I've been using Photoshop for almost 10 years now and I've built quite a muscle memory for the default PS keyboard shortcuts. It's quite a productivity killer and really convoluted to not have these shortcuts on the iPad. Having mostly similar keyboard shortcuts as Photoshop is one of the strong point I thing of the desktop AP app. I use affinity photo for iPad mostly using my smartkeyboard case, so I've got my keyboard handy for most of the time. This makes for a really intuitive workflow for existing PS or affinity on desktop users; using keyboard and Apple pencil and touch to navigate around. Another thing is screen real estate, when you can hide a certain amount of on-screen controll (things you can controll using keyboard shortcuts), you have more productive space for your canvas. These I deem essential: X ;to switch foreground and background colors using the brush [ and ] ; to increase or decrease brush size numeric keys to manipulate opacity cmd + j to dupilicate layers alt + click to sample (for using brush or clone brush etc.) regular letter keys to switch tools (e.g. B for brush, V for move tool) Nice to have: Cmd +i to invert Cmd + alt ; easily control the hardness and size of your brush (this one would work really well on the iPad) Alt + delete/backspace ; fill with foreground (cmd to fill with background) A key or shortcut to toggle fullscreen
