I am using affinity designer, I have a few objects grouped, three text objects and a background image, from top to bottom, in that order in the layers palette.
I can select any object by clicking it individually, or by selecting it in the layers palette, however when I drag across multiple objects I keep selecting the background layer, either in conjunction with the desired elements or instead of them. Is there any way to stop either an individual layer from being selectable or perhaps prevent any locked layer from being selectable?
I am aware that being able to select locked layers is by design but for me it seems to cause more issues than it fixes, is there a way to stop locked layers being selectable? At the moment the only solution is to turn that layer off visually but I still need to see what I am working with just don't want it to be selectable.
