    Yes! Much as I like the UI I agree that there is room for improvement.
     
    I hope that refinements such as these will be considered.

    Hi, I've been using Affinity now for two professional projects and it's good.
     
    I noticed there are a few panels which can be consolidated to use the same template as the layers panel, this would lower the API surface area and improve maintainability over time. Just my 2 cents.

    when I have more time to do mockups, I'll take a shot at my perspective on a few other aspects of the application...

    What I did was think about components and what parts belong to what. And for this model to be clear from the UI / UX perspective, it means that the other colour options should be separated into their own panels due to their unique attributes.
     
    In my experience, I would recommend removing the colour wheel--it adds no functionality that the sliders can't provide and adds a level of complexity to maintain in the long run.
     
    I can't keep working for free, so, this is it from me.

    This is a real problem. If I need to select multiple elements from a group by making an area selection, I always select elements from other groups (or sometimes no element at all!)
    The isolation mode is more than a feature, it's an essential tool. Selecting every element one by one in the layer box is very tiresome.

    I agree with the others. This is as essential as being able to create a group. I simply can't use Designer without this.

    I see what you mean MEB, but it still feels very cumbersome. For me, it would make sense that once "inside" a group I'd be able to only select the elements on that group and then I'd have to double-click outside the group to exit.
     
    Do you know if there's any planned feature that will make this easier?

    SeanJM reacted to Hans in Affinity Designer - Layer isolation mode   
    Option click on a layer in the layer panel switches to 'isolation mode' showing only the selected layer content. That is a very useful feature which could be enhanced by allowing to set a different temporary background colour. The chequered background makes it very hard to see/edit white objects.
