Button and keyboard shortcut for "Place"

Recommended Posts

I use often the tool "Place" and I see there isn't any button or keyboard shortcut for it.

 

Is it possible to create this?

not sure what was meant by "button" However, what would be nice if one could add tools and one good one would be Place. I looked at Edit>Preferences>Tools but did not see a means to add whereas adding to the Keyboard shortcut is fine as long as one can remember the shortcut lol. I have a good memory -- just short -- like my hair!

Oddly, there is a Place Tool Panel icon available in Designer but not in Photo. It is kind of odd that Designer has one because Place is not really a tool; it is a File command similar to Open.

Scratch my earlier question... or do I take it from the lack of response that it was a stupid question, anyway?

I find that if I drag the place icon from the right it puts the image back to front...if I drag from the left of screen it is the right way.

As a camera club member of many years I must add that I am coming to the view that Affinity Photo, especially with the excellent video tutorials is superb.  And I just love the cost saving over Photoshop!  That's the icing...

Now...if only Serif would add a Browser to rival Bridge.  Please....
