  1. I am trying to print various images / photo's from Affinity Photo using a Canon Pro 1000 printer and for some strange reason all attempts have resulted in the image displaced e.g. not centred. The margins are all set up & look good & even in soft proofing but the A2 printed image is offset to one side (rt.) approx. 2→5mm in both portrait & landscape. When editing / printing using the Canon software then the photos don't have this issue. I've noticed other posts on here that have similar issues but I've not discovered a solution. If anyone is able to advise me as to w
  2. I have a weird issue with Affinity Designer. The mouse pointer displays heavily shifted to the bottom-right of the actual spot when using the Pen Tool. Of course this makes using the tool a lot harder. I have recorded two videos to show the issue. The first video is a recording from my phone while creating a bezier curve. The second video was taken at the same time using the screen recorder of my Mac. Yes, because, funny thing is that on the screen recording, the mouse pointer is at the right place, so I had to make a video with my phone to show that the pointer is actually shif
  3. It would be great to add an option/pref in Photo to make scaling of placed images consistent with scaling of other elements. SHIFT=proportional / NO SHIFT=non-proportional The way it is currently leads to more errors due to muscle memory. I would like to ALWAYS have to hold shift to keep an item proportional. It seems like an odd choice to have SHIFT behave different for different objects. Sometimes I end up slightly distorting a placed image because I hold shift to constrain it but I'm actually not constraining it.
  4. Hello, I am not able to select multiple object, even when I hold shift or ctrl while dragging. I changed my keyboard to U.S standard but still not able to select multiple objects. Am I the only one who is encountering this bug ? Thank you Shift-Select-Bug.mp4
  5. Steps to reproduce: Create a certain number of objects, for example 5 squares Use the Move tool to drag select, without pressing the Shift key, all the squares While pressing the Shift key, use the Move tool to drag de-select the top 3 objects for example The expected result was a selection with 2 objects, instead everything is deselected. I'm seeing the same behaviour in Photo and Publisher too. Thanks! recordedVideo.mp4
  6. Hi, In the whole 1.8.2 Affinity collection I can't add or remove object to/from already selected objects by shift-dragging the selection marquee. The preference option "Select object when intersects…" doesn't make change. Peter
  7. I apologize in advance if this was addressed before. I couldn't find anyone asking the same thing. I need to select multiple points on a vector object, but I can only do so by doing multiple selections. On PC I'd hold Shift, but on iPad I'm clueless. I could use my case keyboard for that, but I want to know how can one do it without the need of a physical Shift button. Thanks in advance!
  8. Hello everyone! This is another feature request. I'd like to request a feature that lets users of Designer and Photo use tools in a straight way when holding shift. For example, when I want to draw a straight line, holding down shift should draw a line between starting point and current cursor location. This behaviour should be added to other tools as well. If I want to use the "Smudge Brush Tool" or the "Inpainting Brush Tool" in a straight way, there is currently no way of doing so that I'm aware of. Adding shift + alt for snapping to multiples of 45° between starting point and c
  9. Hi all, Would it be possible to add support for Shift key to add a selection for the Marquee tool? We have the Add Mode button over the tool bar but sometimes is much faster to hold Shift and continuing selecting than jumping to the tool bar. And we have the hold right mouse button while adding but that workflow is not ergonomically at all it prompt to mistakes. Moreover, for people with carpal tunnel syndrome (like me) forcing one finger down while trying to click with another finger is a big big no. Cheers, Juan
  10. If you hold down the Shift key when working with certain tools (such as a brush, eraser, or stamp), you can usually draw straight lines - from the position of the last mouse click to the current mouse position. This does not work in Affinity. Here, the line is not drawn from the LAST mouse click, but from any previous (the penultimate?) mouse click. This is very annoying.
  11. Hello, I miss option to move/shift image in lens correction options of develop persona. When I fix rotation and vertical or horizontal distortions, I want to scale image up as less as possible to remove empty areas caused by corrections. And when I scale the image, it can't be moved relative to canvas. Something like shift-x, shift-y would be nice to have. Miro
  12. Hey there, After working on Affinity Designer for a month now. I'm always thrown off by the inconsistency of using shift while scaling an object/text. By default when you scale a text or a group Affinity Designer scales it proportionately without having to hold shift. But if you hold shift you get to do a free form transform on the text or group. However when you select a single object or multiple objects (not group) at once Affinity Designer by default lets you do free form transform. But when you hold shift that changes to scaling it proportionately for a single object or multipl
  13. Hi Affinity, Version 1.6 of the designer works in some areas much better. I am still having some issues, that are really annoying in a quick production workflow: I select several objects within the workspace and move them with SHIFT cursor (left, right, up, down) it works perfectly. BUT: If I select multiple objects in the layers palette I cannot move the objects with SHIFT + cursor down or up, instead it selects more objects in the layers palette. It ist quiet often the case, that I have to select the objects I am trying to move in the layers palette, and then move them
  14. Hi, I made the switch from Adobe Creative Cloud to Affinity Designer and Photo. I don't regret it at all but I'm missing something really useful that neither Affinity Designer nor Photo have. I'm talking about how it's possible to resize from center in Photoshop just by using ALT modifier. Same think about SHIFT modifier to keep aspect ratio. The best is to be able to use those modifier separately or combine. Can you consider adding this? Thank you so much
  15. I'm sure somewhere on this whole forum is a big discussion about Affinity Designer's decision and recounted inconsistencies about how it handles SHIFT + <resize object>. I'm sorry if I've tread into an already well-debated topic with a new thread. While I believe the original Affinity idea and implementation is that proportional resizing is almost always used so it should be the default (therefore SHIFT + <resize object> performs the action non-proportionally). However, I find the implementation across different types of use cases in AD is extraordinarily inconsistent. In f
  16. Does the layer list get activated when the mouse cursor moves above it? If so, what would people like the idea to be able to assign Ctrl, Alt or Shift as modifiers to mouse wheel, to be applied to that list? Functions like: Ctrl+Wheel = Move Selected layer up/down Shift+Wheel = Select layers up/down Alt+Wheel = Change layer transparency/mode Other functions to enable with modifiers could be like: wheel Up = Show layer wheel Down = Hide layer wheel Up = Select widget tabs right wheel down = Select widget tabs left
  17. Hello. I have been using Illustrator regularly since CS2 (~10 years), and I recently purchased Affinity Designer. I'm interested in a dictionary of Illustrator features and workflows done in Designer. I'm willing to pay $$$ for it too. For example: Illustrator anchor point: Designer it is called an X Illustrator outline mode: Designer go to X menu and click Y Illustrator direct selection tool: Designer combination of X tool and Y tool. If you need to select and move one Z Illustrator reflect tool: Designer not a tool, but reflection function, etc... Unreal Engine has some pr
  18. AP keeps proportions locked as long as you scale only one layer (using the handles). Pressing shift unlocks the constraint. Fine so far. As soon as you selct more than one layer, the behavior is inverted. You have to press shift to keep the proportions. Can't be intended, is it?
  19. When I'm in a numeric text field, holding down the Shift key as I tap the arrow keys should increase/decrease the value 10x. (At the moment this key combination acts to select the text before/after the insertion point, which, while standard behavior for text fields, is not the expected behavior for numeric input fields.)
  20. Hello everyone! I've got some questions about shortcuts in Affinity Photo and Designer: 1.: I read that ctrl + shift + tab is supposed to let me jump to the next file. But for whatever reason, this only works sometimes. Is there a different way to jump to the next / previous file? Could I be doing something wrong? 2.: Is there a way to select the layer above / below the currently selected one? I am working on OSX 11.6 using Designer 1.5.1 and Photo 1.5.1. Thanks for any help! Shu
  21. Hey, So in Photoshop you can Ctrl click a layer and use either Alt, Shift, and Alt+Shift (on Windows) to allow the subtracting, adding or selecting the intersection of the current selection. This is really handy for creating masks and composite shapes. I know in Affinity Photo that you can Ctrl click a layer to select the opaque area, but using the keyboard modifiers doesn't seem to do anything else. Is there another way to do what I do in Photoshop in Affinity Photo? Cheers, Mark
  22. Especially with the stroke width slider I would like to constrain the selection to whole numbers, or predefined common values. I guess I am used to Xara where it is a drop-down offering None, 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2, 4 etc. At present I drag and end up with a value like 1.3 which I then have to modify by hand (typing). Perhaps constraining to whole numbers if pressing Shift while dragging? Or do it the opposite way around (like the Zoom slider in Navigator Panel) where there are fixed stops that the slider snaps to, but holding Alt disables the snapping?
  23. As the title suggests, I find the resizing modifier keys inconsistent in both applications. Example: Open Designer Choose a primitive shape and hold down the shift key as you place it on the canvas so it has an aspect ratio of 1:1 Now grab one of the corner handles and shift-drag to resize your object and it retains that aspect. Select Layer -> Rasterize Grab a corner handle of the object and shift-resize it Undo because that's not what you expect to happen Re-grab the corner handle and hold down option instead and it retains aspect ratio. Now grab a side handle and try the same thing. Op
  24. Please consider adding the following behavior: When the user holds down Shift + rotates the canvas, constrain the rotation of the canvas to 15° increments. Thank you of your consideration and lal you do.
  25. I’m sorry that I always bring Fireworks as comparison but its workflow was/is just so convenient. Here is another one: When you had guides shown and the default selection tool (V) selected, pressing the Shift key showed the distance between those guides between which the cursor was placed. I’d love to see that in AD, too.
