I've tried multiple ways to google this question so please know I tried to find my own answers!
I do digital scrapbooking and want to replace PS with Affinity (PS has become slower and sluggish).
So how it works is usually I use a template which has a bunch of squares, circles, etc, that you are suppose to 'cover up' with papers. These are created by graphic designers and sold in 'kits' which include background papers (JPGS) and then PNGs are used for the other elements (flowers, leaves, whatever the kit is about). So I need to be able to clip these JPGs to the objects on the template which isn't the quickest process in Affinity but I find Affinity to be much quicker in terms of rendering and processing. There are some shortfalls, like not having the ability to key-bind "Clip to layer" but I am not experiencing incredible lag when I've got about a hundred smaller layers on my template - so that's a plus in a big way.
Anyways, my issue is that I want to drag my layers into the layers palette like I can in photoshop. I select a layer where I want my PNG to sit above and when I drag it onto the canvas, the PNG will be ordered just above the currently selected layer. I realise it's possible to do this when creating a new pixel layer, but I can't find a way to do this when placing a new object onto the canvas via drag n drop.
Is this even possible?
