New hotkeys and better workflow for digital art, please

Recommended Posts

I'm still trying to set Affinity to my go-to app for digital art, but some essential things are pulling me back, making me go back to Krita or Paintstorm Studio:


- A single hotkey to toggle show/hide layer (it's dumb to have 2 different keys for doing this)

- A single hotkey to toggle lock/unlock layer (same as before, a single key instead of 2!)

- A single hotkey to toggle group/ungroup (again, if some element is alone, press to group. If it's grouped, then press again to ungroup)

- Define custom hotkeys for brushes (so we can change the selected brush on the fly, this is a must. An example for this is changing between different brush sizes)

- Hotkey for toggle brush lock alpha option

- I don't want to make another post for this, but, it's SO annoying that the brush selection highlight is gone after changing the size or switching tools... Idk if this is a bug, but this need to be addressed as soon as possible I think. I believe it's a bug or a missing feature, but please solve this.

- Brushes panel doesn't even have labels for the brushes (besides the tooltip when mouse hover, but this is unconfortable).


That's all for now. These changes will make Affinity A LOT better for digital artists, it will definitely improve the workflow. Thanks and forgive if any mistakes, english isn't my first language.
