[ADs / APh] Improve zoom keyboard shortcuts

Recommended Posts

Hi! A couple of suggestions for the keyboard shortcuts, this is for both Affinity Designer and Photo


  • Activate the Zoom tool with Ctrl + Spacebar (key press order matters here)

Currently pressing Spacebar + Ctrl will activate the zoom, but the inverse key combination will not. I often press these two keys together very fast and I can't reliably activate the Zoom tool.

  • ​Zoom tool shortcut as jump key

Zoom tool should be temporarily activated when you hold down the tool shortcut (the z key), once you let go the previous used tool should be selected again (see how Photoshop does it). It should also be possible to quickly switch to the Move tool by holding down the spacebar key.
