I am admittedly a newbie here and this is a newbie question.  I have noticed that sometimes, I get a menu when I right click and sometimes I don't:

Under what circumstances, when I right-click, should I expect to get a menu in Affinity applications?  :|:/o.O

Perhaps we could turn your question on its head and ask under what circumstances you don’t get a context menu when you expect one!

Yay it's zen day :ph34r: lol!

I suppose you get a contact menu when its relevant to the tool or the context menu gives optional facilities. There is also status bar context tool tips, so maybe they can be construed as passive context.

Further information to clarify my feature request for comprehensive right-click menus.

Attached are 6 examples of how Gimp.app handles the right-click context menus.

No matter where you are or what tool you are using in the Gimp app, you can always get all of the toolbar menus by right-clicking without having to "travel" to the top of the screen to access "Edit" or "View" or "Select", etc.

Gimp app is overshadowed by Affinity suite in many ways, but this is 1 area of the Gimp app U.I. that I wish for when using Affinity apps.
