How to hide unwanted part of effects on layer?

Recommended Posts

I have a question, explained detailed in my screenshot. I want to add some volume to the flat layers by adding some shadows effect, but i need to keep this layer effect inside the figures perimeter. How this can be done in right way?

Duplicate the 3 objects and remove all layer effects. Layer, Geometry, Add to make it a single object. Select new object in Layers panel, mask to below.

Exactly, what i was looking for. In Corel it looks like PUT IN CONTAINER. But your suggested solution is also easy. Thank you, Mick, for fast response :)

Your welcome. You'll find Affinity software is very different from CorelDraw. Some things it does easily, some things it does easily once you know how, and some things it can't do at all.

Affinity is awesome piece of software, many thing it has from the start, but Corel not implementing a lot of easy (but usefull) things for decades.
