How to use Dial in Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I haven't really found a recent or working answer on this issue using search. The changelogs for the most recent versions of Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer mention an improved Microsoft Dial support. However, I am not able to use the Dial in either programme, at all. How can I get it to work? I'd be really happy for a clarification on this issue (note: I am using the "normal" versions of both, not the store version, and I hope that Dial is supported in these as well).

Thanks!

Hi sebsc,

We don't have any tutorials available showing the dial being used. Currently it needs to be enabled in Preferences > Tools > Enable Radial Controller support. It's still experimental but supports some brush properties (Width, Hardness, Opacity, etc), canvas rotation, radial blur, and history.

Awesome, thank you very much! Dial works now, and I really like how it is used thus far. I did check the preferences before, but I must admit I totally overlooked that option. Again, thanks!
