Hi guys,

What have I done?! Suddenly I can't resize from the center when using the crop tool in Affinity Photo?...

I hold down cmd+drag from the corner but it does not resize from the center as expected. I am pretty sure it used to do that.

If I press cmd before grabbing the corner handle it uses the straighten tool...

How do I get it to resize from the center?

I've not known it do that. I know in PS you can use Option to size from the centre and Option + Shift keeps aspect ratio but Not seen Affinity Photo do this.

No me neither, seems to be an unnecessary omission.

Perhaps you were using a shape to clip the image? Those you can resize from the centre by holding the Command key on Mac. I don't ever recall being able to do so with the crop tool which is a weird limitation for it.
