Localized Keyboard Shortcuts

Recommended Posts

Please localize the keyboard shortcuts of your Apps properly. Cmd+[ (move layer down) is easy to access on english keyboard layouts, but with german layout you have to press Cmd+Alt+5. Using the same key position would be nice, like Cmd+Ü in this example.

 

Current shortcut for German layout:

Yes, I know, but I think Affinity should be shipped with optimal shortcuts. 

 

I just realized that my suggested shortcut is not the best choice as ⌘] should then be mapped to ⌘+ which is already used on German keyboards. So doing it like Adobe seems to be the best: ⌘[ → ⌘Ö and ⌘] → ⌘Ä.

 

By the way: In the past Adobe messed or forgot the localized Shortcuts with some Updates. In some versions we couldn't fix it manually as there were bugs with recording shortcuts with umlauts. ;-)

Ah, I see … well, I use a heavily customised shortcut set in Adobe apps too, so I am quite accustomed to adjusting these things myself …  :)
