  1. Hello, I'm very new to Affinity. I downloaded the trial to see if it is something I want to purchase. I have an ai file (as well as a pdf) that was created in the latest Adobe Illustrator. If I open the file in Illustrator, I'm able to see hidden layers. (I'm working on a label design and have several options I'm considering) When I attempted to open the file in Affinity, I'm not seeing the hidden layers. Is there a way to view those within Affinity? Thank you.
  2. In Affinity Designer even though layers are hidden or the visibility is switched off I can still draw on them but the drawing doesn't show up. This seems counter-intuitive to me. To me, a hidden layer should be locked while it is invisible. This problem is compounded because I have to keep scrolling through the layer sub-menus to hide or show individual items and then occasionally I accidentally select the layer below the one that I'm working on and then I draw something (not knowing that I'm on a different layer) and when I add colour, it doesn't show up because it is invisible. This could be fixed by two things (I've put in a request already for the first one some time ago) a "Hide/Show" individual shapes with a key command so I don't have to continue scrolling and scrolling through huge lists of layer sub-menus (just like command + 3 in Illustrator). This makes managing documents with lots and lots of shapes so much easier. The second is to have Hidden Layers unselectable or locked while they are hidden. Maybe there is a good reason that I can't think of for this. If so, could someone please enlighten me. Thanks!
