  • Short key command is the same on MacOS and Windows.

If by any chance the app doesn’t respond or being toggled on or off – it can be fixed by doing 2 things:

  1. Just hover the app with your mouse cursor.
  2. You might have not toggled all the permissions needed for the app to run. Please check our Installation Guide.

You can also toggle the app manually by clicking the grey on\off button (or turn the app off by clicking it when it’s green).

Copy and Pasting

In order to Copy & Paste a text, for example – copy a Hebrew or Arabic text from Word and pasting it into Affinity Designer – you just need to make sure the app is toggled (in Green).

Then just copy and paste the text into Affinity Designer.
