Hide all handles when moving or nudging?

Recommended Posts

When moving items around (whether dragging with the mouse, or nudging with the arrows on the keyboard) I find it very useful for only the object itself to be visible. Once repositioned, the handles, frame etc can reappear.

Or allowing a toggle or key short to hide handles and edges would help when adding blurs, shadows or any kind of effect where you need to see what you're doing without edges and/or nodes getting in the way. I hope something like this will eventually make it into afd.

+1 for me please! I'd like this for choosing fonts. Those blue handles are useful, but sometime you just want them gone for a minute. I know holding spacebar helps, but this isn't possible when auditioning fonts or effects.

I'm with retrograde.  A Off/On toggle would be great for those times when handles serve no current purpose other than just getting in the way!

Add me to the list of users who want this. Handy when you must see an underlying UV map for texturing 3D objects. Need it in Designer and Photo.

 

PROTIP: Hold space while doing that.

Explain a bit more please.

I’m in Affinity Photo and this problem of persistent visibility of handles around selected objects is actually driving me mad.

 

The space bar trick is not what I want as it gives me the impression of doing yoga with my fingers while doing some other operations.

 

What’s needed here is an OFF/ON switch in the menus with a keyboard shortcut and I just hope that such feature will be included in a next update, real soon, now.

When I try to hide the nodes while moving and I hold the spacebar all I get is the hand and can not move any nodes.
