1. The Affinity Designer icon won't stay on Apple Desktop. I press to open and the response is "It's already opened." Nothing on the screen. iMac High Sierra. 2 hours of searching for ways for it to open.

If it is open (running), it should appear in the Dock. However, it may not have any open windows, which can happen if you clicked on the red 'traffic light' window control widget at the top right while its workspace window was visible but no document was open. (That just closes the window but does not quit the app.)

To get the window back, click on its Dock icon to make it the frontmost app (the menu item to the right of the Apple menu icon should now say "Affinity Designer") & then from the File menu choose New, Open, or Open Recent. After opening a document, the workspace window should reappear.

BTW, in System Preferences > Dock there is an option "Show indicators for open applications." If you enable it, a small dot will appear under the Dock icon of each open app.
