Can I turn off tool rotation?

Recommended Posts

for as long as this can not be turned off.

you could use Z as modifier key, just press Z and the tool you want.

Well I certainly hope the backing of feature requests on a forum many people seldom visit isn’t their only benchmark for feature request validity. That written, I would have backed the heck out of your feature request.

I think it's a case of the squeaky wheels get the oil. The devs must have a frighteningly long list of requests, so there has to be some way of prioritising things. Three people wanting a change to tool selection probably doesn't register too highly :)

There is no way it’s 3 people. I would bet my life Illustrator users download the demo, get frustrated by some inconsistencies in the UI and tool behaviour, and run away screaming without uttering a peep to anyone.

 

It’s also been a year since I first posted this. So long in fact that when I tweeted Affinity, they actually reminded me I had made these requests before.

That's a good point, no way of knowing how many people it's put off actually purchasing.

 

I can sort of understand the idea behind a quick toggle between tools, I'm baffled as to why it cannot be a separate key for it and the other shortcuts just stick to selecting the assigned tool.

Why not use the modifier Alt +V

This model of tool selection fall flat on its face the moment text is involved.

UP VOTE: add option to disable all tool toggling.
