Hey Community, 


bought them programs yesterday. Unfortunately I encountered the same problems I had in the Adobe Cloud:

it's not possible to set mouse buttons as shortcut keys. Anybody knows a workaround for now?

Beside that searching for shortcuts by name and by the shortcut itself would be a very nice gimmick.

Hi Pleb,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
I'm afraid there's no workaround (it's not possible to assign mouse buttons as shortcuts keys).
I'm moving this thread to the Feature requests section as these are not bugs but suggestions/requests for improvements.

Hi, MEB, my bad.

Hmm, ok in this case the only workaround I can think of would be emulating keyboardbuttons per mousebuttonclick e.g. pushing MouseButton5 will be F12 and F12 will set as Undo in Affinity so Alt+Z frees up and can be used for something else. some sort of Key Remapper would be needed. 


Maybe somebody knows a solid programm choice for this purpose. I'll edit my choice as soon as I've decided. 


I would love to see a vivid big community like with blender. Cheers
