I'm currently trying out the Affinity Photo trial, coming from an extensive Photoshop background. One part of my workflow in Photoshop for painting complex backgrounds is creating vector paths to help create numerous selections and details that can be used as masks, or paths for effects, etc.
I've been trying to duplicate this in Affinity Photo, but find that each created shape is on its own layer, and when I try to select a different layer, the previous one's lines disappear, making it impossible to draw shapes in relation to others. The closest I've gotten is having the shapes filled, so they show up without the nodes, but that is a very primitive workaround.
Is there any way to work on multiple shapes/paths on a single layer and have the nodes be visible so they can be easily tweaked?
Thanks for any info you guys might have
