  1. Hey there fellow Affinity Photo and Designer folks...... Just wanted to share with you something we created for a student...they requested and infographic on we created the attached pdf. if you are into shortcuts, we took the most used from each emnu and sorted them out in a way that made sense to us......not rocket science , just a nice tool for you to use Keep creating Jeremy Hazel
  2. Hello, There is one fabulously useful (and little known) keyboard shortcut in Photoshop to adjust brush size and hardness: you press Alt (on PCs), right-click your mouse, and drag the mouse left to right to increase/decrease brush size, and up and down to increase/decrease hardness. I use it all the time. This shortcut does not seem to exist in Photo 1.6, and I cannot seem to find a way to replicate it. Any ideas how to implement it, or should we suggest it for a future version? Thanks very much. EDIT: this shortcut applies regardless of the tool you use, as long as it is brush-based, e.g. it works with the Dodge tool as well as with the Paintbrush.
  3. Good afternoon, Is there a keyboard shortcut to close all the photo at once. For one photo I use CMD W. But this does only works for one photo. Regards, Maarten
  4. Hi Serife team, I am sure this can be done.. when trying to aply new shortcuts i sometimes get a warning, that this shortcut allready is used... but... (maybe i am missing something) i wont get any informtion for what it allready is used.. so i would like to know what it is allreay used for. and get an option to remove the other shortcut if wished, and straigt after this the option to enter a new one for the removed if asked.. greetings
  5. I'm become crazy by a stupid simple task: How to delete something in an selection? I've selected an area (Rect selection) that i want to delete. Then i press the delete key, but it deletes the complete layer!? I've searched in the Edit- and the Selection-Menu, but nothing. Then i use the help to search for delete, and it finds just the Delete Layer command? Searching for that term in google shows me al lot of impressive tricks, but not how to delete the content inside a simple selection. So i switched to Pixelmator to do that in two seconds... - But that's insane, for such a basic function. Where did you hide the simple delete function?
  6. In certain circumstances the preferences allow the setting of keyboard shortcuts that don't make sense, or clash with existing shortcuts without giving a warning. Two examples I found this evening… Setting Zoom 100%, 200% 400% etc to the keys 1, 2, 4 with no modifier is accepted without warning that this clashes with the global transparency shortcut, which already uses the digits 0 through 9. Setting Geometry > Add, Subtract etc to the keys Alt + 1, Alt + 2 etc is accepted without warning that this will always create compounds, since Alt is already reserved as an additional modifier for these geometry operations. Also (since I am talking about keyboard shortcuts) please can I bump these earlier requests… Pen Tool Mode Selection Shortcut Search Keyboard Shortcuts Make Numeric Keypad Distinct From Digits <-allows for 16 new keys + modifiers!! Thanks.
  7. I haven't been using Affinity Designer for a while. I updated AD recently and for some reason i found an issue with my custom shortcuts. I had made a shortcut for "Studio > Asset" on the previous version. I went to preference to make shortcut for asset again. It seems the "asset" option is missing from "preference > keyboard shortcuts". Was the shortcut option for asset removed or did i just forget how it is done?
  8. I would really like the ability to change the mode of the Pen Tool via the keyboard. I was switching between curves, lines and polygons today, and having to jump up to the toolbar every time was driving me nuts! Thanks
  9. I'm a brand new potential user who's currently trialling Affinity Photo. I like a lot of what I see, but have two key features I am looking for. I've done some online research, but cannot find clear answers. Is there any way to have a layer mask displayed as an overlay (e.g. semi-transparent red). I know I can use the quick mask feature, but would love to be able to just paint directly onto a blank layer mask and then check for missed patches using a red overlay. Can this be done? I have seen some references to brush size and hardness being adjustable using CTRL+ALT and then dragging the mouse, but I can't replicate this with either left click (goes to colour picker) or right click (does nothing). I know I can adjust the brush size with [ and ], but really like the size and hardness adjustment to be in the same motion. Is this possible? I'm really hoping to move from Photoshop to Affinity Photo, but would need to find a good workaround for the above to not have it significantly affect my efficiency.
  10. Hi, I made the switch from Adobe Creative Cloud to Affinity Designer and Photo. I don't regret it at all but I'm missing something really useful that neither Affinity Designer nor Photo have. I'm talking about how it's possible to resize from center in Photoshop just by using ALT modifier. Same think about SHIFT modifier to keep aspect ratio. The best is to be able to use those modifier separately or combine. Can you consider adding this? Thank you so much
  11. I read that the windows shortcut for brush size and hardness are holding Alt + Right Mouse Button and then dragging left/right or up/down. However this is not working for me. Am I doing something wrong?
  12. Hi, how can I please easily adjust Opacity and Hardness with tablet (Wacom Intuos Pro)? I would like to have on the wheel not only Brush Size (by [ ]), but also Opacity and Hardness of the brush.... If it was possible to set Keyboard Shortcuts for Opacity and Hardness, it would be OK, but in the shortcuts there is only the size Thanks Jindra
  13. Well in Affinity theres one very important shortcut missing, which would improve working speed a lot. I Talk about the possibilty in the layers menue to strg+lmb klick on a layer mask and select the mask, but not to be able as in photoshop, to "shift"+"strg"+lmb. klick several masks or layer one after the other to select increadibly fast all the stuff you need and get a additive pixelselection.. of course as already discussed you could save the different masks in the channels tab, and ad them (this is by far slower then the shortcut approach) or, as a workaround, create a new pixellayer on top, strg+lmb klick the layer you want the pixelselection from in the layers tab, the new pixellayer stil selected and just press shift+f5. this would give you a new window to decide how to fill the selection.. Well.. is there a way to just fill in the frontcolor of your colors, or white or black without every time to tell the programm... yes. take the color.. just one shortcut without the need to confirm that realy you need the color.. would improve much the workaround.. thanks
  14. Hi, and again a question of my team. When using the selecting tools in "add" mode, i easily can use the alt key to substract from the selection... is there also a shortcut, to switch over to intersectionmode of the new and the old selection ? thanks
  15. Hi everyone, it was a question of my team, when using Macros, can i aply them to individual Shortcuts ? It would be very handy.. and in Photoshop its allready possible . thanks
  16. Hi there, Would anybody else find it useful to have a key command to hide all vector outlines & nodes (& bounding boxes too) without deselecting the item, nor changing tools? It's easier to judge your final result without the distraction of the "back-room mechanics" on top of your stroke. I remember using that kind of Hide command back in Adobe days. Just pressing Spacebar for a momentary Hand tool _almost_ does the trick. But not if you're adjusting the item's stroke or brush or layer fx properties in a dialog – then Spacebar doesn't work. So you have to judge your adjustments with the nodes & outlines obscuring your edges (with Pen or Node tool selected, at least). And if you switch to a different tool that hides outlines & bounding box, then your pen or node tool parameter ribbon goes away. All these issues would be resolved with an additional View ->View Mode: Artwork/Result Only. Thanks in advance for considering it!
  17. Hello guys! You know that in PS we are using Ctrl / Alt + Space bur to control Zoom in or out. Do you've any keyboard shortcut there in Affinity to control Zoom tool? Thanks in advance.
  18. Apologies if this has come up before but Affinity's Twitter support suggested I post this here; Essentially I'm proposing a customisable palette/window/whatever that docks left or right that you can populate with whatever shortcut keys you find most productive. Big hit-friendly keys for your non-drawing hand, to quickly switch tools, hold 'shift' etc. I have previously used Wacom devices which obviously have actual keys, and also TabletPro on a Surface which is a Windows standalone sort of version of this (see attached image). I just think it would be very useful for those (like me) looking to increase productivity.
  19. Is there a quick shortcut key/combination I can push to expand/collapse all layers?
  20. Hi, I just started using Affinity Designer at work and I love it so far. One of the features that will really come in handy is to collapse all artboards with one shortcut key. I usually end up with several artboards in an Affinity Designer file and it gets pretty annoying to navigate through layers on top of layers. So please add this feature to the next rollout of the app. Thanks!
  21. Hello, could be extremely usefull (and near mandatory to work fluently) to have a shortcut to quickly modify brush flow, or to change pixel brushs maybe. scenario: im drawing, im using a lot the finger tool, and sometimes there is small details i need to work with, that need a lot of flow, and other times i just want to melt a bit the colors, so i need a lot less. and i got to change a lot and a lot for my workflow, so having it at top left corner makes it a hell to use. go in the top left corner, modify, test if its ok, if its nto go back with mouse in top left corner... you get crazy in 5 minutes.
  22. Hello, im playing around with the pixel personna of affinity designer, i wonder if i could in any way change the "flux" (i got french version i hope its the correct name), by using only keyboard or keyboard + mouse? because its really frustrating, with the finger tool when you cant change flux (for now i got to go in the upper left corner which is the farest thing on universe from the part i am drawing)
  23. Hi there, maybe I'm just blind, but I'm missing shortcut to jump to the next or previous brush in the brushes studio (suggestion: , and .). I'm also missing simple keyboard shortcuts for decreasing and increasing the brush hardness like the shortcuts [ and ] for the brush size. My suggestion would be Shift+[ and Shift+]. Greetz, Tekl
  24. hello, i wish an option to stop cycling between actual and last tool i used when i press the same shorcut twice or more... for example, if i press V, then A, then press A again, it goes back to the V tool, this is very annoying for me... if this already exist i couldn't find. thank you for the attention
