Affinity Designer: Redefine keyboard shortcuts for brush size


Recommended Posts

Hello, very short question: on Italian keyboard the "[" and "]" keys don't work. And using the Ctrl-Alt-Drag gesture is not convenient for me. Is it possible to redefine them in Affinity Designer?

Thanks,
     Mario

Hi @Mabian

If you go to Edit > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts, you can select the tool and persona from dropdown menus, then attach the shortcut to another key.

I hope this helps.

This is also explained in the help.

This doesn't help that much actually, I go to redefine the brush size modifiers in pixel -> pixel tool context with "apply to all" checked.
No matter the key I choose it doesn't work in designer persona brushes, while ctrl-alt-drag left/right does.

FWIW, on my Mac I get weird results if I first go to Designer Persona & choose Vector Brush Tool & then switch to Pixel Persona. What happens is it still shows Vector Brush Tool & there is no option for Pixel Tool.

This has been reported before & I believe acknowledged as a bug, but I do not know if it applies to all versions, just the Mac one, or what.

Yes it must be a MAC bug, I don't get that in Windows. There's no Pixel Brush Tool under Designer, and no Vector Brush Tool under Pixel.

On my Mac it doesn't happen every time I open Keyboard preferences in AD & switch to the Pixel Persona but I have not worked out the exact sequence of steps to trigger it.🤷‍♂️
