  1. As many contributors requested, I´m missing a very important shortcut: hitting ESC to release the texttool and have the movetool Its not only to move the box, its because I I must often select a few objects after typing, or to change colors of objects and so on. That is why it is a hindrance that the tool does not switch to the move-tool. Its very easy to locate the ESC-Button and hit it (twice). Its not so easy to search "v" and hit it without an acident. Its a most-requested feature, so please have a look at it (some examples, more in the forum). Thank you!
  2. It would be really nice if we could cancel the Crop tool in Affinity Photo with ESC key on the keyboard. Currently the only way to do this is to click on the "Cancel" button on the top which is slower.
  3. OK, so this is driving me crazy as hell. I use transform panel all the time. And I would expect that when I press Escape key I will return to the workspace. But no - the cursor stays in the field of Transform panel and I have to either click inside the working space to get away. Too cumbersome and strange behaviour. For example I need to change the size of an object - I go to Transform Panel, change the size and then I want to move the object around using keyboard. So after pressing Escape I should be able to go on, but the cursor is still within the transform panel and when I click on keyboard arrows to move the object, its size changes instead... I'm not sure if I'm explaining it right, I hope so. Maybe I can set up this Escape shortcut - but I don't know where exactly... If you can help I will much appreciate it. Thank you.
  4. Its mandatory (for me) to have a quick escape from many functions. So in PS its possible to hit "escape" on the keyboard and the actual transformation/funtion is gone. But not so in affinity photo. :-( Edit: Its built in Filter/Distort/Perspective (translated from the german version), but its not in some other essentials like the named crop-function, mesh-transformation. Please build this nice little feature in all/most functions for the next release. Thank you!
  5. I'm used to hitting 'Escape' to close an active dialog / window. But in the case of the 'Show Character' window it doesn't honor the request. Works fine on all the other windows. Best regards, Rick
  6. Draw something (anything). Create a Symbol from it. Drag a new instance of the Symbol from the Symbol Panel but before releasing the mouse button… Hit Escape key to abort the operation. The mouse pointer changes, but the Symbol is still being dragged around. On release the Symbol is placed. Now try to drag another instance from the Symbol Panel. The Symbol is not dragged, though the mouse pointer does change. On release, no symbol is placed. Now close the document, and start again from #1 You will find that the incorrect behaviour persists. Affinity must be closed and rerun before Symbol dragging returns. Sorry GIF is a bit abrupt, but hope you can see what is happening!
  7. Affinity Designer 1.5.1 Minor nit: Pressing the Escape key should close the About box.
  8. What is the keyboard shortcut to escape using the artistic text tool? I've tried cmd+enter, which works on other applications, but this seems to convert the text to paths. I've also tried repeated hitting the escape which some forums seem to mention, or hitting cmd+d to deselect, but neither of these allow me to escape. My use case is after I type the text I want to move it in its entirety, but to do that I literally have to drag the mouse all the way to the selection tool, then drag all the way back to re-select the text and then be able to move it. it would be much easier to be able to escape, type v for the selection, and move. Thanks to anyone who can help!
