Affinity Designer I find unlocking a layer challenging when I have hundreds of layers. For unlocked layers, Find in layers panel works a treat. But for locked layers this option is greyed out (I guess because the layer cannot be selected) and I have to scroll through all the layers looking for the one I want to unlock. What's the smarter way to do this? Thanks in advance.
I'm long familiar with the master-page concept. Publisher's own ways of doing things, I don't know much about yet. I created a master page with two columns per page and added a text frame for each column. On the document pages, I see these text frames' sizes and positions are locked, which makes sense. The master pages also contain small text frames containing "Page #" (with "#" being a field). I want to remove the page-number information from one of the document pages. When the text frame is selected the status bar indicates that the item is locked and to edit it, I should unlock it. But if I right-click the object it has no Unlock command in its context menu. • What unlock command might the status bar hint be referring to? This appears to be the way to do it... Go to the document page in question. In the Layers palette, right-click the Master page associated with that document page. Select Edit Detached. Make the change to the page in question. Then press the orange Finish bar that appears near the top of the screen. • Is that the right way to do it? Or are there other approaches that are considered better?
I have Affinity Photo (1.7.3) and have recently bought Affinity Designer (1.7.3). Both running on iMac (OS 10.13.6 - latest compatible for older iMac). The layers panel is not working properly in Affinity Designer (works fine in Affinity Photo). No matter what I've tried I cannot manipulate or drag the objects or layers in the Designer Layers Panel. I've tried creating new files, new layers, new objects, restarting Designer, etc. I've tried locking and unlocking layers, unlocking all layers from the Layers menu and from within the Layers Panel. I've viewed the online instructions, tutorials, videos, etc. There is no mention of this problem and no apparent solution. Anybody else experienced this or found a solution? Thanks so much.
