Just going to bump this, since this is still completely killing my mood and love for Affinity Designer. I've moved over from Photoshop beginning this year and haven't looked back, but this silly bug being in the program for years now is unacceptable in my book. Please fix this soon, because if I hear the barrage of error sounds again when trying to type in a new layer name, either me or my laptop (or both) will go out of the window
Ok, maybe a little overdramatic but still, it's super annoying that I have to wait a second before typing in the layer name. It surprises me not more people are jumping on this, since this is a very common and frequent action to perform while designing.
Thanks for your attention, and hope to hear from you soon. Peace!
