Can't change the shortcut key for Paint Brush Tool and Pixel Tool

Recommended Posts

I have read a few threads, but I just want to know if it's still designed not to be able to assign different shortcut for Paint Brush Tool and Pixel Tool on Affinity Designer. Does anyone know? 

It just doesn't make sense to be customizable.

Thank you for your response and sorry for not being clear. My problem is after I use the preference that you showed to assign different shortcut keys for paint brush tool and pixel tool (originally they share the same one "B"). If I close the program and re-open, they will come back to the same shortcut. Somewhere in the forum, I read that's how affinity designed, but it just don't make sense to my head and driving me a bit crazy... cuz sometimes I tap the shortcut too quick and shift to pixel tool, and I use it without noticing it.

This is how I configured it - pixel tool has no shortcut - and this setting is kept permanently. Yours is reset after exiting the program?

Thanks for your reply. Doesn't work at all on mine... I also deleted the Pixel Tool shortcut as you did, but a minute I shut down the program and re-open, it comes back with the same damn shortcut.

Hm. Then it is time for Serif to step in. I can Google quite a few threads about shortcuts not being saved with none of the issues solved. Seems to be Mac only. Mac?

Yeah when I looked up the issue, I encountered them and one of them said actually it was designed that way by the moderator. And Yes it's on my MacBook Pro.

Of course it should remember your custom settings across sessions. And it does on Windows.

Lets see if Serif has some advice.

It is a strange world. Serif designed all Affinity apps mostly for Macs and iPads but my feeling is that the majority of issues are on the Mac. So many reports.

Just wanted to let you know that this has been logged with the developers to be fixed :)
