  1. Since I've already expanded a lot on the subject on my last post, I'll keep it short and to the point: Affinity apps almost completely disregard the macOS system-wide option “Full Keyboard Access: In windows and dialogues, press Tab to move keyboard focus between: All controls”, in the Keyboard prefpane. In fact, they don't even honour the alternative and default “Text boxes and lists only” on all places, which would include the very useful input fields on many different palettes. There are issues on important dialog boxes such as “New Document”, and the only palettes where fields are properly addressable via tabbing are, AFAIK, the Transform palette, and only partially so. Some allow for tabbing between one or two items, and all of them, regardless of the number of fields, drop the user into the “Tab to hide the Studio” behaviour, instead of cycling back to the first field like in Adobe CC. This behaviour is, for lack of a nicer term, undesirable and unintuitive, and I could also reproduce it in the Windows beta of Publisher; seeing how I can also reproduce it in the MAS versions of Photo and Designer, I'm willing to bet that it's also reproducible in the release-quality Windows versions of those as well. I also noticed input field and UI control ordering inconsistencies between the Mac and the Windows versions of Publisher. I am aware that fixing this would require an overhaul (or at least an internal review process) of six different codebases across two different OSes (though the fact that some palettes and dialogues are rather similar across apps, so there should at least be some economies of scale at work there), and introduce further overhead in your development process from now on (because it does indeed require a change in philosophy, as tabbing has up until now been added just as an afterthought and only in the places where we specifically asked for it, instead of everywhere, organically and by default, following a predictable scheme and behaviour), but this is yet another thing which I believe you also must do in order to be taken seriously by design professionals who actually use your apps for UI and UX work; you must lead by example, because many of your users will know a lot about that very subject. For the same reason, Adobe was the butt of all jokes for the better part of a decade on account of their lack of polish and consistency (there's even a Tumblr page called “Adobe Gripes” [formerly “Adobe UI Gripes”] dedicated to their misgivings: https://adobegripes.tumblr.com ), but even they got their act somewhat together as of late (there are still inconsistencies between different apps of their suite, but at least most of these nitty-gritty UX issues are pretty much solved by now). Seeing how you're still in the beginning of your expansion in the market, and only have 3 apps in two platforms to contend with, please take the opportunity to polish all of them before the arguably momentous 1.7 release, which will mark the completeness of the originally announced Affinity 1.x suite. All eyes will be, then and once more, on you, and some reviewers will possibly go through all those details (maybe even making brand-new reviews of the original first two apps), and call them all unpolished or unfinished. I know I would, because that's the way they feel, at least on this major point in particular.
  2. Shortcuts work after a fresh (re-)start of Affinity Designer, but they stop working once I use [AltGr]+[Tab] to switch to/from another Windows application. Resetting the keyboard shortcuts via Preferences does not help as a workaround, I need to restart AD. Version: 1.7.0.188 (Beta) OS: WIndows 10 Pro Probably related:
  3. In Adobe you hold Cmd Space to temporarily access the zoom function. This is a tool I use all the time, it is so useful not to have to come out of a text box, hit Z, zoom, and then go back to the text. Zoom to selection helps a bit but isn't the same. Any chance of a key combo for "temporary" access to the zoom?
  4. As per title, I've found that when setting my own keyboard shortcuts the ( x ) button is covered by the scrollbar if I need to scroll to change/remove the conflicted shortcut. If I move out of the scrollbar area and wait a moment it goes away and I can click the ( x ) button but if I accidentally scroll (easy to do with the Mac's magic mouse) the scrollbar appears again. Below is a little screen capture I made of it in action - I think this could be solved by either moving the button to the left or putting some padding on the right side so it isn't covered by the scrollbar: Preferences.mov
  5. 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
  6. I'm wondering if anybody has done a Affinity-Shortcuts-Cheat-Sheet for Publisher? Or is it too soon with possible changes still to come?
  7. Could it be that Affinity Photo has a bug related to keyboard short cuts when used with the modifier key cmd and German umlauts? For the menu items to rotate the workplace by 15 degrees left, right or reset I defined cmd ö cmd ä and cmd ü (i.e. cmd + umlaut-key on German keyboard for o a u). A strange thing happened: In word-processing like MS Word or Apple’s Texteditor keyboard entries turned sluggish. Some would not show on the screen unless I pushed and held the key for some seconds. Then I got one of two effects. Either the letter suddenly showed up and was typed repeatedly or a popup menu showed up with special characters. When entering in Terminal.app defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false or set in sys-preferences keyboard „repeat of entries“ to „off“ it was fixed for a while but eventually came back. I finally decided to change the keyboard shortcuts in Photo to the number-keys 1 2 3 together with the modifier key ctrl. No problem anymore. Is it possible that Photo’s shortcut prefs call routines which work without problems as long as one uses cmd on a non-German keyboard layout without umlauts? I am using the Affinity Photo 1.6.7 with macOS Sierra on a MacBook Pro Mid 2012
  8. I tried to create some shortcuts for me. In the preferences tab I entered "Command + Alt + Y" for the "Join Curve" command – only to see that is already in use (little warning sign). After chosing a different shortcut I switched back to my document and found that my lines looked weird. I found out, that the "Command + Alt + Y" command changes the view to pixel mode. I guess this could be optimized.
  9. After all these years I am really embarrassed asking this - but are there any keyboard shortcuts for scrolling through layer blend modes or shortcuts for choosing specific modes? I haven't managed to find any. But I can't believe that they aren't there somewhere ............
  10. I’d love to see a keyboard cover for Mac users with all of the shortcuts on them, similar to some that they have for Photoshop and other applications.
  11. more specific context menu entries for each tools and an option to customize the context menu in settings.

    Can't create shortcuts with modifiers

    Hi, I had this problem in the last Beta as well: I can not create new shortcuts with modifier keys in AD latest version! I do NOT have this option checked in the preferences window, so it makes no sense. Shortcuts are very important in my workflow, so not being able to set them up as I require them, is really annoying and costs a lot of time. I hope you have a fix for this bug soon System info: I am using El Capitan on a 2011 iMac
  13. I really like affinity products, and have AP & AD installed on both my Mac and my iPad, but one thing is bugging me a lot: I can not set ANY shortcut key that includes a modifier in either AP or AD on my Mac! I have fiddled with the settings, unchecked ignore modifier, checked it, changed the language of the app... nothing seems to make any difference. If I want to add a shortcut like CMD + Shift * P for Place, it only registers the P The same thing happens when I try to add a shortcut to a character or paragraph style. This is extremely annoying as my workflow relies heavily on shortcuts, they same me a lot of time, but as it is now, I just cannot create the workflow I want in AP or AD. I really hope you can respond to this, as I reported the question before, but no one responded. My system is iMac 2011 with el Capitan
  14. Hello everyone! Today I gave another try to Affinity Photo. There has been some updates.. Shortcuts still does not work properly.. ok. let's wait. A basic function we use everyday in PS is the level layer. We use the clipping (in PS, pressing alt on Mac) to precisely set the value for each channel. It does not seem to work on Affinity.. Also you can not change channel using cmd-2, cmd-3.. like on PS. Any chance it will be implemented ? Regarda
  15. Hi, everybody, first, I want to thank everybody at Affinity for their awesome work. I’m loving my Affinity Photo for iPad, especially when I’m on the go. The biggest thing I’m missing, however, are keyboard shortcuts. Especially these: Cmd, Shift, Alt and Ctrl for manipulating with objects. For example, really often I want to resize object from center holding Cmd key and I’m not able to do that. 10x faster move with Shift+Arrows Shortcuts for (Un)Grouping and other basic stuff Shortcuts to show/hide guides and grid Since many people use their iPad Pros with Smart Keyboard, it would be really nice to have this option. Are there any plans to implement shortcuts in future releases? Thank you.
  16. Hi, I'm new to Affinity, enjoying it a lot, still much to discover. Is there a shortcut to reset the black and white swatches? cheers Geoffrey

    Photoshop Shortcuts / share

    Hello! I'm a pro user of Photoshop since Version 2.0 and I'm very new to affinity. I bought afinity photo to use it for my private artistic work, as Adobe's price policy doesen't fit for private persons and 'poor' artists. I've to say, I love the app for it's price-performance ratio!!!!!!!!!!! Due to the heavy every day usage of the Photoshop in my bread and butter job, the shortcuts are running in my blood. Did somebody take the effort to 'clear' all the affinity shortcuts and apply all the Photoshop shortcuts? If so, would you share it with me? Best, Tom
  18. Hi, I have just purchased and installed Affinity Photo on my iMac (I have also the iPad version), and in Preferences/Shortcuts there are only a few shortcuts. I do not find the shortcuts described in the Affinity Photo Workbook. Is it possible to download the shortcuts as described in the Workbook. Thanks. Christian.

    useful keyboard shortcuts

    I may be coming 'late to the party', but I've found a couple things that have speeded up my workflow which I want to share. Sometimes I want to edit an object but I don't know what layer it is on. Thanks to Serif, I click on the object and then use Ctrl/Cmd + K and the layer becomes selected. Thanks to Carl Surry, I now can use Alt/Option + X to get Black and White. I took his other advice to customize my own shortcuts--although because my hands find Shift easier than Alt/Opt, I used Shift for a modifier key. Now I can create new a new layer or a new mask layer, or get to my most-used Live Filters directly from the keyboard.
  20. I've had a frustrating issue of late...I noticed that every now and then, Designer would stop responding to me even though I could still move layers around with my mouse. I quickly realised that I could type as normal but keyboard shortcuts weren't registering with the program after using alt-tab to switch windows. All shortcuts - save, clipboard, single key shortcuts - stop working and I have to manually save and restart Designer with my mouse to regain normal functionality. It looks like either Designer or Windows isn't registering when the user has Designer back in focus after disabling shortcuts to switch out. It's a weird one, hope someone can help!
  21. Hey guys, This is a bug I found some time ago, and it happens from time to time. Basically, at some point the shortcuts such as Ctrl+1, Ctrl+S, or even the Tab key won't work at all, or they won't work properly. For instance, the Tab key is supposed to make the layers and tools panels dissapear, but when this bug occurs, all it does is highlight the main menu buttons. Ctrl+S, or anything Ctrl+[something] stop working altogether.
  22. I couldn't find a way to set a keyboard shortcut for the following 'most used' blend modes Normal, Multiply, Overlay, Screen/Softlight Photoshop uses a Ctrl+ Shift+ a letter (M, S, F,)
  23. Hi, often I have coworkers on my workstation. They like Affinity Photo but can't get stuff done fast because they only know the shortcuts from Photoshop or other coworkers from Krita. Can you guys put a option in Affinity Photo to switch to Photoshops or Kritas shortcuts fast and back, so my coworkers can get stuff done on my machine too? That would help a lot,
  24. I would like to have a shortcut to select the layer below or above the currently selected layer. In Affinity Photo I was able to create a macro which does exactly that. However, I couldn't find a way to assign a shortcut to this macro. So my wish is to either have: 1) a separate menu item to select a layer below or above the currently selected layer 2) a method to assign shortcuts to individual macros
  25. Keyboard Shortcuts in Win10 for Layer Arrange Funktion don't work! Those are the culprits: Ctrl+] Ctrl+Shift+] Ctrl+[ Ctrl+Shift+[
