First some background:
My name is Josh & I am an illustrator, graphic artist, and graduate from the Academy of Art University, SF CA. If anyone has read the news AAU students are given an Adobe license for the Adobe Suite along with their attendance . I worked with the Adobe master suite for my entire tenure. But, due to Adobe changing their software into a monthly charge, hundreds of graduates have gotten their Adobe licenses revoked; leaving illustrators, graphic designers, and artists of all types without the tools to do their jobs.
That being said, I found Affinity Designer & Photo. Ever since downloading I have not been disappointed and can easily say that Affinity software is a very big threat to Adobe. I love the software and its professional quality for a great price & no monthly subscription! it is so dependable that i have done away with Adobe Illustrator & Adobe Photoshop. And that is one relationship that is hard to break!
So my feature request is as titled above. Attached to this post is a digital vector painting I did with Affinity Designer (I plan to do more). The filigree is separated into separate paths for editing as well as most of the border. The process of going back in and finding what is locked is arduous. I wish that there were some way to unlock all layers and to quickly lock them. For example, in Illustrator you can click and drag down the menu of layers to quickly lock or unlock all layers. Then, if you have some locked and some not, you can SHIFT + CMND + A to select all and then OPT + CMND + L to unlock all and any layers that may be locked.
That is one feature I would love to see in the next update. It would make intricate and files with many layers so much more workable and less frustrating.
I look forward to participating more with this forum and learning more about the incredible Affinity Suite.
