A few small observations

Recommended Posts

Here are some things I noticed in the last beta where I think there's room for improvement. Hope these haven't been discussed already. Many aspects of Affinity are already a joy to use, looking forward to the final product!


- In some inputs, you can scroll the mouse wheel on hover to change the value. I use what Apple call "natural" or inverted scrolling. However, this makes the values in inputs go down when you scroll up and vice versa. This seems backwards... don't know if you can do anything about it?


- Web developers are probably used to typing in hex colours using shorthand: 333 means 333333, 462 means 446622 etc. Typing 333 in Affinity results in 000333--at least for me, doing it the CSS way would make more sense.


- Is there a keyboard shortcut for bringing up the color picker to pick a fill for the current selection? If not, one would be useful.


- Sketch has this feature where you can click-drag an input label to change that value. Very useful for quickly previewing/finding an approximate value.
