Wrong inpainting-fill shortcut?

Recommended Posts

Hi, on Affinity Photo 1.7.2 on Mac, the default keyboard shortcut for "fill with primary color" is set to option-backspace, but when I use that key combination, it does the inpaint instead, even though I don't have a shortcut set for inpaint. If I set a different shortcut for inpaint, option-backspace still does the inpaint. If I set a different shortcut for "fill with primary" (such as cmd-backspace), that shortcut does work. So, as a workaround I've set "fill with primary color" to cmd-backspace for now.

Is there somewhere else that the keyboard shortcuts might be coming from?

The default keyboard shortcuts are listed in the Keyboard shortcuts help topic. Note that by default, there is no Edit > Fill With Primary Color shortcut & the default for Edit > Inpaint is option-backspace.

@R C-R I'm going based on the keyboard shortcuts that were configured in the keyboard shortcuts preferences. And changing those, again, didn't actually  make them change.

My main point is the factory defaults are those listed in the "Keyboard shortcuts" help topic, not the ones for whatever reason you see in the preference. (The factory defaults are also what you would get if you click the "Reset" button.)

But that said, I wonder if you are maybe confusing the Edit Menu > Inpaint function with the Inpainting Tool. There is no default keyboard shortcut for the Inpainting Tool. You can assign one to it, but like the other tool keyboard shortcuts it must be a single key shortcut -- modifier keys are not allowed with tool shortcuts.

@R C-R No, I'm not confusing it. When I press option-backspace, it does the edit>inpaint action, regardless of what I have my keyboard shortcut set to. And I'm trying to fill with my primary color!

Later today I'll record a screen capture so you can see what I'm talking about.

Okay, so I reset my keyboard shortcuts and option-backspace was indeed defaulting to "inpaint."

However, removing that shortcut and setting one for "fill with primary color" continued to just try to inpaint instead.

Here are my keyboard shortcuts: note the 'fill with primary color' being option-backspace and 'inpaint' being empty:

Here is what happened when I pressed option-backspace after wanding a selection:

Not that it is of any help with resolving your issue, but when I remove the Edit > Inpaint shortcut, I get a system beep when I press CMD+Delete Option-Delete indicating that there is no shortcut assigned to that key combination. If I assign that shortcut to Edit > Fill With Primary (or any other function) it works as expected.

cmd-delete, or option-delete? I seem to be able to bind any other shortcut key and it works; option-delete seems to be hardcoded to edit>inpaint, at least on version 1.7.2 for Mac.

I mean as a workaround I had opted to use cmd-delete instead and that was working, I'd just rather not have this way of accidentally doing an inpaint fill that takes forever and can't be canceled based on my muscle memory of these keyboard shortcuts from years of using Photoshop.

Sorry, I meant Option-Delete -- fixed now.

Interesting. What version are you on? I've checked for updates and 1.7.2 is the latest, but I know a lot of folks here are on the beta version (which I really need to try at some point).

Hmm, weird that we're seeing such different behavior then.

It is possible there is something amiss in your Affinity Photo user settings that a reset to the defaults would correct, but since this removes all custom settings, & it is a PITA to backup/export them all, I consider it a method of last resort.

It’s been doing this ever since I first installed Affinity Photo and its only now that I got around to reporting it (I bought the program hoping that it would support its future development knowing full well that it wasn’t quite ready for my use at the time). I also haven’t made any other changes to my settings.

It is still possible something is amiss in the AP user settings.

Nope, did a full master reset, then changed the keyboard shortcuts, and option-backspace is still doing inpaint.

OK. Is there any chance you have some third party add on installed that might somehow interfere with setting or using keyboard shortcuts?

The only thing I can think of is Magnet, but that makes no difference if I quit/disable it. I also use Karabiner to remap some of my keys but, again, no difference made. And none of them have anything to do with keyboard shortcuts in other apps.

Also, my edit menu shows the shortcuts having been remapped:

I have the exact same issue with Affinity Photo 1.7.3 on Mac. Trying to customize the keyboard shortcut for "Fill with Primary Color" to Photoshop's Default opt+backspace it seems that will not be overwritten.

No matter what I do opt+backspace activates Inpaint. Please fix :-)

Inpaint brush tool works fine, however using the selection tools and the Edit > Inpaint does not.  I am using version 1.8.1 on Mac.  However I found if I quit the application completely and go back in it is now working.
