Set brush opacity and flow with an Affinity Photo action

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to set brush opacity + brush flow with an Affinity Photo action or with a keyboard shortcut? 

This enables a quicker workflow if one can just toggle between e.g. 20% opacity 20% flow and then go back to 100% opacity 100% flow without having to change it every time manually. 

Thank you for your advice how to do this or to take the time to add it to your feature request list.

Hi miss_c :)

Unfortunately there's no Flow shortcut that I'm aware of, however you can use Opacity Quick Keys to change the opacity of your brush on the fly.

To use this, please press a numerical key, or two numerical keys in quick succession, to set the opacity. For example:

Press 4 for 40% opacity.
Press 0 for 100% opacity.
Press 4 then 5 for 45% opacity.
Press 0 then 7 for 7% opacity.

I hope this helps!
