I was watching a video course on Lynda.com (Advanced Affinity Photo for Desktop) and the video for creating your own macros. The video shows recording a macro where the first step is to create a selection from a layer. When I try that, I get Macro Recorder - Cannot record "Selection From Layer". Am I missing some setting that I need to change to allow this or is it not available on the Windows version? The course appears to be recorded on a Mac version of Affinity.
This is my second attempt at this question. The original has had 34 views and no response. I can't believe it is that difficult a question. Of course it's possible it's the reverse and so blindingly obvious that no one's bothered to take it too seriously ........... :( In AP I can create selections from a layer by cmd clicking in the layer icon. In PS if I hold down the shift key I can add each selection to the previous selection to build up a 'compound' selection. This doesn't work in AP because it's assigned to luminance selection. Is there an equivalent or different way of combining the selections from multiple layers in AP to create a single compound selection? It's a tiny thing but it's very convenient. :)
