Toggle zoom with CTRL+SPACEBAR too

Recommended Posts

Currently to toggle zoom you need to press SPACEBAR+CTRL in exactly this order. However, sometimes I press CTRL before SPACEBAR and I end up accidentally painting over my document instead of zooming. It would be immensely helpful if we could toggle zoom irrespective of the order we press the CTRL and SPACEBAR keys.

+1 for me.

I can't use buttons and shortcuts on my wacom tablet : CTRL+SPACEBAR is possible, but SPACEBAR+CTRL is not possible.

It's very annoying. Please Serif, change it quickly.

Yep...I just can't get in the habit of hitting "Spacebar" first, the idea of a modifier key (CTRL/ALT/SHIFT) is to modify the function of another key, not the other way around. I can't think of another application that would do it this way (for obvious reasons, you don't want to "type a character", you want to "perform a shortcut function"). I think this is another example of a general "backwardness"  in Affinity apps - e.g. showing "after/before" previews (not before/after left to right), gamma values slider getting darker to the right and so on. I'm sure there are more examples but I forget. I find it hard to imagine this idea being floated at any UI design meeting and not getting slammed immediately, which suggests a lot of these design decisions are a single coder working late shifts to avoid human contact....
