[Fixed] Arrow keys do not work to change font size

Recommended Posts

In Affinity Designer, pressing and (with or without ) in a numerical field increments or decreases the value. This works everywhere but some type-related fields, such as Font Size and Paragraph Leading. Is this a bug, or is it expected behaviour? And if it is expected, what is the rationale behind it?

It doesn’t work, because the numeric input fields you are talking about are combined inputs that feature a numeric input field and a menu fly-out …


Whereas this is the technical reason, I believe these combined input fields should be reworked. You are very right, it is a pain not to be able to scale fonts by using the arrow keys. Please give this request a second thought …  :)
