Gradient tool shortcut persists

Recommended Posts

Even though I have removed the shortcut "G" from the Gradient tool and assigned it to the Fill tool, I always get the Gradient tool when pressing "G". I then have to press "G" a second time to get the Fill tool.

"G" is not assigned to anything else when I look through the shortcuts.

I have tried removing Affinity Photo and the .plist file found in Preferences without success.

There may be other shortcuts that would cause trouble, but I have not reassigned other tools.

Hi morten a,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

The Fill tool shortcut shouldn't be listed there. This tool "doesn't exist" in Affinity Photo. The Fill Tool entry is pointing to the Gradient Tool because that's how it's called in Affinity Designer - they are the same thing - it shouldn't appear in Photo shortcut's list. I'm passing this to the dev team. Thanks for reporting it.

Thanks for your quick reply! Actually, your answer lead me to fix the issue by correctly assigning the shortcut to "Flood Fill Tool" instead of "Fill Tool". Here's a screenshot if it is of any help.
