut to increase and decrease opacity of the currently selected layer. I would need this, so I could map this shortcut to a MIDI controller and be able to quickly set a layer's opacity with said controller. Since there is an ever increasing number of people who use MIDI controllers as quick input devices for the graphic softwares, I believe I am far from the only one who would benefit from such a feature. Currently there is only the possibilty to use the up/down arrow keys (+ shift optionally) to
  11. 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.
  12. I've been avoiding updating from 1.8.3 to 1.8.4 for some time due to this issue. Recently I went straight to 1.8.5 [latest version] to see if it would be fixed, but it wasn't. It's probably not even considered a bug, but I'd like to understand if this was an intended change. What's happening: I've always been able to resize my brushes using Alt + LClick + RClick [and drag] until version 1.8.3. From 1.8.4 on, this command only activates the Color Picker, which is also activated by Alt + LClick, so it's just redundant. If I want to resize my brushes in 1.8.4+, the
  13. Hi, I updated to version and for a reason I don't know how to reproduce, keyboard shortcuts (AD and windows ones) stop working after about a minute ONLY in Designer (not windows). 1 - I quit and relaunched AD and the problem appears again about a minute later. I sometimes press the Windows key by mistake, if that helps. 2 - I reverted to AD and there is no problem. So I keep (french) and will wait for further versions, hoping that this bug is known and will be solved. If someone knows more about it... Cédric.
  14. As many contributors requested, I´m missing a very important shortcut: hitting ESC to release the texttool and have the movetool Its not only to move the box, its because I I must often select a few objects after typing, or to change colors of objects and so on. That is why it is a hindrance that the tool does not switch to the move-tool. Its very easy to locate the ESC-Button and hit it (twice). Its not so easy to search "v" and hit it without an acident. Its a most-requested feature, so please have a look at it (some examples, more in the forum). Thank you!
  15. Hi, First post for me. affinity photo for windows: I can't change the brush size and hardness with ctrl + alt + mouse drag... when i try it it shows me a sort of color picker.. any solution?
  16. Hi, I just started using Affinity Designer at work and I love it so far. One of the features that will really come in handy is to collapse all artboards with one shortcut key. I usually end up with several artboards in an Affinity Designer file and it gets pretty annoying to navigate through layers on top of layers. So please add this feature to the next rollout of the app. Thanks!
  17. I do not want to set two shortcuts for display or hide layer. One button , please. In addtion , I want two shortcuts for select next layer and previous layer.
  18. Hello, since I have updated my Affinity Suite (Designer, Photo and Publisher) to version 1.8.3 ALL default shortcuts don't work. NO CTRL+C, CTRL+V, CTRL+S .... nothing. Please assist as soon as possible. Working with Affinity Suite is currently no fun . Regards, Henning
  19. Hi, I'm using Publisher for few weeks only, but I'm constantly struggling with one feature. If I press [Space] + [Command] the Zoom tool (+) is temporarily used even if I'm using another tool. If I click the mouse it zooms in on the selected location. If I add [Alt] to the combination ([Space] + [Command] + [Alt]) the Zoom tool (-) appears. If I click the mouse it zooms out, but the document jumps some amount down. I was searching throughout the preferences, but did not find any related settings. If I choose the the Zoom tool directly from the tool bar, it behaves correctly both
  20. Hi, This is the first time I have tried this... Has anyone experienced the affshortcuts file from Affinity Photo not being recognized on a Mac. Can't seem to get it to load. When I save the default shortcut file it fails to be recognized. I have the apple store version 1.84 of Affinity Photo. Dan AffinityShortcutDan.affshortcuts
  21. I read that the windows shortcut for brush size and hardness are holding Alt + Right Mouse Button and then dragging left/right or up/down. However this is not working for me. Am I doing something wrong?
  22. The shortcut opt+delete doesn't do the magic of inpaint, but it erase as if it's only delete. I have to go to the menu bar > edit > inpaint to get the command to work. Other common shortcuts work fine ( command S, C, X, V, etc.) I am using iMac and Wacom Intuos Pen. Anyone has the same problem?
  23. Hey Everyone from Turkey, I wanna change Zoom In shortcut. My Zoom In shortcut is ctrl+oemplus. I tried to change it but i've no any idea which button is "oemplus". I wanna change it as "alt+oemplus" Please, can you help me for that?
  24. Hi, I recently bought affinity designer and I'm still learning the shortcuts. But something I really miss from using other editors is being able to duplicate the document you're editing onto a new one. I've looked on the forums for a way to do that but I've found nothing. Is there a way to duplicate the page you're editing onto a new document instead of opening a new document and copy;pasting the contents?
