2. AD: Solid outline, transparent fill?

Do you have a way of showing me what you mean? If I select and drag them above the blue triangle nothing changes. I do want to clip off the white lines.
3. AD: Solid outline, transparent fill?

I need to get an outline to overlap some lines in a design. How should I approach this? I have been trying to create a second triangle to sit on the first triangle, effectively sandwiching the white lines between two layers of black. But if I select the white box with a red line through it - to remove the fill color from the top triangle - the outline also disappears.
4. Top layer being colored by bottom layer

Nailed it! It was the luminosity blend mode. 1000 thanks!
5. Top layer being colored by bottom layer

You can see what happens when I turn the bottom layer on and off. Colored version is as it should be - with bottom layer off, bw version is with bottom layer on.
6. Top layer being colored by bottom layer

Is this what you mean? If this is the problem, how do I fix it? I can't seem to drag the bottom layer across to make it a separate layer.
7. Top layer being colored by bottom layer

The top layer of a book cover is being somehow overlaid with the color of the bottom layer. They are clearly top and bottom, and the only way I can see the right color for the cover art is by turning off the bottom layer. How do I fix this - and keep them separate? I have tried copying and pasting the original artwork into a new file, but when I put in a background, again the cover art takes the color of the background.
8. How to set angle of pyramid shape in Designer?

Is there a way to set the angle of a pyramid, or any other shape, rather than having to calculate that then enter dimensions?

10. Erasing curve in Designer

Solved! Thanks Alfred
11. Erasing curve in Designer

How did you do that Alfred? It is the top of an L, which I cannot move without pushing the whole design out of place. Am I able to grab the top of the L and adjust length? Do you convert it to a node?
12. Can't open Designer image in Photo

I talked with Apple, and it was something to do with not having the correct account Apple ID. Once I'd signed in properly I could reinstall Photo with the latest version.
13. Can't open Designer image in Photo

Error message says: the file contains features from a later version of Affinity. How do I solve the problem? When we were offered a free upgrade to Version 1.6 I could only successfully upgrade on my Macbook Pro, but for some reason I could not upgrade on my iMac, which is what I use for all graphic work. Is there a way I can upgrade for free at this point? And would the upgrade allow me to open the image I need in Photo?
14. Erasing curve in Designer

How could I get the white line reduced in height? And how I would I ensure that the line retains the curve at the top? I cannot simply move the object down, and I can't seem to use the layers system in Designer as successfully as I can in Photo. So if there is a neat way to erase the top of the line, while retaining the curve, that may be most helpful. Thanks
15. How to make small movements in Designer?

How do I make tiny movements of an object without typing in values? Do I hold something else down and tap arrow keys?
16. Free Content included with 1.6 ('Till 16th November 2017)

I cannot find the update on the App Store, or the option to turn Welcome on, or any results for 'welcome' when searching help. Any other advice?
17. How to connect objects in Designer?

Just starting with AD, and need to connect circles with lines, then repeat, to make a network image. I want to be able to move the connected circles and lines freely, as well as lock them, if that makes sense. What is the best/easiest way to do this? Any tutorial videos on this? Many thanks
18. How to create arrows in Affinity Photo?

What is the easiest way to do this? I have tried grabbing png files, but I don't know how to separate the black arrow image from the white background. Any tips?
19. How to bring back dialogue boxes?

I created an adjustment layer, but had to move its placing - and now the window/dialogue box has disappeared. How do I bring it back so I can make the actual adjustment?
20. Easiest way to create yin-yang/paisley shapes in Photo?

How do I separate the black and white shapes from one another?
21. Easiest way to create yin-yang/paisley shapes in Photo?

Thanks - this is useful. But what I want to do is to have two separate elements so I can merge them in a different way. So I need to know how to manipulate the tear shape. Or - how to separate the yin yang symbols.
22. Easiest way to create yin-yang/paisley shapes in Photo?

I have used the tear tool to create the basic shape, but am not sure how to distort this to get the right final shape. What would be the easiest way to do this?

What is the transparency tool? And where is it?

Here's the image. You can see the clear lines of the gradient. How do I set this up so that it is smooth?

Where do I place this in layers?
