  1. This report is about a bug with the keyboard shortcut CTRL+Left Click. This is how it should work: When you press CTRL + drag, it creates a duplicate of the form, and drags it around. This is a fast way to copy an object. I can hold down CTRL + hold down Left Click, and losen up the CTRL, and drag the duplicate around with me. This is how it currently works: When you press CTRL + drag, it creates a duplicate of the form visually, and drags it around. If you losen up the key CTRL, the copied object disappears, and the original object that was being copied, would now appear to be dragged around. I must hold in the CTRL key all the time, and losen it AFTER I have stopped holding left click on it, in order for the duplicate to be permanent.
  2. Hi guys, thank you for reading this. I would ask you to consider a very smart and intuitive way to navigate the canvas. Illustrator (and also Photoshop with some minor difference) uses the modifier keys Ctrl, Alt, Shift and Space in combination to activate or deactivate certain tools. This solution is very useful and super fast because you do not need to move your fingers over the keyboards and you do not need to hit a key twice to activate/deactivate a tool, but with just 4 keys you can access to all the navigation tools, like pan, zoom, select, and so on. You probably already know what I'm referring about, but I'll add a list of the most common combos (please note that being a combo means also to hold them together while using the tool): Ctrl = Object Selection (or, if Object Selection is active, it triggers Element Selection) Ctrl + Space = Zoom In Ctrl + Space + Alt = Zoom Out Alt = Drag Copy (also after clicking for drag, atm it works just before) If you have to deal with conflicts among other shortcuts, like combos already used for other functions, please contact me and I'll be happy to deal with it. Finding the same interface as the most popular software would have many advantages: - reduce frustration and improve experience using the software - reduce adoption time - triggers interoperability between software (so you can use the same habits while switching from one sw to another...yes, someone still does) - uses a model already spread and tested, based on years of experience I totally understand that this is another software and it's normal to not expect to find the same stuff of the competitors, but this is not the kind of thing that makes AD positively different from its competitors (imho of course); making the transition from one software to another as smooth as possible for as many users as possible I think is more valuable. I and a bunch of other folks would really love to find these combos in the next updates. Thank you for your attention. p.s. dear reader of this topic, please, add here other combos that you would like to have in the future.
  3. Hi everyone, I've found a very annoying bug, where if you move a layer with the arrow keys on the keyboard and then try to ALT + Drag to duplicate, then the layer you dragged the duplicate from jumps back to the location it had before moving it with the arrows. See the attached image to better understand the issue.
  4. Hi guys, Affinity has a really cool feature that allows you to see the exact distance between two objects, by holding Ctrl after selecting an object, and hovering another object, and the distance between those object will be shown. It's a really cool feature, but a feature I don't always use. Is there a way to enable/disable it? Thank you, Chris ps: kudos to the awesome community and to a wonderful app.
  5. Affinity Photo 1.5.2.69 on Windows 7 Service Pack 1 In Raw Development -> "Objektiv" Tab -> Rotation -> fine stepping via Ctrl+Arrow Up stop at -0.7 and can't be continued upwards in fine step mode Reproduce: 1. Open RAW image (I used an image in Olympus ORF Format). 2. In RAW development tool window open objectiv-Tab. 3. In Rotation Num-Edit click arrow down for full step to -1.0° => OK: image is rotated. 4. In Rotation Num-Edit Ctrl-click (fine stepping 0.1) the small arrow up a few times (or hold arrow) => NOK: stepping stops at -0.7°, you can't fine tune upwards beyond -0.7°
  6. Hey guys! :) Just joined this forum and started using the trial of Photo. I am coming (what a surprise) from Photoshop and really miss a option in Photo to configure which button has to be pressed for zooming in with the scroll wheel. I am really used to using the "ALT" button (Im on Windows btw) in pair with the scroll wheel. The standard seems to be a combination of "CTRL + Scroll". Other than that I am really impressed with Photo. My not-so-powerful notebook flies through the program; this wouldn´t be possible with Photoshop. (My gaming PC on the other hand just doesn´t care if its open and running :lol: ) Awesome work! When there is money to spare I will buy this awesome piece of software B)
  7. 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
  8. A lot of art programs like Paint Tool Sai/ Clip Studio use the shortcut combo "CTRL + ALT" and a drag to change your brush size quick and easily. I'm not sure how hard this will be to implement into Photo/Designer; but it would be a really great feature for people looking to freelance with the brush/pen tool and with tools like the Selection brush tool.
  9. 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!

  10. 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
  11. When you hold ctrl and select an object that's grouped together with another object, you select that object instead of the group. This is a great feature, and I use it a lot. When you hold ctrl and drag, you copy and drag the selected object. This feature is also available when you hold alt + drag. Is there a way to disable the ctrl + drag and only use alt + drag? Because I can't seem to stop making copies when I try to select a grouped object.
  12. I am not sure whether this is really a bug or something introduced recently, by design (I´m on El Capitan)? Previously, I could hold down the CTRL key on the keyboard when opening an Affinity application, it would then offer to reset / pick from a list to reset. This has now changed for me, the menu to pick from is populated with a list of recently used, no reset at all anymore. It´s consistent throughout all versions, see the screen prints below. I couldn´t find any kind of (System) preference to set it differently, preferably like it was before. Trying to find out what happened, I checked all applications in my Dock, a few show exactly the same ´feature´. In my case, that´s true for Pages 5.6, Autodesk SketchBook Pro 7.3.1, Pixelmator 3.4 Twist, Xcode 7.0.1... All recently updated. A few show something else, obviously have been designed like that: Safari 9.0 when already open, Messages, FaceTime and System Preferences.
  13. When Alt+Drag to copy an object then Ctrl+Z, the duplicated remain on top of the object. I'm not too sure this is an oversight bug or by design.
