shortcut to "Reset Rotation" canvas

Recommended Posts



I like to have a shortcut available to reset rotation since it happened many times to me , i design mostly with my MacBook pro on the go, (thanks to your software i can even get work done on my girlfriend's base model 12 inch, god bless you guys for that.) and i rotate the screen accidentally , i'd like a fox for that. i know a bit about US so i suggest 3 ways to approach this issue:


1. Tiny Pop Up button on the side of the screen, to appear whenever the the screen is not adjusted. (this doesn't have to be on AP since thats mostly work done on photo but on the other hand, for experience consistency i would suggest that to be tried at least.)


2. pop up button available on touch bar whenever canvas is rotated.


3. keyboard shortcut.


Thanks guys

Hi Big,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

You can already set a shortcut for this going to Affinity Preferences, Keyboard Shortcuts section, setting the first dropdown to Draw (if you are using Affinity Designer) or to Photo (if you are using Affinity Photo) and setting the second dropdown to View. Then add the shortcut you want in the list below (it follows the same order as the application menus).

You can also disable canvas rotation going to Affinity Preferences, Toos section and removing the tick from Enable Canvas Rotation with Trackpad box.
