I have a question please about width and hardness adjustments in Affinity Photo paint brushes.

I know dragging the cursor side to side changes width, and up and down adjusts hardness. But when I rotate the canvas (as seen under View>Rotate Left or View>Rotate Right) to work on a piece from different angles, the required motions to change brush width & hardness seem to reverse. They don’t remain constant relative to the user once the canvas is rotated.

Is there an option somewhere to keep these motion commands consistent, relative to the user, for any given working angle?

Hey Pntrguy,

Thanks for spotting this. It turns out that we have known about this for a while so I've updated the original bug report with your post.

I'm afraid not :( Hopefully we can see a fix for this in the near future. I apologise for the inconvenience.

Thank you for addressing this, Chris B, and also for the apology! It's ok. As advanced as Affinity Photo is, I realize it's still somewhat a work in progress. I'm very glad this significant issue has been noted, and that you've updated the report. And yes, here's hoping it can be corrected in the near future.

Thanks again!
