  1. First off, I was using the latest Beta build when I did my testing. Now to the topic at hand. I have noticed several issues with merging layers in Affinity, specifically Photo, that make them not function as well as I had hoped. I have made videos showcasing issues where merge selected and merge down do not properly rasterize the objects that should get rasterized when using them. Also, even in the cases where they do work, the new layer gets moved out of position every time (I was using an artboard canvas after porting the file over from Publisher). Desktop 2019.08.06 - Desktop 2019.08.06 - Desktop 2019.08.07 - These issues are what I would consider bugs. Here is what I think needs fixing. Merge selected needs to automatically rasterize every selected object in your layer stack so you can can properly merge them together. Right now it does literally nothing to Groups, Shapes, and other types of special layers that aren't Pixel Layers when selecting them, which is not how I expect this feature to work (see Photoshop). Merge Down also needs to automatically rasterize every object below it, so if a group of hundreds or even thousands of objects are below the layer, Merge Down needs to rasterize that entire group and merge with the layer you wanted to merge down with. Right now you have to rasterize before being able to use these merging options, which should not be the case. Speaking of rasterize, this feature doesn't rasterize every selected objects in the Layers panel, thus making the previous issues quite annoying. Rasterize needs to always work on every selected layer, not just one layer at a time. Finally, merging layers should always keep the newly created layer stationary. No moving around afterwards. It might have something to do with me using an artboard, since I don't recall this ever happening with a regular canvas. P.S. I know I found another bug regarding merging that I didn't have a chance to record at the time, so once I find out how to replicate it, I will try to post it here.
