Hi,

I'm often using Affinity to draw with a pen on my windows laptop and the most frustrating part is undoing strokes. When using the laptop as a tablet, the keyboard is folded away and I can't press Ctrl+Z.

While I've read that there's no touch based interface planned, I would love to be able to add shortcuts to some basic actions like undo/redo to the toolbar like this for example:

Actions I would use in the toolbar would be:

  • Undo/Redo
  • Changing selection mode (add to selection, remove from selection, new selection) for objects on the canvas and for layers
  • Grouping selected Layers

Cebbi,

Hello and welcome to the forums. Have you tried leaving the "History Studio" showing (and in a  place where you can easily access it)? That way you can click (or touch I would assume) to the point before you'd like to undo. I hope that helps.

Hi,

yes, I've tried that but it still feels more suitable for applying a specific point in the history than for quickly undoing some steps while drawing. However, it might be more easy to use with a pen if it could be placed horizontally with the slider stretching across the screen.

Buttons would be clicked/touched a few times quickly, and could be placed near the tools, which I personally would find more efficient, as I have one hand near the left side of the screen while drawing to quickly select the tools by touch.
