    Sorry! I was clicking on actual image rather than the layer. This is a very useful feature especially that I can apply effects to it as well.

    When I right click there is no option to 'Mask to Below' only 'Rasterise to Mask"is the nearest option!

    When in the Pixel Persona the drawing tools are not visible or could they be or does it mean jumping from one Persons to another?

    Thanks also for this method. Once again this is a first for me as I have never used masking before!

    LOL I've never used Pixel Persona before! Interesting - I might use this again some time! Thanks for the tip. What, in a nutshell, would be an overall reason to use this persona?
  6. Is there any reason why I cannot Subtract a circle from this image in the attached file? Subtraction.afdesign
  7. The problem with sending the file is that is very personal and not something I would want to share on a forum however I'm happy to share it privately it that is possible. Its do with the recent passing of my beloved wife.
  8. It gets worse! AD 1.7 has made it very difficult for me to edit a 40 page (artboard layers) created in the previous AD. That is why I want to somehow reload the previous version of AD. I can't do it from my Mac's Time Machine as it says the file may be corrupted.
  9. Another problem! Why can't I click on an artboard and see it highlighted in the layers tab? If I click on the artboard in the layers tab then the artboard becomes highlighted. An artboard does become highlighted in the layers tab if I click on an object on the artboard.
  10. I think I've got another legacy problem! Previously I could get a guide line to show on adjacent artboards and now I can't. It makes it difficult to line-up margins and page numbers. Note: I'm using artboards as pages each on a separate layer.
  11. An image that I created in the previous AD has changed in AD 1.7. The image was a photo that had a black stroke border of a particular thickness. In AD 1.7 the image's border just shows up in the layers as a curve and solid fill with no stroke thickness. I need to add new images with matching borders but cannot discover what the original stroke thickness was. Do you need a screen shot from me?

    OK. When I checked Time Machine and found the last previous version of AD it said I couldn't open it as if may be corrupted. When would it have been automatically updated to 1.7 so I can check the most recent earlier version?

    I originally purchased AD at the time it was first published. My email address then is now defunct so I can't sign-in to the Affinity shop. How do I re-subscribe to Serif so that I may check-out my downloads and product keys?

    BTW where would I find the previous installer?

    No I didn't try the fix because it is too different for me and I do not want any more bugs. I'm too long in the tooth to handle update changes etc. I really got used to the previous version and know where everything is. My contention with software updates is if it works OK then leave it. Why is it necessary to make what amounts to cosmetic changes if it foesn't change functionality? As I said in a previous message, why waste development time making cosmetic changes when the time could be better employed developing requested features?
