There are standard conventions for shortcuts in graphics programs that I miss when using APP. Especially spacebar + mouse movement to scroll the image. Just implementing that one would remove huge frustrations for me.
Hi Steven, yes I agree. I've send your request to Mabula.
I guess, I can add the spacebar as an option as well, that should be no problem I think. I have added it to my ToDo list to implement.
But as it is now, it is not working well for you, or is it just confusing because you are used to space bar + mouse movement?
Simply click a mousebutton and move the mouse? If you do not move you will zoom in/out, if you move, the image is moved 😉
@mabula-admin just confusing. You get used to using the Photoshop shortcuts.
Simply click a mousebutton and move the mouse?
That doesn't work in the tools that require mouse selections.
+1 from me.
There are (unwritten) standards in GUIs that I am missing in APP big time. Selecting, unselecting, scrolling, previewing, ... with the spacebar and arrow keys for single files or a whole bunch of files with the shift or control keys. Also a fast preview ... now you have to wait for each file to show its content. In macOS this is all happening in realtime with the CMD-Y command. Extremely fast and convenient. I would also appreciate similar options and easy-of-use in APP.
On macOS APP could greatly benefit from METAL, Accelerate and the CoreImage frameworks. Programs like Pixelmap Pro and Affinity Phot take full advantage of these frameworks and are extremely fast. I know, this is a lot of extra(?) programming work and not really in the focus of APP... just saying ...;-).
