Ctrl+Shift for selection in layers panel not working

Recommended Posts

In Affinity Designer, when holding Ctrl+Shift when selecting a layer in the layers panel, the Shift modifier to select a range of items is ignored. It is thus not possible to select a range of items, starting from the last item that was selected with Ctrl.

Hi Jimmini,

I don't believe this has ever been possible in Designer. I've just tried it in and the behaviour is the same. I'll pass it on to development to see if they can improve this.

Alt+Shift+Click will select a range of layers in the Layers panel, and I believe that's the way that 1.6 worked, too.

It's inconsistent with the standard Windows handling, but perhaps consistent with Mac?
