On new document, document dimensions must fit the image in clipboard, like in Photoshop.

Recommended Posts

Hello.

Little feature but so useful.

In Photoshop, when you copy an image (from any source), or selected part of image (from Photoshop), and then create a new Photoshop document, the dimensions of the canvas fit the clipboard's image dimensions.

But not in Affinity Designer, who just keep the last dimensions...

Thanks!

Perhaps File > New from Clipboard is what you need, rather than File > New?

I don't think you're the first, and you probably won't be the last :D

It still would be nifty to have new document use the clipboard dimensions.

It would have to be optional, and controlled by something in the dialog. The clipboard dimensions often will have no relationship to a new file one might want to create.

More often any new document will need to be of clipboard dimensions than same size as last time you used command. I would think. Work contents and flows vary. I can think some users always will want the new document to be 1920X1080.

Anyway you can always enter new values, there is no need to have any other controls, I would think? Or should there be a button "previous values"?

I was thinking of a "use clipboard size" button or checkbox.
