keyboard shortcut for alignment

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am a heavy user of the alignment options (see pic).

I find the number of mouse moves and clicks is slowing my workflow down.

Can I assign presets to keyboard shortcuts? If so, how?

 

I want to select a bunch of objects and press the key combination for them to be aligned according to the preset.

Don't think so but the top Toolbar can have one click custom "alignment" icons added to it.

I think there are 14 in Designer and 9 available in Photo


Due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, punctuation, spelling and grammar will be used sparingly until further notice.

Well, when you have multiple objects selected you already get these.

Affinity is also generally good with auto-spacing things with snaps + guides so I don't often end up using the Even Distribution alignment tool.

Custom alignment icons? I'd be curious to know how to do that.
