Crop Context Menu has no Apply button

Recommended Posts

Just downloaded and installed Affinity Photo Trial on a fairly new Win 10 laptop.


CROP is unable to work because there is no APPLY button on the Context Menu.


The Context Menu is visible, and seems to have all the appropriate buttons and switches for the Crop function as explained in the Help documentation, except there is no Apply button.


Attached is an image of the context menu as I see it.


I can adjust a crop area, with or without constraints, and rotate it, etc, but there is no way to finalize/accept/confirm/apply the crop. I can only cancel it or choose some other tool.


Perhaps I am misunderstanding where it should be...

... If so, you are in Develop Persona. To apply the crop just double-click inside the crop area.

From a user friendly standpoint, wouldn't it be better if the Status bar mentioned the need to do this? It is not obvious that you have to do this for the crop to be applied.
