  1. When you right-click on the Toolbar, a menu appears, where you can edit its items. Please add this function (edit items as in the menu View\Customize Tools...) to the Tools Panel. Thank you
  2. Is it possible to access swatches from the context menu as shown below? Of course I mean document palettes should be listed here shouldn’t they, logically? If not, why not? Thanks
  3. Hey community and devs! Problem is the following: I am not able to use the right click on the buttons of the stylus of my HUION display tablet in the complete Affinity Suite (latest release as well as beta). The right click doesn't get recognized. I have already tried experimenting with the preferences, but have not come to a sufficient result, but to the realization that it could be related to Windows Ink. I have already written in more detail about this here, a topic about a similar problem. I'm using the latest release of OS and drivers as well as both latest rele
  4. I've been using Photoshop in Windows for 20 years (I've never used an Apple machine). I'm used to chosing a tool then making a right click to show the context menu and various appropriate options for that tool. It's instinctive & simple - one hand, one finger usually gives me what I need. I've installed Affinity Photo and find the right button does nothing. There is no setting to enable/empower the right button; there is no Help for the right mouse button. But right mouse button actions is a fundamental part of the Windows GUI - it works everywhere (except in Affinity for me).
  5. Just answered a post and considered a few additions to the swatches panel. When right-clicking on a colour fill swatch you have the option to Make Global effectively changing a fill colour to a global colour, but, once a colour has been converted to a global colour, that global colour should have its own context menu that would include... Make Global Spot Make Global Overprint Revert Global (this would revert the colour swatch back to a global fill that can be used to change colours within a document en masse)
  6. Please add full set of fields in the context menu (mouse right click) so that it becomes easier to add e.g. Section name in the header on a master page. Or, at least make them available under Text > Insert > Field. Now most fields must be picked from the separate Field panel, but at least the Section name would be convenient to be available from a menu, similarly as the Page Number field.
  7. RMB=Right Mouse button I see that one of the underlying principles in Affinity apps is what is called Context Toolbars (under the Menu bar). This probably works well for many users – but I have to admit that I prefer moving my mouse or pen even less, whenever it makes sense. Obviously I'm a heavy user of keyboard shortcuts – but there's a lot of options which don't really lend themselves for shortcuts. From Photoshop I'm super used to /spoiled from a wealth of context sensitive RMB menus: For every tool there's a matching RMB menu, which offers a drilldown of exactly the options requir
  8. more specific context menu entries for each tools and an option to customize the context menu in settings.
  9. Trying to follow the Affinity Photos Edge Detection for Masking Tutorial on 2017 iMac 5k, High Sierra. At 3:22 The possibility to "Load to Gaussian Blur" has disappeared in my version of 1.6.7 that I downloaded from the App Store yesterday. Am I doing something wrong? or is it a bug? If it is a bug, does it affect all channels manipulations with live filters or only the Gaussian Blur?
  10. I don't know how long it has been missing, I was searching for it to work with the Gradient tool, but no matter what I do I can't get it to appear on my Mac Pro 5,1 running El Capitan. I tried following the instructions in this thread - The toolbar is available in Affinity Photo running on the same computer and the toolbar is working on my Mac Pro laptop running Sierra. Do I need to reinstall the program or do I need to (finally) upgrade to Sierra?
  11. Add "Selection From Layer" command to context menu, and maybe to top panel.
  12. Just a small request: now that the horizontal/vertical distribution options are no longer available in the toolbar and must be accessed via the top-level alignment drop-down menu, I was wondering if they could also be added to the right-click context-menu under the "alignment" heading? Currently, all the contents of the top-level alignment menu are available in the right-click alignment menu, except the distribution options. Thank you.
  13. I am keyboard phobic and have great difficulty with shortcuts, so pop up right click context menus are a very useful shortcut device indeed. for me. Now that is a very personal problem but I am sure there are plenty of others who find well implemented context clicking a very focused way of getting to just what you need in a given context. I find that this is rather inconsistently applied in the Layers Palette. There are things one does very rarely included there and things one does frequently that are missing. I think the following need adding to this menu when the appropriate layer(s) are
  14. Working through this video from 1.30ish and using Affinity 1.4.1 For some reason, with a pixel layer selected, and when interacting with the channel panel and doing a control-click on a channel to load it to a pixel selection, the context menu will not appear, which puts a stop to things. Tried on two machines and with a couple of sample files.
  15. Okay so after much googling I cannot for the life of me locate the context menu. I want to convert a path to a selection. This is a little frustrating. I've attached a screen cap of my workspace. I think its the menu that comes up in the top giving contextual information about the tool I currently have selected. Bu I cannot find a convert to selection option in it for the pen tool. Is it somewhere else, or do I need to covert the path to curves? UPDATE: Okay so I found it, if you have the node selection tool active it doesn't so up. But if you have the pen tool it is visible.
  16. We, or at least I, need more contrast in the clickable"option" boxes in the context menu. There is too little difference between the darkness of the logenze and the darkness of the menu bar. On some of the ones that toggle between Off/On, I simply cannot tell by looking which state they are in.
  17. Hello, could anyone tell me how this shortcut works on a german keyboard? It's the shortcut for the "context menu". I attached a screenshot what im talking about? Thanks in front. Marco
