  1. Aha! Rasterize. Okay, I didn't realize the image layer wasn't rasterized. Thanks a million, it works smoothly now.
  2. Thanks for the workaround, @toltec. I tried it and it works. I do want to use the selection as a clipping path to drop out the background on a placed pixel image. After several failures (when I tried to delete the inverted selection, the entire image disappeared) I discovered that the placed image has to be embedded. My placed image was a jpeg and apparently you can't embed a jpeg(?). When I tried it with a PSD image, it embedded and I was able to do my editing. As far as I can tell, the Affinity documentation doesn't say anything about this re. jpegs. Anyway, I achieved what I was trying to do and thank you very much for your help.
  3. When I bought Affinity Designer, I assumed I could use the pen tool to make precise selections. But I can't find any way to turn a shape made with the pen tool into a selection. When I Google "Affinity pen tool selections," I find that you can do it with Affinity Photo. It seems like pen tool selections should be available with Designer too, since it has a pixel persona. Am I missing something?
