Affinity Designer: Transparency Tool Non-Functional


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon,

The transparency tool for my Affinity Designer program (Windows-based) no longer works. I can click the icon for the tool, but it doesn't function. It doesn't bring up options to change (linear, radial, etc.). Nada. Did I miss something? I'm running the latest release as far as I know. 

 

Please advise? I love that tool!

The options for the Transparency Tool should be on the Context Toolbar:

Do you have the Context Toolbar showing? (View > Show Context Toolbar) If so, what does it show?

Absolutely nothing. 
 

Ooooh, and YES—it IS a pixel layer. Created a background w/ noise filter in photo & just opened it in designer to work. So I should export it as a jpeg or png & then import? 
 

You guys are amazing! Thank you—I’m self-teaching at home, so excuse my ignorance, please?
