  1. During configuration of shortcuts to use a Wacom dial to rotate canvas I found this issue: * In the settings shortcuts panel both left and right Alt-keys on the keyboard are displayed as 'Alt', so there is no way to see the difference between the two * But the actual keyboard shortcut is in reality indeed bound to the left OR the right Alt key. Looking in the interface it looks like both 'Rotate Left' and 'Rotate Right' are bound to the same shortcut (Alt+2), but in fact the first one is bound to AltLeft-2 and the second to AltRight+2. Affinity Photo knows this, because it doesn't show warning symbols to indicate a keyboard shortcut is already in use (it shows the regular clear-buttons): This is confusing and error-prone. It would be better if the interface shows AltRight and AltLeft instead for the alt-keys OR the software should treat both ALT-keys as the same (which I personally prefer and would expect). (I posted this in the Photo AND Publisher beta bug forums too, because it's happening in all three programs. It's probably the same codebase, but just to be sure posted this in all three forums)
  2. Same bug as in Photo. It's impossible to assign the shortcut "ALT + BACKSPACE" or "CTRL + BACKSPACE" to anything. The software just refuses to acknowledge the BACKSPACE when you press it on the keyboard. I double checked the Mac Os version, just to be sure, and it works as expected. No problems at all at assigning the shortcut there. Thank you
  3. It's impossible to assign the shortcut "ALT + BACKSPACE" or "CTRL + BACKSPACE" to anything. The software just refuses to acknowledge the BACKSPACE when you press it on the keyboard. I have tried, of course, removing the same shortcut (ALT + BACKSPACE) from the "Inpaint" tool (which is predefined by default), and then assigning to anything else (Fill with foreground colour in my case). Nothing, it just doesn't work. I double checked the Mac Os version, just to be sure, and it works as expected. No problems at all at assigning the shortcut there. Thank you

  5. I really loved how Affinity Designer for the iPad is designed very intuitively for touch. But it would be much better if there would be better keyboard support like having more keyboard shortcuts or customizable keyboard shortcuts. Also having support for modifier keys like holding alt/opt for maintaining aspect ratio when resizing an image. Or holding space to drag an object or pan the screen. Thanks!

  7. I'd like to change the keyboard shortcuts for how I cycle through tabs. I've been looking for a way to change the keyboard shortcut for it within the app but I haven't found it yet. Am I missing it somewhere? Perhaps it's called something I didn't expect?
  8. Just a few days ago all of the keyboard zoom controls (hot keys, shortcuts) just stopped in Affinity Photo. Despite running a repair, and a complete uninstall and reinstall they still do not work. However those do work in Affinity Designer and Publisher. All programs are latest versions. System is Win 7 Ultimate with all latest updates. Is it possible there is a fix for this? Could this have something to do with the recent MS .Net Framework update?
  9. On my US keyboard, the key to the left of 1 is the `/~ key. Unmodified, the character is `. With Shift, the character is ~. I'll use `/~ to describe the key itself. The keyboard shortcut for Shift to Next View is, by default, CMD+`. When I press the CMD+`/~ keys nothing happens. When I press SHIFT+CMD+`/~ I get the correct response. When I change the keyboard shortcut to SHIFT+CMD+~, the opposite occurs. Pressing CMD+`/~ then produces the desired result. I know sometimes third party software could override some global key commands but I haven't noticed any other key commands not working. For instance, CMD+S will Save and CMD+SHIFT+S with Save As.
  10. Hi, is the information in the Affinity Workbooks applicable for the iPad versions of Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo? Also, are keyboard shortcuts compatible if I attached a keyboard to my iPad? Thanks
  11. In the Keyboard shortcuts editor you can assign shortcuts to a selection of menu items. I think all menu items should be selectable. For example, the Text menu has the useful item 'Toggle unicode'. But that could be made so much more useful if we could assign a shortcut to it. P.
  12. I am using AP for painting (or trying :-) ) with a tablet. It would be very useful to be able to map a keyboard shortcut for the function of increasing/decreasing the saturation of the current colour and the function of increasing/decreasing its brightness. It would be nice to give the possibility of determining percentage step for which change is to be made after pressing this key combination. Another important thing is the possibility of enlarging the colour wheel (and other colour pickers) or adding a tool palette with a larger colour wheel. Currently, it is impossible to enlarge it. Choosing colours is inconvenient and not very precise.
  13. This Affinity Spotlight article has PDFs and souce files for the latest Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo Desktop keyboard shortcuts. https://affinityspotlight.com/article/downloadable-affinity-keyboard-shortcut-cheat-sheets/ It is part of the Learning category that compliment the video tutorials
  14. Add ability to fast keyboard search by filter field.
  15. I'm not sure whether this is "by design" or just a bug, but... When setting a custom keyboard shortcut for alignment (e.g. Alt+Cmd+B for aligment to Bottom), the alignment itself is applied always with respect to selection bounds. However, in the alignment settings pane, the "Align to" option is set so as the alignment reflects "First selected" element. I think the keyboard shortcuts for alignment should also reflect this setting. Thanks for looking into this when there's a spare time
  16. A great workflow helper for keyboard driven work in Photoshop is what I know as sticky keys – but it works different from the Windows accessibility feature with the same name... If anyone knows a better name – please comment. The principle is simple but powerful and doesn't get into the way of anyone who doesn't want to use this feature: Pressing and releasing the E key from say the brush tool will switch to the Erazer tool permanently, just as usual. If one however presses and keeps holding down the E-Key one can quickly eraze some strokes. Letting go the E key automatically switches back to the brush tool. The principle is similar to the way Panning via Spacebar is hooked up already – on release the previous tool gets re-activated. The same principle might be useful for Designer and Publisher as well (Adobe uses it in AI and ID too).
  17. Please, please, please, gives us the w shortcut to toggle the Preview Mode. I tried to change the shortcut in MacOSX Keyboard panel but it doesn't allow single letter shortcuts : ( It's so ingrained in me that having to hit a key combination just for that slows me dow considerably. I'm designing a simple 20 page brochure and will send it to print. After that I'll give more feedback. Thanks!
  18. You can not create a keyboard shortcut for the colour picker tool in this version. In other Affinity programs, this can be done.
  19. Just as the title says. I can usually reproduce this bug by opening a lot of documents at once, or even just one document that is resource intensive (lots of large, high quality images).This is a very annoying bug, as sometimes I use the keyboard shortcut to save my work, and I then don't realize that the keyboard isn't working. The only way I've found to fix it is to save manually and then restart the program, and then be careful about how much I'm asking the program to process at once. Please fix, valiant programmers.
  20. Hi, I'm new to AP and have a quick question that may have an obvious answer I've missed. I'm working on a bunch of photos with a basic workflow that includes adding Dust & Scratches Live Filter Layer then doing some inpainting to tidy things up. I'm constantly trying to inpaint onto the dust and scratches layer which obviously has no effect. Then I mouse over to the layers tab, choose the background layer and start inpainting properly. Is there a way to swap the focus between one layer and another from the keyboard, or to toggle the focus through all layers from the keyboard, rather than having to click on the layers tab? Thanks, David
  21. Hi guys. Maybe this has been mentioned before elsewhere, but I find the Tab shortcut behaviour on the Transform panel to be complete nonsense. The field selection order shouldn't be an absurd from left to right, top to bottom (i.e. X position > Width > Y Position > Height), but instead a more logical from top to bottom, left to right (i.e. X position > Y position > Width > Height). The way it is, it feels a bit broken whenever you feel the need to manually input values. And it should't take you more than changing a line or two of code to fix it, so… maybe you could do that for the next release? Thanks! Edit #1: Even though the “constrain proportions” link-thingy button is, indeed, selectable via tab (and, very logically so if I may add, after all the others), I just noticed that the Rotate and Skew fields aren't. Also, having the “Tab to hide the Studio” shortcut activated instead of cycling from the last field back to the first one doesn't make much sense and isn't very friendly, IMHO. Edit #2: I've just noticed another thing: In fact, the Rotate and Skew fields are indeed selectable via Tab. And you can tab from the Skew field to… the X position field?? This means that even though those two fields are visually on the bottom part of the panel, if we consider the whole “Tab to hide the Studio” thing, they seem to be coded as if they were on top. Which actually makes it a bug/error/oversight on your part, oopsy-daisy. But the best solution would be to not only change the ordering and getting rid of that cycle-breaking behaviour; that way, it wouldn't really make any difference. Edit #3: It gets even weirder still. If you press Shift-Tab instead of Tab, you can infinitely cycle backwards (as it should be, anyway) through the panel fields… So, did you actually hard-code that break when tabbing regularly on purpose?
  22. Hello, I am wondering if there is a keyboard shortcut or a way to assign one to take brush settings back to a specified default. When in the basic brush set it is fine resizing with the square bracket keys and changing flow and opacity, but the issue for me is when I am working with a custom brush set and want to go back to the basic brush set, it takes a while to go to the brush palette and then switch back and forth. I have a lot of brush set categories and custom brushes and it would speed up my workflow if there were a quick way to toggle between the last used brush sets. On another note, changing the opacity of the brush is nice and easy with the number keys and or the sliders in the top toolbar. I find though that I change flow more often than opacity and am wondering if there was a way to reassign the number keys to change flow rather than opacity. Thank you!
  23. Hi! (First THANK YOU for affinity photo - one of my life happiest day was to uninstall photoshop) When I customize the move tool shortcut key to CTRL-t the move tool shortcut afterward is T tried : save shortcut keys load shortcut keys reboot affinity photo clear all and rince & repeat previous steps nothing seems to change the shortcut from T to CTRL-t (see attached screeenshot) Note that the shortcut ctrl-T is actually displaying in the keyboard shortcut UI - so it does record my change, saves and load it, it just doesnt change the actual shortcut. UPDATE : I've even tried for testing remapping the key "a" to "T" with the freeware autohotkey : works everywhere : pressing the key "a" outputs the key "T" in all softwares ive tried BUT AFFINITY PHOTO ?????? ...im lost here... Regards, Remi Turcotte
  24. Hello, I have been working with several documents opened under Affinity Designer. After a few minute of work ( i.e. 15-30minutes ), Designer did not recognize any of the keyboard shortcuts. Once I close all the documents and restart Designer, everything works normally: shortcuts are recognized for a few minutes and again the same issue. But I can select the tool and options by mouse clicks. I am using Affinity Designer 1.6.1.93 under Windows 10 Home x64. I suppose this is a bug. Please take a look at it. Thanks!
  25. hello, it would be nice if you can change the behavior of the keyboard shortcuts for the toolbar. i often switch from paint brush tool to inpainting brush tool. i press b for paint brush and AP will select the paint brush tool. then i press j and AP will select the healing brush tool, but before i selected the inainting brush tool. it would be nice when AP remember the last selected tool if there are more then 1 tool to choose from. thanks michael
