“Toggle UI” and relaunch: have to switch on UI elements manually

Recommended Posts

I often press TAB to hide the UI, then Cmd-0 to show my layout in all its glory.

If I quit Affinity Publisher in this state and open it again later, the UI is still hidden—which makes sense as it’s the last/previous state.

However, if I then hit TAB again, nothing happens. I have to select…

  • Disable “View > Studio > Hide Studio”,
  • “View > Show Context Toolbar”,
  • “View > Show Toolbar”, and
  • “View > Show Tools”

… manually. I always try to remember un-hiding the UI before I quit the app, but I always forget :)


By the way: I can‘t wait to finally buy! You are doing a great job. Thank you!

Yes, this is annoying behaviour which I have noticed in the other affinity apps as well. I hope this can be changed, so using TAB would automatically return the standard interface.

The other unfortunate aspect of the way this is handled is that if you hide it with tab then manually show one thing without first pressing tab to get it back, you need to manually restore all of it.  The previously shown interface components are not restored.
