  1. Hi, title says it all, restart did the trick, but I just thought I'd let you know! Was a very small, new file, literally a couple of shapes in a layer group. I made a new blank layer that I was going to use as a background but was unable to drag the new layer down in the Layer Panel so that it was underneath the group. In fact I was unable to render layers by dragging at all. The file started life as an eps from shutter stock if that helps any? Thanks Wayne
  2. If I want to move an object down or up in the hierarchy of the Layers panel I can use CTRL+[ or ]. But what if I want to move it out of a group/symbol/layer? The only way is to use the "release" action, right? Is there a "release" action keyboard shortcut?
  3. Can you please add "Find in Layer Panel" to a toolbar in Affinity Designer/Photo? I can't add a shortcut in macOS for it because it doesn't exist in a menu, outside of right clicking something on the canvas. More specifically, I can add it, it just doesn't work. I'm finding myself having to find several dozen layers individually for adjustments because AD's cmd+shift+v often times fails to apply the same sized effects to different layers. This happens to me a lot; I don't know the cause (I haven't resized the layers, but I have rotated them).
  4. I think there should be an option to add a new layer directly above the selected layer. Currently as far as I can tell, adding a new layer adds it to the top of all of the layers in the panel. This is not ideal when you have hundreds of layers and you just need a new layer above the current selected layer. For instance when you are organizing your element layers and need a container layer to dump a bunch of layers into... If this is already possible can someone let me know? Cheers!
  5. I know you can rename an object by selecting it on the layer panel and then double-clicking on its name. The problem is that if you have a large document with thousands of objects you first need to select the object you want to rename on the document and then spend a looooot of time locating the highlighted item on the layer panel so that you can double-click on its name in order to change it. This should be a lot easier. You just need to add a "rename object" option on the layer menu (and/or the context menu you get for the selected object). We use Affinity Designer to create graphics we then export as SVG files. The name of each object in SVG files is usually VERY IMPORTANT so that you can work with them on web applications. Naming objects should be a lot easier when you have multiple objects on the document. Another way to fix this situation would be that whenever you select a SINGLE object on the document, the layer panel would automatically scroll to that object on the list to make it visible to you (instead of you having to manually look for it on the list, which is a pain if you have hundreds of objects). Once the object has been located for you on the layer panel, you can easily proceed to rename it by double-clicking on its name.
  6. Hello Members of the Affinity Photo Forum, I`m new to Affinity and somehow managed to hide the layers panel. I can`t fin a way to make it visible again. If somebody would be so kind to help a newbie? Greetings frecher7
  7. Hey guys, I just discovered 2 broken pieces of functionality compared to the previous beta. Please see the attached video for both: 1. Can't select certain objects. They are not grouped, locked, etc. I can click select, but not drag select. I already checked the Preferences. 2. Control clicking on an object and then selecting Find in Layers Panel does not work. I can email the master AD file if necessary, just let me know. AD beta - broken functionality.mov
  8. I don't know how I did this, but the layers panel on the right has disappeared. How do I bring it back? I have enabled the tools, dock, toolbars in the view menu, but cant find the layers panel option in any menus.
  9. I like to have my layers palette set up on the left side of the screen, and my other palette on the right, with the document in the middle. I went to move the entire Layers palette off my normally docked position (left) and it would appear and disappear on the screen and not snap elsewhere. When I finally let it go, I got this strange overlap. Attached is what it looks like.
