context sensive RMB context menus please

Recommended Posts

RMB=Right Mouse button

I see that one of the underlying principles in Affinity apps is what is called Context Toolbars (under the Menu bar). This probably works well for many users – but I have to admit that I prefer moving my mouse or pen even less, whenever it makes sense. Obviously I'm a heavy user of keyboard shortcuts – but there's a lot of options which don't really lend themselves for shortcuts.

From Photoshop I'm super used to /spoiled from a wealth of context sensitive RMB menus: For every tool there's a matching RMB menu, which offers a drilldown of exactly the options required in this very second by that very tool.

Affinity apps have context sensitive RMB menus in their dockable editors, but on the canvas there's only one generic RMB context menu – but (looking at Photo right now) most of your tools don't even offer an RMB option at all. When trying out Affinity I can not tell how many times I already right-clicked without any effect... Am I the only one who finds this painful?

Please let me know – are there plans to add context sensitive RMB menus everywhere?

Some samples of Photoshop's RMB menus: 


Context Menu of Photoshop CS 6 Crop tool


That's what you get inside the text tool...


Extremely useful in Photoshop's Brush tool. No equivalent in APhoto.



Also sorely missed: Further options in Free Transform via RMB
