What's the cat tool for? :-)​​​​​​​

Recommended Posts

Hey!

Was playing aroung with the newest beta and found the "cat tool" (also in the stable versions). It's only visible when customizing the tools and can be placed in the tool sidebar. Hmm. I do like cats :-) so thanks for that!

Btw: This made me look also in APhoto and the "customis tool" dialog seems a little bit odd. See screenshot. There are three texts in it making the dialog very big. If I set the app to German (see second screenshot) I am not able to see the reset or close buttons (the three corresponding labels in German are much bigger making the columns very wide I seems).

It seems that the team responsible for coding Photo and Publisher doesn't love cat at all. :)

Not so! There’s a modifier key that you can hold down which will make the cat appear when you click on the little white triangle to display the toolbar flyout. :ph34r:

That's not true - if you go to View -> Customise Tools in every Affinity software you get the cat tool :-)

There is also the option to define a keyboard shortcut for the cat tool :272_cat2:

But in Designer it is in the "Shapes" tool, no need to go to "Customize".
