I have just moved over from PhotoShop to Affinity Designer.

With PhotoShop I used to be able to use a "MAGIC ERASER" tool to remove the background on an image with only one click. Is there such a feature on Afinity Designer?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @Barfly1959. :)

Affinity Designer is more like Adobe Illustrator than Adobe Photoshop, but even in Affinity Photo there is only an ‘Erase White Paper’ command. For a coloured background you would need to first make a pixel selection and then delete it; there is a Background Erase Tool, but although you can adjust the tolerance it doesn’t have a ‘flood erase’ mode as such.
