  1. Hi all, Recently purchased a keyboard and mouse to use along with my iPad Pro, as I thought I would be able to use Affinity Designer more intuitively. Only to find that the program is missing some very basic keyboard shortcuts. Some examples of the shortcuts in question are: Artboard panning (Spacebar + Drag), along with CMD button and (-)/(+) for zooming in and out. I really wanted to be able to invest more time into Affinity on the iPad, but feel like I can't with it lacking such basic shortcuts. Does anyone know if these are going to be added at some point (hopefu
  2. I really loved how Affinity Designer for the iPad is designed very intuitively for touch. But it would be much better if there would be better keyboard support like having more keyboard shortcuts or customizable keyboard shortcuts. Also having support for modifier keys like holding alt/opt for maintaining aspect ratio when resizing an image. Or holding space to drag an object or pan the screen. Thanks!
  3. A great workflow helper for keyboard driven work in Photoshop is what I know as sticky keys – but it works different from the Windows accessibility feature with the same name... If anyone knows a better name – please comment. The principle is simple but powerful and doesn't get into the way of anyone who doesn't want to use this feature: Pressing and releasing the E key from say the brush tool will switch to the Erazer tool permanently, just as usual. If one however presses and keeps holding down the E-Key one can quickly eraze some strokes. Letting go the E key automatically switches bac
  4. I may have missed this one, but I am kinda surprised that there isn't an option to select a keyboard shortcut to convert node type. Any chance that could be added? maybe Shift+A since it currently doesn't do anything? Thanks.
  5. 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
  6. Normally, I can press spacebar to activate the view tool (the hand tool) temporarily. How can I do that while entering text within a text frame? I couldn’t find a way to create a new shortcut for that in Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts.
  7. I'm coming from Photoshop, and haven't figured out how to replicate something in Affinity Photos yet. When I'm editing text blocks, I will often select a word or phrase in the block (so not the entire block) and need to adjust the size incrementally. In Photoshop, I would select the words, click on the font size field, and use the up/down arrows to adjust the size one point at a time. I can do all this in Affinity Photos, however the difference is that in Photoshop, I'd see the text change on screen with every key press. In AP, I don't see the text change size until I click away or hit ret
  8. When working inside a text box, or in text mode (not sure of the correct expression, but basically when the cursor is active inside a text box such as during text editing), what's the easiest way to select, say, the Move tool via its keyboard shortcut – without instead typing the letter 'V' into the text I'm working on? I find myself doing this over and over, sometimes without realising it and so inserting stray letters into my layout.
  9. The keyboard shortcut for toggling fill context stopped working. I checked the preferences and it is still mapped to the key X as it should be. Other keyboard shortcuts still work. Toggling the fill context with the mouse still works. Rebooting the system, installing the latest version nor reseting the keyboard shortcuts did not help. I don't know what has changed. I have updated to Mac OS X Catalina lately.
  10. I was trying to add a hotkey to Smooth Curve, but can not find it listed in the Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts area. Can this please be added? This button... Also, it would be nice to be able to hotkey Close Curve and Reverse Curve too. Thank you
  11. While text overflow issues were discussed in the "Affinity Publisher 1.8.3 - Text Overflow issue," I would make this suggestion here. Could turning the Hide Overflow box in Text Frame be put in Keyboard Shortcuts? As yet I have not found it there. Here's my reason. In creating a new text in APub I often work with various older and longer texts in the same doc, each in their own text frame and background fill, but without the full text showing until I need it so as to save page space. A quick keyboard shortcut would allow the user to reveal the entire text without going to the Text Frame
  12. I have found "Lock Children" useful but hard to reach. I haven't found it in any menus yet. So far the only access I've found is to click a very tiny icon at the extreme upper right of the Publisher window, drop down a small menu, and select Lock Children. This involves hitting tiny icons or UI elements with the mouse, which is not what I'd call the most user-friendly thing ever. Then, do the same if you need to toggle the setting off again. With this apparently not being anywhere in the keyboard shortcuts dialog, there's no way to assign a keystroke to the command that I know of. But is
  13. This Affinity Spotlight article has PDFs and souce files for the latest Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo Desktop keyboard shortcuts. https://affinityspotlight.com/article/downloadable-affinity-keyboard-shortcut-cheat-sheets/ It is part of the Learning category that compliment the video tutorials
  14. Where Publisher v1.8.1, Preferences/Keyboard shortcuts... Dropdowns selected: Publisher and Tools. Description Changed keyboard shortcut for 'Arrow tool'. Then, switched dropdown to 'Designer', noticed that 'Arrow tool' shortcut entry is now double (see attached image). Switched dropdown to 'Photo'... the same. Clicked on 'Serif defaults' and double entry was removed. Added a shortcut to 'Arrow tool' for 'Publisher' again... and again the shortcut entry is doubled for 'Designer' and 'Photo'. Expected Consistent number of 'Arrow tool' shortcut entries. Remedies tried:
  15. Create a text block and put some words in. While still editing that, the Mac defines option-arrows to move the insertion point by words and by extension option-shift-arrows. (Windows ctrl-arrows). It appears you remapped control to command which is incorrect. Command-arrows means move to the end of the line. Option-↑↓ is beginning/end of paragraph respectively though I can't see a lot of use here. I can't fix this using the keyboard control panel and find it extremely aggravating. If I'm at work, my brain thinks Windows. I can't handle 30 years using a Mac and it not working like a Mac. M
  16. 1. As mentioned in this post, the online & Mac built-in Painting brush strokes help topic says this: With many Brush tools in Photo or Liquify Persona, you can quickly change the opacity of your brush using your keyboard's number keys. To change flow instead, press the ⌘ key then a number key. The modifier key that changes flow is the ⌃ (ctrl) key, not the CMD key. 2. As mentioned in this post, in the the Affinity Photo - Panoramas video tutorial, @James Ritson says "Affinity document files" can be used with panorama stitching, but this does not seem to be true. Also,
  17. In the View menu on the Tool Bar "Preview Mode" is shown as Control + W, but nothing happens and my MacBook makes that 'boop' noise that it does when no action can be completed at this time. Am I pushing the wrong keys, or is this a bug?
  18. The title pretty much says it all... Being able to assign a keyboard shortcut to a frequent action means I can assign it to a mouse button or a button on a drawing tablet, StreamDeck or a macro control app on a smartphone/tablet... This has been a critical and massively time saving part of my workflow for years and feels like a huge step backwards not having it in AF. Incidentally, this seems like it COULD be an incredibly easy thing to implement (guessing <1 hour for one skilled programmer..?) and I'll bet with enough support we can have it in the next u
  19. During configuration of shortcuts to use a Wacom dial to rotate canvas I found this issue: * In the settings shortcuts panel both left and right Alt-keys on the keyboard are displayed as 'Alt', so there is no way to see the difference between the two * But the actual keyboard shortcut is in reality indeed bound to the left OR the right Alt key. Looking in the interface it looks like both 'Rotate Left' and 'Rotate Right' are bound to the same shortcut (Alt+2), but in fact the first one is bound to AltLeft-2 and the second to AltRight+2. Affinity Photo knows this, because it doesn't
  20. Same bug as in Photo. It's impossible to assign the shortcut "ALT + BACKSPACE" or "CTRL + BACKSPACE" to anything. The software just refuses to acknowledge the BACKSPACE when you press it on the keyboard. I double checked the Mac Os version, just to be sure, and it works as expected. No problems at all at assigning the shortcut there. Thank you
  21. It's impossible to assign the shortcut "ALT + BACKSPACE" or "CTRL + BACKSPACE" to anything. The software just refuses to acknowledge the BACKSPACE when you press it on the keyboard. I have tried, of course, removing the same shortcut (ALT + BACKSPACE) from the "Inpaint" tool (which is predefined by default), and then assigning to anything else (Fill with foreground colour in my case). Nothing, it just doesn't work. I double checked the Mac Os version, just to be sure, and it works as expected. No problems at all at assigning the shortcut there. Thank you

  23. Just a few days ago all of the keyboard zoom controls (hot keys, shortcuts) just stopped in Affinity Photo. Despite running a repair, and a complete uninstall and reinstall they still do not work. However those do work in Affinity Designer and Publisher. All programs are latest versions. System is Win 7 Ultimate with all latest updates. Is it possible there is a fix for this? Could this have something to do with the recent MS .Net Framework update?
  24. On my US keyboard, the key to the left of 1 is the `/~ key. Unmodified, the character is `. With Shift, the character is ~. I'll use `/~ to describe the key itself. The keyboard shortcut for Shift to Next View is, by default, CMD+`. When I press the CMD+`/~ keys nothing happens. When I press SHIFT+CMD+`/~ I get the correct response. When I change the keyboard shortcut to SHIFT+CMD+~, the opposite occurs. Pressing CMD+`/~ then produces the desired result. I know sometimes third party software could override some global key commands but I haven't noticed any other key commands
  25. Hi, is the information in the Affinity Workbooks applicable for the iPad versions of Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo? Also, are keyboard shortcuts compatible if I attached a keyboard to my iPad? Thanks
