Keyboard shortcut and multi-select for placing files

Recommended Posts

I’d like Affinity apps to have a keyboard shortcut for the “Place…” tool.


When I’m using InDesign for page layouts, I often have to place a large number of files in the document, and the Cmd+D keyboard shortcut really comes in handy for that as it saves having to navigate up to the menu bar each time.


However it really bugs me that this isn’t consistent between different Adobe apps – some have a different shortcut for it, while others simply lack the function entirely.


As Affinity apps are designed to be interoperable, and since placing files is already a feature in both Designer and Photo it would make sense to give this tool a consistent keyboard shortcut between the apps.


Having the ability to select multiple files to place at once while in the Finder modal window (again similar to InDesign) would also help massively.
