  1. The functionality is in Pixel Persona, although the menu item is absent. Cmd-click on the object's thumbnail to get a selection.
  2. I don't know whether there is a terminology document, but I learned the terms "clip-nest" and "mask-nest" from many posts by forum moderator @MEB.
  3. @Old Bruce's "nested" layers are clipped (clip-nested) layers, and his "clipped" layers are mask-nested layers. When that confusion is cleared up, you'll see that my message was correct.
  4. It does work on clip-nested layers. The problem is with mask-nested layers: the parent and all children become selected.
  5. Objects of type Pixel will be resampled twice in your scenario. Resize document with resampling: Pixel objects will be resampled but Image objects will be non-destructively scaled. Scaled raster export: Pixel and Image objects will be resampled. Non-scaled raster export: non-destructively transformed Pixel and Image objects will be resampled. (Affinity Designer's document resizing (see Dimensions tab of File > Document Setup) is entirely non-destructive and the control for a resampling method serves no purpose.)
  6. Yes, that's the way Affinity performs a scaled export: each object is scaled and then an image is composited, instead of a full size image being composited and then scaled. You must first create a composite image at full size and then export a scaled version of that. Some alternative ways to make the full size composite: Document > Flatten command to destructively flatten all to one Pixel object Layer > Merge Visible command to create a composite Pixel object without destructively flattening the document select all objects then do Edit > Copy Merged followed by File > New From Clipboard to produce a separate document containing one Pixel object export at full scale to a lossless PNG or TIFF and then open that in Affinity as one Pixel object
  7. Welcome to the Affinity forums. A workaround at the present time is to put the alpha in a Mask layer stacked above a completely opaque RGB Pixel layer and then export PNG.
  8. Before resizing the logo, select the Curve objects (or a Group/Layer object that may be containing them) and enable "Scale with object" in the Stroke panel. Now you should be able to resize with expected result.
  9. Nest the Adjustment inside the particular object you wish to adjust.
  10. If you draw an H-shape, it will have Alternate fill mode, whereas an H from a font will have Winding fill mode and hence the different result when an object is subtracted from the drawn shape versus the font glyph.
  11. There is no such option at this time. You could request it in https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/56-feedback-for-the-affinity-suite-of-products/
  12. Welcome to the Affinity forums :) It maybe depends on whether the embedded PDF is in pass through or interpret mode. I'm not at my Mac to test that.
  13. @EvGa said "embedded" but used the word "file" instead of "document". @EvGa also made clear that he/she understands the difference between embedding and linking.
