Mac trackpad rotates canvas and can't undo

Recommended Posts

I am working along and using the trackpad to zoom in and out, because its much faster than using the magnifying glass and clicking.

So, all of a sudden, the canvas rotates! the whole thing is now useless, and there is no undo! I lose all the work since my last save because I have to close the document without saving, otherwise, I can't export this for use with a CAD program. I don't even know how it rotates. Please fix this annoying bug! PLEASE< PLEASE< PLEASE!

You can reset the rotation.

  • AFPub: View menu: Rotate: Reset Rotation
  • AP: View Menu: Reset Rotation
  • AD: View Menu: Reset Rotation

If you "right click" on the canvas, the context menu includes "Reset Rotation".  There are also keyboard shortcuts for it (the default seems to be Ctrl-Shift-Cmd R in AP/AD).

You can also disable trackpad rotation in (Affinity) preferences:

Tools: Enable Canvas Rotation with Trackpad.

See here for more information:
