Affinity Designer / Photo, Windows 7 x64

Hello Experts,
I have the problem that my hotkeys for enlarging and reducing the brush tip (] and [) only work in Photo.

In Affinity Designer the same hotkeys are defined, but the brush tip does not zoom in / out. I test it in Affinity Designer in Pixel Persona with the paintbrush (B).

Can anyone confirm the problem or has a solution for it? I don't like to use other hotkeys for it.

Those hotkeys work fine for me in AD, Markus.

Thanks for testing, Walt.

Maybe it has to do with the fact, that I have to press and hold the "Alt Gr" Key on my german keyboard, to compose the "[" or "]" character.
Is there a user with a german keyboard layout, who can check this?




I found the cause.

In AD, they have these two hotkeys: Select Next & Select Previous
These technically represent exactly the same keystroke as "[" and "]".
If I delete these two hotkeys, the enlarging/reducing of the brush tip works normally again. :-)
