Champing

Affinity Designer includes a lot of great keyboard shortcuts. These shortcuts make things so much easier.

The tools menu has a lot of great shortcuts enabled by default. For fun, I put in the shortcut letters (abcfghimnpvyz) in an anagram generator to see if some words might come out to help remember some of the letters.

The biggest word to come out was: Champing

Toolbar shortcuts

Here's what "Champing" represents:

C Corner Tool
H View Tool
A Node Tool
M Rectangle Tool
P Pen Tool
I Color Picker Tool
N Pencil Tool
G Fill Tool

Most Popular Keys

These are the four most popular toolbar shortcut keys that I need to learn and start using. Learning these will save me a lot of time.

These are the most common tools I use:

B Vector Brush Tool Drawing
H View Tool Move the canvas around.
T Text Tool Type some text.
V Move Move Objects around the canvas

The initals BHTV is Beverly HIlls Television. That won't help remember the shortcuts, but it is interesting.
