Hey, I've noticed that when I've been swapping tools using shortcuts in Affinity Photo, the single letter can do multiple things, leading to a cognitive burden as you need to always remember which tool you're on instead of just blindly hitting the key (which makes usability, for me, worse), otherwise the shortcut will do something other than intended based on current context. I know it doesn't sound bad, but I've been constantly pressing "M" for marquee and accidentally changing the marquee type instead of just re-selecting the previous marquee tool (since I was doing some layer moving and forgot that I had previously had the marquee tool selected and had no visual indication on the mouse since I was over the layers). Same with the "V" for the move tool etc... It would be amazing to have an option (if it doesn't exist already) for the shortcut to only select the tool and then use a keyboard modifier + letter to change the tool (and also stop the swapping of tools with the same shortcut). That way every shortcut only does one thing, making muscle memory work a lot better (as no context is needed only the desire for the tool). Aka, Hitting "M" will always without a doubt select the previously used marquee tool. Anyway, this is a subjective issue, but the option to change the behavior to the above would be nice. Cheers, Mark
