Square bracket toggle layers not brush size in german keyboard layout


Recommended Posts

I am using Affinity Photo 2.0 on my Surface Book 3 under Windows 10 Business with german and the american keyboard layout.

While the square bracket for changing the brush size works fine with the american layout ("ü" and "+" on a german keyboard), something weired happens with the german (ALT + 8 and ALT +9). As long there is no layer added, ALT + 8 and ALT +9 works but does not provide visual feedback while changing the size. If some layer are added, ALT + 8 and ALT +9 does toglle between the layer. Changing the brush size with the american layout still worls fine with "ü" and "+" on a german keyboard, even if layers are added.

Hi SatFlex,

same problem here. I think this is a bug and I have reported it two topics below: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/177534-changing-brush-size-with-and-does-not-work-with-german-keyboard-layout-workaround/

As a workaround do this:
Gehe zu (Navigate to): Bearbeiten (Edit) -> Einstellungen (Preferences) ->Tastenkürzel (Keyboard Shortcuts) -> Malpinsel (Paint Brush Tool)
-> Pinselgröße erhöhen (Increase Brush Size): AltGr+8 eintragen (replace)
-> Pinselgröße verringern (Decrease Brush Size): AtltGr+9 eintragen (replace)

Viele Grüße
