  1. Nesting doesn't discriminate between groups and layers. You need to nudge your brolly over on the left.
  2. Welcome to the forum @Zuzug What you are doing is creating a mask, you need to drag the pattern layer over the rectangle shape and make sure the cursor is about half way over the name of the rectangle layer, you will see a horizontal bar slightly indented once you see that left go of the mouse button and it will nest the pattern layer under the rectangle layer. Like this.
  3. My sister has a Radeon GPU on Win 10 and uses Affinity Photo with no hiccups, I'll find out what model she has. What is your full system spec as it may not be your GPU, it could be other hardware. I'd flesh out your sig with a more detailed system spec, i.e motherboard, what ram brand etc. Also see this new post:
  4. Yup, Lots of fixes at the moment, one step forward half a step back. Make a category for the duplicate brushes you make and edit, rename the new category to "Ians Epic Brush Set" lol!. If you want to edit a brush think duplicate first, then edit the duplicate brush, this way you keep the original (base brush) and can mess around with the duplicate to your hearts content. Once you have the brush as you want it, you can right-click and move it to the category you made earlier. Don't forget to periodically export that category for backup purposes.
  5. Welcome to the forum @ou_grimley Which are you using? What about copying all the layers and creating a new document, pasting the layers into the new document and trying to save that? If it saves, close it down and open it again to make sure it opens ok before closing the old document down.
  6. Welcome to the forum @Tom Pleasant Textbook is quite a generalised term, but regardless have you looked in the resources section of this forum: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/11-resources/
  7. Correct, Affinity's vector brushes are a raster image along a vector path so not pure vector, more a hybrid brush.
  8. welcome to the forum @Gary2316 You would use the crop tool from the left side toolbar. https://affinity.help/photo/English.lproj/pages/Tools/tools_crop.html https://affinity.help/photo/English.lproj/pages/SizeTransform/cropping.html
  9. @KelRao A screenshot of your layers panel and/or upload the PDF for us to look at please.
  10. Sorry was just doing the washing up lol! What are you clip masking with, is it possible to show the layers expanded so we get an idea of how the document is built?
  11. Nothing is committed until the Develop button is clicked, clicking on the develop button is a destructive process so you cannot go back and edit the edits you previously made.
