Shorcut to fill a selection (PS: ALT + Delete)

Hi! I've got the same issue over here. I can set it as a setting.

Ctrl delete will fill with the secondary color

but 

Alt delete (set up to fill with the primary color) just won't work. I tried with the left alt keyboard key as well as with the right keyboard key. 

No conflict triangle but just no reaction in Affinity Photo.

 

Anybody else here having this issue? Is there any workaround? 

Thank you!

I've now shift delete and it works. But hopefully there is a solution with alt delete.

I'm on an a MacBook Pro and I couldn't get ⌘⌫ (command + delete) nor ⌥⌫ (option + delete) to fill. Instead it would delete a layer.

So I opted for the closest key in proximity to delete, which is the backslash (\) key. Now I have ⌘\ to fill with foreground color and ⌥\ to fill with background color. It's only one key away, so for me it should be good for the time being. I would still prefer the same keystrokes as Photoshop.

How come this thread dates back to 2015 and the shortcut that seems like it would be 5 minutes of code still hasn't been implemented? lol

I am trying to convert from PS for two weeks now and there's a few niggles in workflow speed. I'm down to 75 days left on my 90 day trial and lack of this hotkey would probably sway me to stick with PS sorry to say. I do love how Affinity Photo feels more native in performance than what PS has degraded too over the last few years but workflow speed is workflow speed. If I can flow with my jobs effortlessly then I do a better job. Being forced to spend more time and clicks doing something so simple causes disruption to my flow. 

This thread has so much support for this hotkey lol. And not wanting to sound arrogant but seeing a staff member comment very early on back in 2015 and still not resolving this issue doesn't give me the best impression for further "feature" development. Take this as constructive criticism from someone using this software for 2 weeks professionally (5-8 hours a day heavy usage coming from a 19 year profession in using photo editing software). I know your strongest marketing point is Price and that's great but what about those who can afford PS for life too? Gotta hook me with something even if it's as small as a hotkey.

Yep, this seems like it would be an easy one. too bad I can't install my CS4 on my mini, I've been using it for a long time and muscle memory gets the work done.
