Layout problems, in dire need of help

Recommended Posts

So today i opened up Affinity photo after a while of not using the program, i discoved that my brush lists and pallete list is gone (see photo attached), i had to manually add the tools list and top toolbar. but i can not figure out how to add the brush list and pallete options back.

 

If you know any solution feel free to inform me, i could not find any similar forum post

 

Love, Helldesign

My guess is you have accidentally invoked the View menu > Studio submenu "Hide Studio" command, probably by typing its keyboard shortcut. On Macs the default shortcut is Shift + Command + H. On Windows I think it is Shift + Control + H, but if you open the menu it should display whatever the shortcut is on your system.

Yep, that's the one.

Thanks for the confirmation that I guessed right. Since I have not touched a PC for about two decades, I am never sure about the Windows equivalents for Mac keyboard shortcuts. Regarding that, do Windows menus show the assigned shortcuts next to the menu item names like they do on Macs, or otherwise indicate what they are?

They do.

 

What is more, if you assign a keyboard shortcut to something like Place... that shortcut appears in the menu next to it, which I think is rather clever.
