Make Zoom keyboard shortcut "Z" only active when pressing the key

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to make the zoom keyboard shortcut function in a way that it's only active when pressing and holding the "Z" key on the keyboard?

Same as Figma. This works like a charm and you can immediately continue with what you were doing instead of having to press it again. I'm making quite a lot a mistakes where I press Z to Zoom, but I already was in the Zoom mode (for instance when switching from another app), so I quite the Zoom mode instead of entering it. Anyone else has this too? Maybe it's just because I'm more used to other apps, but still it's nice when apps align neatly and the way Figma (and Sketch) handle this is more natural to me.

Ok just found out it's done with the Alt key + scroll in both Affinity Publisher and Designer.

This actually works for me. More in general curious how Affinity thinks about aligning keyboard shortcuts with other apps. Like the above example, but also the pressing CMD key and so switching temporarily to the Move or Node tool.
