I am at Page 82 of the Affinity Designer Workbook and followed the instructions to change the Inner Glow layer effect from Normal to Multiply, Screen, etc... but I don't see any change happening. I have a couple of questions:

1) Where can I see the 2 colors that should take part in the blending effect? I only see one gradient color in the Eyeball layer.

2) What should I see by changing the Blend mode in the Workbook example?

Can you confirm the Designer Workbook page number and chapter as Pg82 is part of the Core Skills and aligning and distributing. When adding an Inner Glow, you will only see the single Colour of the glow you wish to apply. Unless you click the Colour box, change the top dropdown to Swatches and the second to Gradients and it will show any that have been saved. The gradient fill of the shape will be shown in the Fill section on the Context toolbar.

When you apply blend modes the change can be very slight depending on the setup.

Confirming Page 82 of the Affinity Designer Workbook, Edition 1.0, reprint 5. Objects --> Blend modes.

Regardless, if i go to the Core Skills file and play with the blend mode for the shadow layer or the eye layer, I don't see any visible change to the object. It might be just a bad example from the book that has very minor changes.
