[AP] Is a Live Rotate tool in the works?

Recommended Posts

At risk of touching upon a topic already resolved, I can't stress enough how important Live Rotate is to satisfy the workflows of professional illustrators who might be reluctant to fully leave Photoshop. Is a Live Rotate tool being considered for Affinity Photo? If so, then fantastic!

 

Gotta have Live Rotate. I want to hit that 'R' key and start spinning the canvas; it's the only way to get in the workflow pocket so to speak.

It's in there but you have to buy an Apple Trackpad. Trackballs aren't supported (yet).

You can step by percentage by setting up a custom key combo. I did that and I keep forgetting it. I'd rather just set up like SHIFT+CMD and rotate the ball/wacom wheel though.

 

Right now you can do it via the 'view' menu, Rotate left/right/reset.

Forgive me for just pointing to Photoshop as the precedent that we all want to (or at least speaking personally, I want to) get unyoked from, but what I'm referring to is how you can just hit 'R' in Photoshop and rotate the canvas any arbitrary amount. Essentially R + LClick does the live rotate, and I hope AP can add this feature as it is essential for painterly illustration work.
