Set Rotation Resolution in Preferences

5 posts in this topic

I would like to see the ability to set the Rotation Resolution in Preferences.

My work in Affinity Photo on a PC requires matching elements from different image sources.

I can select the Move Tool and rotate a layer with the mouse, but to get a precise alignment, I've tried the Rotation numeric entry in the Transform window.

It's great to be able to click on the number and use the mouse wheel to change the value, but the 1 degree increments are not precise enough.

I think the ability to select the decimal place resolution in Preferences of 1, 1.0 or 1.00 would be a great enhancement.

Or, another possible enhancement would be to hold down a key while changing the Rotation value to temporarily increase the resolution. Example: Hold left arrow to decrease resolution, hold right arrow to increase.

Thanks for your consideration!

Holding the CTRL key whilst using the up/down arrow keys will increase/decrease rotation in 0.1 steps


Due to the impending Brexit negotiations, punctuation, spelling and grammar will be used sparingly until further notice.

And with SHIFT key is step 10.

Works on every value entry - perfect.

FYI on a mac it is the option (alt) key that allows a 0.1 increment and decrement.

Thanks everyone for your replies.  I've had AP for a month and still learning something new every day!
