How to disable Ctrl+G from converting text to group/pixels

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to disable the command CTRL+G from converting Text to a Group / Curves?

 

I sometimes unconsciously use this command and see my text convert to paths, and had to redo them later on. 

 

Thanks!

You did not say which Affinity app you are using but for both the basic procedure is the same: open app preferences, select the Keyboard Shortcuts section, & in the appropriate persona & menu section (Draw > Layer for Affinity Designer & Photo > Arrange for Affinity Photo) & delete the entry for Group (or change it to something else).


Affinity Photo 1.8.3, Affinity Designer 1.8.3, Affinity Publisher 1.8.3; macOS Mojave 10.14.6 iMac (27-inch, Late 2012); 2.9GHz i5 CPU; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M; 8GB RAM
Affinity Photo 
1.8.3.180 & Affinity Designer 1.8.3.2 for iPad; 6th Generation iPad 32 GB; Apple Pencil; iPadOS 13.3.1

How would grouping make text curves? It should stay editable. Are you sure you are not using control-enter which indeed makes curves?

Sorry I forgot to mention it's for Affinity Photo, and it's Command+Enter also...

 

It converts the text to curves, separated by letters, and put it in one group.

Ok, I'll fiddle with my preference settings. Thanks guys
