Ok, I get it, each line or curve drawn gets it's own layer. Sometimes this is more of a pain when I am trying to edit. I know you can group the layers, however it still isn't convenient when going from one  curve to another. Is there any way at all to put these lines or curves on one layer to make it easier to edit them, like other apps do? I am working in vector here.Forgive me if this question is in FAQs, but I do not have time to go through them all.

Hi Dhussell,

You could try selecting all of your curves then go to Layer > Geometry > Merge Curves

Thanks

Note that if you do this, all your merged vectors can have only the same set of fill & stroke colors, line widths & styles, etc.

Does it make any difference in practice? In Affinity  Designer you make a layer first and all subsequent paths go there; in other software you make a layer first and all subsequent paths go there. If you do not make a layer all paths are layers (that is: paths) in layers palette; in other softwares all paths are paths in layer palette layer.
