Affinity Photo Shortcut keyboard for selection tools...


Recommended Posts

I don't know the ipad UI. In the desktop.app you find this option under settings-->shortcuts.

I'm trying to use a keyboard with Affinity Photo iPad, but I've noticed that there isn't any shortcut for any selection tool.

In the Selection Persona, the following Keyboard Shortcuts are supported -
"h" - [ HandTool ]
"s" - [ SmartSelectionBrushTool ]
"p" - [ PolygonMarqueeTool ]
"m" - [ RectangularMarqueeTool ]
"e" - [ EllipticalMarqueeTool ]
"o" - [ RowMarqueeTool ]
"c" - [ ColumnMarqueeTool ]
"w" - [ MagicWandTool ]
"r" - [ RefineSelection ]
"f" - [ FeatherSelection ]
"g" - [ GrowShrinkSelection ]
 

If these aren't working for you, could you please confirm for me;

  • Which iPad are you using?
  • Which iOS version are you running?
  • Which version of Affinity Photo?

Is there any way to set up personalized shortcuts?

Unfortunately not currently, but we hope to add this feature in a future update!

In the built -in guide they're not noted.

They are listed under 'keyboard shortcuts'. :)

Is there also a Shortcut to pass from Phot Persona to Select Persona?

It's funny: I'm using the Italian version and in the Keyboard Shortcut list there's all, but not the Selection Persona....

 I suppose it's a bug to fix.

Thanks for your report, I've logged this with our documentation team :)

Just another key question: is there any keyboard shortcut to shift from Photo Persona to Selection Persona, avoiding to select them directly form the UI?

Unfortunately not currently, apologies!
