April

Minor reminder text suggestion

Recommended Posts

When you click on an object with the move tool, it suggests this at the bottom:

 

'xyz' selected.  Drag to move selection. Click another object to select it. Click on an empty area to deselect selection.

 

It would be fantastic if it instead said:

 

'xyz' selected.  Drag to move selection. Click another object to select it. ⌥+Click to select an additional object. Click on an empty area to deselect selection.

 

It took me forever to discover that method of selecting multiple objects, and would have saved me a ton of time when I was first learning Affinity.

 

Thanks so much!

(it would actually probably be nice if the chord was simpler too, like just ⌥+Click to select another object)

Hey April, the standard way to add an object to an existing selection of objects is Shift () + Click … no need to hold down the Option () (Alt) key as well …  :)

Oh hey, you're totally right.  For some reason, I feel like that wasn't working before.  My bad!

 

So scratch my second comment, but it would still be nice to add a bit to the reminder text.  :)
